Default Bleeding After Urinating

My hedgehog is about to turn 3 years old next month and has been generally healthy up until 4 days ago when I noticed blood in her litter tray. I took her to the vet that same and was given an antibiotic to give her twice a day in case it's an infection. It's day 4 of her 7 day course and she's still bleeding. When I took her to the vet I assumed the blood was in her urine but when I gave her a foot bath and she urinated I noticed her urine is normal but as soon as she's done urinating blood surrounded by some sort of mucous comes out, which makes me think it's an issue with her uterus. I'm unsure whether I should finish the course of antibiotics first or just take her back to the vet and would appreciate some advice. Thank you.

From your description it sounds like she will need to be spayed. If you search, you will find others have had similar discoveries and the hedgehog's uterus had a tumor and required a spay.

Contact your veterinarian and tell him what you have discovered. They may want to see her again to make a definite diagnosis, or may go ahead and recommend a spay and schedule her for surgery.
