    I posted this before but cannot find the response, one of my girls is giving a thick creamy liquid discharge.

    she seems well, she eats plenty and plays and popcorns

    only from time to time de dar de dar............

    I recall the advice was its an excess of calcium in her diet

    where is she getting this and how can i correct it

    My girls have had this before. Are you should that the urine is thick or does it just look thick? What colour does it dry? (you could try soaking it up on kitchen towel) If it is excess calcium, try cutting back on calcium rich veggies. What dry food is she on as some of these can be high in calcium?

    I would leave her b then :) I was worried about my Eliza's urine as she currently has a UTI but have been told that white urine is normal in guinea pigs. It is when there is blood in the urine and / or it has gritty bits in it that there could be a problem x
