My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech tech for 30+ years. I would love to assist you.

The color of the foods Guinea Pigs eat can influence the urine color and if she had Red peppers, last night I am sure that is where the color came from. As a Suggestion try orange or yellow peppers. Also make sure she gets a vitamin C supplement since they cannot manufacture the Vitamin C in the body. The normal urine color should be clear to a cloudy color. The Vitamin C also hes keep bacteria down in the Urinary tract.
