My 1 year old female guinea pig has yellow sticky discharge from her vagina. She has shown no sign of pain when urinating, she is eating and drinking normally, she only showed signs of slight discomfort when wiping the discharge away with wet tissue. Does anyone know what could be the problem? I've attached an image of the discharge.

Take your piggie to a vet. Only a hands on vet appointment will tell you exactly what the problem is. A health expert will be along shortly to help.

Please take her to see a vet as only a qualified vet will be able to give you a diagnosis and effective treatment.
What I can say from personal experience is that only 1 of my piggies has had a discharge like that and it was pyometra - a womb infection. That’s not to say your piggy has the same, but only a vet can give you the answers.
