    Red/Orange Pee

    Recently one of my two guinea pigs (I can’t figure out which one) took a pee while out on a mat playing. I went to go wipe it up and noticed the colour is not normal compared to the normal colour of their pee. Does this look concerning? Should I speak to a vet or could it be something they...

    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...

    Peeing And Staying Outside During Winter

    Hello, my Piggy is 2months old (and he's single for now, hopefully we'll get him a companion soon). Since we live in a building, unfortunately we can't take him outside but we give him some floor time on balcony where he runs around and hides. His cage is also on the balcony and there weren't...

    I had my piggies out on a pee pad today while I cleaned their cage.. when I was done, I noticed one of them had peed a bright pink color. It dried the same color. Is this normal?

    White Spots In Cage For Two Weeks

    My Guinea pig is about 10 weeks old and for two weeks now she's had white spots in her cage. I know it's excess calcium, but how long does it last or what should I do? I've changed her piggy food thinking it might have too much calcium and she hasn't had celery or carrots in awhile. Thank you! :)

    Piggy Peeing?

    Ginny Pig has started a new thing where she pees on my mom... She'll sit for a cuddle for about 15 minutes and then she'll just let loose with the pee and poop right on my mom. She has only ever peed on me once when she was on antibiotics. She usually poops when being held so that's not a...

    Smelly Cage!

    Hi everyone, I've been using fleece for my babies cage and I recently bought some new fleece. I recently got another piggy and my cage is starting to smell a little more? I'm not sure why. I was thinking of putting puppy pads underneath to soak up any pee? Or does anyone have any better...

    Bb-8 Is Going To Need A Bath!

    I noticed BB's nice bright white patch was not so white at weighing time this weekend. I think she must have napped on pissy newspaper! I gave her a wipe down with a warm damp cloth, much to her disgust, and the mark got removed, but when she was dry she still smelt bad so she's probably going...

    Powdery Pee?

    I was just cleaning the pigs cage out (I have fleece) and noticed a few dots of white/cream "paste" is the only word I can use to describe it. I used my finger to see what it was, it was a very powdery consistency so I'm thinking maybe too much calcium in their diet? I can't think how.. They...

    Bath Time For Toast

    So my little Toasty needed a late night bath because she peed and poo'd all over her hair (she has long hair at her bum) and it got in quite a mess.. Needless to say she was not amused..

    Fleece Isn't Working..

    Okay so I've made the change from woodshavings to fleece. Only thing is when the pigs pee, it just sits in a puddle on the fleece... :td: I'd like to use some kind of fleece but the piggies are running around and getting pee over their paws I've got a fluffy fleece with a layer of paper...

    Brown Pee..

    Hi all I have transferred to fleece in the past few days and noticed brown pee stains, I have read a bit about it and seen that when pee reacts with oxygen it can turn brown.. I've had my piggies on white fleece in the run tonight and watched for a while and the pee is coming out white/cloudy...

    Help? Guinea Pig Can't Pee And Is In Lots Of Pain...

    My Guinea pig, lucky (ironically), is a female and she's about 4 and a half years old. She's got a sister who's much much (about .5lb) heavier than she is and my Lucky got much thinner over the past few months, you can feel her bones all over. Recently I've heard grunting and squeals (painful)...
