Painful and Frequent Urination in Rabbits



Patients with urinary tract diseases without an obstruction are typically managed as outpatients, while rabbits with more severe forms of the diseases will warrant hospilization, especially when multiple body systems are failing. Medication will also depend on the severity of the disease(s). Antibiotics and pain relievers, for example, are often prescribed, but must be given with caution.


Living and Management


Frequent follow-up examinations are recommended, as complications may arise during treatment.
