    My piggy has been on antibiotics for 8 days now and her poops are being weird ever since. We've been feeding her probiotics and syringe feeding hay and pellets to her. No veggies. At first she was always hiding, maybe because of the antibiotic side effects but now she's coming outside and...

    Do I need a second opinion on Poppies eye?

    Hi! Last night I noticed my one year old female guinea was the slightest bit swollen and teary in one eye. Checked again in the morning and it was definitely a little more swollen but I wasn’t sure if it was serious or something that may pass. The vet I use is obviously operating differently...

    Nibs is sick, clearly. I’m just trying to find out what that sickness is. Usually he’s wheeking and one of the more lively and loud ones. He’s always had this airy squeak. Not quite a wheeze but it was his unique little squeak. Climbing on his house and being a curious boy. He houses with...

    Homemade Hay "Critical Care"

    Can I soak Timothy Hay in water and then blend that mix up in a blender with a little apple sauce or pellets for my guinea pig? The Critical Care is causing her poops to soften. The last thing we need is diarrhea.
