    Pet carrier for travel

    I’m moving house! My pigs will have around two hours travelling to their new home in the car with us. They have a small pet carrier but I’m wondering if I should get a bigger one since they’ll be in it for a little while especially as I get their cage set back up!

    Piggy Travel Anxiety

    Last week I made a post about how my family and I will be taking my two guinea pigs, Moira and Rose, along with us from Virginia to Illinois for the holidays, as there are no boarding facilities nearby and the people I would trust to watch them also go on vacation.

    Runy Nose After Hectic Car Trip

    I took my two guinea pigs to the vet a couple days ago because of a slight crackling noise coming from the nose. The vet said everything was fine with their lungs and it was probably a slight irritation on the nose because of the change of bedding to fleece that could cause a build up of pee...

    Today my guinea pig was in a car for between an hour and a half to two hours. He was extremely restless the entire time, trying to find positions to sleep in and then instantly changing his mind. I thought perhaps heat was causing it and that once he got home he'd be calmer. However when he got...
