    So my 3 year old lady Boo just did this strange retching movement, like a cat coughing up a hairball. She was munching some hay at the same time as doing this so it wasn't like she was in distress. It was for maybe 10 seconds and she seems fine now. Immediately after, I let her out of the cage...

    Recurring Hiccups?

    I have a piggy who’s nearly 8 so you can image I’m a bit jumpy about her health 😅 recently I’ve noticed she has reoccurring bouts of hiccups. It’s very short and doesn’t upset her. I mostly notice it when she’s out for floor time but it’s happened once or twice in the cage too. She does have...

    Piggy Hiccups?

    So I've noticed recently that my girl Toast seems to be getting hiccups after eating her vegetables. I'm not even sure if it is hiccups, can guinea pigs get hiccups? It only seems to be after she's ate (usually eats her veggies very quickly) she seems to make this coughing sound for a minute or...
