    HELP! My pig is hooting!

    Hello! My boy Pip has started making hooting noises! Since last night, he has not moved very far from his little house. I would say Pip is a little bit of an over achiever when it comes to his day to day life so I am very worried for him. He will not eat his favorite hay, nor will he drink...

    Guinea Pigs Acting Strange and Hardly Moving

    Hi, just signed up to post this. My guinea pigs are acting strange. I’ve had them for two years, and they’re essentially wild Guinea pigs (they go out the entire day and we just shut them in at night) which means they’re not very tame. They don’t get easily spooked, and are usually calm...
