    Pig died suddenly, confused if I made the right decisions

    Hi, I’m not sure if this is the right place to post so sorry if it’s not. My pigs, Rico and Kip had been cagemates since 2017. I got Rico in 2016 and think he was around 6. Very suddenly a few days ago he stopped eating and was very inactive, we brought him to the vet who said it seems like...

    my darling guinea pig Sugar died in her sleep :( I haven't cried that hard in a while. she was 5 years old. I'm not sure why she died but it might have just been old age :( I'm not home rn but my parents said she looked peaceful so I'm glad.

    New Guinea pig after death

    Last night my Guinea pig stevie died leaving his 4 year old cagemate alyx alone. I know that Guinea pigs are social animals so we are looking for a new one. But how old should it be? If we got a younger one (a baby), I'm afraid that it would be alone after alyxs death and we would have to keep...

    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...

    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...

    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...
