    Ringworm

    Hi all, I have been thinking about getting some Piggies for a while now. I have done months worth of research on them and their care, but the one thing that is holding me back from getting some piggies is the fear of them coming out in ringworm. I have asked so many different people about it...

I gave her oranges for the first like two years I had her but then gradually stopped and I once in awhile give her an apple. But the past couple months she’s been squeaking less and when she does...

    My Guinea Pig Won't Keep Down Food.

    Hai, I have a guinea pig named Storm, and I guess she's always been a picky eater. I remember when I first got her (Will be a year on Dec. 10th) and I wasn't educated enough. We bought her the food with the colored shapes, and she'd only eat those, not the brown pellets. So, I changed up her...

    My Guinea Pig Has Blood In Her Pee?

    I noticed something strange about my guinea pigs. I know I will need to go to a vet soon. However I want to make extra sure if my piggies will be okay. I was cleaning their cage and I noticed a little puddle of light red but clear pee. My dad told me he fed them carrots and that's why their pee...

    Why Did My Guinea Pig Die So Young?

    I had 3 guinea pigs, they were all brothers from the same litter. They were all different sizes, one is very big and heavy, the other is just right and likes to play and Pipsqueak (who sadly died not so long ago) has always been very small and delicate. They're all a year and they live in my...
