        Hello everybun!

        We are so confused at the moment. We have been in and out of the vets with one of our bunnies Earl Grey over the last few weeks. After some bloods, which came back completely normal, and a x-ray, our vet says she sees a kidney stone in one of his kidneys. One vet says to leave the kidney with the stone in there, and to keep our bun on pain meds in case it was causing him pain.

        The other vet we sought advice from says to remove the kidney with the stone, in case it impairs the other kidney.

        His current kidney values are normal.

        Anyone had experience with kidney stones who can help us please?

        Both our buns are on a low dried pellet, low oxalate/calcium diet with mainly hay and forage.

        Thank you! 🐰 ♥️

          No personal experience with rabbit kidney stones. But I will comment on the fact that kidney stones are not that uncommon in all types of animals and people. Oftentimes, there are no symptoms. Unless the kidney stone is ridiculously large, then I don’t see why you would remove the kidney.

          Can you give us more information? What has been causing these visits to the vet? What are his symptoms?
