    Blood in urine that you can’t see?

    Recently penelope went to the vet to have her teeth checked and nails trimmed. I’ve noticed she’s had quite smelly pee lately and have been giving her the Sherwood urinary support tablets that are supposed to be fantastic. She ever so kindly peed on the table for the vet 🤣 and they tested it. He...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
