    Antibiotic question

    So little Steve had X-rays done Sunday and no sludge or stones were found on the images. The vet said likely a case of cystitis so prescribed a course of baytril (0.28mls) for two weeks and loxicom (0.28mls). I was also given probiotics to stop the poos going runny. I've been giving this since...

    Lost my guinea pig to bloating overnight, now I'm worried about my other piggies..

    Last night, I fed my 4 piggies their veggies. They got carrot, celery, cucumber, and green leaf lettuce- a cup of each vegetable. Luna seemed fine last night and she was standing on her back two legs and wheeking at me like normal and I'm pretty sure she was eating. After that, I went to sleep...

    Is it ok to cut out veg?

    Ok so a while back I posted a thread when I had first had my pigs. Since then I've noticed Pamela has been showing symptoms of bloat, her pooping is normal but she will blow up like a balloon and get very agitated if I try to pick her up. She'll cry out and squint her eyes when I rub her belly...

    Bloated and scared guinea pig

    Good evening, my guinea pig had bloat (not 100 % sure, since gassy and bloat are very similar in my mother tongue) just recently and she hasn't recovered yet, but she's bloated again. I did the mistake and fed her with a syringe, quite violently, and now she doesn't want to eat at all. I've...
