o.o.

I went into my room today and noticed Sunny's pee (she had obviously just done it, the paper hasn't absorbed it yet) is a dark orange color. Is this something to be worried about? She's been eating, drinking, pooping, playing etc. normal. The only reason I ask is because it's usually a light yellow. Thanks =]!

Usually my understanding is that orange pee means either dehydration or that you have given your bun certain types of woods... Apple wood makes pee dark orange.  If both of those are ruled out, you might want to monitor to see if it continues and if so make a vet appointment

I bet you've seen this before, but here's the HRS article on red or orange urine:

Our bunny pees orange sometimes, too.

Totally normal-many people freak out if they see red pee but that's fine too You'll notice certain foods turn their pee different colors.
Silty pee, pee with sediment or that looks sandy-or white pee is another story and can indicate bladder sludge or excess calcium.

As written above, it's totally normal for pee colour to vary. Its nothing to worry about. You might be able to check the bottom of each bunny and see if there is a bit of pee stain to work out who did it. Not a 100% fool proof way to check however, as they may step in each others pee...

I'll lock this thread now as it is from 2010. If you would like to start a new topic, please CLICK HERE.


Whoever says "It's only a rabbit" has obviously never loved a rabbit.
