    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 great aunt passed away after quite a tough weeks weeks. She was like a nanny to me as all my grandparents are unfortunately long gone. The last few...

    Urgent - Please Help Bear

    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...

    Sanctuary Peeeegs

    Many piggies :D Toffee and Fudge were surrendered to my work place, and because Toffee has lots of unusual cysts and both ladies are elderly they are now permanent Sanctuary residents! Toffee is left and sister Fudge is right. The mysterious stretch-pig! Kissy kissy! And little Jakob! Such a...

    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...

    Weekly Feeding Plan Rotation

    As someone looking forward to becoming an owner (of one guinea pig), I'd first like to get approval over my planned guinea pig diet. I referred to the following link: https://www.guineapigcages.com/food/Veggie-and-Fruit-Charts.pdf. *1/8-1/4 cup of pellets would be given in the morning and...

    Is It Possible That My Piggy Is Still Sick?

    Okay, so 3 weeks ago my sister and I had bought two guinea pigs, Fred and George. George was more than likely sick when we had gotten him, but we were told vitamin C drops would do the trick. NOPE. Poor little George had a pretty strong case of an upper respiratory infection, and without further...

    Diy Cage Interior.

    My little man is as odd as they come. When I bought him, I got the largest cage in the shop and every toy/feeder/bedding you can imagine... none of them lasted, he hated them all! So I had to get my thinking cap on and figure out some alternatives! With a little rummaging around the house I...

    Sneezing Pig Normal?

    I was out in the run earlier holding Chanel, my long haired pig. She sneezed twice in about 10 minutes. I can't see any snot/ other signs. She is only 4 months. As she is long haired her bum gets wet with her urine so I'm wondering if this could have caused it? Or is it normal for a pig to...

    Weigh Day.

    I told the girls that it was weigh-time and afterwards they'd get some veggies - they ran for cover. As soon as they realised the scale's batteries were flat, they came out wheaking for the promised veg! So no weights this week. Chewie is definitly growing (or just getting fatter?) - their...
