My bunny has an extremely messy looking bottom, it is very brown and smelly. The other day I put her back end into some warm water and tried to clean it, but she still keeps messing. Her stools are hard most of the time, so their is no diarrhoea, just one yucky looking underpart. I guess she finds it hard to clean there, so what can I use to help clean it.

I have the same problem with 2 of mine.. Can I suggest a visit to the vets, and see if they can give you the same as what I use, hopefully you will be able to get it in New Zealand.. Its called Bio Lapis and comes in a powder, you sprinkle it on their food and it helps their tummys if they have delicate stomachs... Also have you changed bunnies diet recently, sometimes certain foods may not be suitable for your bunny.. My vet has suggested I dont feed my 4 fresh veggies, just continue giving them their normal food with the bio lapis sprinkled on, and access to the grass in the garden.. Keep us informed..

Thanks for the tip. The pet stores here are really useless when it comes to providing things for rabbits. They have heaps of stuff for dogs and cats, but few stuff for bunnies. My brother lives in the UK though, so if I can't get Bio Lapis here, I will ask him to send me some. I haven't changed her diet, so can't be that, I thought it might be old age, but she is only six. I think a vet visit is on the cards.
