Default HELP!!! Blood in Urine!!!

OMG!!! I had Jade out for playtime a bit earlier today, and then see pee'd on the carpet.(like she does every few days to my disliking). This time, there was a difference. There was blood in it! Not that much, but not just a faint trace either. Also, her poop seemed a bit mucousy(she pooped after that), but not much, and i don't think that is a problem. BUT BLOOD IN PEE!!! I will take her to the vet tomorrow, but can anyone tell me why she may have it, what other symptoms there may be, and anything i should do for her right now? I assume that i should take her to the vet, but if not, tell me. Also, maybe inform me if the mucousy poop is a problem.(it seemed mucousy cuz i saw some residue connecting a couple pieces that had a strand for a second). Come to think of it, she may have has a tiny bit of blood before. a month and a half ago, there was some white stuff in her pee. I learned from these forums that it was vaginal discharge. One time, it was slighty pink, though mostly white. it was a faint colour change, so i though nothing of it, but the discharge may have had a bit of blood.

Plz reply if you can help.

Oh, btw, i have noticed not much behaviour differences. she's still as cute and outgoing as ever. She was being more of a cuddler then usual the past few weeks, and sleeps against me a bit easier, but i think thats just cuz now that she knows her surroundings (i havent had her for all THAT long) she wants to explore a bit less. She still likes to bolt to some places, mostly next to her cage... but yeah.

one more thing, she is just a few months old.

Definitely needs to see the vet ASAP. It could be a UTI or uterine infection.

urinary tract infection. Could also be bladder infection, kidney stones, etc. Uterine tumors are also a possibility, but at her age, I'd lean towards a UTI.

As part of keeping u updated, she just peed, and no blood! i got a pee smaple and poop sample tho, top give to the vet. The poop worries me now. It is very mucousy. i put it in a cup, and it is sticking to the edge By some clearish fluid (ew) also, there is some blackish strand connecting two pieces. Should i take a pic. so u guys can see if it looks like certain conditions???

Btw, still no new behavior changes, except she seems to not know when she's pooping. Twice when she pooped, she kept on moving around during it. she usually stops till its done.

One more thing, her vagina seemed a bit red this morning.(not around it, but in the opining), but that might just be a bit of left over blood.

Black, tarry poop is likely a sign of internal bleeding. Get her to a vet ASAP!
