Hi, I’m a recent guinea pig owner of two young girls, had them since January. I’ve just found this liquid in their cage while cleaning and I’m concerned about what it is? They’ve also been doing this puffing of air thing quite often, not sure if it is sneezing and if this is related. Help would be much appreciated! 😟109217

Looks like wee to me. Piggie wee is sometimes white as it's the only way that piggies can excrete excess calcium in their diet.

My vet checked my guinea pigs wee, and found the same as this, just run their veg under the tap to give them extra hydration, normaly sorts it out.

Avoid giving too much high calcium veg -

. Kale
.parsley
.spinach

And only one table spoon of pellets per pig per day👍

And if you want to, by a brita filter for their water
