    Yeah, pee can be a lot of different colours depending what your piggies eat.

    For example, their pee will go somewhere between brown and orange if they eat a lot of carrot or dandelion or anything with that kind of pigmentation.

    The only thing to keep an eye on is if you see a really dark brown patch of dry pee and/or pink to red wet pee. If you haven't fed them anything with really red pigmentation (I can't think of anything you would) this may well be blood in the urine.

    Your piggy will also make a noise to indicate they're unformatable peeing if there's anything wrong with their waterworks.

    I really wouldn't worry about milky pee at this stage but, as ever, when in doubt, ask a cavy-savvy vet :)

    Hope that helps
