    Default Weeing when lying down. Is something wrong?

    Doughnut is due to see the specialist next week anyway but her litter habits have slipped recently. When she was ill she weed everywhere as was pushing down to toilet and urine was coming out but I don't think she's unwell. She wees on her fleece which I'm used to but she has weed on the wooden floor in different places. She's not straining. A moment ago she was lying fully stretched on her fleece and urine just sprayed out. She jumped up then lapped some of it up. Never seen her urinate lying down. Just wondered if anyone had any ideas

    Is she dry underneath ? Is she drinking more than usual ? Has she ever had issues with bladder sludge ?

    No she hasn't had issues with that and urine is clear. She drinks a lot anyway so no change. She's lying down and going to sleep now so don't want to grab her but she seems to be dry

    Ooh poor Doughnut

    When is she seeing the specialist? Is that visit connected with the weeing or something else?

    It does sound like she may have a bladder infection. Has she had this before? They can always take a sample and do a quick test in the surgery, or else send a specimen away for a more thorough analysis

    She's seeing mark for her six month vaccine. I've noticed she's just throat rubbed and made like her wretching sound so given her more zantac metacam and cisapride. Thankfully she's taken it from the syringe so isn't feeling too bad. Strange as she's toileting fine and that doesn't normally happen. She'll go into an episode and not toilet and be straining so hence why she's wet then once she's toiletted she's fine. She had one uti but that's it. Think the medicine has kicked in now as no noises and trying to go to sleep in between cleaning herself.
    would her urine be darker if she had an infection as it's clear

    Not necessarily, especially in a Rabbit that always drinks a lot.

    She's seeing mark Friday but I'm off Tuesday as have knee injections starting Monday so can't walk around. I can always take her earlier but she does seem happy enough now but she's been toileting outside her litter tray and inside it for a couple of weeks but still flopping over on her side

    I guess I may be getting some baytril then. The only medicine of about 8 that she's had that I struggle with her taking! She loved Septrin though. Is there any difference it those two. Think he prescribed one of those when I said she was tiddling in different places

    They are different types of abx. Both can be effective for treating UTIs depending on the precise bacteria involved (a urinalysis would establish this).

    Good that you already had that appointment booked.

    Darker urine won't necessarily indicate any infection. I'm glad the meds you gave her have begun to work
