    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...

    White Ear And Big Cut

    Got my boy out tonight and noticed this on his ear. Anyone know what it could be? Or if it is a vet visit needed? Any help and advice would be appreciated. Thank you

    Behind The Ear

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...
