    Crusty Nips...

    I just picked up my pet in order to do some cage cleaning and she has this on her nipples I looked into it to see if she had ovarian cysts. I think it’s important for you to know that she is in a cage directly next to a male guinea pig. I often hear them rumble strutting and they have always...

    Hi all, I am posting because I follow your advice on most things and at the present moment my 4.5yo boar Ralph has confirmed (X-ray below) bladder stones. My vet told me the only option was to do surgery (which I don’t think he is strong enough to survive due to losing his best friend only a...

    Double chin?

    I’ve noticed my skinny pigs have what looks like a double chin, I’ve had a feel and there’s no lumps and they don’t seem to be in any pain or discomfort because of it, so I’m wondering if it is maybe fat, but I don’t think they are overweight at all. My pink girl, Amara has the biggest ‘chin’...
