    Piggies keep peeing in food bowls

    Hi everyone! since I got my two ladies about 2 months ago, they’ve been regularly peeing in their food bowls. Initially they only had one for dry food and one for veggies, so I assumed it was a territory thing, since there’s two of them. However I have gotten them bowls each, which are regularly...

    My baby guinea pig won’t eat any veggies!

    I am very worried as my month and a half old guinea is not eating any veggies, I’ve done lots of research and I see that guinea pigs need a lot of vegetables in their diet... I am wondering if I should bring her to the vet but I don’t want to pay $100 just for them to tell me that she’s just...

    Picky Hay Habits

    I've had my Piggies for a few weeks now and I've noticed that there's a lot of hay wastage going on, especially with the lovely ladies! They are on a OxBow Timothy Hay I get from a local pet food store, and while the boys up top will eat it all just fine, no complaints, the ladies will pull it...

    Guinea pig likes dog food?

    Evening everyone, I’ve recently noticed one of my girls likes to eat dry dog food. Whenever I get them out she’ll always run over to the dog bowl and start eating it. I remove the bowl now when they’re out but I don’t know if it would of caused any harm. She only had a few bits. thanks in advance.

    Help! My baby Guinea Pig only eats the seed pod of the hay.

    Hello people, I just got a guinea pig 4 days ago now. I think she is a baby because she is very tiny. So, I bought her Timothy grass and she only eats very little of it. I have had to dump the rest out. She will especially only eat the seed pod that looks like soft threads of hair. I don't know...

    Weird behaviour with bell peppers

    This isn't so much a big concern, just something odd I've noticed from my pigs that I'm pretty curious about. So my two boars used to LOVE bell pepper, especially red ones they were their absolute favourite. However over the last week or so they've both refused to take them from me, at most a...

    Changed From Museli Over To Nuggets!

    :yahoo:I have seen such a change in my piggy Noodle over the last few days! I've been mixing her museli with nuggets (pets@home I know they're not the best) to try get her on the same as my other pig MoMo so when they go in the same cage there won't be any hassle! She's been so much better...

    Obsessed With Lettuce ?!

    My 2 month old Finn has taken a huge liking to romaine lettuce. I give him a good bit but when he finishes it he looks around for more! He even nudges my fingers and basically loves on me probably hoping he'd get more. If I don't give him more he seriously squeals at me. He eats his pellets and...

    Help! My Cavy Stopped Eating

    Here's the gist, my Cavy is refusing to eat his pellets or his hay but he will gladly accept fruits and veggies and his treats. He is kind of large (always has been since I adopted him) and this is unlike him to refuse to eat his pellets or hay. He is always the first one to his food bowl to...
