    Soap In Piggie's Eye!

    Hi! I just bathed my piggies for the first time and I think I got a little soap in one of their eyes by accident! She keeps blinking her one eye a lot. Will she wash it out herself? I feel so bad it must sting 😔

    Eye bulging

    I have a 2 year old guinea pig. I took her to the vet a couple weeks ago because her right eye was bulging (I’ll attach a picture) the vet had a look and says it looks like she has poked her left eye with hay causing an ulcer.

    Does this look like a fungal infection?

    Hi! I’ve just spotted this on one of the guinea pigs. I’ve got a vet appointment booked for Monday, but just wondering if any one has any clue what it is. Is it a fungal infection?

    Do I need a second opinion on Poppies eye?

    Hi! Last night I noticed my one year old female guinea was the slightest bit swollen and teary in one eye. Checked again in the morning and it was definitely a little more swollen but I wasn’t sure if it was serious or something that may pass. The vet I use is obviously operating differently...

    White eye film

    I have a 5 year old piggy and recently noticed a white film covering the bottom part of her eye, it doesn’t seem to be affecting her as she still eats/drinks/plays so I’m hoping it’s just a cataract. Do you think it could be anything worse though? Normally I’d just go straight to the vets but...
