    Messy Eater or Dental Issues?

    Hi, I’m a first time piggie owner, and I can’t get an answer as to whether or not my pig is a messy eater or if she has dental issues. So basically, my girl Sherlock always gets a wet chin when she’s eating food. It’s not wet any other time, but I read that a wet chin can be related to dental...

    Critical Care worked so well for this sick piggie he thought he could fly!

    Jokes aside, fortunately Algernon was uninjured by his tumble. We picked him up, checked he wasn't in pain, then continued with his syringe feeding, which he happily finished. Some background: On friday evening me and my wife were on the sofa watching TV. Our piggies are allowed to free roam...

    Clover and Stella have finally taken to floor time

    Today I got Clover and Stella's floor time area all set up and let down the ramp of their cage. I called to them and Stella hopped right out down the ramp, then ran over to the pile of veggies in the middle of their floor time area. Like normal, she noticed that Clover wasn't there and scampered...

    Constantly eating plastic!

    Hi! My guinea pig Butternut will not stop eating the plastic in his c&c cage. He’s eaten so much of it. He’s about 10 weeks old, and lives with an older boar who’s about 4.5, but very active, and they get on really well - there has never been any aggression (even teeth chattering) from the...

    Guinea pig making weird faces

    I just checked on him right now and he’s making weird faces. Like he has something stuck in his mouth. I know my old guinea pig would make these faces when she was having trouble eating, so it’s just making me worried. I’m hoping it will correct itself soon, maybe it’s just a piece of hay stuck...

    Guinea pig making wet noise when he eats?

    My skinny pig has been eating weird and now and then makes so sort of wet noise he also has to hold his food down and rips pieces off of it? My other Guineas have never done any of these things? And I just over thinking? Help! He eats perfectly fine though and hasn’t stopped at all.

    Puffing up

    I hope this is the right place. I’ve noticed recently that our boys puff up when they’re eating. It doesn’t happen at any other time. Though yesterday I did see Toffee had puffed up and was just relaxing. Is it normal? As said it only seems to be when theyreeating (their veg).
