    New Cage For Piggies :)

    Okay so I think I found a cage that will work but I don’t trust myself so can the pig experts here tell me if this cage looks okay for two guinea pigs (who get along not as well I hoped they would yet sometimes manage)? It looks divided to me but can someone make sure? ;-; Thank you! <3

    Baby guinea pigs eaten bulb leaves

    Hello, my two baby guinea pigs have eaten about a 1.5cm squared piece of bulb leaf. They are this together, so it would be less for each one. Please help, will they be okay?

    Suspected bumblefoot

    I returned home from a week's holiday yesterday (six hour drive 😭) and my two hooligans stayed with a friend as opposed to my nan after their recent hay poke adventures (my nan can't see if anything is in/near the eye). And I cannot fault how she's looked after them. Both look happy and if I'm...

    Hi! My guinea sort of get along and I was thinking about getting a new bigger cage. To make things more clear, I got Candy, and then a few months later I got Holly.

    Fast breathing?

    My guinea pigs both have URIs which are getting treated with Baytril, but about two days ago i noticed my guinea pig (one of the two) had begun breathing quite quickly (her sides were going in and out pretty rapidly). She's still eating and being active, but it's kind of worrying me. You could...
