Red urine / haematuria

Bloody urine (haematuria) can be seen in guinea pigs. Cases of bloody urine in guinea pigs often turn out to be normal guinea pig urine which is simply a deep red colour due to the excretion of plant pigments within the diet. True cases of blood in the urine are often due to stones/sludge within the urinary tract, cystitis, uterine adenocarcinoma (tumours), polyps or abortion.
