Hey guys just a few things I nearly freaked out about yesterday and this morning .. so yesterday was sweeping up the carpet and thought I saw drops of blood . Majorly started to freak ought thinking OH MY GOD UTI has he cut himself have they been fighting etc so after scooping them both out ( much to their disgust) it was feeding time don't you know ?! Checking them both over and finding nothing .. go back to the spot on the carpet and closely examine it .. turns out it was tomato juice from he day before ..

Also this morning I noticed on my Peruvian. That his chin is wet ? Checked his mouth his teeth were normal length , does anyone have any ideas what this could be ? I've seen him brush against the DRIPPY water bottle and just wondered do you guys think he's been doing this or a more sinister teeth problem is coming in?

Just keep an eye on the chin and have a quick check at regular intervals.
If he is eating (watch closely to make sure he is eating and not dropping his food) then is is probably just from drinking in a weird way.
We have one who often has a wet chin after drinking, and we also have water bottles.
