Hi, I'm a new bunny owner and frankly, a rather scared one as such.
I got my albino bunny; Limon, two days ago. He's very friendly and he quickly warmed up to me. I can pick him up now without trouble and he even snuggles to me when I'm in his pen.
When I first saw him pee, the day I got him, his pee was clear and yellow, quite normal actually. But just this morning, his pee turned milky yellow! I don't know what I did wrong, and I read online that milky pee is a sign of stones?!
I fed him the pellets he was eating from his original place, gave him two small pieces of carrots as treats. And gave him a "taste" of banana. He's hooked on it now.
Well, now I'm thinking that perhaps it was the water that disagreed with him? Cuz I've only given him tap water. I don't know what's in it, but maybe calcium flouride...? I switched his water to rainwater , and will try deep well water if his pee doesn't clear up in two days.
Has anyone had this problem before with a bunny? I haven't fed him anything other than carrots, bananas and his pellets. Please, I hope you could give me advice on this since Limon has grown on me!
Unfortunately, we don't have that here in the Philippines. Philippine bunnies are destinied for a hayless existence. Best alternative we have here is water spinach which is what most bunny owners use here. And I'm not too keen on having hay shipped in from the US.
I'm keeping a "pee journal" on Limon at the moment. We're going to the vet tommorow if his pee doesn't clear up by morning. He's got me enslaved by now.
A Hayless existance? Have you tried looking for some hay? Hay is the hugest part of a rabbit's diet...
There has been one other Philippines resident that has been able to find hay.
talk to BB about getting a bunch of mini-bales,, theyre really compact so you could fit a lot in one box,
youll want to get a quote for USPS priority mail with 3rd party insurance (u-pic or shipsurance) so they can declare a lower value for customs and still have everything insured.
the largest box size you can ship USPS to phillippines is 79 inches length + girth. We use 18" x 18" x 12" (45x45x30cm) boxes for countries with that size limit. that should hold at least 9 mini bales. you do nto want to use fedex,, it will be 4x the shipping cost and you will get the piss taxed out of you by customs. We spend thousands a week on international shipping so i'm totally comfortable handling the shipping aspect if BB doesnt want the liability.
