    Blood in urine?

    I've spent many an hour reading posts on this forum over the years but my first post here! So hello all! Banjo has always loved drinking a lot of water and snacking on his biscuits/hay - he seems so happy when doing so, only the last few days perhaps a week I've been starting to wonder if he...

    * quick warning, i am not an expert in bladder stones, i am not a vet or doctor. I haven't looked at studies or read hundreds of articles, so this might be one big mistake * ... But i think this might be very useful to someone with a bladder stone pig. I came across this interesting video...

    Hello. I'm new here and I'm not sure how this works. But I have to write or I'm gonna explode. My guinea pig "Fandoq" ( which means hazelnut in English) died yesterday.

    Older piggie not feeling well/agitated with cage mate?

    Gizmo is my pig who I've had for the past 5 years. He has also lived with his cage mate Captain for that entire time. Until the past year Gizmo was always the very healthy one out of my pigs. He's the more dominant pig in the cage with Captain and they have had some small dominance battles in...

    Reoccurring Kidney Stones

    My Pig has reoccurring kidney stones that form every month. Two months ago he got a surgery to remove one, and last month he developed another one. My vet told me he didn't feel safe operating again, and that we had to decide between operating (Despite the risk) or putting him down. I decided to...

    Powdery Pee?

    I was just cleaning the pigs cage out (I have fleece) and noticed a few dots of white/cream "paste" is the only word I can use to describe it. I used my finger to see what it was, it was a very powdery consistency so I'm thinking maybe too much calcium in their diet? I can't think how.. They...

    Advice Needed - Bladder And Kidney Stone Pig

    My son has just taken his guinea to the vets, he's had an xray and they've found a stone in his kidney and two in his bladder (tiny ones). The vet said to stop his pellets, lower his veg intake and give him lots of hay (he has lots of hay anyway). She said to give him painkillers and baytril...
