calcium pee

    How much is too much white stuff on fleece?

    I have two boys, and lately the white stuff has been increasing. Bigger areas in places where they pee more frequently. Where they sleep and relax there’s usually one or two small spots. At first it was a small amount, which I know if it’s calcium that’s normal. Lately it just seems to be...

    Question about hard water/water softener.

    I’ve had guinea pigs for 5 years, we moved into an older house last year and I noticed calcium spots on the fleece that I hadn’t had before (or if I did it was rare) and at the time I didn’t know what they were. I didn’t really pay much attention to this because they were small and I had assumed...

    Is this normal?

    This looks to be calcium spots on their potty pad that goes in one of their litter boxes. Is this normal? I’ve been laying off the veggies for a few days in case they were getting too much. They also don’t get pellets daily.

    How to reduce calcium in diet?

    Hi, Please can you help as I’m becoming a bit calcium obsessed. Our guinea pigs have white pee at the moment. They’re not in pain it’s just white and this is a bit of a new thing. I’m pretty sure the hay isn’t alfalfa but am checking. I’m trying to reduce the green leafy veg that is high in...

    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...

    Queries about my piggies and if their health is ok

    So I recently adopted two sows and I’m taking them to the vets tomorrow for a check up just to make sure they are healthy and all is ok but there’s a few things I wanted to ask the forum just to make sure it’s nothing to worry about as I’ve got a list of a few things to voice to the vet just to...

    White powdery pee

    Hi. I’m a very worried Guinea Pig mum right now. I recently changed over to fleece under a week ago and noticed one or more of my piggies (I have 4 so it’s hard to tell which one) has been having white powdery pees daily. I’m not sure how long this has been going on for as I never noticed it...

    Too Much Calcium In Wee?

    Is this something I should be concerned about, thinking further down the line? I moved to fleece from shavings a week or so ago and this is the first time I've seen what I assume is calcium in dried-out wee. I know wee is often a creamy colour anyway and my piggies are behaving perfectly...

    Toast Squealing When Doing The Toilet.

    As mentioned in my other post, I'm having a lot of issues with the pigs health lately. Every now and again I noticed Toast squealing sometimes, I then realised it was when she was doing the toilet, but not everytime. I've also noticed an increase in calcium when she's peeing and sometimes it...

    Small Poos

    I've had a read on here and I've seen that small poos can mean not enough food intake or a digestive problem... I'm not sure if it's coming from Beans or Toast but I'm inclined to say Beans because I found the poos in the house that 90% of the time it's only Beans who uses it. I always monitor...
