How old is Spot?

The yellow-brown color is normal for dried guinea pig urine. Whether or not to worry about the milkiness depends on the age of the pig and whether or not the dried urine is powdery or gritty.

It is normal for them to have milky white pee, I don't know about the yellow brown color. I would say just keep an eye on him/her. If you are worried, take your gp to the vet.

Spot is 1.5 years old, he will be 2 this week. The fresh (!) urine has the brown coloration, not the dried. I felt the dried pee and it isn't gritty at all.

I dunno. The yellow-brown is not normal for fresh urine. I'd keep a close eye on him, looking for any signs of a stone or urinary tract infection. Does the urine have any unusual odor?

Well, the pee smells like normal pee. what does normal pee smell like? He doesn't squeak when peeing either.

Earlier, I said:

That's still what I think.

Blood in urine
Squeaking while urinating or defecating
Hunching and straining while urinating or defecating

Spot shows none of those symptoms. Is there a chance that its just his normal urine coloration?

Do you put any additives in the water (i.e. vit c drops)?

No, i put nothing in his water. i give him 1 cup of veggies and 1/4 cup of pellets a day along with unlimited hay and fresh clean water.

What brand of pellets? What types of veggies? You may want to cut him down to 1/8 since he's 2.

The color is actually lighter than that picture i posted, but it was all i could fine the very second. I'll post the color once i find the correct shade.
