Abstract

Urinary diseases are commonly found in guinea pigs. Diagnostic workup includes clinical examination, blood testing, imaging studies, urine culture, and urinalysis. This article describes the use of transurethral cystoscopy in female guinea pigs as an ancillary tool to diagnose abnormalities within the bladder and urethra. In addition, the transurethral cystoscopic removal of uroliths measuring up to 5 mm and situated within the urinary bladder is described.
