I noticed today Riffy has what seems to be a vaginal discharge (yes, Riff is a girl although I refer to them as my "boys". ) It was very small and whitish. I wiped it up and Riff seemed fine. I have noticed it about once before on one of the others. Anything to worry about?

I think this is normal for girl piggies to experience. I could be wrong but it may have something to do when they come into "heat". As long as she is in no discomfort from it and it clears up in a couple of days she should be fine. :)

I thought it might be hormonal too! And Riffy was certainly bad-tempered yesterday!

Sometimes girls get a little discharge like Ellie said. Nothing to worry about. You just have to make sure it's only a little now and again and not a lot everyday as sometimes it can be the start of cystitis.
