Unhappy Reddish/Brownish Substance on Wheel

Hi all! I have been getting to the point of frustration recently. I can't seem to figure out what I am seeing in Nellie's wheel in the mornings.

A little background - Nellie is a 10 month old female, I've had her for 8 months. Not too long ago I started noticing what looked like a reddish/brownish crystally looking gunk in her wheel when I would check on her in the mornings. I took her to a local vet and he did not do any tests, only looked at pictures (which is why I asked about good Kansas City vets in a separate post). He put her on Baytril for a UTI. Now I can't really say if it helped or not because I have NEVER SEEN HER PEE BLOOD or anything of the sort!! I let her go to the bathroom in the sink whenever I get her out, and each time her urine looks completely yellow. But most nights this weird gunk is somehow making its way onto her wheel. (I should also add that I haven't been able to find any cuts or injuries on her body)

Has anyone had an experience like this?? Or any ideas??? Since she is a female and after reading up on a lot of these forums I assumed it was a urinary or uterine issue and hence took her to the vet...but like I said, I have never seen red urine first hand. Her behavior hasn't changed either. I am attaching pictures of her urine in the sink as well as the gunk on her wheel.

Thanks everyone!!

I'm wondering if it's urine that got mixed enough with some poop to give it that color... But I haven't seen anything like that before to my memory, so I'm not positive.

(Also, just so you know, I deleted the other thread underneath the "Health" forum - you only need to post things once, in whichever appropriate area. )

Have you checked her feet? Perhaps the ridges on the wheel are hurting her feet when she runs? What kind of bedding or litter do you use?

ScoopzOFRolo - I have checked her feet and haven't been able to find any visible injuries. However, I recently bought and am awaiting the arrival of a Carolina Storm Wheel in case it is her feet as well as to better see the color of her *bodily fluids* since her current wheel is dark purple. I use fleece bedding, no litter just paper towels under her wheel as that is the only place she does her business.
