    Advice for further course of action (Reproductive tract bleeding)?

    So, the post is about my 4.5 year old guinea pig Bean. About 4-5 months ago we noticed spots of blood and some solids (clot?) coming out of her reproductive tract, when we visited the vet he did an x ray and basically said that there were some growths in her uterus but he couldn't see them very...

    Struggling to help my guinea with her breathing issues

    My guinea pig Muschi has had always periods of noisy breathing but until now we have always managed to get it under control. In March she got x-ray and CT scan because I was so sure that it is caused by a heart disease. Her sister died last year of an enlarged heart. But the vet said everything...

    Guinea pig eating normally, drinking a bit more, but losing steadily?

    Hi guys! So I recently lost two piggies, my Judo and Guts. It's been hard going, but of course, Bert had a check up. I noticed he was drinking more water than normal. His poos are very dark, regular shaped, sometimes pinched off, and shiny. So overall, healthy, as far as I know. He was treated...

    Hello! My 2 boars are (finally, it has been a bumpy ride) nearing the end of their antibiotic treatment - for how long after my piggies’ last antibiotics dose should I continue giving them probiotics? And how long after they stop taking antibiotics are they more susceptible to illness? They have...

    antibiotic advice

    Hello, my guinea pig (about 4 years or so) has windpipe thickening, possibly inflammation (that's what the X-ray suggests to the vet). Originally, they said it could be bronchitis, although today they said she probably also has some extent of nasal congestion that's not super obvious externally...

    Respiratory Infection not improving

    Hi all, I need advice. Monday i took my guinea pig to the vets as he had a little wheeze. By the time we got there the wheeze was gone and they listened to his lungs, heart, weighed him etc and he was in perfect health from what they could tell. Tuesday morning I went to check on him and he...

    Azithromycin dose

    I have found posts stating Simon and others prescribe azithromycin 200mg/5ml at 1ml per kg once daily. My vet has prescribed 0.6ml once daily for my 1.16kg piggy Tiny Tiger for a respiratory infection. This is half the dosing above. I'm wondering, though, if this is acceptable and that this...

    Guinea pig doesn’t like bene-bac :(

    So currently, my mocha is on an antibiotic for her uri. I’ve been trying to give her bene-bac in the powder form. I can’t find the gel anywhere. She HATES IT. I’ve mixed it with crushed up pellets and water and she’ll eat it for two minutes and then she’s done. I’ve tried spreading on a pepper...
