    Has anyone had parasites- Klossiella?

    So long story short I have had 9 of my pigs die since December. I spent $2000 at the vet trying to figure it out and finally we have answers. Not 100% but based on what they found in the tissue the vet is assuming this is all it is- They found necrotising hepatitis in his adrenal gland...

    Losing weight, but no other symptoms.

    Hi everyone, My 3 & 1/2 year old guinea pig Gretchen is usually around 1-1.1kg (she’s usually a curvy girl), but about 2 months ago she had dropped down to 870g. So I took her to the vets, who weren’t too worried as she’s still bright, alert, moving, eating, drinking, peeing, pooping, good coat...

    Lice help?

    Hiya, Unfortunately I'm back with more (different) skin issues. I noticed some tiny white worm-looking things moving in my guineas fur - I think they're lice, but will get them checked by a vet to be sure and get treatment for them. I have noticed them scratching a bit, but no...

    Guinea Pigs Have Lice?

    I noticed today that my 2 male guinea pigs seem to be very irritable and itching themselves much more than usual. When I tried to pick them up they chittered angrily and did not want to be picked up. After I wrangled one, I looked at his fur an noticed there were moving parasites on his back...

    Bald spot?!

    I’ve noticed my 5 year old boar has got a bald spot on his bum. We’ve previously had problems with lice so I immediately thought he had got them again or maybe had mites so he’s been through a treatment of ivermectin and I’ve washed him with georgeous guineas lice shampoo but it’s still there...

    Hair Loss, Flaky Scabby Skin. Help:(

    hi there! I have an elderly Pig at 7 years old and she has been the happiest, healthiest pig ever until recently. I noticed that on her neck and stomach area she has lost a lot of hair over time it hasn't been drastically and I'm wondering why? :( Someone suggested that it could be dental...

    Not Malocclusion But Refusing To Eat, Dropping Food, Drooling And Diarrhea

    Hi, my girlfriend and I are rather desperate with our 2.5-year-old Monty, who's been feeling unwell for the past 2-3 months. Right now he's only eating very little (having lost almost 100g in the past week), we have to force-feed him instant hay (RodiCare) and hand-feed him vegetables and fruit...

    Excessive Biting/scratching- Possible Parasite.

    I've noticed for about a week now Beans has green/yellow marks at her bum from her using her mouth to scratch (it's very obvious as she's mostly all white) I wasn't too worried because she wasn't obsessively scratching it was just occasional. But I've noticed today she's really pulling hard at...

    Lice Treatment Working Or... Not?

    Hello! I recently posted about my two girls and discovered that they have lice. They have seen a vet who couldn't find any lice but I was sure I had seen a couple so they both had a shot of ivermectin and he said to return in one week. That was on Saturday and my girls seem to be even more...
