    Advice please! - Teenage boars

    I have two 9 month old boars. They have always been a pair that since the very start have been a bit bothersome. One is more a trouble maker than others.

    Shy Guinea Pig

    I’ve had Macy for coming on about three years. She is quite outgoing. Like most Guinea pigs, shell run if I try to pick her up but she’ll be fine immediately after. I can pet her through the cage and could basically scream (not that I do or would) and she’d be fine if not a small freeze. When I...

    Weird lump. Tumor?

    I noticed this weird thing in my guinea pigs fur this morning and thought it was just goop in his hair. At closer examination, the skin around it is raised almost like a lump and it seems it split open and now this hard white goop is coming out of it that has dried. Does anyone know what it is?
