    Default Help!! My Bun is has blood and clumps in her urine?

    Hi guys, I just wanted to get some advice here. Recently my rabbit has been having red pee (for the past week or so) and at first I ignored it. I am aware that I did recently re-introduced some leafy greens and fruits, mostly kale, sweetheart cabbage, and raspberries after she had around a month without. I did think it was just pigmentation and high beta carotine levels in her system so I decided to cut back a little, and this soon led to me cutting out all of these foods in general. Now she is just eating regular rabbit nuggets, water and hay but the redness still persists and I am beginning to think it may be much more serious. I have now noticed quite a few clumps in with the redness, and it definitely seems more like globs of blood than overall pigmentation. The clumps I am very concerned about, the latest one I took to analyse, and it was a stringy squidgy substance covered in blood. I thought it was diarrhea but it doesn't break away or squish flat with acute pressure, t's quite spongy and does not look like feces at ALL. Very hard to explain, but it reminds me of a minced beef likeness.

    For some background information: I have had Hermione for 6 going on 7 years, I rescued her but at an unknown age. I would've guessed she was about 1 1/2, but I am definitely not an expert on that front. So I'd say she is getting on in her years (though she has the attitude and energy of a young 'un haha!) I have heard of uterine cancers and infections, however most of what I read imply that the rabbit has to be intact and Hermione is spayed.
    Despite the blood and clumps, she seems very well in herself, she isn't lethargic or refusing food, definitely not depressed.
    I haven't yet seen her in the action of peeing, so I do not know if she has any pain with it, but I plan on spending the whole day with her as it is the weekend, and I'll keep close watch.
    I purchased a dipstick test, I'm pretty sure it's not the carotine but I'd like to be sure, and it'd give some insight to what is in her pee.

    Thank you for reading! If you can help or offer advice please put any suggestions below, I do plan to see a vet soon especially if it persists, but I might be a lot clearer on all this with you help! Thank you!

    If she is passing clumps of blood in her wee then she needs to be seen by a Vet today Regardless of whether or not she seems to be ill within herself.

    There are several possible causes of haematuria (blood in wee) and only a full examination by a Vet can establish the exact cause and provide the appropriate treatment.

    Hi there

    In my opinion I would see a vet very soon. It being the weekend, if you can catch an appointment before they close all the better.

    Good luck and I hope all works out for Hermione x

    Hi everyone, thank you so much for the help. I did go and see a vet as soon as I possibly could, which was the saturday afterwards. I noticed Hermione wasn't herself, she had suddenly became very lethargic and disoriented, very skittish at some times, definitely not my Hermione. The vet said after examining, her body heat was well below the average, and with these other other symptoms she was very poorly. They took her in for care, and I went home for the evening. I got a call later on saying that her gums were very pale, they took a blood sample and noticed she was severely anemic, due to a rupture somewhere in her body. I was distraught, but I knew she was extremely ill and weak. It was one of the hardest decisions I had to make, but I decided to go back and be with her in her final moments. Things have been so so hard since then, hence the late response, but I felt that it was a good idea to tell you all.




    Rest in peace, my bun-bun, I will always love you <3
