Hi, I am a new owner of a stunning 6 month old chinchilla and today, I noticed that she urinated a lot more than usual and that her entire lower half was wet most likely due to her urine Therefore, I attempted to dry her but she kept biting/grooming her lower abdomen, and when she stood up I saw that there was white discharge coming from her vaginal area. At this time, I had to go to class as I am a student and I would occasionally check on her. During those times, I noticed that she would keep biting/ grooming the area with the white discharge and after a few hours It has dried and her fur has stuck together, So I am very worried and I don’t know what to do.... Please help me! I also researched online and I found out that she might be in heat but I am not sure, I also read about Pyometra but she seems to be eating normally as usual and does not seem to be fatigued. What should I do? Thank you! This is her a few days ago so I am not sure if she is fine or not.... Please assist me. I would really appreciate it!
