    My 5 year old guinea pig was put to sleep ..

    In June I found out my guinea pig Mickey had a tumor not knowing if it was possibly a cyst, I went to the vet and sadly told me that it was a tumor and there was no form of removing it without it growing back, this left me with knowing she was either going to live until she got to the point it...

    Poorly Piggy, Been Told To Prepare For The Worst :(

    Hi everyone. I took Poppy to the vets on Monday. When I took her the time before she weighed just over 1.3. She now weighs 1.02. She has lost quite a lot of weight. The blood is apparently coming out in her urine, not in her poop so apparently this is still cystitis and they think she is just...

    Guinea Pigs Seem Sad Since Moving To The Shed

    hi everyone, This is probably a silly question.. we moved our boys to the shed last weekend because of all that horrible rain and wind as our garden isn't very well protected from the elements! I've ordered a snugglesafe to keep them warm in the evenings and I'm going to dig out an old duvet...

    Sad For The Death Of A Young Pigeon

    It's 'only' a pigeon. But it's was beautiful and it's death was caused my house. It flew into one of my upstairs windows and I saw it fall past my living room window onto our front lawn. Made an almighty bang. I looked to see if it was ok and to begin with it looked like it was. It was 'sat'...

    Sudden Change In Behaviour...

    I think my piggies feel neglected :bye: I lost my job at Christmas and I think the piggies got used to me being around a lot. Now I'm back working full time they don't get as much attention. I feel like they hate me :( I still give them cuddles and veggies and lots of loves every day. I sit with...

    Mental Turmoil Of Having To Rehome?

    Hey all As some might know, my piggies had babies a few months ago and I misgendered one of the pups who's been in the girls cage. I don't have a big enough cage for 4 boars to live in. So, the people I got my original two are saying they can take a max of four back of the same sex. The...

    Infection Around The Nose

    Hello, at first my guina pig had a slightly wet nose, then it stared to look like a crusty nose, he had it before so I put some cream on it, the crust went away but now the skin around his nose is kind of dirty/crusty (not sure how to describe it). Anyone got an idea what could it be? thank you

    Is My Guinea Pig Heading To Rainbow Bridge?

    My female guinea pig bugsy (inspired from the Adam Sandler film bedtime stories) has been in my life for 6 years now, which I hear is really good because guinea pigs live for up to five years. We thought she would have passed away along time ago because she has this infected sore on her back...
