Fudge is about 18 months old, female, and lives with Snickers who is about two and a half, male (however Fudge has never been pregnant). Noticed when went to feed them this morning that Fudge has a tiny amount of blood around her bottom. There's no evidence of a wound. She's eating, drinking, pooing and weeing just as normal, her eyes are bright and her fur is fine so am not sure what's going on. I wondered if anyone had had a similar thing?
Thanks

Yeh, Hamwombat is right, it could be a bladder infection, or a bladder stone, my piggie had a bladder stone and he is fine now! xx

My Willow had a bloody bottom before and it was a digestive issue. She got some pro biotic and was fine.

You could take your piggy to the vet though to get checked out. Hope everything's ok! :)

Sometimes, it can be a one off that will leave you baffled.

If you find more, please have her seen by a vet; it can be UTI/bladder stone, from the womb or a gut problem. Keep an eye out on whether there is blood in her urine or in her poo or whether it's pure drops of blood.
