Kinda conserned...
 
So today i noticed that luna had yellow around her mouth an on her belly (washed off ok) i am guessing that the yellow on her belly was cause when i enter the room when she is on the wheel she will crouch down (so guessing its from poop) but i was wondering if the yellow around her mouth was cause of her anointing or something else? Also she lost some grams from yesterday she was 257 now she is 237 (gonna keep monitoring that) her poop looks fine and doesn't stink and she is eating and drinking fine (might have put less food last night idk)... also i noticed that every once in a while she kinda sqeaks when she sniffs? I am hoping i am just a worried mamma...

I'm obviously not a vet but not sure if the yellow around her mouth would be from poo as there poos shouldn't be yeallow. It's good that you are weighing her and it's best to keep an eye on how much she's eating for the next few days. If she keeps losing weight you really want to have her checked by a vet. Percy sometimes squeaks lightly (more of a chirp though) when he's searching around. Check all her toes for threads, and feel around her body for lumps and bumps. I do that everytime I take Percy out. Hope it's nothing at all. let us know how she does.

I read your post, but really didn't have any meaningful advice which is why I did not reply . I really don't know what the yellowing could be. How is she today?

She went back up in weight and seems to be fine, she is quilling right now so its hard to check her but i didn't feel anything strange.
