    Should I split my piggie’s Metacam?

    Hello! On Friday afternoon I noticed one of our boars (Mr Pig) was hunching over and being quite vocal, so naturally I sprung to action and went over to investigate and found little pink spots on the fleece. A quick bit of research seemed to indicate bladder issues such as an infection or...

    Guinea piggy may be sick :(

    My name is Hannah and I own 4 guinea pigs. Recently one of my guinea pigs has been acting strangely. She makes what seems to be a forced squeaking sound. When she uses the restroom she lays in it and gets it all over herself. She's become aggressive towards my other female guinea pig which she...

    Help. My guinea pig is grieving and has G.I. Stasis!

    What’s happening to my guinea pig? My guinea pig Chester is usually a very energetic and healthy guinea pig, but ever since his cage mate passed a few days ago he has been lethargic and depressed. He stopped eating and pooping so we brought him to the emergency vet and they said he has the...

    Sick Pig :(

    Hello everyone, my female 4 year old Guinea pig seems to be very sick. We took her to the vet today, but apparently there was nothing wrong with her except slight weight loss. This behavior started about 16 hours ago. We got some antibiotics to give her daily. Her fur is puffed up, she sits in...

    I want what’s best for my piggy... and I’m not sure what that is

    I’m a new guinea pig owner and I love my girl. When I got her I was informed that a guinea pig would be okay by herself, but everywhere I have read says that they need a friend. I’m a college student so I can’t have more than one. I take care of her and I try to spend time with her everyday but...

    Guinea pigs back legs sorta dragging ?

    My parents are avoiding going to the vet but if necessary we will go. My guinea pig is about 4 years old and is very calm as opposed to his brother and dad whom are always running around. I'd been noticing he had been a little lazy lately but not enough to worry. When i went to check on them I...

    Scared for my guiena.

    Hi so I made this post because I can’t find much information on safari but I check my guiena pigs vaginal area often as one time my one guiena girl got hay stuck in there so I just want to be cautious now. So I just hold them rocking them back gently and check the area to make sure no infection...

    Skinny pig red spots!

    Hello everyone, About a week ago my skinny pig Jelly got what appears to be a spot on his back. It was quite red but not risen. It looked a bit like a scab so I assumed he scratched himself too hard so I just trimmed his nails. Yesterday I saw 3 more of these spots but no scab just red spots. I...

    Overactive grease gland

    So health checks completed and it seems like Misty has a bit of an overactive grease gland and she had quite a lot of yellow gunk in that area. I cleaned it away, but a load of fur came away with it (I was super gentle) I've never dealt with grease gland problems before. Is there anything I can...

    Need some advice

    Laine this morning just doesn't seem herself. She didn't rush over to the fresh hay like she usually does, however she was taking treats. Her weight is as it should be. There doesn't seem anything apparent that's wrong. Obviously with all that's going on, I don't want to bother the vets...

    Guineapig suddenly lost a patch of fur

    First of all, my 4 guineapigs have hay mites or *static lice* these do not cause any harm or hair loss and most guineapigs carry these. I bathe them with medicated shampoo and give them ivermectin behind the ear to help keep numbers of lice down. One of my girls (juno) has suddenly got a bold...

    Hi, Not a piggy post, but i guess still relevant. So my bunny has had loss of balance today (I am going to see a vet so I'm not seeking a diagnosis) and is just rather wobbly. He isn't paralyzed. He is still using his hind legs to itch and can kick etc (and hump- thanks for the demonstration...

    Single Piggie

    Hi I hope someone can help! Just as a little background to my guinea pig we got him single as there was 2 others left with him so we decide to take the 1 instead of leaving him. Makaio was bullied by all the other piggies and it was pretty clear considering his chewed off ear when we got him...
