    Hi. As the title states, I just accidentally fed my two boars moldy bell peppers. From the appearance of the pepper, it looked normal.

    Guinea pig not eating

    I have two guinea pigs both around 4 years old. Both love food and hay. Medici (the pig in question) was 1.6kg and was always a big boy but recently, over the last 8 or so days he lost his appetite. He barely ate for three days, so I took him to a vet and they said he had slightly over grown...
