    Piggies Not Eating Hay!

    Hey, so i got 2 new guinea pigs a couple days ago (Both of them are about 3 and a half weeks old), I'm almost positive they are healthy, but neither of them are eating hay, they give small bites on the hay but never seem to actually eat big pieces... I wonder if this is related to them being so...

    A Mate

    I have 1 male guinea pig. I have been reading the forums of people and their 2 guineas. I was wondering if it is ok to have 1 or should I get a mate for him? If I should get another one, how can I do the meeting process? But if it is fine with 1 what can I do to make sure he doesn't get lonely...

    Bit Of A Rant....

    Hi! I have 6 beautiful guinea pigs and they are practically my life. I am constantly buying them toys/treats, taking photos of them, cuddling them, playing with them. I love them so much!

    Sudden Death?

    Hi all, So I owned 4 guinea pigs. 2 of them are around 2 1/2 years old, one is 2 and the other is 1 years old. One of my guinea pigs (purchased from pets at home, big mistake) has had constant health problems over the last 2 years. Originally a few weeks after getting her she was breathing...

    Baytril Causing Mushy Poo

    Hi guys! Recently my wee girl got pretty sick and was brought to the vet. There they gave me 4 days worth of baytril. After the four days she was fine and eating as normal. Just now I noticed her poops are pretty mushy. The baytril doses finished on the 18th but I've heard it can cause mushy...

    New Guinea Pig Trouble!

    Hi! I'm new to this forum so I am not sure if I'm posting in the right spot. I adopted two young guinea pigs two days ago. They had been living together before I adopted them for about a week or so. They are both still very small. I feel at a loss. They are very shy and nervous. I do not...

    Lump On My Guinea Pig- Help

    I noticed a small lump on my guinea pig this week, thankfully I work at a vets and was able to take her in for a check up which the vet then noticed a grape size lump which is more internal than the small one. I’m pretty sure the small one was 9mm and the bigger one was 22mm so around 2 cm. the...

    Not Eating Hay Or Drinking Water?

    Hi! I'm a New Guinea pig owner. He's about two months and his name is Pumpkin. He was doing well the first month I had him (got him when he was 1 month old) and was popcorning, wheeking, and exploring. But now going into the second month I noticed he's not being so active. Is he bored? Should I...

    Shedding Hair

    Hey Guys, My guinea Leah who is about two months old has started to shed hair. She is a short haired, smooth coat Harlequin (i think!). Anyway, we live in Australia where it is just about to be summer and I am wondering if it is just that she is losing her winter coat (similar to how dogs do)...

    Went to Pets@Home today to get another 1kg bag (I think lol its the biggest one they do) of Timothy hay. I know it's not the best value for money (actually think they messed up as the sign said £6.99 and I paid £4 something :whistle:) but Mo loves it and Steve has been on it since I got him...
