It seems like everyday since I have had Stevie I have learned a little something about him and his care. I recently decided to change his bedding from CareFresh to fleece after giving him what I belive was probably his first deep cleaning. Even though I washed his fleece a couple of times before putting it in his cage I think that I should have done it one more time. As soon as I set him in his cage he used the bathroom (which he does everytime) and his pee did not immediately seep threw the fleece and I noticed that it looked strange (although I have no idea what it should look like), it was a milky white color. I looked at it really close and did not see any sign of blood and he does not seem to be in pain or discomfort when he goes. He eats good and has no sign of impaction or discharge coming from his genitals. He also seems to be perfectly healthy otherwise. Is this a cause for concern or is this what it should look like, I have no idea.

Milky white urine is a sign of excess calcium in the urine. It can be associated with several things, but diet is the most common. What do you feed him, and what kind of hay and pellets does he have?
