    Planning for mites!

    Today, I saw the saddest sight at a pet store, which I was visiting for the first time. They had around 8 guinea pigs—all which, to be fair, looked to be reasonably healthy, save for one sweet boy. His ears were clearly infected by fungus, and one was entirely decomposed, and was basically just...

    Serious fungal infection?

    I've recently lost one of my beloved piggy named Butter (had 2), not sure was it due to sudden change of temperature as it had only been a month since I moved him out from the kitchen (a bit far away from stove of course) that he used to grow and live for about a year since he joined the family...

    Hey, I'm back again lol. My little baby Pico has this weird white crust on his ear, just noticed it today. I haven't noticed him acting strangely though, and his cagemate seems fine. I'm not sure what this is and I'm not allowed to see a vet until next week, so I'm getting very anxious as to...

    Baby pigs with bald patches

    Hi there I rehomed 2 baby sows yesterday afternoon. 8.5 weeks. When I collected the lady said that they were born with cradle cap. She had given to Pets At Home for advice (sigh) and they advised to treat with coconut oil 3 times a day. She said it had cleared considerably since then. I have...

    Strange rash/ bald spot on boar’s back, could be mites...?

    Last night when I went to hold all my boars (I have four) Floyd had a strange scabby patch on his back with missing hair. I haven’t noticed it before now and I hold them all often. I got him and his cage mate pretty recently from a private owner, and while they will sometimes chase each other...

    I have ringworm, what do I do about the pigs?

    I am a fairly new guinea pig owner* with three guinea pigs and today I found out that I have ringworm or some other kind of fungal infection on my scalp, I'm not sure what to do. I don't know whether it has come from one of the pigs - one of them did have a patch of red inflamed skin a couple of...

    Fungal infection?

    Hey all, Is this a fungal infection? The dime-sized black spot is originally from when he was bitten by his cagemate before I adopted him, but he has since been to the vet and finished a round of antibiotics. The vet told me that I should look out for a fungal infection in the area, which is...

    Dry patch behind guinea pig’s ears?

    I'm not sure if it’s a fungal infection or not but my 1 year old female guinea pig has a small patch of dry scaly skin behind each ear. She has had it for a long time but I always thought it was normal. She also gets flaky ears sometimes and often has a small (but not abnormal) amount of crust...

    Hi all, I got a guinea pig from what I thought was a reputable source, but she turned out to have quite a severe case of ringworm. I've taken her to the vet (prescribed oral antifungal meds) and have nearly finished the treatment course. I've also given her 2 baths. The ringworm is looking much...

    Question Re: Hay, Weight Gain Food

    Since getting my girls back in late May/early June they have always been on the petite side. I have since gotten them up to approximately 840g. After a discussion with my vet and looking at several forums on here, I began slowly introducing small amounts of dry, old-fashioned oats and grated...

    Possible Fungal Infection

    Hi Everyone, Rosie, my 4 month old pig, has had what the vet and I believed to be a fungal infection. It started on her nose and there were bald/dry/itchy spots behind her ears and inside her two back legs. I was given some topical treatments since she was too small to be treated orally, and...
