Bubba bunny is about 6 years old, prior to his mother (Oreo's death April 3, 2012) he was peeing outside the littler pan.   a month after her death he started to pee inside the pan again; now he is doing it again.  He is going in the same spot so I have a pee pad down,  He is eating, drinking, pooping, peeing and eating his hay like he should.  What do I need to look for if this is a medical issue or is this a habit now.  He does pee in the pan but he also pees put side the.  I scoop the liter and change the pee pad every day.


Does any one have any suggestion or do I need to change his veggies

Well, it would be a good idea to have an exam done to make sure it's not medical. If not, then you can go back to retraining him.

The veggies really have nothing to do with his behavior.

I had this same issue with my first bun when she was 6. It turned out that she kept getting infections and needed antibiotics. The doc also put her on painkillers, in case her hips were hurting her. She had been eating and pooing just fine.

Make sure you get your buns treated and possibly an x-ray. Mine passed 6-months after she started peeing outside of the pan. We got the x-ray 5 months in, and by then when they could see more of what was going on, we couldn't do much. The stress of the sickness caused GI stasis.

I agree with the others, rule out a medical problem first.
