    Holding in going to toilet

    Hi, sorry if this is long but want to explain the best I can. I have a 3 year old female guinea pig who lost her sister to bloat around a month ago. Both the same age and had them both since they were young, with no other guinea pigs. She lives in a c&c cage, with an upstairs. The upstairs is...

    Pain killer wearing off too fast

    Hi all! One of my poor ladies has been battling cystitis on and off for months now. She’s recently gone downhill again but this time her painkiller seems to be wearing off quite fast. She was prescribed 0.4ml of cat metacam 2x a day. After she gets it she’s so happy - running around and eating...

    cystease

    Nancy has been prescribed half a tablet of cystease. I couldn't pull it apart so I ended up trying to cut it with scissors and one half flew across the kitchen oops! Is there a better way please? I tried to feed it on a piece of veg but she turned her nose up at it and as she has a missing tooth...

    Bladder Pain 6 Year Old Female Pig

    Hi Everyone, I’m looking for some advice for our 6 year old pig. In April this year she had a bladder stone removed and recovered very well after the surgery. Several months passed and she started making pained noises when urinating again. We took her back to the vet fully expecting that she...

    Reasons for weight loss?

    My lovely pig, Pig, has been loosing weight for a few months now following what we think is a case of bad sterile interstitial cystitis (more info on a previous recent thread here), despite us still syringe feeding 60ml/day, and him eating for himself (veg, hay, biscuits). He used to be 1450g...

    Not gaining/maintaining weight

    Hello! I've got a previous thread from the end of June when my boy Pig (aged 2) was struggling with squeaky wees/poos. To summarise - he had 2 CT scans, X-rays, ultrasounds and urine testing with nothing showing for it other than a little blood in the urine, and it seems like interstitial...

    Sulfatrim dosage for cystitis

    Hello, My poor piggy Star has been battling cystitis for some time. Each time the vet prescribes 0.17mls of Sulfatrim twice a day. Star weighs 978g. I’ve questioned my vet about the dose as it seems low to me and the cystitis keeps returning. Could someone shed some light on the dosage here...

    Possible interstitial cystitis... Looking for answers...

    Good morning! My gorgeous boy Piglet (I’m biased I know) has been having bladder issues for some time now. He’s had numerous infections in the past which antibiotics have cleared, however since December he’s experienced blood in his urine and pain when peeing - we’ve tried two different...

    Baytril dosage

    Hi, One of my guinea pigs seems to got both a uri and cystitis at the same time and has been prescribed both metacam and Baytril 2.5% (1mg, once a day). My query is with the dosage of Baytril. 1mg a day seems to be almost double the recommended dose, is it too much? Admittedly, he is a large...

    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...

    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...
