    Can someone Give me Information?

    Hi, In the past 2-3 weeks I have been noticing some drastic weight loss in my Guinea pig. He was 1.2 now 0.78. I have took him to the vets but they haven’t been able to give any answers.

    Pain When Pooping :(

    Hi everyone. This is my first post so I’m hopefully doing this correct. I had two guinea babies, one sadly passed away from pneumonia/chest infection just over a month ago. Her sister, Poppy, has pretty much all her life had blood in her wee. She’s almost 4. This hasn’t been constant, but it...

    Ovarian Cancer

    My poorly Lilly pig is just shy of her 3rd birthday and has been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. I noticed blood in her urine, the only sign that anything was wrong. And with her cage mate not long having recovered from a UTI I took Lilly to the vets. I knew something was amiss as there was no...

    Would Be Really Thankful For Advice! :)

    Hi! I am completely new to forums and this is the first time I have ever posted a thread but I’m a little concerned about my piggie, Spice, a 7 month old Peru sow who is acting a little under the weather. I thought it’d be worth a shot to see if anyone has any advice/similar experiences. Spice...

    Unlucky Pigs Or Am I Doing Something Wrong?

    I feel like I have 2 very unlucky pigs and they just can't seem to catch a break. Over the past few weeks they've been through a lot. Toast has been on AB for a bladder infection and a URI. She's been on 2 different meds for bloat and after weeks of aggressive behaviour it was discovered she...

    Low Calcium Food Suggestions Please

    Hi everyone, One of our piggies has had blood in her urine for the last couple of days. We took her to the vets and he was fairly certain she had a UTI and she is now on Baytril antibiotics. If this doesn't clear it up, she will need blood tests, and if nothing shows up she'll need an x-ray...
