    Pinkish Blush color in pee

    Hi fellow guinea pig owners. We were doing our routine cage clean, and before we started, we saw that one of our pigs had peed a pinkish blush color. This is completely rare, because we’ve never seen anything like this in any of her Pees. It was VERY light, but still visible. Does anybody know what this could mean? We’re already due for a vet appointment, but does anybody have any insight? Thank you.

    Was this fresh urine, or dried? Urine oxidizes as it dries, and changes color.

    Have they eaten anything different? Something with color in it?

    Have you heard any signs of squeaking while peeing or pooping?

    Hello. Thank you so much for your help. It was fresh because we saw her while she was peeing. She is being reintroduced to spinach right now and had a few bites of a blackberry. They only had about two bites and were very disinterested to say the least. Plus, this was a couple of days before this pee. Thank you.

    Then I'd watch carefully for any signs of infection or stone -- odor to the urine, continued color, blood clots, squeaking while peeing or pooping -- and get her to a vet if you see anything unusual.
