      Hello, does anyone have any tips on how to clean pee stains off my bunny’s feet and nose? I’ve tried natural baby wipes but they don’t seem to work. Also, how can I avoid this problem once I get her clean? I’m scared of her getting Urine Scald.

      If the urine staining is an excessive amount, it may be indicative of a health problem, like a UTI or mobility issue.

      If it does not seem medically-related, you can try cleaning litterboxes more often and/or using more absorbent litter so the urine is pulled away from your rabbit’s fur faster and is more dry to the touch. You can find different characteristics of rabbit litters here: https://rabbit.org/faq-litter-training-2/#litter

      Unless it’s really bad, I would just leave it be. Your rabbit is probably going to be her best groomer. If you really want to, see here for safe spot-cleaning methods: https://wabbitwiki.com/wiki/Bathing_rabbits#Spot-cleaning

      I agree. If the problem is the litter, then changing to a more absorbent litter should do the trick. Then the stained fur will resolve itself after some time.

      Thank you, the litter helped. I used to use just hay and a pee pad, apparently that wasn’t enough for her white fur. But is it okay for her to occasionally eat her litter? I notice she does that. BTW I use Oxbow Eco-Straw Litter.

      Nibbling is fine. You will want to discourage actual eating of the litter though. Large amounts can cause an obstruction. Have you considered a litter screen?
