    Help! - New Sound After Separation

    I'm really scared! We recently separated Optimus and Witwicky and it's night and he's making a really worrying noise. It sounds like he's about to chirp but he can't and now he's stopped... they have had some recent health problems so I hope he's not in pain! Any ideas ;(

    Weird Noise.. Could It Be A Cold?

    Hey everyone, Happy October! So recently I have recovered from a head cold, and I was told a long time ago that guinea pigs can get colds from us. Is that true? The reason I ask is because one of my pigs has started making a weird noise when she eats and she is sneezing twice a day...

    My Pig Is Making Strange Noises?

    Hello everybody, let me first say; I'm a new owner. I've never had Guinea pigs before in my life until this past December.

    Were They...chirping?!

    SOOOOOO. Few minutes ago, my mum and I heard this weird, weird noise. It was really quite loud, like a CHEE-CHEE-CHEE-CHEE-CHEE. And I thought, is it someone playing silly beggars, or a weird bird outside practising karaoke? So I got up, and when I went near the piggy room it sounded louder, but...

    Strange Noise

    my Guinea pig every now and then is making this weird noise which sounds like a sort of sneeze/cough and I don't know what it means if it's any help I just gave him a bath to clean his grease gland so I don't know if it could be something to do with that. Again it sounds like a coughing sneeze ...

    Confusing Symptoms - Blocked Nose And Hooting Sort Of Chirp

    i have recently been worried about my 1 year old Guinea pig Morgan. 2 weeks ago he started hooting and sniffling a lot and after research took him to the vets to check for an URI. The vet (a cavy specialist) couldn't hear anything wrong but just incase put him on antibiotics for 5 days. When I...
