Understanding Urinary Problems in Rabbits

Red Urine in Rabbits

  • Not Always a Concern: Red urine without symptoms of urinary issues is generally not worrying.
  • Potential Causes: Influenced by diet, medication, and environmental changes.
  • Special Note for Female Rabbits: Red urine in unspayed females may indicate uterine cancer; immediate vet consultation advised.
  • Blood in Urine: Not always visibly red; straining to urinate is a more significant indicator.
  • Physical Trauma: Can cause blood in urine, but it’s a less common cause.

    Great product and speedy delivery.

    These tablets have been a total godsend for my girl who has bladder sludge. She has been on them for around 6 weeks now, her pee is less white and she is no longer uncomfortable! So much so she is now off metacam! Delivery is super fast too!

    This product has saved my bunny’s life by literally dissolving a bladder stone. I have x rays to prove it. He has so far had three bonus years on Sherwood Urinary Support and is still thriving. Bladder stones came back three times, and with two surgeries in just over a month he was due to be pts when a large stone formed over the next month. After one week on Sherwood Urinary Support he was visibly better and after two weeks we took new x rays and the stone was gone. I give the tablets as prevention and more if he starts showing signs of problems. It goes away immediately. I can’t recommend these tablets enough!

    This product is amazing and I highly recommend it. I had never encountered the problem of kidney stones or bladder sludge until my poor bunny started to show signs of tooth grinding pain and discomfort when trying to do his business and his diligent work in the litter box stopped. It was looking like severe treatment options until I came across this product and started him on it. Within a week his discomfort had eased and he was back to business as usual. As he is a despairingly fussy eater and not keen on most fruity flavours, I did have to grind the tablets to a powder to get him to take them. Unusually he liked the Just4Rabbits apple quarter sample received with the order and I was able to coat small pieces of these with the powder to get him to take the tablets. It was such a relief to see him well again – this product is fantastic!

    Good product and this appears to be the only business that sell it in the UK.
    Speedy delivery and great communication throughout.
    My bun loved the little extras too.

    Fantastic product that helped get rid of sludge in my rabbit’s bladder. He is staying on this urinary support now for life. Very happy customer and a healthier bunny!

    Two of our bunnies have been helped by the cranberry tablets.

    Neither likes the taste, so I dissolve the tablets in a tiny bit of boiled water and syringe instead.

    It’s been a godsend for our sludge-prone buns.

    This tablet has had an incredible effect on my 6 year old Guinea Pig Sow in just one week! It has saved her life. She was given the worst possible news and option regarding bladder stones last Friday. I started her on these on Monday just gone and within 3 days! She had passed a substantially sized urolith.

    I’m astonished quite frankly and would recommend them to anyone, particularly those with older Guinea Pigs that have bladder stones/sludge and surgery is high risk.

    I’m continuing to give them to her for the foreseeable and will eventually drop down to half tablet a day for maintenance. Just a great product, thank you!

  9. Harriet Blackband (verified owner)

    I’ve been giving these to my two older guinea pigs for several months now and it does seem to help – although they won’t touch them in tablet form and I have to crush them up and coat vegetables in the powder before I can get it down them! My girls are 6.5yrs old and very healthy apart from their propensity for sludge, so hopefully this will support them for a while longer.
