However about 5-10 minutes later I got another call telling me teh blood had gone and she seemed to running around and eating as normal.
Does this look like a possible hay poke or could it be a sign of some other condition? Does it need a vet visit and if so how urgently?
I checked the medical info but couldnt see anything that looked like this. Her eye seems to be fine and undamaged. I will give her a more thorough check when I get home.
Thanks for your help
After the $115 bill I could use some pain killers though.
I guess the high bills are part of the joys of living in the Bay Area with the stupidly high rents landlords seem to want. The vet has to be able to pay their bills like the rest of us.

A quick question though the vet asked if we had their hay in a feeder or just a loose pile. We have both, they seem to prefer the pile however the vet said that was more likely to cause hay pokes. I would have thought the opposite as the hay is free to move if they brush in to it whereas in a feeder if it is fixed it will have more resistance. Unless the issue is that they or another piggy might move hay that then pokes them.
Has anyone found hay piles to cause more or less hay pokes?
