She was my best friend and i first got her at a very low point in my life, and having her helped me so much mentally, now...

    3mo piggy needs his eye removing?

    Hi everyone. I’m a new piggy owner and it’s my first post. I’ve had my two little piggies — Ginger and Snap — for about 2 weeks now. They’re both boys and I got them from a Pets at Home store when they were 11 weeks old. On day 2, I woke up and Ginger’s eye was suddenly red around the outside...

    Death of next door companion guinea pig

    Hello, I had to take the difficult decision to put my guinea pig Mucho to sleep yesterday. His health severely deteriorated in just 24h, he had no previous health issues. He was only a year and a half old, so very unexpected, and brought back the trauma of losing my first guinea pig when I was...

    Pts - Is It The Right Thing To Do?

    I have previously posted threads about my poor boy Gus. He's had a really tough time of it lately. First it was his poos; they were very small and tapered though he was eating normally at the time. He now has zantac syrup twice a day to keep them in check, and it has worked for the most part. He...
