I'm turning to you because I don't know where else to go now. My rabbit Kaori, one of three, may be the oldest (or not) and biggest and is the alpha. She is superfriendly. I've had her for three years and she's of unknown age. She is a Palomino. She started having a wet tail about two months ago, not poop incontinence, but urinary. She goes where ever she wants to, but usually in a few faithful spots. Sometimes she has had an accident since the advent of this problem, like a sudden gush of pee when I pick her up.
The vet found no stones with an ultrasound and put her on antibiotics. I took to also cleaning her bottom and treated a minor infection of her glands - not even sure if it was an infection, it may have been the last traces of one. But now, one month later, there is no sign of infection in her nether regions, but she still has such a wet bum that the fur on her tail matted and fell off, and the fur around her bum also thinned out so you see her skin. No irritation, but when there has been, I put Polysporin on it.
Her spirits are great, as is her appetite; the only other co-symptom is that she no longer will climb the stairs, as she falls off them more easily than she used to. So when it's time to go upstairs or outside she needs a pick-me-up. She is not acting disabled in any other way; she can get onto a chair and do her usual exploring. She can climb up the outside steps and she can climb down all steps.
I would really like for her comfort and her tail to not have this wet bottom all the time. Plus, it would help a little bit with the cleaning, though I have a non-wet-tail rabbit that pees wherever she wants to, regardless.
Has anyone gone through this before? Please advise.
