    Guinea Pigs Legs Not Working

    I just took my guinea pig to the emergency vet because she was wobbling around yesterday and then was unable to move her legs this morning. She was eating and drinking well, however, she was diagnosed with GI stasis at the vet. Something that doesn’t make sense to my vet and I is that she was...

    Hello, one of my guinea pigs named Pou (1 year old) is currently making these deep oinking noises which are sometimes softer and then louder, I think the noise is coming from her throat. She stops making the noises when I carry her but continues in her cage. She is lightly wheezing from her nose...

    hiding too much?

    Hi! I’m a bit concerned about my piggies, I took them to the vet last week and they both had URI’s, I just finished both of their rounds of antibiotics yesterday. They’re both 3 months old and I just got them a couple weeks ago, but they seem to have regressed a bit with being scared. I had them...

    Black Mold Exposure?

    I had made another thread asking for help about some of the strange behaviors and symptoms I was seeing in my 2 boars the past few weeks, which goes a lot more in depth on everything that’s been going on. Since that thread, my quarterly inspection at my apartment done by maintenance found what...

Today though, both of her hind legs gave, and she's struggling so bad to even move. I can't go to the vet...

    Mass found in or around uterus

    Sunday morning (Oct. 9) I picked up my 4-year-old guinea pig, Rummy, to say good morning and noticed blood coming from her genital area. I called multiple ER vets as none near me treat guinea pigs or were even open. We drove an hour and a half to the nearest vet, with all three of our girls, and...

    Eye?

    Another thing on the new pigs I brought in yesterday. The younger one (and the bigger one) I noticed her eye is a bit droopy. I looked it up and it said it was normal but I am very worried about her.

    How much critical care to give.

    Evening fellow piggy parents, My little piggy has been off his food since this morning and his hay intake has also been low with him just picking a few bits. He’s been pretty quiet just sitting in the corner of his cage for the majority of the day so something definitely up. He’s off to the...

    Humming noise?

    My pig has been making a weird noise for 6 months now. It’s already been checked by a vet, and they said she was okay, and they didn’t really know why she was making that sound. I’ll provide a link to a video of her doing it. I’m wondering if anyone else’s pig does it. We were prescribed meds...
