I can’t tell if it’s on the skin of the eyelid or just crustiness but the lid is also a little swollen. With the...

    Please help!😭

    Coco is ill. I’m heartbroken, none of my vets in my area are open and I really don’t think he’s gonna make it. He’s breathing strange, he’s only eating hay and even so he’s not eating much, he’s not drinking at all and he’s struggling to move. If anyone has an idea what it could be please offer...

    Guinea Pig Skin Issue

    A few days ago, we noticed this bald patch appear on our guinea’s back. Upon closer look there appears to be dandruff as well. He has no other symptoms or patches like this. Although he does occasionally try to scratch it. What could this be?

    My grandma got really sick after helping clean my guinea pig room.

    She’s been throwing up and had diarrhea. We had to take her to the hospital. Is it possible that this could’ve caused it? Being around Guinea pigs, cleaning up hay. Maybe the Guinea pigs themselves or their mess? I didn’t want her to do it, but she did it while I was at work so I couldn’t say...

    HELP! My pig is hooting!

    Hello! My boy Pip has started making hooting noises! Since last night, he has not moved very far from his little house. I would say Pip is a little bit of an over achiever when it comes to his day to day life so I am very worried for him. He will not eat his favorite hay, nor will he drink...

    PLEASE HELP - Crusty Eye

    At first it was just little white flakes that would go away, assuming she cleaned them off herself. Now it’s gotten this bad in the span of 3-4 days. It’s only in her left eye, and my other piggy doesnt have it. She also hasnt been eating as many pellets as before. Her and her sister would...
