    Hi everyone! First of all, Merry Christmas 😊 On Wednesday last week, I noticed that my guinea pig Bebita (6 years old female) had been doing half-sneezes occasionally, accompanied by some weight loss and a little bit of blood found in one of her nostrils. I took her to the vet, and...

    Hello! My Guinea pig, Honey, has had a few UTI’s. The first two times, doxycycline stopped the infection. After hearing her squeak while going to the bathroom, I started using a doxycycline bottle (stored properly) from the vet prescribed a few months ago that isn’t expired. However, after a...

    How fast do URI's progress?

    Please help - loss of appetite and bloating

    My pigs are getting both Doxycycline and Baytril at once. I know giving cisapride with Baytril is fine, but is it still fine to give cisapride with both Doxycycline and Baytril? Also, this is a separate question, but on the Doxycycline it says "Take with food", but i can't give one Piggie...
