He is Peeing outside of the cage


Our rabbit Lucky has a Safeguard cage with urine guards on it, somehow he is backing up against the guards and peeing outside of the cage, anyone got any ideas how to stop the urine from coming outside of the cage? The urine guards are about 4 inches.

I've always used litter boxes both inside and outside of my cages. Have you tried one yet?

Another thought is you get some small pieces of acrylic (like 8 x 10) and attach it to the inside on each side of the corner that he uses as the toilet area. That way the urine will be deflected down inside the cage. I just use small binder clips to attach the acrylic to the cage wire.

Also, I don't know if your rabbit is neutered. If not, that could make a diference as to whether or not he chews or trashes things in his cage. Also, how large is your cage and does it have a wire floor?

This will take you to photos of my rabbit, Tyler, and his cage and pen.

I use plastic around my rabbit cage. When I had 2 they would fling/spray pee EVERYWHERE!! Turns out I had a male and a female so that quit when they were separated. They sell huge rolls of thin plastic (like really thick shopping bag plastic) and I cut that to fit the back and sides and tacked it to the cage. It's really cheap so you can replace it everytime you clean the cage if you need to. Not pretty, but it works for me.

We were thinking of adding plexiglass to the area where he does it.

If you place on the inside like mentioned above, the urine will remain inside the cage. Is he neutered? If not, then he may be harder to litter-box train or keep him from marking/spraying.
