    Bladder/bowel issues and calcium questions

    This is my first post and is quite long as everything has been a bit of a saga recently! Massively high levels of stress and upset at home, but I'm feeling optimistic about my boy's recovery. I thought it would be helpful to get some advice/guidance as this forum has been so helpful to me, but...

    Urinary issues?

    Yesterday evening I noticed Penelope had HORRIBLE smelling urine. She doesn’t squeal when peeing and is acting completely normal otherwise. No weight loss either. It had also left a deposit behind and I rubbed it between my fingers and it was very gritty. I know it’s normal if it’s powder like...

    Died suddenly after vet said recovering

    My 2 year old girl developed wet bottom and a suspected UTI a week ago. Xrays and scans suggested no stones or uterine infection but that it was confined to bladder-the bladder walls thickened and possible bladder sludge. She was put on high dose baytril (and painkiller) and almost completely...

    Bladder sludge!

    Hi, My boar Hubert had bladder stone surgery about a month ago now, and recently the sludge has returned. I changed his food to selective gluten free nuggets, he only gets 50g fresh per day and unlimited hay. The veg he gets is, cucumber, green beans, celery and pepper. I feel like I'm...

    Powder or sludge in guineas pee?

    Hi everybody! I was holding my baby, Minnie. Minnie peed on a towel I was holding her with and her pee smelt insanely bad and potent. Also this stuff also appeared in the area she had peed. Now I’m not sure if it was there before but I messed with it with a toothpick to see it’s...

    Piggy bladder sludge/too much calcium in wee

    My guinea pig has been hunching whilst wearing and crying out whilst doing so, so I took him to the vets and they managed to extract some of his urine which proved that he has a large amount of calcium in his bladder which is piling up and stopping him from urinating properly. They have told me...

    Sperm rod

    I took my 5 month old boar to the vet on Tuesday as he was squealing and straining to pee. They felt around to see if they could feel a stone. Nothing, so we were sent home with painkillers and antibiotics. He seemed to be alright on Wednesday, not 100% but better than he was. Come Thursday...

    Bladder Sludge ?

    Hi, to update you after my previous post I visited an exotics specialist today who showed us the X-ray our local vet had taken (they told us it was clear) and pointed out an area of possible sludge in the bladder. She explained that we could have another x-Ray under anesthetic to confirm if...

    Clearing Bladder Sludge Effectively

    Hi friends! I'm feeling heartsick tonight. My sweet Whistler has been diagnosed with bladder sludge. It's my first guinea pig with sludge! So, I'm convinced she's just more naturally gifted in developing it than others. ;D I could use some advice, even if it's just to keep doing what I'm...

    (I'm from the United Kingdom) Hi guys. My piggie Oreo is just about 3 years of age. She's always had some health issues and has just been genuinely unlucky. A few months ago she had an operation for an abscess on the side of her stomach. That went successfully and she recovered. For the last...
