If you notice the blood in your guinea pig's urine, first of all you should be sure it is blood. In some cases, depending on the age of the guinea pig (especially in young ones) and their diet, the urine may have dark, even brownish color.

If it is blood, it is very important to take him to a veterinarian, as it could be a urinary infection or presence of one in his urinary tract.

In case of blood in the feces, it is very probable that your guinea pig has parasites or intestinal pathology.

In both cases, if there is blood in the urine or feces of your guinea pig, visit a veterinarian - specialist in exotic animals, who will perform a general checkup of your pet and, if necessary, prescribe an appropriate treatment.

All the best for you and Cobaya.
