    Clumped Crumbly Brown Mass?

    I see these things around the cage occasionally, usually around her poop piles. What are they?

    They look like watery poop to me.

    How often does that happen? And is the rest of her poop shaped like the normal beans?

    I only see it maybe two or three times a month, and all her poop is normal. That's what watery poop looks like? In real life, it looks more dry than wet.

    Well, guinea pigs can't vomit, so it's definitely not that.

    Could it be food?

    The only food I feed her that remotely looks like that is pellets, but why would the pellets be crushed and moist like that? The thing is too wet to be a pellet. I'm scheduling an appointment for nail trimming and a check up later this week, so maybe I'll check with the vet.

    Take the picture in, or better yet, a sample of the stuff.
