    Runny nose

    The only times he has runny nose is only when he's in his cage and even then it doesn't happen often (what the cage contains: litter, his own pillow and hay), but when he goes out everything is fine again. Should I change something in the cage? Or is it something worse?

    Head waving

    Hello, My three-year-old sow is waving her head away from fresh food whenever I hold it out, though she will finally eat it after about 25 seconds of head waving. Has anyone encountered this before? Her cage partner the same age is fine and neither have lost weight.

    White Spots In Cage For Two Weeks

    My Guinea pig is about 10 weeks old and for two weeks now she's had white spots in her cage. I know it's excess calcium, but how long does it last or what should I do? I've changed her piggy food thinking it might have too much calcium and she hasn't had celery or carrots in awhile. Thank you! :)
