Does anyone have any idea what would cause large amounts of blood in the urine. One of my lops sweet peahas just started this, it is a yellow puddle of urine streaked with blood. With all of my health problems with my Flemish Giant, it seems unbearable for me to have another sick bunny.

She acts just fine other than the blood, but pees constantly in small spots. I am bringing my lionhead to the vet tomorrow for her spay, and will be talking tothe vetthen.

When I brought Ben in for urinary problems she couldn't tell anything by looking at him but needed a urine sample, so I will try to get that before going to the vet tomorrow. Sorry I am rambling but it is so frustrating when I give my buns the best of everthing and still have health problems when there are so many bunnys living miserable lives without optimal conditions and they do fine.

Urinary tract infection? Kidneyproblems? I'd have her urine tested to learn exactly whatyou're dealing with. They can check the levels and tell youwhat's going on.

Is she spayed? If not, then there is apossibility that it's a uterine tumor. Or UTI or kidneyproblems like Carolyn suggested. Hopefully it's somethingthat is easily treatable.

She's been spayed since she was about 5 months old.

Then I'd be concerned about kidneyfailure/disease or diabetes, then build from there. Wouldhave her urine tested as soon as possible.

Probably a bladder infection if she pees a lot.

I had a guinea pig once that peed redbloodand it turned out to be a bladder stone from too muchcalcium. She had surgery to remove it and recovered nicely.

I talked to the vet today, and are going to start antibiotics to see if that clears it up.
