Guinea Pig Estrus

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that a guinea pig does not bleed in heat?

I found this info......"bleeding is not normal for guinea pigs, except for a little during birth.Bleeding could most likely be a reproductive system problem or a urinary tract problem."

I havent had piggies that long so i am not sure. I have 2 girls and i never notice any bleeding. Hopefully Amber will be around soon and be more helpful

NO. They do not. If they are and are not giving birth , you need to get with a vet.

Yeah, it's not normal... I may be wrong, but I think that bleeding from the perineal are is also a symptom of scurvy. I think a vet visit is in order, as soon as possible.

Yes, what everyone else said is correct. Guinea pigs do not bleed during their heat cycles, which happen approximately every 2 weeks. If your guinea pig is bleeding, you need to get her to the vet. Bleeding from that area generally denotes a urinary tract infection (treated with antibiotics), a bladder stone (removable by surgery), or a burst ovarian cyst (treated by spaying the pig).

Jade - how is your pig doing this morning?

I agree with everyone. Definitely need to goto the vet. Let us know how it goes.

Sorry to confuse ... I don't have a guinea pig, I was asking only for informational purposes.

Thank you for the info though! I thought they were like chins and just lost the mucous plug.

Glad you don't have a sick pig on your hands! When guinea pig females go into heat, the only visible sign (to my knowledge) are their changes in behavior. For 1-2 days they become extremely irritable and touchy, and may start mounting cagemates (male or female) if they do not normally do so.
