    Bumblefoot 🙄

    So for awhile I've been noticing a red spot on my boy Manny' foot. It has been there since I got him. But just this week I realized it could be an infection. Right now I can't get veterinarian care but I've read that soaking the foot in warm water and Epsom salt and then wrap it and do that...

It’s very thin plastic (it’s basically a giant inflatable ball, so almost the plastic of like a pool float but maybe even thinner). The hole is about the size of a tennis ball, maybe...

    Dry, bald patch?

    Hello! I’ve recently adopted a young guinea pig. She is 1 or 2 months old. She eats well, and plays. When I first got her though, I noticed a darker looking patch of fur underneath her right ear. Now, a week later. The spot has no hair, and it looks rather dry/flaky. It is about the size of a...

    Guinea pig vet and health query

    Helloooo I’m wondering thoughts and I’m also probably going to vent/release stress too. After I had to have my beautiful Eddie put to sleep, I got another boy for my Teddie, call Errik.

    I’m so so so sorry for yet another post and this being so long 😭 I just didn’t want to keep spamming the post I made yesterday because it’s possibly not relevant anymore.

    Not interested in food?

    Hi everyone, my 6 1/2 year old boy Kip isn’t really interested in food right now. He ate a small bit of cucumber and apple and I gave him a few mls of cc but I’m concerned. I went for a nap around 11:30am this morning and overslept until 3pm because I forgot to set an alarm and he was absolutely...
