 Hissing occasionally while peeing

Hi guys!,

So I just wanted to get your advice on something as I'm still pretty new to having a sugar glider so want to be 100% sure :). First off if there is anyone from south Africa on this site that knows of any vets that treat sugar gliders in KZN would be great to know! Basically every once in a while Axl will make like a quiet hissing sound when he pees and I read up that it could be a urinary infection. Does anyone know of any ways to help cure that as i looked online and it said cranberry juice, I'm currently trying to find a vet in the area to take him to just in case but if anyone has any thoughts or experiences with this please let me know :)

Thanks
Guys

The thing that confuses me is that he only does it sometimes so I'm not sure if I should be worried or not. I have been monitoring his behaviour and nothing has changed like he's still very active at night and eating fine so hoping everything is fine

I have heard it can be a UTI (Urinary infection) also. But I have a male glider that hisses loud while peeing. but the vet inspected him and found nothing unusual, redness or swelling or anything else. so he said it was not worth giving a whole round of antibiotics without more evidence of an infection. Connor is still healthy and active many months later.
