    Advice please!

    Yesterday, my guinea pig Ted passed away after about a year of having him and we're not sure what to do with my other guinea pig Chester. We brought them on the 8th of August and Ted passed away on the 7th of July due to natural causes. We could either give Chester away yet that will make me...

    Bored, lonely guinea pig?

    I have a four year old guinea pig whose friend passed away about six months ago. My guinea pig didn't really care that her friend was gone, she was eating and drinking normally and she didn't gain or lose any weight. She didn't get depressed or anything like that. But lately i just don't know...

    Pig Died, One Left Behind

    i had two guinea pigs, not particularly old (around 2 years, just under) and 2 days ago found one of the boys dead. The day before he seemed perfectly happy and healthy, so I have no idea what happened. I now have one left, (his cage mate) who seems healthy and is eating and drinking fine since...

    Death And Lonely Pig

    I don't think I'm quite in the right category, I've never posted in anything like this before, I couldn't find a catagorey that quite fit. I just need to tell someone what happened and get some advice for my other pig. I'm sorry that this will be so long. My guinea pig Pumba died on Saturday. He...

    Lonely Guinea Pig

    As stated in a previous thread, I recently adopted 2 male guinea pigs however one managed to escape as I opened their hutch and ran away into my neighbours garden. I searched for over an hour and left a warm box with hay and food hoping he'd return but it's been almost 5 days and I'm beginning...

    Solo Guinea Pig Losing Weight

    Hello I'm wondering if anyone has any advice for us. We have a guinea pig who last month lost her partner in crime. Within two days of the loss she was prescribed Baytril for a believed issue with her bladder or uterus. Scans showed no stones or sludge. The Baytril (we believe) caused her to...

    Bereaved Question

    Hello all. New here. Yes, I read the above threads, but as you all know when this happens you still have to ask. So, we lost a pig yesterday. Truffles. He died very quickly, as did his brother (actual brother, from the same litter, who passed away about 4 months ago). They were bought from a...

    Miss You Already Anna

    I came home from university last night for my mum to tell me one of my gorgeous Guinea pigs has sadly passed away. She was only two and a half years old but she meant so much to me and she really was such a gorgeous pig inside and out. I am left with my other very special piggy, Anna's sister...

    Very Sad News, I Need Help On What To Do Next.

    So after just a week of owner the beautiful happy guinea pig Brownie I found her dead this morning. I think her sudden death is because of her previous home. I think in her old home she and her friend were neglected, they didn't have toys, they had no hay, and no veg apart from a full carrot cut...

    I Have One Male And I Think He Is Lonely :(

    I adopted my male guinea pig from the adoption centre at pets at home and I want to find him a friend, but obviously being a male there is a large chance of fighting if I got another male, I've thought of neutering him and getting a female, but he is only around 1 year old so I don't think that...
