A two-year-old, male neutered French lop rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) was presented for urinary scalding and wetting. Radiographs showed a small gas-filled structure caudodorsal to the urinary bladder that was shown to be connected to the urethra just caudal to the bladder neck and cranial to the external urethral sphincter in urethrograms. The clinical findings and the surgical procedure to correct the condition are described. To the author's knowledge, this is the first report of a urethral diverticulum in a rabbit.
