    Troubles going to the bathroom

    My little boy Oswald is having discomfort peeing and pooping. He is 2 years old and recently (about 2 weeks ago) got off of antibiotics for a URI. He had issues going to the bathroom while on the antibiotics but he was on Natural Science Digestive Support (and still is) and that really helped...

    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...

    Persistent Soft Poop/Stool! Help!

    Hi! I have two boars. Patches and Carmal. I posted another thread about this, but it has not gotten better. I’m really worried. I live in the US, so I would not be able to get fibreplex. He does not have diarrhea but both of their poops are soft. I have not taken them to the vet, since my...

    Light Colored Poop?

    I noticed that there are lighter poops in the cage that are more of a khaki/tan color and are the same normal consistency and aren't slimy. Usually, their poops are "normal" and I haven't changed their diet. What could cause this change, and more importantly, is it a sign of illness?

    **Tiny poops (1/5 size as usual)**

    I am going to get the girls into an exotic vet tomorrow asap (it's about 1am here), but in the meantime I need some advice! I'm getting so worried I'm wondering if I should stay up all night with them. Tonight I realised that my girl Lup has been doing poops all day that are tiny, about 1/4 or...

    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...

    Do Not Use “Nu-Stock” ointment!

    About a month and a half ago, one of my three piggies (Buffy) got ringworm. A family member of mine told me she used a product called “Nu-Stock” animal ointment on her dog when she had ringworm and it went away. I did a lot of research on it, but found no information about it specifically...

    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...

    Sort Of Odd/silly Health Questions From A Newbie Piggie Owner

    So I've bought two piggies from a pet store (no adoption agencies around me as far as I know), and while they seem happy, I wanted to ask 2 things about their health. First question: how often do piggies sneeze typically? my piggies have been sneezing a bit more then I'd expect. I have them in...

    Poops Sticking To Fleece

I originally used fleece bedding but it was too difficult to clean the cage because the poop and hay kept sticking to the fleece.I had to switch over to paper bedding but now i want to give fleece another shot. I created a kitchen area so the hay...

    Oddly Shaped Poops

    Hello there, My 2 year old guinea pig Boba has had increasingly odd shaped poops for the past few weeks (see images below - they are the ones that are odd, the normal ones are her sister's poops). I have honestly not noticed one single normal looking poop since last week. She is still eating...

    Poop Coming Through C&c Grids - Solved

    Here the problem: the boys' cage is up against a wall and they push their poop out through the c&c grids and it becomes trapped between the skirting boards and the side of their pen which is a pain to clean. The solution: cot bumpers from Aldi! Let me first off make it clear that cot bumpers...

    Possibly Impacted? Help!

    Hi Everyone! I noticed a huge ball of poop half way through Streakys bum on Sunday. I managed to get it out gently with some gloves. He’s a 4 and a half year old boy. I searched on the forum about what it could be and it seems like it could be impaction. It’s happened again tonight as well I’m...

    Weird Poops Are Regular?

    I have a guinea pig who has only recently begun eating again after a long period of force-fed critical care. He is off the veggies, so that is not the problem. His poops are wet-ish and clumpy, stinky, and cover is hind feet in smelly feces. Would it be the critical care doing it's work, or is...

    Strange Poop After Bloat/colic

    Hi all, A few days ago my piggie Chewy stopped eating and was super lethargic, and I noticed he was pooping very infrequently but when he did it looked normal. I took him to the vet and she said he had colic/bloat, so now he has been on Metoclopramide (for gut peristalsis), Metacam (for pain)...

    Can Someone Explain Force Feeding?

    I'm really stressed about feeding my girl CC. She will eat it fairly well for about the first 5-6 cc. Then she will refuse more. Twisting away and stuff. This makes me feel like I am forcing in more than her tummy can take if I try to feed her more. She is eating and drinking a little on her...

Last year, I was planning on buying one and did a lot of research, however since it was a very busy year, I decided to postpone getting a piggy.

    How Do I Care For My Bloat Survivor? I'm A Bit Scared..!

    River was rushed to the out of hours vet last night with severe bloat. After several hours of waiting to be seen, she was eventually put in an oxygen tank and treated via drip. She has perked up considerably, has started pooping again and has been munching away happily. The vet had fed her on...
