White milky urine
« on: January 09, 2018, 01:32:12 PM »

Hi I was wondering if anyone had any advice at it's too late to go to the vet tonight

My chinchilla just urinated a white milky liquid and whilst doing so was grinding her teeth loudly which I know is a sign she's in pain. I've looked online and it says that maybe she's had too much calcium

Should I take her to the vets tomorrow? Does anyone else know what could be wrong?

Thank you

Personally I think you should have an exam and check for infection as well as vaginal/uterine infection, which can be very serious so the sooner you get a diagnosis the better.

As far as too much calcium I wouldn't be concerned about that unless you are giving supplements or an improper diet.
What kind of diet are you feeding?

What kind of watering system are you using? Have you made sure it is dispensing? Inadequate water can sometimes lead to bladder/kidney infections.

Hope this helps.
