My rabbit stinks, any relieve?
So I have a female rabbit (she's about 4) who isn't spayed and lately, when I pick her up, her stomach smells like her pee but she doesn't have pee on her. I keep up near her cage, it does get stinky but she never gets her pee or poo on her. Can the smell occupy into her fur? She's not sick, she gets a plate of veggies a day (endive) and she has fixed hay. I don't want to take her to the vet because she's so afraid every time I do. Any suggestions, should I bath her? I heard infant wipes but I don't want that to make her sick. Help?
i wasnt being sarcastic lately saying that maybe she could gotten into something that made her urine stink
Does your cage own a wire floor or a solid floor? If you have a wire floor, next the pee should never touch her belly. Rabbits pee diagonally backwards, so the stream of urine would never come forward towards her belly.
Do you have a solid floor on the shut within? Perhaps she's peeing in the corner (or box, whatever) and then laying surrounded by it.
If you have a wire floor, the only entry I can think of is that she is not feeling well and is lay down and peeing on herself. Does she act OK?
yes, you can use baby wipes on her. Or even a showery washcloth and scrub her belly to get her clean. She shouldn't be smelly, and her stomach certainly shouldn't have pee on it.
Hopefully she's feeling OK and freshly being lazy about her hygiene conduct.
