    Liquid from nose

    Hi. Basically, yesterday I noticed for the first time that one of my guinea pig's (Pumpkin) nostril (just one I am pretty sure) had this white mucus-looking liquid inside. It would appear in her nostril every time she breathed out, and a little crust of it seemed to be on the outside. I kept an...

    Fungal?

    We got Jimmy out tonight and have found what appears to be something fungal on his nose/mouth. It’s come on since last night as that’s when I last saw him up close, so it’s come on quite quickly. I’ll be emailing the vets a photo to take a look at but as it’s night time here in the UK, I was...

    Weird Nose Fungus?

    My guinea pig teddy has had many small minor issues and this is another, he has some sort of fungus looking substance on his nose. I haven’t tried picking at it because I imagine that’s probably not going to do any good. I have attached a picture or two if anyone could help that would be great...

    Nose looks blocked?

    I came home today and I noticed that there seemed to be something one of my piggie's nostrils? It looks like a white liquid, and then the whole nostril looks blocked. It looks pretty wet too but nothing's actually falling out of her nose. Her and her sister have been sneezing but I've heard...

    Looks wet inside nose?

    Hi! So a few days ago I noticed both my guinea pigs’ noses seemed to have a clear glossy liquid in the nostrils. It went away for a few days, but I notice it again today in one of them. I heard that URI fluid is greenish/yellowish, so I’m guessing and hoping that this isn’t serious? I tried to...

    Hello everyone! I'm so glad that I found this site... Its 4 am here and I noticed my guinea pig has red Mark's on her nose. She had a weird crusty nose a few days ago and I put some fungus cream on it because other owners told me she had a fungal infection. I bought her from petsmart and ever...

    Crust on guinea pig's snout

    My guinea pig Mickey has been developing a crusty spot on the end of his nose. It's not around his nostrils so I don't think it's anything to do with a runny nose. I thought he might have gotten something on the end of his nose that dried up, but when rubbed with a wet cloth, nothing came off...

    Possible URI Symptoms?

    How can you tell if your guinea pig has a respiratory infection? My boy has some yellow/green dried up snot on his left nostril (never the right one). He also has a cut under his left nostril by his lip that looks a bit swollen, I’m not sure how it happened but it appeared yesterday morning...

    Black Scab Around Nostril

    My boy Noodle has recently developed a black scab-like patch around his nostril. He’s had a small black spot there for a long time, but it didn’t suggest any cause for concern. Recently (within the last week) he’s got this big scabby area. It doesn’t appear to be ringworm as the rest of his coat...

    Constant Scrapping

    I have two 6 month old boars, tonight the fighting hit an all time high when one of them came away dripping blood from where he had been bitten on his nose and mouth, he already had a chunk missing from his ear and multiple cuts on his nose but tonight was the worst it’s been since the ear which...

    Pig Making Crackling Noises

    Hello all! Sorry for the late night post but I'm desperate for some advice. My pig has been making strange noises when she breathes, I can only describe the sound as sort of like a duck! I've taken her to the vets who have listened to her chest and said it's all clear, and she's completely...

    Nasal Issues

    The backstory: I bought my two guinea pigs from Pets at Home (due to lack of better knowledge at the time). Unsurprisingly, they are victims of bad breeding. They are now 5 years old but in very good shape for their age, not yet showing signs of aging at all. Due to the bad breeding, Loki's...

    Urgent - Guinea Pig Nose Does Not Look Okay

    My male 7 months old guinea pig, Chubby, is the cutest thing that has ever happened to me. He has been fine and healthy, and he still seems very fine and healthy and happy. He likes the sounds he hears all the time, including bells, which never fail to make him purr. I signed up here and am...

Bear has a strange lumpy white/green matter above her nose which doesn't wipe off and I'm suspecting some sort of fungal infection?

    Crusty/scabby Nose

    Hi, my male guinea pig has this on his nose it looks like a big scab but it's solid and seems to be quite deep in him. I thought he had had a fight with another one of our guinea pigs and had gotten it from that but I don't think it's the case anymore. Is this something we should be worried...
