Hello RabbitsOnline! This is my first post, as I am in the hopes of getting some advice for my rabbit's problems. My rabbit Cotton has some birth defects, such as a weird bite and only being able to see out of one eye, but he also has bad incontinence issues. He hasn't always been incontinent, but throughout the past year or so it has gotten very bad. I give him butt baths every few days yet he still ends up soaked with urine and sometimes poop. His feet, inside thighs, and belly are all stained yellow so it is hard for me to tell if he is totally clean or not. His feet and inside thighs get soaked with urine, and he has been losing hair on the inside of his legs and a little on his feet. His skin is also a little red, probably from urine scalding. The vet says that he is pretty underweight and dehydrated, but they also said that Cotton's condition has gotten better since I started giving him baths which is really good news. I guess I am just writing this in the hopes of getting some advice in caring for an incontinent rabbit. The vet thinks that this is just caused by something in his blood that he was born with, but they said that it could also be two other things. One was something that I cannot remember at this time and that it was not treatable, and another option was rabbit syphilis? I thought that was just lesions, but I may be wrong. I would have to do some tests to determine if it is that and maybe it could be cured, but I kind of feel like it is just a part of his birth defects, as I have been researching about syphilis and E. cuniculi and other stuff that could cause incontinence and it seems like no one is having the same problem as my rabbit, but maybe it could be something like that. I sometimes ask myself if I should put my rabbit down but he eats a lot, doesn't seem to be in any pain, and seems to be curious about what is happening around him so I don't think I should. I am hoping that there are other owners of incontinent rabbits out there to give some advice. What are your cage setups like? Cotton lays in his litter box all the time which definitely doesn't help. I was thinking I could get him a comfier area to lay so that he doesn't stay in his litterbox, but I am not sure what kind of material would be good so that he isn't laying in his urine. Would a grate over the litterbox work with that? I use wood pellets for bedding, is there a better bedding that I could use? Also, he seems to pee and poop wherever he wants to, most of it goes in the litterbox only because he constantly sits there but he also pees and poops outside of the litterbox. Since he somewhat struggles to use his litterbox, would it be a good idea to just get rid of it and have basically his whole cage be a litterbox? He sometimes lays outside of his litterbox, but there is also little spots of pee there. The cage has a plastic bottom. In the past, I have tried taping baby socks to his feet so that the urine stays off his feet, but as you can imagine, that didn't last too long, haha! By morning time, the socks would be off. I have heard some people have used diapers, is that a good idea? He kind of has mushy poops, and I feel like maybe he isn't too flexible because I think he eats his cecotropes by pooping them out and then turning around and eating them, not eating them directly from himself. He is a Lionhead Angora mix, so he has a lot of hair! He gets some sanitary trims, but it takes him a long time to dry after his bath. I don't want to rub his hair too much with a towel because of his sensitive skin, and I have a hard time getting him completely dry. Honestly, I just really need some help. If you guys have incontinent rabbits, what are some things that have helped you the most? This is basically his only symptom other than some eye discharge (probably from his weird bite), does this sound like more than just a birth defect? I have attached a photo of my rabbit's stained fur to show how big of a problem this has been (also, my rabbit has white fur, is there any way to remove stains from the fur?) As you can see from the photo, basically his whole underside is yellow. I took this photo right after I bathed him today, so he is clean, his fur is just really stained so it looks like he is still dirty, which makes it hard for me to make sure that he is 100% clean. I apologize for all of this information and all of these questions in one post. I have never had to care for a disabled (?) rabbit so any tips and tricks for his care would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!
