Does any one know much it costs and know of any information that may useful. Also, if anyone knows of any experienced vets in the West Midlands, particularly in or around...

    Guinea pig lost appetite after neurering - any tips of tricks greatly appreciated!

    Hi, Our piggies were neutered last Tuesday and since then one of them has been feeling poorly and lost his appetite somewhat. Last Saturday we took him to the vets where he was given some medication to get his gut going after I noticed him not eating that morning. After the vet visit he...

    Blood in Pee

    Hello all! Sunny has a mysterious illness and I thought I would put it out there to see if anyone else has encountered it. Two weeks ago I noticed some red patches in the cage when cleaning it. I took Sunny and Lola out, gave them a thorough inspection and palpitated their tummy's (like the...

    Hi, So my little brother really wants a Guinea pig. Since i was already planning to get a third guinea pig i agreed to let him own my third one. All good right? Later when we went to buy some hay from the pet shop this plan was completely ruined when he fell in love with a little black piggie in...

    Bonding Boars- Need Advice

    Hello! I adopted Charlie in February and he’s now a nearly fully grown boar. Knowing he needed a friend, about a month ago I adopted Wilber, a 3 month old boar. After a three week quarantine, they met in a huge room. I had a blanket, hay, vegetables, and all the necessary items. At this point...

    Possible Pregnancy

    just over a week ago one of my boars escaped into the enclosure with my two girls. He wasn’t in there in the morning, I went out for the day then when I went in around late evening I found him in there so I don’t know how long he was with them. The girls are both nearly 2 years old and I...

    Bonded Boars Suddenly Fighting

    Hi :D I'm new to the forum but writing in desperation in the hope someone can help us out as our past herd was a group of females and have never experienced this before! Little back story, around one year ago we adopted a pair of bonded boars Dan and Darwin (brothers), who were at the time...

    Trio Of Boars?

    I was thinking today, is a trio of boars a common thing? I know a trio of sows is a thing and they get along but would a trio of boars work out? I currently have 2 boars right now and was thinking (of course when they settle in to their C&C cage and get over their dominant stages) of getting...

    Guinea Pig Boars Fighting Over Dominance

    Hey Everyone, This is my first post on the forums and I have a problem as well as a question that I cannot find an answer to anywhere. I have four guinea pigs and they are all males. My friend (the owner of my pigs' parent pigs) assured me that they should get on fine as they are all brothers...

    Successful Bond?

    hi I am currently introducing a sow to a neutered male. My sow has been living with two other sows for 3.5 years but has been showing signs she was being bullied (become skittish/nervous/other steal her food/she is much smaller than the other two but they all happily nap and eat together)...

    Boars Acting Slightly Uneasy Towards Eachother

    Hey, everyone! I think it was around a month ago I bonded my boars. Since the last time I've posted here, I've expanded my cage a lot. Now it is 16 square feet, (or imagine a 4x2 connected to a 2x3 but more space because no closing). They've been really happy in it, they have 3 hideys, a hay...

    Carefresh? Auboise?

    Hi guys I'm looking for an alternative to fleece bedding. I do love the fleece and will keep them on it from time to time but the number of fleeces I go through in a month is high and the washing can be a painful task lol- especially when the washing machine isn't really yours and your mum...

    Trouble With Mo Again

    So before I post my ramble I should probably say that naturally around this time I get extremely anxious regarding the pigs welfare because on the 26th of Jan four days after her birthday my first piggy Vinnie had to be pts. I've posted previously about Mo sometimes squeaking when toileting...

    Guinea Pig Got The Sniffles?

    I noticed recently that my boar (Biscuit) has been a bit sniffly and sounds like he has a bit of a blocked nose. I then realised a few days later my other boar (Ollie) started sniffling as well. Biscuit has now become less interested in his nuggets but does still eat his veggies and hay. Ollie...

    What Would Be The Key Symptoms For Either A Uti Or Bladder Stones?

    Hi guys so a while ago now I posted a thread regarding my eldest boar Mo who was occasionally squeaking while toileting- he'd do it for a day then nothing for a week and then it'd happen again. You all advised keeping an eye on him and taking him to the vets if he did it constantly, I saw blood...
