Urogenital disease in rabbits
RABBITS are now well established as the third most popular pet in the country, with many being kept indoors by vigilant owners who spend more time interacting with and observing their pets. This means that clinical signs of urogenital tract disease such as haematuria and dysuria are being detected sooner and more frequently, allowing many conditions to be diagnosed earlier. Many more rabbits also have the benefit of being neutered, reducing the incidence of genital tract conditions. When investigating a urogenital disease, a thorough history, including diet, husbandry and neutering status must be taken before the clinical examination.
