    Boar losing weight and lump after neutering

    Hello, I have 4 year old boar piggy Harold who’s been losing weight over the past month or so. I may be over worrying a bit too much but any opinions or thoughts would really help me try and figure out what may be happening or reassure. So just a bit of background context, Harold’s gone through...

    Overnight neuter procedure

    Hi everyone, My male piggie is due to be neutered this coming week and the vet had recommended he spend the night at their practice. However, when I asked if there is anyone there at night she said no which made me a little anxious because this means that from 9pm-6am there will be nobody...

    Neuter and cage mates

    Hi everyone! Our young boar is due to be neutered next week. I was wondering if he can be returned to the same cage as our two females (the two girls are spayed) immediately or if I should give it some time? Thank you all

    Coping until boar is neutered and can live with sows

    I just brought home a baby boar (8 weeks) to eventually live with my 2 happily bonded sows (4 months and 3 months). He is living in an "apartment" next to their cage. They are showing great signs of liking each other (visiting, grooming, and "kissing" through the bars). The boar (Edward) cries...

    A miracle conception?!

    Hi there, first time poster, long time Guinea Pig Mum. This is an interesting story so strap yourselves in for a bit of a ride... The past couple of weeks I had noticed in my female Guinea pig (Honey) a lump had formed in her stomach and was sticking out from her side. Unfortunately my car was...

    Hello everyone! I have a guinea pig who had been neutered nearly two weeks ago. His recovery, unfortunately, hasn’t been smooth. He had hospitalized and is finally home and on critical care. I just had the pleasure of fishing out a sperm rod with my bare hands. (Neither of us enjoyed that!)...

    Should I get a neutered boar for my group?

    First I would like to apologize if I put this in the wrong section of ¨daily care and travel¨ so please forgive me if I got that wrong. Our piggies will be getting a new cage this year! Therefore they will all live together instead of separately (we still let them have floor time together)...

    Boar bleeding after sterilization?

    Hi, I looked this up but couldn't find anything like that on the forum. I'm kinda freaking out, let me get right into it. We got one of my boys (a few months shy from being 1 and a half years old) neutered today. Everything's good and we trust our vet. We hand-fed him for a while. It's been...

    Neutered Piggy Not Acting Normal

    This past Monday my little guy got neutered. The vet told me he'd be okay in about a week, but I've begun to worry about him. Out of my two, he is my most active, vocal, and friendly. I have seen him eat, so to say he's not eating would be a little far fetched. He eats his vitamin c tablet in...

    I'm thinking about having my 7 month old boar neutered as I would would like him to be with a pair of females in the future. 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...

    Neutered Dad with Newborn Baby

    Is it okay to have a neutered boar in the same cage with a sow and her 3 week old baby girl? (and another sow who’s their other daughter). I’ve seen that the males shouldn’t be with the babies when the mom is around at first or at all, is that still true if he’s neutered? I had him in the cage...

    Boar Not Recovering Well Post Neutering

    Hi there, My boar Spike is not recovering well post op, he’s just sitting there and barely eating anything. I’m feeding him critical care (started today), and he’s been back to the vet, who gave him pain killer and antibiotics as well as fluids. He’s seeing and pooping a little bit now. He is on...

    Guinea Pig Post Op - What Is Normal?

    Hello there, My boy, Fluff, was castrated yesterday poor thing. The vet said that everything went well and that he seemed to be recovering well. I am just a bit concerned as to what is normal behaviour after an op and also what is normal food consuption etc? I gave him some spinach leaves...

    Neutered Boar Chasing Sow.

    So! I recently got Banksy (the boar) and Ivy (sow) from a rescue. They've been cage mates for a year, and up until recently have got on like a house on fire, which is wonderful. Last night, Banksy would -not- give Ivy peace! He chased her around the enclosure endlessly, until Ivy hid away in a...

    Uti Guidance For My Boy Errol

    Hello! This is my first post! I am an RVN in the UK and recently one of my vets at work took a look at my piggie. He's lost 105g in 1 month, he has been 1.000kg for 2 years (give or take 20g!) and now he is 0.895kg. He has also been drinking a lot! My vet prescribed Septrin (trimethoprim...

    Secretion From Penis Post-neuter; Pus, Glue, Smegma, Sludgy Wee?

    Tubs was neutered on Saturday 26th November. While he was exclusively syringe-fed at first, he's recovering somewhat and eating hay, veggies and some pellets (he's losing 5-10g a day, but I'm keeping an eye on that and topping up with syringe feed where necessary). He's on loxicom for pain...

They have a run which is over 6ft and have a hutch against the run to go in for the daytime and They also have a shed with a stable door, which...
