    Hello! I’ve had my piggies for about 1,5 month, and they have been sneezing regularly during this time. Not really excessively but in total I hear them sneeze around 10 times a day (though this is combined, not per guinea pig). When this started I called the vet and they said it was most likely...

    Hiya, Got a question to you guinea pig owners. What are some good, relatively hassle-free bedding alternatives for a piggy that's prone to respiratory infections? One of my boys was diagnosed and the vet recommended to switch back to fleece as the sawdust was too dusty. I had to switch the...

    Eating Hemp Bedding Safe?

    Hello, I was just wondering if guinea pigs eating hemp bedding can cause any harm? I've been told hemp bedding is one of the most optimal bedding brands to use and so that's what I've been using for a while. Thing is, a boar of mine has been seen snuffling about the ground, chewing and...

    How can I secure my fleece down on a regular cage to prevent burrowing?

    Hi everyone, I just got a new fleece to line my cage but one of my piggies Madison keeps burrowing underneath it! Since it’s not a C&C cage I can’t clip it to anything and it fits the cage perfectly so can’t tuck it under/over anything. I’ve tried putting her bowl in one of the corners but she...

    Aubiose or easibed

    As most of you know the piggies are now living outside (yes I still miss them!). when I put them out I used easibed and piled hay on top. But now I’ve run out I’ve got a bit of a dilemma. I REALLY LOVED aubiose but it set me off. I also like easibed but recently had a painful chest. I’m not...
