    After Surgery, being told that stone is embeded in the bladder wall. Doc warned huge risk! Please help!

    My pig is called Meng (boar). He had his first surgery today on May 18th in the afternoon. The stone is around 5.5mm on diameter and was discovered during the surgery that it is embeded inside the bladder wall. The bladder is filled with blood which indicates how severe the condition has already...

    Should I split my piggie’s Metacam?

    Hello! On Friday afternoon I noticed one of our boars (Mr Pig) was hunching over and being quite vocal, so naturally I sprung to action and went over to investigate and found little pink spots on the fleece. A quick bit of research seemed to indicate bladder issues such as an infection or...

    UTI/bladder stones?

    My piggy has been slowly but steadily losing weight; over the last 10 days he's lost 100g. He's a recently diagnosed dental piggy (January this year) so doesn't have much weight on him due to that, so he is now getting dangerously underweight (800g this morning). For reference he's 3.5 years old...

    Sperm rod

    I took my 5 month old boar to the vet on Tuesday as he was squealing and straining to pee. They felt around to see if they could feel a stone. Nothing, so we were sent home with painkillers and antibiotics. He seemed to be alright on Wednesday, not 100% but better than he was. Come Thursday...

    Blood stains or not?

    Tommy had a bladder stone removed 6 weeks ago and was on antibiotics afterwards for possible infection, along with painkillers and supplements for cystitis. His pee looks like it had blood in it - at one point it definitely did since I saw him do a pee and it was red straight away as he was...

    Hello - first time posting here (although I've been an avid reader!) Last week, 1.5 year old boar Mose was peeing some blood (although no signs of pain) and was diagnosed with a bladder stone. I was quite surprised, since we feed them red leaf, green leaf lettuce, with the occasional red...

    peeing blood?

    I took my two piggies, Bruno and Ace, out for floor time and they were absolutely mad wheeking and popcorning. However when I took them back to their hutch and started putting back their hidey’s I noticed in one of my fleece hidey’s there was a rust coloured pee stain on it. I’m not sure if it’s...

    Uti/possible Stones - Worried About Xray

    A few weeks ago our 5 1/2 year old guinea pig Dustin was squeaking and arching his back when he had a wee and soon after started having pinkish urine and doing more frequent smaller wees.

    My Sweet Draco Having Surgery For Stone Tomorrow

    Hi, I adopted Draco 1.5 yrs ago and think he is about 2.5- 3 yrs old. For the past year I have seen blood in his urine multiple times. I am fortunate to have a good, experienced vet and the means to pay for exams/tests (I am in US). The first x-rays showed what the vet called a deposit...
