    Bloat started again

    My piggy went to the vets 2 weeks ago for bloat, not pooping and low appetite, the exotic vet was fab and prescribed antibiotics, meds to help with the gut and paracetamol. He was responding really well and his pooping and eating was back to normal over Christmas until a few days ago. He’s...

    Poops

    Now I’m always going on about observing piggies poos as these are often the best insight into their health- now Steve’s has me baffled. So two days ago, he had the beginnings of another minor bloat episode (belly sounds like water balloon basically and he starts to sit around) I gave him his...

    Do I need a vet visit?

    New here so bear with! Have noticed my piggy is making some noise while she poops, not a really loud or high pitched squeal but more of a groan - similar to the noise she makes when my other pig is annoying her! The poops are the proper form and colour. Wee has some calcium deposits in it...

There’s also been some blood but I don’t know if I caused that by wiping her and trying to open her genital area up to see what was happening..it’s...

    Poop check pls

    My piggy has been on antibiotics for 8 days now and her poops are being weird ever since. We've been feeding her probiotics and syringe feeding hay and pellets to her. No veggies. At first she was always hiding, maybe because of the antibiotic side effects but now she's coming outside and...

    Different poop sizes?

    Good evening, I have three guinea pigs in the same cage and when I’ve been spot cleaning their cage, I notice small poops. Some a decent size smaller than the others. I do have an Abyssinian, and two Americans. While my Abyssinian is a bit smaller than the other two, I’m not sure if these...

    Constipation for female piggy

    Hi there! Just joined and I just adopted a friend for my girl Tulip, over a week ago, after she lost her bff a couple of months ago. I’ve named her new friend biscotti.

    I am currently attempting to make liquid fertilizer from my guinea pigs droppings and I was wondering if anyone has done anything similar to this and if so how did it turn out? At the moment I have placed about two days worth of poop from two guinea pigs into about 2-3 litres of water and it...

    Normal poop?

    Hello! Sorry if this is gross, but I am concerned. Is this poop normal? It is a little bit mushy, so we took him off of veggies for 24 hours to see if that helps. He is eating and drinking just fine, even active. I gave him bene-bac plus to help his gut and digestion.

    Questions After Vet Visit

    I've posted on here several times (so very sorry!) about having taken my girls to the vet on Monday, December 2 in large part due to the fact that the frequency of their poops had gone down significantly. They were prescribed Bactrim (SMZ-TMP) to take twice daily in case it was the start of an...

    Frequency of Poop; Medication Not Helping

    A couple weeks ago, I made a post detailing how both my girls' poop had become much lighter in color and was very dry even immediately after being dropped. On top of that, while they had been pooping, it was significantly less than I was used to seeing, especially first thing in the morning...

    Vet! One or both?

    Hi! I have two piggies (Patches and Carmal). My parents recently allowed me to bring them to the vet because of their persistent soft poops. However, they are worried about money. The last time I took Patches to the vet it cost a good bit of money. He had a mild infection, but is fine now. My...
