First post but I've found the advice on here really useful when building a home for our two pigs (6 months old).
Today when clipping nails we noticed that one had a broken nail and a worryingly dark toe (see picture below). No sign of any blood but it looks like she lost the nail a...
Hi! I just notices today that one of my piggies (7 months old) has nail growing slightly to the side, not excessive id say ab 5/10 degrees to the side. Its on the middle toe. The nail, toe and foot itself look perfectly healthy. Should i be concerned? x
A little background on the question - my guinea pig, Boba, used to live in a two story C&C cage with a little ramp about a year ago. One day I looked into his cage and noticed a fair amount of blood on his blankets. Obviously worried I pulled him out of the cage to find that one of his back...
Hope you could advise me.

Thanks in advance!

as a result he often goes a while...

Did them in reverse order if delinquency; Rey, Chewie then BB. The all sat on OH's lap, held sitting up by OH's be-gloved hands and let me snick-snick each...
Does anyone have any tips of advice for clipping front feet?
I find them really tricky with my wriggly pigs and they get stressed and we (I) get stressed and BB drew blood today :-( major ouch. Back feet are a breeze, helped along by the fact that they are so far away from the teeth!
