    New-ish Guinea Pigs Still Not Bonded

    Hi All, I’m a New Guinea pig owner, but I’ve wanted them for so long! I’ve had my piggies for about a month and a half and I’ve handled them once per day every day and given them food when I’ve done so. They are brothers and are about 3 months old. We got them from a friend who has a bunch...

    Bumblefoot 🙄

    So for awhile I've been noticing a red spot on my boy Manny' foot. It has been there since I got him. But just this week I realized it could be an infection. Right now I can't get veterinarian care but I've read that soaking the foot in warm water and Epsom salt and then wrap it and do that...

First of all, I’ve got two together and the third pig is by himself (right next to the other cage, they still interact!) Two of my boys have been together from the start, over a year old now. One...

    Feeling sad about guinea pig’s arthritis

    Hi everyone, I’m feeling a little down about my guinea pig today. I posted about her a little bit ago. She is 7 years old (which I’m very proud of — I adopted her in 2016 when she was about 4 months old). She has never had an issue other than the recent onset of arthritis. Before that, she’s...

    Clarice has lymphoma

    Evening all, Just thought I’d make a post here as I’m feeling really low tonight. We first had a piggie with lymphoma last year. He was almost 6 years old and we’d had him since he was 7 months. He passed around 6 weeks after diagnosis, but he was happy and eating until the very end, and...

    Nose whistle?

    Hi guys, another one of my paranoid thoughts with my piggies. My piggy Bear has had this nose whistle for a few months. (Video attached below) I can’t remember if he’s had it forever, because i just noticed it a few months ago. My hearing is bad so I’m not sure how long he really has had it...

    Hi guys! For those of you who don’t know, I have three piggies, all of which are battling and on meds for a supposed uti and I have another pig who has been fighting bloat and bladder stones for almost 5 months.

    Is something wrong?

    Hi everyone, i was watching my piggies during floortime and happened to record this. I gave him a Timothy treat that i thought he might’ve choked on, he was like rubbing his face but then seemed fine. Maybe it has something to do with that? Or maybe it was him about to sneeze. I hope it wasn’t a...

    Are finished toilet rolls safe for guinea pigs?

    I've heard and seen from popular guinea pig youtubers that finished toilet rolls (just the cardboard piece) can be good entertainment for them, my guinea pigs aren't too big on toys and prefer hideys that have have hay or carrots in/on them (they're very food motivated) so as i was mentioning i...

    Is my Guinea pig satin?

    I am concerned because I’ve always noticed his coat was shiny. I really can’t tell if it’s just a healthy coat or if he is satin because of his dark fur. I got him from petco, not sure if they sell satins there. Am i being paranoid or could he be satin? Thank you ♡

    Hi all, i am a new inexperienced Guinea pig owner, and I’ve had my 2 boys for about a month now. I got them a day apart from each other, and they both were terrified.
