Preputial stenosis as a cause of urine scalding

In some male rabbit, the preputial opening becomes stenotic (phimosis) and is so small that the rabbit can only dribble urine rather than direct a jet of urine away from the inside of the legs or under the tail. The condition is the result of another problem that causes inflammation of the prepuce and scarring. Urine scalding for another reason can initiate the problem and initiate a vicious circle. In this cause the prepitial opening is not visible.
