    Booger/Pus in guinea pigs ear

    One of my guinea pigs has been scratching her ear more than usual and shaking her head a lot. I checked her ear and there is a white looking booger thing at the very bottom in there and I am not sure if this is an ear infection or and emergency? Is there any way I can make this better for her...

    Do you clean piggy ears?

    It has somehow been a debate on whether to clean piggies's ears or not? I've found some tutorials on youtube and the "breeders" here i often read that they clean piggy ears to avoid ear infections? How true is this and do you have an experience?

    I'm not sure if it’s a fungal infection or not but my 1 year old female guinea pig has a small patch of dry scaly skin behind each ear.

    Inflamed Ear?

    hey everybody, So today when I went to clean the pig cage I noticed my pig, Gizmo, has an inflamed ear. The inflammation is only on the top of the ear, not his inner ear. I have recently started to put coconut oil on gizmos ears (because he gets flaky and dry ears) and when I put the coconut...

    Behind The Ear

    Today was weigh-in day and overall check for the boys. I noticed that Toffee had an area behind the ear that was a little bare. The skin looked kind of dry, but I haven’t noticed him scratching himself a lot there or anything. He didn’t like me moving his hair to look at it, and shook himself a...

    What's This On My Guinea Pigs Ear?

    I have had my piggies for about a month and a half now. They're both about 1 year old. My Abyssinian piggy Chary has a scaly, scabbed wound on his left ear and I am worried about what it could be and how it got there. Any ideas what it could be?

    Flaky Ear

    I'm a newbie. I got Peanut about three weeks ago from petsmart. She's been acting normal from what I've read about Guinea pigs since I'm very new at having one. But I've noticed that one of her ears in hard at the edges on the outside and when I turned her ear over it was flaky. The other one...
