    Feet problems

    Hi, I noticed my guinea pig has some kind of soft bumps on both of her feet. I went to the vet, she didn't know what it is, tried to scratch it and it started bleeding a lot. On one feet it is larger than on the other. Guinea pig is eating like normal, running and doesn't seem to change its...

    Hello piggie lovers out there, I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice for my guinea pig Leia's back paws?

    Rough joint surfaces, growing gaps, and toes staying together

    Due to what the vet thinks is genetic, my girl Cashew stopped walking on her back left leg a few days ago out of nowhere - no accidents, no external injuries, and no other illnesses. After multiple x-rays, the vet found that her joint surfaces are becoming rough near the knee and that the gaps...

    Poorly Red Feet / Possible Allergy?

    Hi, Took Flash to the vets yesterday, as one of his feet had a red patch on them, it appears that all of his feet according to the vet I saw are actually affected. The vet thinks it may be an allergy. It's not the start of bumble foot as there has been no signs of infection or any injury to...

    Dirty Piggy

    I posted a few times a while back about one of my piggys chamomile who had a bladder infection, and I'm worried she may get one again. For the past few days her feet have been very dirty and I've been cleaning them off every night during cuddle time, today I wanted to get a closer look because...

    Red Feet?

    I've had my guinea pigs for a few months now, and I've realised their feet are very red. I have attached an image below. Their cage has fleece bedding with towels underneath, so their feet are pretty supported.

    I just brought home a 4 year old guinea pig named Violet. We had a 15 minute car ride home and she did NOT like it. When we got home I gave her some veggies and held her in my lap. She seemed fine and i put her back in the cage. I had to leave for several hours. When I came back,I had to...
