    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...

    Intermittent whimpering during urination/defecation

    Dear all! I am turning to you now for advice about a ~3 year old sow with an extremely mysterious case of intermittent whimpering/crying during urination/defecation. The symptoms started last summer(ish), but they subsided within a couple of weeks, with the vet (cavy-savvy) not finding anything...

    UTI/bladder stones?

    My piggy has been slowly but steadily losing weight; over the last 10 days he's lost 100g. He's a recently diagnosed dental piggy (January this year) so doesn't have much weight on him due to that, so he is now getting dangerously underweight (800g this morning). For reference he's 3.5 years old...

    Bladder stone?

    Hi guys, Sorry to be that annoying newbie immediately looking for advice. I found this on my pigs bed today, it looks like a weird poo with calcium deposits around it. The stone looking bit was like soft grit. I know its relatively normal for pigs to excrete excess calcium through urine, but...

    Questions After Vet Visit

    I've posted on here several times (so very sorry!) about having taken my girls to the vet on Monday, December 2 in large part due to the fact that the frequency of their poops had gone down significantly. They were prescribed Bactrim (SMZ-TMP) to take twice daily in case it was the start of an...

    Orange/Rust-Colored Urine, Result of Medication?

    My girls went to the vet on Monday, December 2 and were prescribed Bene-Bac Plus Microbial Gel (given by mouth once daily for 10 days) and Bactrim/SMZ-TMP (given by mouth twice daily for 10 days) to aid in what she believed was the start of an infection. Since then, I have noticed that their...

    High protein in urine?

    I bought some of those at home urinalysis dip sticks when we had a UTI scare with one of my boys. Since then, I have periodically been testing their urine for any abnormalities. Over the past few weeks, I have realised that the result seems to come up with high protein content (but nothing...

    Mucus in urine

    I’ve had my 2 month old skinny pig sow out for lap time and I’ve just noticed that after she urinated there was some mucus attached to her genitals. Her urine looks completely normal and there is no mucus in her urine it’s just attached to her afterwards. I wiped it off, the first bit was...

    Blood stains or not?

    Tommy had a bladder stone removed 6 weeks ago and was on antibiotics afterwards for possible infection, along with painkillers and supplements for cystitis. His pee looks like it had blood in it - at one point it definitely did since I saw him do a pee and it was red straight away as he was...

    Incontinent Guinea Pig?

    Hello :) I have two 5 yo unspayed sows. Bella has had query UTIs in the past and it has cleared up with antibiotics. Recently I have noticed she is wet with urine under her stomach, no strong smell and no squeaking when passing urine. I took her to the vets last week, he was able to get some...

    Blood in pee

    My 1 and a half year old Seymour has been crying while peeing for a few weeks now, and now I noticed today that he is also peeing blood, he doesn’t wee very much or drink very much lately but he is still his usual self. I hope no one thinks it’s cruel that I haven’t yet taken him to the vets but...

    Blood in urine?!

    Taking measurements for new fleece just now and I have noticed that my girls' urine is a different colour to usual. It is way darker with a reddish tinge that I am concerned is blood. I have included pics from 3 places today, and also still had some of the puppy pads that I cleaned up last...

    Strange Reddish Sticky P

    I've just gone to say goodnight to my piggies and noticed a couple of tiny blobs of reddish sticky goo stuck to the fleece. It seems to have become harder/stickier as it dries. It *could* have come from the pieces of bell pepper, but there's no food (or evidence that they've bern eating it)...

    Blood In Urine

    Hello everyone, I have read the forums here a lot but never made an account, until today. I have two pairs of boars, both very lovely, and today was bath day, much to their demise. Anyway, when I was bathing the second pair, Bumble was waiting in the empty bath patiently while I was cleaning...

    Blood In Guinea Pigs Urine

    Last week I noticed that my 2 year old boar has a red tint to his urine which I can only assume was blood. I've booked him a vet appointment this evening however last night I was checking him and noticed his urine was clear again. Should I still take him to the vets? I don't want to have to put...

    Post Neutering Op

    Hi, my guinea pig was neutered yesterday and his behaviour is what I expect to be typical for a recovering guinea. For example, being less active etc. I have laid towels out in his cage to make sure nothing sticks to his wounds. However, I have discovered that his urine has become extremely...

    Boy Bits?

    Sorry if this is a silly question! So quite often when I pick Iggy up he leaks a drop of white liquid or from his willy. Especially when being examined. With his many problems I just figured it was due to swelling or something initially. Is it a boy thing? I'm quite new to boy bits so I'm...
