    Question orange gunk found in cage! Vomit or diahrea?

    Hey guys I need some advice, I came into the room my one year old female cavy was to give her dinner and noticed a lump of orange stuff by her food bowl. I'm not sure whether it came from her mouth or her butt. I am very worried. She's eating and pooping though. Should I take her to the vet?

    Guinea pigs can't vomit, and it doesn't look like any poop I've ever seen. It almost looks like she chewed up something orange and dropped it out of her mouth.

    Did she have anything orange to eat? Or did anything orange fall in her cage?

    It's definitely not vomit, and it's not poop, either.
