    Dry skin or fungal

    Hi, I got my skinny pig 2 days ago and noticed her skin has dry patches. I'm worried that it's ringworm so have been washing my hands and haven't introduced her to my other 2 yet. Sorry the photos aren't great, she's very nervous. Does this look like it could be fungal? She had little...

    Geezer is having the worst year (I just need to vent, sorry)

    Hi everyone, I can't believe the bad luck with this piggy! We've been battling bladder stones and sludge since february almost non-stop, at least it appears that last friday he peed out the last sliver that was causing him bloody pee (x-ray shows no more stones or sludge). So a huge thank you...

    Possible fungal infection: care over bank holiday?

    Hi hope you can help. I'm going to try to get to a vet tomorrow but am aware it's a bank holiday weekend and if we can't get an appointment until next week we might need to do some intervention sooner... one of our 8 month old girls has a pale patch on her nose that looks from googling like it...

    Please be kind as I suffer with generalised anxiety disorder and I know I panic too much but I need advice

    Hi everyone, I hope this post doesn't come across as too stupid and if it does, please be kind. I bought two guinea pig over 2 weeks ago, and I didn't realise that they had ringworm. I took them to the vet because I'm new to keeping guinea pigs as an adult so I'm not too experienced in this...

    Will antifungal bathes be enough without oral meds?

    Hi all, One of my girls was just diagnosed at vets with a decent case of ringworm. She doesnt seem to have missing fur yet just crust around nose. Her cagemate isnt affected much, just a few spores. He prescribed Melaseb for them both to be bathed in once a week for a month. He didnt want to...

    Crusty spot on Guinea pig bum

    My new baby I have had for a week has a crusty spot near her genitals and nowhere else on her body. I’m wondering if it is just a dry skin patch that will resolve on its own, cause I’ve never seen ringworm on genitals. The spot is right on her tailbone area. There is no inflammation present. She...

    So Ive recently introduced a new baby pig to my two other piggies. The baby got a dry bald patch near its head which I think is ringworm and I don’t know what to do. I’ve separated my Guinea pigs for now but they’ve already been exposed. How long should I continue quarantining them? How long...

    Baby pigs with bald patches

    Hi there I rehomed 2 baby sows yesterday afternoon. 8.5 weeks. When I collected the lady said that they were born with cradle cap. She had given to Pets At Home for advice (sigh) and they advised to treat with coconut oil 3 times a day. She said it had cleared considerably since then. I have...

    Crusty Eyelid?

    Hi, today I realized that the left eyelid of one of my guinea pig babies looks kind of swollen and crusty, but we aren’t sure what the cause might be. He doesn’t seem to have any problems with it, but it definitely looks like something is wrong. Otherwise, he is very healthy, eats and poops...

    Imaverol Help

    Hi. So my two guinea pigs have got ringworm. If I used imaverol every 3 days do I still need to apply cream etc? I've read the thread on ringworm but I can't get the oral medication from my vets, they don't tend to offer it. How do you wash them with imaverol properly without getting it in...
