    I Got A New Cage! Christmas Present

    My 3 month old girl Pepper is loving her new cage (the one above). However, since she's settling in she hides a little more which means less playtime. Hoping she'll get used to it soon so I can hold her more.

    Keeping A Mom And Baby Together?

    I adopted a mom and a baby from the Animal Humane Society. The mum is 1 year old, and the baby is around 4 weeks. The mother has been rumble strutting, which is normal... but today, she has been seemingly ATTACKING her baby! The baby gives out these horrible shrills, so I usually take her out to...

    Please Help! - Weak Baby

    On 5/7/16 one of my sows had 5 babies. One of them has always been smaller but Today I've found it very weak. It won't suckle from mum and won't eat solid food. Not sure if I should hand feed nor what to feed it?

    Rustic/blood Wee Stains?

    So recently I have noticed some rustic looking stains on the lighter coloured areas of my fleece, i know blood in urine is never a good thing so really need some advice. I never had these stains before adopting Milo from a reputable piggy rescue so my best bet is that they're from him, he's just...

    I've had Monty a few weeks now, him and Alan seem to have bonded (finger's crossed) they were introduced over two weeks ago now.

    Popcorn Free Baby Helford

    Helford was born already sleeping this morning at 11 o clock. He is remembered by both his human family and of course his mummy Miley, sister Zelah & Aunty Morag. You were big and strong like your aunty Morag and had gorgeous sleak, shiny cream agouti fur. I think you would have enjoyed cuddles...

I've been hand feeding him the...

    Blind Baby?

    We will get this confirmed at the vets but I suspect that one of Blondie's recent babies could be blind, possibly even deaf. She was the last to be born and is considerably smaller than her brother and sister, however is gaining weight steadily. There is nothing physically suspicious of...
