    Boars Acting Slightly Uneasy Towards Eachother

    Hey, everyone! I think it was around a month ago I bonded my boars. Since the last time I've posted here, I've expanded my cage a lot. Now it is 16 square feet, (or imagine a 4x2 connected to a 2x3 but more space because no closing). They've been really happy in it, they have 3 hideys, a hay...

    Whisker Trim?

    Hi everybody, I have a coronet and I feel like his whiskers are incredibly long. Is it okay to trim them? Sorry if this is a dumb question I’ve just never had a long haired pig before.

    Not Eating Hay Or Drinking Water?

    Hi! I'm a New Guinea pig owner. He's about two months and his name is Pumpkin. He was doing well the first month I had him (got him when he was 1 month old) and was popcorning, wheeking, and exploring. But now going into the second month I noticed he's not being so active. Is he bored? Should I...

    Genuinely Nice Surprise

    Went to Pets@Home today to get another 1kg bag (I think lol its the biggest one they do) of Timothy hay. I know it's not the best value for money (actually think they messed up as the sign said £6.99 and I paid £4 something :whistle:) but Mo loves it and Steve has been on it since I got him...

    Guinea Pig Therapy

    I've been a piggy mammy for less than two months. But already I can understand why people love them so. I had a death in my family two days ago.

    My guinea pig's name is Bear, and he's maybe around 8 months to a year old. He's always been really happy and energetic but recently has been really itchy and lethargic. We took him the pet store and they said he said fruit and sugar allegies, but we'd never had issues with his food or what we...

    Wish Them Luck!

    Now that Darwin and Jake are well settled and lice free, it's time to see if they want to be friends! Things have been going well, they have even snoozed together! Both boys came from homes where they lived alone so I really hope they get on. Wish the boys luck!

    Are These The Same Pigs?

    Do you think these are the same pigs? The cage is the same with the ill-fitting door, they're in the same location, one of both 'pairs' has died and they are incredibly similar if not the same, both 'pairs' are boars. The angle makes it difficult though...

    Is My Piggie Sick (allergy Or Uri?)

    Hi, I'm from the USA. My husband and I just bought two baby piggies from Petsmart (and now I know not to ever do that again because they may have come from a supplier that mistreats the animals). One of them has a little crust around her nose, and every once and a while she will let out a...
