I just started to change the bedding in my cages and one cage has bright yellow spots in the bedding. I've never seen this before - Is it a UTI? or is this normal? HELP

I would take your glider to the vet to have a test done. You may never know but let the professionals give you the best advice. If he does have UTI the vet will give him some meds to clear it up. Dont ignore thinking this will go away. Please keep us updated <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

Just a word of advice here, have the vet do a Culture and Sensitivity, I had a glider with a UTI, and he ended up throwing up the medicine, the UTI is gone now, and the vet felt we would wait and see if it reoccurred and then do a c&s since it wasn't there anymore. So far he is ok, but do the c&s and get on the right meds, it's pretty scary to see them throwing up from something you did!

Bright urine is also a sign of dehydration. Any updates on your little one?

We visited the vet today, I'm not real confident in him, but he's the only one available to me right now. So far, stools are good, no dehydration, he didn't test the urine ( I think he's either afraid of them or afraid to hurt them). Doc suggested that since we don't have any other symptoms, he thinks it might be from the change in their diet. (I switched them to BML last month), but why would it just show up now? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" />
Anyway, as of this evening everyone is happy, alert and seems to be fine. I haven't seen anymore bright spots in the bedding yet <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/dance.gif" alt="" />
I was instructed to come back in if I see it again, but I have to bring the soiled bedding. I didn't know they could test the bedding!
I'll keep you guys posted with any changes. Thanks for your help and support, you guys are the best!!! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />
