Collecting Urine Sample
« on: January 14, 2012, 02:03:08 AM »
Hello, so in my pre-vet tech lab at my school we are currently doing urinalysis and I offered to try and bring in a sample of my rabbits urine.. He is litter trained so this could help but any tips on how to collect it? thanks!

You could do that, but you do risk contamination. Obviously its going to be contaminated once the urine hits air but I'm looking for the most sterile way possible
