It sounds like both kiddos need to go to the vet.

She probably has a localized bacterial infection if her vulva is red and inflamed. This could be due to a UTI, too. Same thing with your boy, though his symptoms are much more pressing because he can block and be unable to urinate. Boys are at a higher risk for this due to their anatomy.

What food are you feeding them specifically?
