Dear all, i just found some yellow stains in my bunny’s porcelain water bowl. I rubbed them away and rinsed it with hot water and normal temp water for a while. It looks completely normal now. My bunny’s been using it for around a year Is it normal? How do u guys wash it? Also, what water bowls do u guys use? Thanks a lot!

I have this happen all the time! I hate it and clean the water dishes daily to make sure they stay clean.

I usually let it soak in white vinegar first for a few mins then wash it off with soap and water.

I noticed they will only pee in their water bowl if it is near their litterbox or hay rack. So I moved it away from their litterbox and now no more pee in waterbowls =)

Don't freak out too much. I don't say this as a particularly knowledgeable rabbit owner (I've had mine for 2 1/2 months), but as someone who wishes to point out that, in the wild where they're actually from, they don't drink from pristine water sources that we humans give them in captivity.

I like to use white vinegar and brush it out with a new toothbrush - it does take a little bit of elbow grease and some time, but it’s worth it. Just rinse it well after. And make sure that you’re cleaning - just empty the water, give it a rinse and refill - the bowls often (preferably every day).

Agreed, however, mine are spoiled to the point that they will sit next to their living-room water bowl and look at me until I bring new water. Even if I just re-filled it an hour ago.


They just like pushing me around...

Thanks! I do refill it twice a day :)
