When my two piggies started arguing, it led to a fight and cookie was probably grooming himself a...

    Hello! I’m really worried right now. Although I am experienced with guinea pigs, I am not a pro. My guinea pig recently peed pink a few days ago then it stopped and returned to their usual color. It started being pink when I slowly adjusted them to their new pellets. They loved it but shortly...

    Eye ulcer?

    Hi sorry if this is long but I’m concerned about Scooby’s eye. It started September/October time last year. It started out with just a tiny lump that you could only notice if you pulled his eye back so I took him to the vets and got given some eye drops (sorry I can’t remember the name). They...

    GUINEA PIG HANDLING

    Hello everyone, I’m just wondering how much should you take your piggies out of their cage or give them lap time? How important is this and how much do you let your piggies have floor and lap time? Is once a week enough or should it be more? Thanks x

    Pet shops

    Hi all, I’m very curious about what you all think about buying pets from pet shops and any bad experiences you have encountered with them. I highly dislike pet shops for many reasons. So so many parents go in with their kids and end up buying a pet they know nothing about. I feel so sorry for...

    BOAR GLUE?

    Hi I’ve noticed this white thing on Scrappys penis, I’m really worried as I don’t know what it is and I really don’t want everyone to say take him to a vet! How can I get it off? The 2 bits at the bottom of him are woodshavings it’s the penis part I’m worried about.
