Hi I have come down stairs this morning and found blood in my guinea pigs cage, and a red thing in the cage I'm not sure what it is, I have checked my guinea pig over and it seems to have coming from her bits, I have pulled her out of the cage and she is sitting on the sofa next to me in a blanket eating leaves, she maybe be acting a little bit funny but not much, she doesnt seem in pain or anything. Can someone give me some advice? P.s sorry about the picture but wanted a bit of advice.

:agr: Please get your girl booked in to see the vet. I’d also send them a picture by email.

All the best for tomorrow and hopefully it’s nothing major.

Please can you add your location to your profile so info can be better tailored to you.

Thank you so much and will do. Sorry
Hi!

I am very sorry. have you had a look at the red coated object to see what it is made of? It is a very unusual form for a bladder stone, which are usually rounded or oblong. Is your piggy a boy or a sow?

Hi it is a sow from the look of her after I cleaned her up it seems to have come from the bum 😕 I'm really worried about her. When I'm reading on the internet the first thing that I see is cancer 😕

All the best!

If it is soft, it is most likely coming from the reproductive tract. Good that you have booked her in promptly. You can email or message the picture for the vet to see and help with their diagnosis if necessary.

Update - the vets have given me some antibiotics for now for her and they have sent the red thing off to be tested. She seems so healthy in her self, even the vet said that today. She acting like she normally would shes eating and drinking. There hasnt been any more blood since yesterday either. We will just to wait and see what it said when the tests come back now.
