One of the boys we rescued a few months ago, Max, is poorly. I think it may be a water infection or bladder stones as he's drinking alot of water and when I swept his cage out last night noticed a couple of spots of blood on the fleece. I've got him booked in to the vets tomorrow night but I don't really know if there's anything else I can do for him until then? I don't have any metacam left or I'd have given him some.

Also got Athena booked in tomorrow night for a checkup so I'll be getting metacam for her tomorrow so might see if I can get a bigger bottle as no doubt Max will need to be on some pain relief.

Thanks all, he's such a loving little piggie as well, he loves his cuddles and likes being right up next to your face for cuddles. I tried checking his bits over to see if I could see any signs of blood but there wasn't any ( though he was a bit dirty so I gave him a bum bath ) I sat him on a towel until he had a wee and he was definitely in pain when he went as he was hunched up and squeeking so I really hope it's not bladder stones and it's just an infection
