New Bunny!?

We got my son a dwarf rabbit for his birthday. The bunny has very yellow, orange, red colored urine. Is this because of a rabbits diet? The bunny is very healthy and friendly. He doesnt seem to have any pain or problems.

    That sounds pretty normal. Bunny urine will change color to a certain extent based on what he eats...for instance red leaf lettuce will end up in red color urine.

    Here are some great links since it sounds as if your are new to bunnies:

    rabbits should not hve any form of fruit or veg for the first 6 months of their lives as there digestive system isnt formed properly so it could be his diet thts causing this problem..i have a dwarf rbbit who is 7 yrs old early next year and that is good coz dwarf rabbits have a shorter live expectancy than normal rabbits and dont usually live past 3 years old

    I think this is normal however you should bring it to the vet for a check up just to make sure it doesn't have any problems like coccidya. http://www.rabbit.org/
