Default Blood in Urine

Hi, all.

I am a hedgehog owner looking for advice. Recently, all of a sudden, I noticed blood on my hedgehog’s wheel. I did a physical exam and found blood on her crotch region. I brought her to the vet and the vet said she felt a mass in the abdomen but it could just be a bad UTI. She also explained how it could be a tumor too. She started my hedgehog on amoxicillin and a anti-inflammatory drug. It’s been 3 days and my hedgehog still has blood in her urine. The prescription for the antibiotics is 10 days, but I feel that I should have noticed a change by now. I am calling the vet tomorrow, but in the mean time, what do you all think?

An xray or sonogram could give better answers to what the mass is if they can do those. Hedgehogs can be very prone to cancers and she may need a spay to remove it.

UPDATE; The antibiotics are working well and there is significantly less blood in the urine. The vet thinks it was just a nasty uti and the mass was an inflamed bladder
