    Crusty bit of fur on Guinea pig back?

    My Guinea pig has developed a crusty bit of fur on his back ... I'm not sure if it's fungal or just from the heat (currently we've got a heat wave in the UK). Never happened before and his behaviour is unchanged. Perhaps he's a bit grumpier than usual snapping at the other pigs but that could...

    Dry patch behind guinea pig’s ears?

    I'm not sure if it’s a fungal infection or not but my 1 year old female guinea pig has a small patch of dry scaly skin behind each ear. She has had it for a long time but I always thought it was normal. She also gets flaky ears sometimes and often has a small (but not abnormal) amount of crust...

    Little dry patch

    Hello! I posted on here the other day about my guinea boy who had a crusty ear. This is now clearing up well with daily sea salt cleaning. however I’ve just found this patch. Is it anything to be worried about. They’ve been treated for mites.

    Crust around the nose

    Hello! I’ve noticed that piggy Akira has some kind of crust below her nose. She usually sneezes maybe once every few days. I took pictures with flash because that’s the only way I can show the crust. Don’t worry, I wasn’t grabbing her head - it kind of looks that way. I have visited the vet once...

    Mo's Bits And Bobs

    Hi guys it's me again with another question that if it wasn't piggy related I'd probably be locked up for asking haha. Basically I just cleaned my piggy out like usual- shook his fleece and removed hay and poos. I proceeded to give him his little stroke where he rolls over and reveals his belly...

    Crusty Eyes

    Hi everyone, I am posting to see if anybody has had a similar situation or have any idea what this could be. My guinea Benny has been dealing with some crusty eye issues. We brought him to the vet a few weeks ago for it and after examination and a dye drop test he was diagnosed with...

    Crusty/scabby Nose

    Hi, my male guinea pig has this on his nose it looks like a big scab but it's solid and seems to be quite deep in him. I thought he had had a fight with another one of our guinea pigs and had gotten it from that but I don't think it's the case anymore. Is this something we should be worried...
