    Is he a satin? Does he have osteodystrophy?

    My little Bilbo (male) has started having trouble with one of his back legs. He is walking abnormaly and hopping around. When he is laying down, he lift his leg. It doesn't appear to be broken.

    Hurt leg but no visual wound

    My guinea pig Lion has a hurt leg. I was getting ready to do the nightly feeding and I noticed that Lion was staying in his little hutch instead of running towards me like he usually does.

    Hurt Leg :(

    My youngest guinea pig seemed to have hurt his front leg. I tried looking at it and it doesn't look swollen or have any scratches, but he keeps holding it when he walks. I'm pretty sure my oldest guinea pig did it to him (they are only a month apart but my youngest is the runt of the group). He...

    At Home Care For Pig With Nerve Injury In Leg

    One of our piggies was injured after our dog jumped into their cage. Both piggies were traumatized. The emergency vet hospital saved Lulu Belle's life, but she has some nerve damage to her back left leg. Her foot turns downward so she really struggles to move around. No broken bones or spinal...
