    Guinea Pig making grunting noise when passing cecotropes

    Pooing problems

    Dwight has had a rough 48 hours - we the morning before last that he hadn’t done a poo overnight, which was very very odd for him because he’s usually a greedy messy boy. After observing for a few hours, we noticed that he was quite tired and cuddly, whereas usually he’s feisty and doesn’t like...

    Does this look normal?

    One of my girls has a lighter brown poo color. They’re both eating, drinking, and acting normally. I’m just anxious and am wondering if this looks okay?

    Guinea pig poop smells really bad

    Hi, I have 2 guinea pigs. 1 is 2 years old and the other 24 weeks old. They have shared a 3 x 5 cage now for months. I had the 2 year old first and never had a problem with a smelly room or poop. Only when I got another guinea pig the smell has got really bad. That bad you can smell it as soon...

    No poops (but eating, drinking..)

    Hi all I posted last week Bloat - help! Jack has been up and down. Another trip to the exotic vet last night showed from x ray that his gas has massively improved and has literally gone, he also feels squishy. In himself he is also largely the same. He has really good days and poops loads and...

    Cannot get rid of soft poops

    Sorry in advance for the long post.. So for anyone that has been following Honey's experience of having a Spay, they will know that two days before her spay she got very soft poops, and this has continued still to this day (since the 15th September), various things along the way could have...

    my boy is stinky (he literally smells like poo) and needs a bath. How should I go about this?

    As in depth as possible, what's the best way to bathe a skittish guinea pig? Malcolm's a boar and he hasn't had a bath since he's been staying with me (his previous owner did a bath once a month). He smells like poo and I wanna hold/cuddle him without having to pull my face away all the time...

    Something large stuck in his bum

    I noticed that there was a pink patch on my piggies fleece and assumed it was my 4/5 year old boar as it was in his spot where he sleeps all the time. I googled and found that it could be blood in his urine or that his urine had just oxidated, I saw post saying I should put him on a white towel...

    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...

    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...
