    White fleck in my guinea pigs eye

    Hello, I have a vet appointment booked but I am a chronic worrier and so I thought I’d pop on here for some advice! Does this white fleck look like anything to worry about? It’s not bothering him in the slightest, he’s eating, drinking and acting normally, but I’m pretty new to owning piggies...

    Guinea pig eye removal surgery

    We noticed a lump next to the eye on our 3 year old female guinea pig. They are thinking it is an abscess. They did x-rays to confirm that it was not due to anything dental/teeth related. Right now she is on terramycin, orbax, meloxicam and artificial tears. She is unable to lubricate the eye...

    Crusty eye?

    My guinea pigs recovered from a URI about two weeks ago. Yesterday, we picked them up from a four-night stay at my grandma's house. After bringing them back home, I noticed one of my piggies had a bit of white crust in the inner corner of her eye. Although a bit sleepy, she was acting and eating...

    PLEASE HELP - Crusty Eye

    At first it was just little white flakes that would go away, assuming she cleaned them off herself. Now it’s gotten this bad in the span of 3-4 days. It’s only in her left eye, and my other piggy doesnt have it. She also hasnt been eating as many pellets as before. Her and her sister would...

    Hay in back of eye?

    Today morning I saw my guinea pig had a small piece of hay in his eye and as I tried to get it out but it just seemed to have gone on further into it. When I look at it now there isn't any sign of it so I'm not really sure whether it fell off or not. He's not squinting or anything right now and...

    Red stuff around eye

    Does anyone know what this could be? It only appears on Jasmine's right eye. I took her and Pickle to the vet yesterday about excessive scratching caused by mites (which are now gone, thankfully) and now this has appeared out of nowhere. Her eye is otherwise normal (if a little bit red in the...

    Hay in the eye and getting treated for it

    Hello! One of my piggies, Ruby, unfortunately got a tiny little piece of hay (or maybe it was hay dust) in her eye two days ago. I tried taking it off but I couldn't and it managed to get under her lower eyelid. So I was freaking out because I'm aware that this can lead to a major eye injury...

    Guinea pigs eyes rolled to back of head?

    So I own two female guinea pigs, and my Abyssinian, who is 6 in May, displayed some concerning behaviour today. She was layed down comfortably next to my other piggy, when suddenly she let out an annoyed squeak. I rushed over to check on her and saw that whilst she looked asleep, her eyes were...

    Eye Crust?

    Hi everyone, my guinea pig Layla seems to have some eye crust! It's dried whiteish-yellow crust. I just introduced her to my other guinea pig, Cookie, and noticed that Layla had a few sneezes, (around 10 in 1-2 hours). She seems to be eating and drinking properly, but I'm afraid she might have a...

    Hello I got a new guinea pig yesterday after years of not having any and I'm quite worried about this eye (see photos below).

    Sprout's Eye

    Might just be me worrying over nothing, but thought I'd make a post anyway. Have noticed that one of Sprout's eyes looks a little cloudy when seen in certain lights. There's no discharge or irritation, so I don't think he's poked it or had a fight with Chutney. Might be a cataract starting? I...
