    How to help lice until vet appointment

    We're just going through it over here. So, I lost my Guts today. And at the vets yesterday, she mentioned he had some lice. Which was surprising, considering they're indoor piggies, but it could have been an off bag of hay or a hospital stay I suppose. Either way, now my last boy, Bert has...

    Struggling with death of guinea pig

    Hi everyone, Today was a VERY unexpectedly bad day. My guinea pig, since her checkup in August, has just kept getting thinner. She LOVED to eat, and always took her veggies, but she just could not keep her weight. Last night, she was perfectly normal. This morning, I woke up and she showed...

    Sleep Tight King Nibbler

    As some of you may now, our little big guy Nibbler went to round 10 in his 4th battle with URI/Pneumonia on Monday, 9/12/22. He fought all the way to the end but was unable to pull through.

    Goodbye my baby Oreo

    My baby Oreo died this morning, she was my first guinea pig and my first one to lose. It’s so strange to not see her in her cage munching on some veg. She was a fantastic guinea pig who was the big boss of everyone. She was so cute and cuddly! She could also be stubborn and moody but that was...

    Will Benny Be Okay On His Own?

    Today Ben lost his lifelong friend Jerry. They didn't live together (in cages on top of each other) and rarely spent time together other than floor time (still separated by cage), Ben was definitely the dominant piggy and seemed to get annoyed when Jerry would try to cuddle him etc. What I'm...

    Grieving Guinea Pig

    yesterday I had to have one of my Guinea pigs put to sleep, unfortunately he left behind his companion who was his best friend and also his son. I know I have to leave him to his grieving stage, and he's obviously struggling as he won't even let me clean his cage out, so I'm going to leave him...
