Exclamation Thick Urine?

Hello all,

So I was watching Nutmeg the other day and found some urine in her wheel ,she often uses it as a toilet! XD I looked at it and it was rather thick, she does bring sand into her wheel so that may have made it thick, is she dehydrated? She has been drinking enough Is it too dark or light? Is there anything to worry about?

Here is a pic:

Thanks

If it is thick, sticky and stinks a lot then she is in heat. The smell will attract male hamster.

Oh ok then There was a strong smell but I thought that was just old substrate, luckily I have no male hamsters. (Will it attract mice, I don't have any but just curious)

Probably won't attract mice as they wouldn't mate naturally

If there is a strong odour and it seems like a thick yellow substance then it most likely is the liquid she produces when in heat. If this carries on for a while though I'd get it checked out

Hamsters normally come into heat every 3 or 4 days, it normally last's for 1 day.
