    Growth on nose

    Hi, I have 2 male Guinea Pig’s, they are both 2 years old. I noticed a couple of weeks back they both had a dry bit on their nose - didn’t seem to be bothering them so didn’t worry. Over the last couple of days I’ve noticed one of the Guinea pigs growth has grown a lot and this morning he...

    Nose Troubles [Picture Attached]

    White spot on guinea pigs nose

    Hi, whilst holding Oreo today (about 20 mins ago!) I found a weird spot on her nose. Its white and feels solid, she doesn’t seem in pain when I touch it. I haven’t noticed it before and hold her everyday, so I think it’s appeared very recently. She’s otherwise her normal self, eating and...

    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...

    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...

    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...
