My 6 year old female guinea pig recently passed what I think was potentially a series of cysts but I have no idea what it is or where it might have come from so any advice /suggestions would be great!

The entire thing she passed was about 5cm long, and the little ‘balls’ were of a rubbery texture.

Previous to the passing of this, she cried when she peed and a lot of sludge came out which has now stopped, but the balls / stones were not hard which makes me think it’s not kidney stones?


The above is a link to the pictures I took of it (you might have to copy-paste the link.

Thanks in advance for any help!

And got the T-shirt

Sorry, that link doesn't work even if the HTML code is taken off. Can you post just a working link?

Are you positive she's a female?

Link to the photos on a different platform.

Yes positive she’s a female!

I'm going to guess that those are uterine fibroids, also called leiomyomas. I'd get her to a good exotic vet pretty quickly. I'm guessing she will need to be spayed.

I took the liberty of cropping them so they could be displayed here. Let me know if that is okay:

I don't know what uterine fibroids might look like but bpatters suggestion sounds reasonable. Tell us what the vet thinks.
