    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...

    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...

    Fungal? Pus? Strange White Lumpy Matter? Please Help

    Hello again guys, I have discovered yet another problem with one of my girls this morning. 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? It's in a strip down her nose and looks like lots of tiny white eggs or...

    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...

    I Spy A Chooken, A Nose And Some Pretty Colours!

    the girls and I tried out brushing this evening. I think they aren't quite sure what to think of it - there were little chirps and lots of stillness!
