    Content or bored?

    Hi hi, Loi here :) So, I’m always worried that I’m not doing enough to entertain my two girls, Kinoya (Kino for short) and Fen. They’re about 7 months old now, and throughout the day, they mostly just lay around in their hideys. I worry that they’re bored. I do my best to provide enrichment...

    Guinea pig dental

    My boy Steve is suffering with his molars at the moment (at least we believe as current vets are unable to examine back teeth conscious without proper equipment). He is 7 and still bright, in good body condition for his age and seems to be comfortable otherwise. Since Sunday I’ve had to...

    Hi. So I have two pigs that I bought from a pet shop at 8 weeks old in June 2023. So I think they’re just coming up to about a year old. 2 days ago they had a BIG squabble which resulted in the quieter piggy being badly injured with a cut lip, and the other more confident piggy came out fine. I...

    UTI in question?

    We took our guinea pig to the ER vet last night due to some very small drops of blood in her urine. There are a few concerns of mine that weren't in my head at the time of the vet visit (it was 2AM). With some of these bloody pees, there were hardened calcium deposits -- they usually dry up and...

    Milk thistle

    Hi. I’ve been having a rough time with my remaining girl. She currently has quite a bit of fluid in her abdomen and is on furosemide to try to help expel the fluid. It’s basically to help make her comfortable. It will not fix anything but I hope to have some more time with her. I am already...
