Could be cystitis/ a UTI

Bladder sludge/stones is another possibility

A few more bits of info' here :

As long as she is not actually straining when she wees and she is eating/drinking/pooing normally and is as active as usual then it's unlikely to be an 'Emergency' and a Vet appointment tomorrow should be OK xx

Yeaaa that was my fear

She doesn't seem to be straining it's more she just goes to pee and just drips come out? It's weird. She doesn't look uncomfortable when she's peeing though. She seems fine in herself, which is a positive.

Uti would be a sample.. Stones/sludge is that an xray? Ultrasound?

Thanks Jane xx

A test of her urine would probably be the first step

When the Vet palpates her bladder he/she may be able to feel if there is any tenderness/signs of sludge/stones. If that were to be the case then an abdominal Xray probably be suggested x

I don’t have any experience of this but I hope it’s nothing serious, sending lots of vibes xx

So she has sediment in her bladder, but apparently most buns do and it's fine... She's on loxicom atm and I'm gunna put that sugary probiotic stuff in her water to make her drink more over the next few days, gunna try get a pee sample next week, but just hoping it's inflammation and will sort itself out.. If not I guess flushing? Or ultrasound but she'd have to be put out for that, whereas she just about sat still today for her xray. No stones at least! Not sure what I can do for her tbh :(

Poor girlie, I'm currently nursing Treacle bun through a UTI. She was definantly straining though, so made it quite obvious, thankfully abx are kicking in. Hope your girl is ok soon xxx

I'm so glad to hear the abx are working for Treacle :) yea Clementine seems fine in herself, just gotta figure out what's happening, I really hope she's okay, or will be okay, I always worry about her, she's so strong but seems genetically doomed...? I'm hoping my vet can work out the weight thing too because that could be something apparently :(

Clementine is too much sometimes [emoji38] she's such a good girl, she's not had medication for like well over a year and I offered her the syringe and she just took the loxicom [emoji7] she's always been good but normally it takes a few times before she realises it's okay to take it, but she just instantly took it, was very very cute [emoji7] if it was one of the other 3 there'd have had to have been bunny burritos [emoji38]

Good girl Clemmy :thumb: Treacle had her mouth clamped shut, but she's a gentle girl and doesn't struggle. I think they must know we're trying to help them, hope so anyway :)

Good girl Clemmy! I hope the weight thing is not connected. Claws crossed it's not and she just enjoys eating lots

Thanks everyone :) I'm so glad she's doing okay in herself, hopefully we can get to the bottom of what's causing it too :) x
