    My guinea pig may not make it

    Hello! I’m here to talk about my guinea pig. There’s nobody to ask about how to know what is going on with her and I just want to find clarity. My guinea pig, well where do I start? I have a guinea pig named Nickel and I got her and her play mate from a woman. That one died somehow and I woke...

    Eye ulcer?

    Hi sorry if this is long but I’m concerned about Scooby’s eye. It started September/October time last year. It started out with just a tiny lump that you could only notice if you pulled his eye back so I took him to the vets and got given some eye drops (sorry I can’t remember the name). They...

    GUINEA PIG HANDLING

    Hello everyone, I’m just wondering how much should you take your piggies out of their cage or give them lap time? How important is this and how much do you let your piggies have floor and lap time? Is once a week enough or should it be more? Thanks x

    Low calcium diet

    Hello everyone! Newbie here who could really do with some advice. 4 days ago I rescued two female guinea pigs (sisters approx 4 years old) and noticed their urine has a strong white colour, which has stained our patio, and a couple of their poos have white elements. Research says excess calcium...

    Suddenly biting us!

    Hi everyone, I’m at a bit of a loss about what to do! Our lovely guinea pig boy is around 2.5 years old, he has such a funny personality and is so special to us, he loves cuddle times and is usually very affectionate, he gives us lots of kisses, and cuddles with us for ages. The last week...

    Waterproofing wooden guinea pig hidey

    I’ve just bought some wooden hideys for my guinea pigs and was wondering if anyone knows of a guinea pig safe coating that I could use to waterproof them from urine and prevent mould growing. My guinea pigs will probably chew round the edges so I want to be sure that it is 100% non-toxic...

    BOAR GLUE?

    Hi I’ve noticed this white thing on Scrappys penis, I’m really worried as I don’t know what it is and I really don’t want everyone to say take him to a vet! How can I get it off? The 2 bits at the bottom of him are woodshavings it’s the penis part I’m worried about.

    So long, Comet.

    My beloved Comet has unfortunately passed away today, and I can remember when I first came across this website. I was not a registered member, and we had all come here to look for advice on what to do for them. She died so unexpectedly that none of us could have seen it coming. She was in...

    Crazy Piggy

    I just got a male guinea pig 5 days ago from a animal shelter. They didn't have his age, it was unknown. For the first 2 days he was perfectly fine. Of course he ran away from me when I tried to pick him up. But thats what all piggies do as what ive seen/read. After those 3 days we started...

    My Guinea Pig Won't Keep Down Food.

    Hai, I have a guinea pig named Storm, and I guess she's always been a picky eater. I remember when I first got her (Will be a year on Dec. 10th) and I wasn't educated enough. We bought her the food with the colored shapes, and she'd only eat those, not the brown pellets. So, I changed up her...
