    So yesterday my guinea pig died. I thought I’d come here to find out what caused the death because I completely could not understand what has happened and I thought somebody here would know. I found him outside in his run collapsed on the floor. I immediately carried him inside, he was still...

    Death of Guinea Pigs

    Hello All, I've brought 3 guinea pigs from a local pet store, all little ones, maybe 2 month old. One after another all the 3 have died in similar circumstances with a week's gap between each. The following happened in sequence (D=Day of death) 1) Super healthy, energetic and fully active till...

    Gigi was one of my first guinea pigs, he was the last one who passed in 2015 and after he passed we decided to get chickens which didn't work out so in 2019 we adopted the 5 boars we have now :) He was also albino which is why his eyes are red :)

    black flecks on rear end of guinea pig

    Hi everyone, My guinea pig has these small black flecks on the lower end of her body that comes off very easily when i run my hand through her and I thought it might just be residue from playing in hay/toys or just some dead skin. She does not seem bothered at all and they are not moving at all...

    Dealing with loss?

    I don’t think I’ve cried as much as I have after losing my baby. His final few minutes with me were spent snuggling with me listening to ‘Somewhere only we know’. When he passed away I didn’t cry. I was just completely numb. The second I closed my bedroom door I just collapsed and started...

    Weird and sad news

    One of the two guinea pigs died. I wasnt sure if he was dead because when I touched him, he twitched and the other one was humping him. They already did the dominance ritual months ago. He stopped moving, so I think he died right in front of me or just an hour ago because rigor mortis hadnt set...

    Guinea Pig Died All The Sudden

    My pig died unexpectedly during the night because when I woke up I went to check up on her she was lying on the floor stiff. I was shocked, she was only 3 and a half years old I don’t think it’s because of old age. I fed her regularly and I was going to clean her cage today. Her cage was big. I...

    Urgent! Dead Piggie!

    Hi, I am new to the forum but today my guinea pig died :( so I made a coffin out of some cardboard but the hole was only 6-8 inches deep, so there was only 1-2 inches of soil on top of the coffin.
