Is the Guinea pig straining to urinate?
What type of diet is she eating?
Does she make painful noises when urinating?
What type of bedding is she on?
Is there any discharge from the vulva?
I know you want an easy fix for the guinea pig, but there quite a few things that can be causing the blood. A Uti would be the easiest to treat. Other issues include a Pyometra which is a uterine infection, bladder stones, Interstital Cystitis, and Cancer.
I know this does not sound good. We can try giving some Pure Cranberry juice diluted with water. This will help if this is a bacterial UTI. Bacterial does not thrive in an acidic environment. I do suggest she be seen at an Exotic Vet that is familiar with Guinea pigs. All these issue are hard on an older piggie.
Please let me know if you need clarification on this information.
If you need an ER Vet I can find one for you with a State and zip code. Unfortunately, it sound worse than a UTI and I suspect a Pyometra to go down so fast, as it can cause sepsis.
I am so sorry, I wish there was an easy answer. I know Walmart is open all night for the Juice. I hope she makes it.
