    Neutering 2 Boars to put with 2 sows

    Me and my partner were wondering whether it would be possible to neuter our two boys (Captain and Jaffa) to be placed with our two females (Corky and Pickle). Or is it a definite no no for two males to be placed with females.. I hope someone can help us!

Does any one know much it costs and know of any information that may useful. Also, if anyone knows of any experienced vets in the West Midlands, particularly in or around...

    Should i introduce a know 'aggressive' piggie to the group

    Hi, So my little brother really wants a Guinea pig. Since i was already planning to get a third guinea pig i agreed to let him own my third one. All good right?

    Post-neuter Issues.

    I can't seem to see much on this kind of issue anywhere, a male after neuter leaking urine? I'm fairly certain that the vet who did the operation was pretty incompetent with piggies but unfortunately the piggy isn't in my ownership right now. I'm wondering what they messed up in there during...

    Sunny Is Getting The Snip

    Hey guys! The time has come to introduce my little man to a little woman, but not until he get's his 'business' removed. He's 8 months old, lively, good weight and we've bonded really well, so I'm hoping all will go well with his operation. This has to be done as he needs a little cage mate and...

    Horny Boar, Unable To Neuter, Needs Friend, What Do I Do?

    i don't know how much of this is relevant so I'm just going to tell you the whole story. I rescued a male piggy, unneutered, I wanted to get him a friend but I didn't know his age or health history and was reluctant to neuter because of this. I did some research and spoke to some rescues and...
