    Today I found a weird flesh-like ball in my guinea pigs cage, it’s most likely from Minnie, she has a supposed urine infection/uterus infection we’re not quite sure but she’s on medication to help with the pain and hopefully clear it up. The fleshy mass looked like it came from her body (?) and...

    Help! Should I be worried?

    Hello! My guinea pig likes stretching out after a little nap or when being petted. He’s a little chubbier than “normal” piggies and when he stretched out I noticed this there’s a little wider part. When my two piggies started arguing, it led to a fight and cookie was probably grooming himself a...

    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
