    Default Peeing after castration

    Hi all,

    I had my male bunny Snoopy castrated two weeks ago. Before surgery he always peed in his litter tray but now he's started going in random places. Is this normal while he is recovering?

    I've tried a few Google searches but can't find anything on the subject straight after castration. Only that castration improves litter training!

    Has anyone come across this before?

    Appreciate your help.

    He'll be having a hormone surge. Give him 6 weeks, then neutralise everything but his liter tray with a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water.

    Our boy took about longer after his hormone surge post neuter. About 12 weeks to get the litter training back.

    Thanks all.

    I did call the vet and they thought it could be a water infection so heís on a course of Metcam for 5 days. The peeing has stopped so far, so Iím keeping my fingers crossed! I also added another litter tray which also seems to have helped too.

    Iím praying it stays this way!
