So the other day I noticed my litter trained bun, Tanger, peeing on the floor outside of his box and quickly herded him into the litter box.  Didn't think much of it and it hasn't happened again.  Last night my boyfriend observed Tanger, in what looked like, him straining to urinate.  He left the box without peeing and then jumped back in and this time he peed fine.  So I watched him this morning.  When he hopped in the litter box to go, he strained for a few seconds before he actually started peeing but then his body was slightly shaking while he went.  Not a hard shake but enough to be noticeable...I'm not sure whether this is all linked and if not or so if it's a cause for concern??

 

Thoughts, opinions, anything really would be helpful!   Thanks, guys!

If it looks like he is straining I would take him to the vet. It's a good sign that he is passing urine, but if he looks uncomfortable/different than normal he could be dealing with a bladder stone or bladder sludge. Urinating outside the litter box can also be a symptom of bladder problems.

Today he seemed fine when I watched him again -- my internet has been out for the past day so I haven't been able to post! Still think we should take him to the vet and get him looked at? Or just keep an eye on him and make sure it doesn't happen again? He didn't seem to be doing it today though.. Bunnies are so good at hiding stuff, it's exhausting watching for anything to possibly be wrong!
