Rabbits/female unspayed bunny clear viginal discharge

Question
I have a female unspayed bunny of 10 months. She has reached her sexual-maturity age and her litter habits have gone awry. She sprays on me, all around the house...that is normal, i know and not at all bothersome to me.
But of late (since she has reached adulthood), i have noticed a clear discharge from her vagina. It is not urine because it smells different. It happens even while she is laying down and she seems quite unperturbed about it.
Is this normal? Should i be worried?
Please advice.

Answer
Hi Asmita

Sorry to hear your bun has odd discharge. It doesn't sound normal at all and I would recommend a vet investigate as soon as possible. It could be a urinary/bladder infection or it could also be a womb infection or similar. Definitely needs further investigation and some x-rays.

Hope I helped a little.

Expertise

I can answer questions around the welfare of pet rabbits, basic health queries including gut stasis, diet worries, bonding questions and the proper welfare standards around housing rabbits (i.e. no wire floors, no small cages and they should be kept in properly bonded de-sexed pairs in very large enclosures). I cannot answer showing questions nor complex breeding issues as I do not agree with either, seeing the other end of the story in the world of rabbit rescue.

Experience

I have two 7 year old rescue rabbits and volunteer for a well established rabbit rescue here in the UK, both physically doing cleaning out etc and I am also their events and awareness co-oordinator, helping educate the general public on proper rabbit keeping, this means I have to ensure all information I give is correct and matches current welfare standards.

Organizations
I belong to the RWAF (Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund) and volunteer for a major rabbit rescue.

Education/Credentials
I have no formal education on this subject, however read everything I can to keep up to date with current welfare standards and health problems. Both my rabbits have sensitive guts and constantly keep me on my toes.
