    Single Guinea Bereaved Piggy?

    Hi, so recently one of my piggies passed away. It was really hard for me, and my other piggy to deal with. But, even though he was sad for the first few days and didn’t make as much noise and slept more he still ate his food (licked the bowl ahah) and drank water, ate hay, and had some pellets...

    Need friend for bereaved piggy

    Hello, my first post on here! Sadly one of my piggies passed away last week. My bereaved piggy has just started to perk up a little bit, although not eating as much as she normally does. I’m trying to find her a friend and I’ve phoned almost every rescue near me but no one has a single sow...

    Pip seeming off after bereavement

    Hi, I wasn’t sure which category to post this on as she is recently bereaved. Pip is almost 6 years old and lost her sister about 6 weeks ago, they were together since babies however never seemed super close as Pip likes her own space. When her sister (Oreo) passed I was planning on getting her...

    Should I find Moe a new friend?

    As I posted yesterday, our beloved Gus has passed away. We are taking Moe to the vet tomorrow to confirm the parasite has truly been killed off from him, because though he tested negative, something happened with Gus. They had been separated for a month prior to this happening, so we are hoping...

    Guinea pig loss

    Hi all, One of my trio (Greta) really sadly passed away last week after being hospitalised for a respiratory infection. I think one of my pigs (Agnes) is taking it a bit harder than the other - she's still eating, but just seems a bit quieter. She used to be very good friends with Greta. She...

    Companions for bereaved 6 year old pig?

    Hi, I have had my two bonded male piggies for 6 years now since they were only 8 weeks old or so. The dominant one of them has recently sadly been put down. My other pig got to see the body and seemed to show no interest in it, continuing to graze. He has been eating alright since then and was...

    Bereaved piggy

    Hi, new member here. Sadly my piggie had to be put to sleep last Tuesday and she leaves behind a solo friend. They weren’t from the same litter but had lived together for three years (2 of those with a 3rd female) Getting a new/adopted guinea pig is not an option, but I want to make sure my...

    My guinea pig is really antisocial...

    My guinea pig Honey recently died of cancer at the age of 3. I wanted to get a new sister for Jasmine (age 4) as soon as possible, but then Coronavirus struck and I couldn't. She has been alone for about 3 months now, and I don't really know what to do. Jasmine was very much the meeker guinea...

    Hi, I’m sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum firstly! However I’m looking to foster a male guinea pig due to losing one and having a single bereaving boy now, and I’m just wondering if anybody knows any sanctuaries etc that will foster to me in the Liverpool area? Surrounding is alright...

    Bereaved Guinea Pig

    Hello! Sammy (neutered two year old boar) lost his companion on Friday and I am very upset but I know I need to focus on Sammy. Sammy is quiet, lonely and not himself, more scared than usual. I need to get him a friend regardless of my feelings of grief. I have looked around rescues near me...

    Bereaved Piggy Losing Weight

    Hi, We lost one of your sows on Tuesday and the remaining one hasn't responded very well. She was already in for a scan which highlighted a thickened uterus wall the day after we lost Teri. She never saw Teris body as she was PTS at the vets. She was ok for the first couple of days and now...

    Bereaved Question

    Hello all. New here. Yes, I read the above threads, but as you all know when this happens you still have to ask. So, we lost a pig yesterday. Truffles. He died very quickly, as did his brother (actual brother, from the same litter, who passed away about 4 months ago). They were bought from a...

    New Piggie Options...

    Hi everyone :) I know that every pig is different and it's impossible to comment on different situations when you don't know the pigs in question, but any generic advice would be very gratefully received! I still have my lonely 7 month old girl, who's best friend died a couple of weeks ago. The...
