    Unexpected loss of 8 month old boar.....

    Hi, I’m wondering if anyone can help. We’ve had guinea pigs for several years and never encountered this problem. I had two eight month old boars and one (Krug) unfortunately had to be put to sleep on Christmas Eve. We’re devastated because he was so sweet but now have a problem. The remaining...

    Eevee <3

    Hi everyone I just went to a vet an hour away for 6 hours and with a bill of $450 just to find one of my guinea pigs, Eevee, passed away. I don't know what to do. I'm letting Pandora see her right now but she seems to be scared. I've only had them both since September and it seems like she...

    Guinea pig death and what could have caused it?

    Sadly, yesterday I had a guinea pig pass away and it was very sad. We buried her into the flower bed and we plan to plant some very pretty flowers for her. She wasn't one of the oldest guinea pigs though and her death was very sudden? Her father and mother are still alive but she was the only...

    One of our two piggies died a few days ago, what should we do?

    A few days ago, one of our pigs, buttons, died due to old age. A peaceful death in her sleep. Our remaining pig, doughnuts, has been moved to another cage because we feared that if we put her back in the old one without her sister, she might give up. I know a lot of people say to get another...

    One of My Boys, Koda, Died

    Hey everyone. I haven't been around for a while due to personal circumstances that have kept me busy. My mom had a heart attack and can't get scheduled for surgery to help her because of covid, and we're moving my grandma into hospice tomorrow. Naturally, this is utterly heartbreaking to me...

    Loss of a pig

    Hi everyone, I have had to make the decision to put my 5 year old boar to sleep this evening. He was suffering with kidney disease and had deteriorated very quickly in a matter of hours. I am heartbroken. I know I need to bring him home and give his brother the chance to say his goodbyes. I...

    Losing a brother.

    Hi everyone. Unfortunately today one of my piggies lost his battle with an infection :( He was sick and old and it was just his time to leave us. Unfortunately he has left behind his brother, who’s been with him pretty much all of his life. I don’t really have the energy for a new pig, so I know...

    I'm still really struggling following the death of a pig

    In late October my guinea pig, Chip went downhill rapidly. He had no prior symptoms, one morning I woke up and noticed him audibly crying, and it was as though he'd lost half of his bodyweight overnight. Luckily I work from home, so I was able to rush him to the vet but they struggled to...

    Soft, smelly poops after death of cagemate?

    Until recently I had two guinea pig extremely bonded boars housed together, though last weekend one of them suddenly fell ill. He lost a lot of weight very quickly, was hot to touch, making pained noises, and occasionally gasping in pain. We rushed him to the vet, and were given an extensive...

    Recent loss.

    Two days ago my male guinea pig Tiberius died rather suddenly. His bonded mate(I had him neutered so no babies), my female Elsie was very attached to him. I haven't gotten around to getting them more companions, so she is now alone. How do I know when to get another pig for my diminished...

    Grieving over the loss of my guinea pig

    Hi all, I’m writing this post because I sadly lost my eldest guinea pig, aged 8, on Thursday 25th July. The grief has only just really hit and I suppose I’m seeking some advice and support as I’m feeling very angry, guilty and resentful. As you can probably recall, we had temperatures of 35oc...

    My Guinea Pig Died A Sudden Death

    Tonight 18/5/19 at around 6pm, my 3 year old guinea pig died suddenly. She wasn’t eating her food or wanting any water, wouldn’t move from the one spot, every 5-10 seconds it was like she did a big hiccup or it looked like she was convulsing and she kept making a weird sound with her mouth...

    Two deaths is two days

    Hello, I have joined to ask a burning question. We had two guinea pigs second hand, one was the son of the other. We had them for 5 years until the father died very suddenly. We were all very sad but figured it was due to old age as he must have been 10. The other guinea pig, his son, showed...

    What can we do for him?

    one of my boys Cheese (the orange one) recently passed away from unknown reasons. The other one, macaroni and him were bonded. I've read that guineapigs can get depressed after their mate passes away, is there anything I can do to prevent this? Or is there anything i can do to help him in...

    Can't cope- need answers

    A few months ago in September my baby Honey died from mysterious causes. I've posted a couple of times about him for other, minor issues. I usually can move on in about a few weeks or so, but his death was far different from all the others and has left me grieving for longer than usual due to...

    My 5 year old guinea pig was put to sleep ..

    In June I found out my guinea pig Mickey had a tumor not knowing if it was possibly a cyst, I went to the vet and sadly told me that it was a tumor and there was no form of removing it without it growing back, this left me with knowing she was either going to live until she got to the point it...

    Too soon to bond?

    I had 2 pairs of boars but Bumble recently passed on Friday so I was thinking I should bond Bambi with Horace and Benji. When I first got Horace I tried bonding him with Bumble and Bambi it didn’t work out as they were too territorial but I was thinking now that Bumble has passed it’s worth a...
