    Strange Reddish Sticky P

    I've just gone to say goodnight to my piggies and noticed a couple of tiny blobs of reddish sticky goo stuck to the fleece. It seems to have become harder/stickier as it dries. It *could* have come from the pieces of bell pepper, but there's no food (or evidence that they've bern eating it)...

    Help- Freaking Out!

    Just returned home to find both piggies fine but the poos (I suspect coming from Mo though most of them are like it so could also be Steve) almost purple? They haven't had beetroot but did have a mixed salad the smorning of red lettuce and normal lettuce leaves- it's not red? And there's a...

    Impaction - Huge Poop Passed

    About 2 days ago I noticed my guinea pig Bruce was pooping less, and the poops he was passing were tiny. I thought it was just a diet thing as he didn’t seem to be in any pain or anything, was still eating plenty of hay and drinking water, though I did notice he was eating less pellets. However...

    Eating Each Others Poo!

    Hi, so I have three 3 y/o piggies - Cherry, Clover and Hazel. Cherry keeps harassing Hazel for her poo, I've read they sometimes eat poo from healthy pigs if they're not well, but Cherry seems fine other than this. Do I need to take her to the vet? P.S. I'm not really bothered she's eating...

    Mo Health (another Poo Thread)

    White Stuff On The Poop?

    Hello, for a few days I have been noticing that Medi occasionally wheeks a little when she poops. She doesn´t do it all the time but when she does, there is a white stuff on the poop. I wasn´t worried about it at first as I thought it might be excess calcium. However, she seems to have hard time...

    Peeing And Staying Outside During Winter

    Hello, my Piggy is 2months old (and he's single for now, hopefully we'll get him a companion soon). Since we live in a building, unfortunately we can't take him outside but we give him some floor time on balcony where he runs around and hides. His cage is also on the balcony and there weren't...

    Smelly Poops

    I have two guinea pigs and even though they eat the same food, one of them has a really bad smeling poops. It smells like vinegar or something acidic...(cat poo smells like roses compared to that). They are on fleece and everything is going great, but the smell from the poops is filling up the...

    Steve Ill?

    Sorry I hope it's just nothing... I mean everything seems fine. Steve is eating,drinking,squeaking,popcorning- I actually just had them on the lawn for about 20/30 minutes and yep fine. However on taking their tube back upstairs (Mo did not enter it at all because I was watching them so it's...

    Piggy Isn't Pooping

    Hi everyone. So a couple of days ago I noticed one of my pigs didn't want to come down for greens. She's normally waiting at her bowl about a half an our before greens time, so this was weird. I had to pick her up and move her to her food bowl. Once she was there, she ate fine. At this point she...

    Mo Toileting

    So hi guys yet again on the subject of Mo's bowels. Before I share my worries I just want to point out that Mo is eating well,par his hay which he is still eating but not as vigorously and his teeth are pristine. His hair bounces back,he's alert and chews bars for food. No hunched posture though...

    Piggy Poo

    So I've asked before but a picture might be clearer and help others who are still a little confused. I understand the whole size range thing and that a healthy guinea pig poo should be a smooth shape that it is firm enough but not hard and soft enough but not watery. Haha so this isn't really an...

    Small Poos

    I've had a read on here and I've seen that small poos can mean not enough food intake or a digestive problem... I'm not sure if it's coming from Beans or Toast but I'm inclined to say Beans because I found the poos in the house that 90% of the time it's only Beans who uses it. I always monitor...

    Hi! My lovely boy Ted had a bladder op 4 weeks ago. He had a very bad reaction to the op and nearly died... He stopped eating for ten days and was on constant hand feeding. Thankfully he has made a slow but good recovery. He's had lots of gut problems such as runny poos and his poo hasnt...

    Update On Ben, Possible Bladder Problems (sorry Long Post)

    Some of you have been helping me with my thread last week about Ben's breathing here. Kind of keeping this as a sort of log for the past week... He's been having baytril, metacam, vit c supplements, probiotic and critical care recovery food. He was 1.2kg before and hit a low of 1.09 when the...
