    Guineapig Whistling noise - is it a cause for concern?

    Hi, Just wanted to see if anyone has had their geauinpig whistling. - It's definitely nasal but the vet said he was fine after all the checks, he's eating and drinking fine, no discharge around the nose, but even with antibiotics we can't get rid of it. Anyone experience it before?

    Guinea pigs and barking dogs

    My twin and I just got two new guinea pigs. We thought we did all the research necessary on what they need and how they would react around the dogs. The thing we missed though is that the dog's barking can stress them to death. My dog met the guineas and wants nothing more than to sniff her butt...

    I only got my Henry two days ago, and this is his first day really leaving the cage - he's currently under my shirt, getting pet through the fabric.... And he's letting out this trilling noise. It sounds basically exactly like a tribble, but I can't find much on what it might mean. I think it...

    My Piggy Is Making A Strange 'popping' Noise

    Hello! I am in quite a panic at the moment. My piggy Asterix has always had problems with his voice - he can squeak but for the most part he seems to grunt.
