    Bald dry spot below ear

    This is Mabel, she is 4 months old and lives with her sister, Hoggy. Today I noticed this bald spot below her ear with a spot of dried blood. It's a very rough texture and has a silvery sheen as opposed to the rest of her pinkish skin. I haven't seen her itching, and when I press and touch...

    Bleeding bottom

    Hi, I am a bit of a loss. My guinea pig has been passing blood on and off for roughly a month now. I have been to the vets a couple of times and now they are at a loss of what to suggest. She was treated with antibiotics for 10 days for a UTI, then when this didn't work they gave her another 2...

    Specialist Colitis and kidney failure after fly strike

    Hi, I posted before about needing a new friend for our younger boar, Buzz, and that George had rejected Buzz after an operation for flystrike. So, almost as soon as George finished his baytril he started to eat less and then got very watery diarrhoea. We booked him in for an emergency...

    Adopted a guinea pig yesterday with gnarly nails! Help please

    Hi everyone, so I adopted this boy yesterday and noticed his nails were really long. Today he was comfortable enough for me to actually exam them... I'm beyond shocked. Not only are they long with quicks the length their nails should be but one on the front seems to be blown up, the two next to...

    Emergency Blood in poop, help needed

    Hi there, I just joined this forum to see if I could get any opinions on what is wrong with Meatloaf. She's about 5 1/2 years old and last week we noticed blood in her cage. Originally we thought it was a UTI because it seemed like it was in her pee, but the next day it looked like it was coming...

    Urinary track infection? Ovarian cyst?

    Hello everyone, My guinea pig Nymeria is peeing blood. I only found out today, to my knowledge yesterday this wasn't happening. I immediately took her to an exotics vet and they took an x-ray and a pee sample. There were no bladder stones so the vet said it's possible it's either a urinary...

    Guinea pig suddenly attacking the other.

    We bought two male 8 month old pigs around two months ago as they were adoption ones in Pets At Home. Up until now they’ve been fine; cuddling and playing. Yesterday morning we woke up to find one (Blueberry) hiding in the hay rack away from the other (Mr Muffin). I took him out to find out his...

    Bleeding Feet Pads

    I saw streaks of blood in the cage (c&c with fleece) and noticed that Layla’s heels seem to have been chafing against the fleece possibly? Her foot itself looks like it had been bleeding a bit but not much at all. What can I do to help disinfect and heal the skin on her feet?

    I saw two drops of blood under my guinea pigs' cave, then I saw a small spatter of blood on the side of Neville's face, near his eye. I checked all of their eyes, tummies, feet and teeth, but all was well. What do I do? It'll cost £75 to take them all to the vet to get checked out. Help?!

    Red stuff around eye

    Does anyone know what this could be? It only appears on Jasmine's right eye. I took her and Pickle to the vet yesterday about excessive scratching caused by mites (which are now gone, thankfully) and now this has appeared out of nowhere. Her eye is otherwise normal (if a little bit red in the...

    Blood in pee

    My 1 and a half year old Seymour has been crying while peeing for a few weeks now, and now I noticed today that he is also peeing blood, he doesn’t wee very much or drink very much lately but he is still his usual self.

    Persistent blood in urine, no stones and no pain

    Hi, We’ve got two girls 3 and 4 year old - the 4 year old has been diagnosed with interstitial cystitis almost a year ago. She is on continuous pain/inflammatory meds (metacam and tramadol) alongside nutracyst. This seemed to do the trick as her weight is consistent and she’s just a bubbly and...

She’s been eating, drinking, and acting normally and doesn’t appear to be in pain, even when I moved her fur to take the pictures. Does anyone know what this could be from or how...

    I noticed that there was a pink patch on my piggies fleece and assumed it was my 4/5 year old boar as it was in his spot where he sleeps all the time. I googled and found that it could be blood in his urine or that his urine had just oxidated, I saw post saying I should put him on a white towel...
