    Critical Care for New Piggy

    Hello everyone! I've posted one other time regarding my new piggies, but I've got quite the situation here. I recently adopted 4 baby guinea pigs from a nearby rescue, and while I understand there's a transition period where the piggies will need to get comfy and feel safe, I feel this is...

    Help Appreciated - Bright red eye, Cherry Eye, Conjunctivitis?

    This is my 4 year old skinny pig Lennon. This morning I noticed the bottom half of his eye is a very bright red, blood colour. He has no other symptoms besides this. Eating tons, running around, not bothered in the slightest. He does have a brother that he lives with (Ono). They get along well...

    Mocha fell and broke tooth, hunched back?

    Hi, I know a vet is the best option and I'm going to take him however it's a bit of a wait (I've called all the vets and emergency vets in the area- there aren't a lot that treat exotics here) so I wanted to ask for help here in addition. My guinea pig jumped out of my brother's arms a few days...

    Accidentally kicked my guinea pig :(

    The kick was more of a forceful push, as I was getting up to get him and his brother some food (he got caught in my foot’s crossfire). He’s not fully grown yet, but he seems okay for the most part (no problems running around, wheeking, eating, etc.) I saw him breathing a little heavily, which...

    Concern about eye

    I just recently discovered today that my pet guinea pig's eye is cloudy with a possibly small sore on the corner of his eyeballs. It was completely fine yesterday, so finding him with his eye in this condition is really shocking. I've checked online and most answers say he has hay in his eye...

    Small cut on stomach?

    Hi, I took my boar to a "dating" session at a rescue yesterday. He spent about 15 minutes meeting this one boar until a fight broke out. They were separated a few seconds later. He then "dated" a 6 week old baby boar and they got along great. I adopted the baby and so far so good with them...

    Scabs and Sores

    Hello everyone, This is my first time posting in here because I’m beside myself. I have two male guinea pigs who have always been the best of friends. A little over a month ago I noticed a lot of scuffling and saw that my less dominant, younger guinea pig had an open sore. They were acting fine...

    Hi, I feel so quilty at the moment and really worried. I took my guinea pig out the cage and gave her some treats. When I put her back into her cage with the other guinea pigs she doesn't usually move much when she gets near the cage but tonight she decided to jump out my hands. About a foot...

    Hello! We have found one of our piggies (Doris) has a red ulcer type injury/growth on her eye. We found it last night and there is no other sign of an infection (no discharge or gunk and her eye is still the same colour. She's fine in herself but just wondering if anyone with more experience...

    Hay in back of eye?

    Today morning I saw my guinea pig had a small piece of hay in his eye and as I tried to get it out but it just seemed to have gone on further into it. When I look at it now there isn't any sign of it so I'm not really sure whether it fell off or not. He's not squinting or anything right now and...

    How often do you get hay pokes?

    I’ve just been to the vets with BB for a hay ‘poke’ - it was actually a bit of super soft hay lying under her bottom eyelid, so not really a ‘poke’ at all! which is the third time I’ve been for this sort of thing with my trio. The vet said I may want to re-think their bedding as I’ve had a lot...

    Is this a scratch or some kind of infection?

    So like a day ago I noticed what looked like dried poo on my guinea pigs nose. I tried to wipe it off but he kept moving and it wouldn't really come off. Today morning I saw that he had this red swipe above his nose. Could this be a scratch from maybe him trying to clean himself? the first...

    I was recently on vacation for 4 days and had my neighbours watching over my guinea pigs, but when I returned today there was a problem with one of my female guinea pigs.

    injury- help (should I take to the vet?)

    for the past couple of weeks, I've been introducing my new Skinny boy (few months old) to my one year old guinea pig. They've been housed separately but because they had previously been doing so well, I was actually considering housing them together in the next few weeks... That is until...
