    I just removed a huge hay poke from inside my guinea pig's eyelid. What should I do now?

    Hi, I woke up this morning to find one of my guinea pigs very lethargic and unresponsive. After a closer look. I noticed a few small-looking needles poking out of one of her eyes. I figured it was just a few small hay pokes. I never had any experience with hay pokes, so I ended up going to the...

    Some redness around the eye

    Hey everyone, my partner's guniea pig is getting some redness around the eye. We love this guniea pig to death but want to avoid the vet if possible due to money problems. She's still acting normal and eating but we're still concerned about her. Is this anything to be alarmed of?

    Any ideas anyone?

    Hi, I've not long joined the Guinea Forum but have read it a lot before for advice. I trust this forum and need some advice from experienced guinea owners as my poor Marcus has been passed from vet to vet (in the same practice) as they can't find the problem. Three weeks ago during a general...

    Maple has a very swollen and sore foot

    *** I have the vet booked for this afternoon, and have given some Metacam. *** Maple was bonded with Blackjack a little under 2 weeks ago, and it was a very frantic bonding.
