    Poop check pls

    My piggy has been on antibiotics for 8 days now and her poops are being weird ever since. We've been feeding her probiotics and syringe feeding hay and pellets to her. No veggies. At first she was always hiding, maybe because of the antibiotic side effects but now she's coming outside and...

    Weird chirping noises

    I’ve had my guinea pig, Martin, for about 2 years now and he just started making these weird chirping noises almost like a bird. I took a video and it will be below. Please help.

    Not Sure What Behavior Means

    Hi! So, I fed my guinea pig this morning, and I noticed that she did something strange that I hadn’t noticed ever before. She flattened her ears against her head and they moved up and down constantly while she was eating. I hope this doesn’t mean anything bad. Thank you, your help is much...

    Our guinea pigs are hiding from us.

    Hello all! I’m looking for some guidance today since our two young piggies Fawn and Willow are hiding from us and seem quite scared of us. If they can see you, they will hide. Even if you’re a good distance away from them. They run into their little house and don’t come out until you’ve left and...

    Strange noise?

    My 4 year old female guinea pig has been making this noise recently, especially at nighttime. She hasn’t shown any signs of stopping the noise, but is eating and drinking fine and seems active. Anyone experienced this noise before who could help me out?

    Advice please! - Teenage boars

    I have two 9 month old boars. They have always been a pair that since the very start have been a bit bothersome. One is more a trouble maker than others.

    Shy Guinea Pig

    I’ve had Macy for coming on about three years. She is quite outgoing. Like most Guinea pigs, shell run if I try to pick her up but she’ll be fine immediately after. I can pet her through the cage and could basically scream (not that I do or would) and she’d be fine if not a small freeze. When I...
