    Repeated cystitis in male guineapigs

    So I posted on here a little while ago about my two 1year old Male guniea pigs. They both had a really bad water infection and were squeaking and weeing blood. Both were treated with metacam and septrin antibiotics. One was treated for 3 weeks one for 2. The infection cleared up and they...

    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...

    Shirley has Cystitis... Advice

    Hi Everyone, I am after some advice. Shirley is 3 years old and always been healthy. About 2 months ago I noticed blood coming from her when she was on the grass in her run. I took her to the emergency vet who prescribed a 7 day course of baytril and said it was probably a UTI. It cleared up but...

    Intermittent whimpering during urination/defecation

    Dear all! I am turning to you now for advice about a ~3 year old sow with an extremely mysterious case of intermittent whimpering/crying during urination/defecation. The symptoms started last summer(ish), but they subsided within a couple of weeks, with the vet (cavy-savvy) not finding anything...

    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...

    Poorly Piggy, Been Told To Prepare For The Worst :(

    Hi everyone. I took Poppy to the vets on Monday. When I took her the time before she weighed just over 1.3. She now weighs 1.02. She has lost quite a lot of weight. The blood is apparently coming out in her urine, not in her poop so apparently this is still cystitis and they think she is just...

    Pain When Pooping :(

    Hi everyone. This is my first post so I’m hopefully doing this correct. I had two guinea babies, one sadly passed away from pneumonia/chest infection just over a month ago. Her sister, Poppy, has pretty much all her life had blood in her wee. She’s almost 4. This hasn’t been constant, but it...

    What Is The Best First Medicine To Use For My Sow With Cystitis?

    My (roughly) 5-year-old sow named Olga has been recently showing the symptoms of cystitis. She is making soft squeaking noises when she urinates, has been urinating often and is always damp on her stomach (from the result of urinating a lot). I don't want to try any full-on medicine yet, as she...

I've got him out on a towel for a cuddle and he keeps screeching, screaming,tensing up and lurching forward like he's trying to push wee out that's not there. First thought is cystitis...

    Bladder Stones On Xray, Not Found During Op

    Hi, our 23 month old boar Bramble was recently (3 weeks ago) neutered so he could have a female friend. One week after neutering, when the pain relief (Metacam) and antibiotics (Septrim) had finished, he started squeaking when peeing and pooping, and was straining when pooping. Took him back...
