    Senior Piggy Face Abcess

    Hello, I'm new here and understand that this forum isn't a substitute for legitimate veterinary care, but my situation is somewhat unique and I could use whatever advice you may have to offer. I should start by saying that my 6 year old male guinea pig, Snickers, is not well socialized...

    Happy five years!

    I got to celebrate my five year gotcha day with Elevensies last week. I got her from a shelter where the staff told me she was about three at the time, so I can only guess at how old this queen is. I feel so blessed every day we get to spend together. Five years ago she didn’t like any people...

    Elderly pig needs a dental procedure

    Hi, I have a 7 year old boar who needs a dental procedure. He chipped his tooth in March and our cavy savvy vet recommended that we wait and see how it grew back as my guinea pig was eating, drinking, pottying, and acting normally. It initially grew back fine and he didn't lose any weight or...

    Senior cavy and floor time

    Hello! I'm feeling a bit stuck with my 5 year old guinea pig penny. Shes in her senior years and in the past year she slowly began to dislike floor time more and more. I used to take her out, set up a bunch of two ended hides in her play pen, and place different veggies all over for her to go and...
  8. Pearl and Zip


    Is she okay? Her weight went from 1126g to 1151g in one day. She has weighed this weight before, so the weight should be normal for her, I’m just worried about the sudden change. She is four years and four months. Her fur is slightly fluffed sometimes. She is reaaaally fat. She’s kind of...
