      Help please! My rabbit has a place in my room that she always poops and it will not stop no matter what I do. It used to be confined to that one spot and it was irritating, but now she is pooping everywhere she goes, and now she is peeing wherever as well. I do not know how to control this problem and I need it stopped ASAP.

      They always leave droppings its marking their territory
      But as for the peeing could you leave a litter tray in the spot she does it most.
      Then only let them out supervised until you have trained them a little because some rabbits habits are hard to break.
      Then every time they pee in the wrong place put them in the right place to pee. Bun just doesn’t understand yet and its as frustrating and confusing for them as it is for us.
      Be patient you’ll get there in the end

      She’s hit an age of maturity. She feels the need to mark her territory with both poop and urine. If you can I would suggest getting her spayed to see if that would help solve the problem.

      An infection could cause this or like others say maturity.
      85% of female rabbits get ovarian cancer by the age 4 ( correct me if the age is wrong) if they aren’t spayed.

      So i got a litter box and have had it for about 2 weeks. At first she wouldn’t get it, but she does not. She was using it almost every time, but now she went back to pooping everywhere. I literally mean everywhere. I don’t know if i did something wrong or not. What are your thoughts?

      My guess is hormones. When the litter tray was new she was probably poopong in it to mark it and now it’s old news.

      Try putting hay on the litter in the box. This will encourage spending more time in there. Bunnies love to eat and poop at the same time.

      Every time you see her pee in the wrong place put her in it sharpish.
      If its just poos my bun doesn’t even notice when she poos I don’t think so its hard to train them to poo in their as most are territorial.
