    Liquid from nose

    Hi. Basically, yesterday I noticed for the first time that one of my guinea pig's (Pumpkin) nostril (just one I am pretty sure) had this white mucus-looking liquid inside. It would appear in her nostril every time she breathed out, and a little crust of it seemed to be on the outside. I kept an...

    Hi! So let's get straight to the point, I'm really stressed. I have two guinea pigs, Popcorn and Pumpkin. Yesterday, I noticed Pumpkin was sneezing quite a bit. I wasn't monitoring too closely though, I just kept hearing her sneeze. It was usually one sneeze every time, but it was minimum 10...

    Good evening everyone! My name is Kris. I've got 3 beautiful female piggies, but my baby Oreo (I'm not quite sure of her age, but my guess would be about 3 months old) has been sneezing for exactly 22 days now.

She's currently lethargic, is sneezing more than usual, sometimes makes a crackling sound, and is breathing quite loudly every once in a while.

    Wart?

    I have three male guinea pigs that I am taking for a check up soon. My main worry was my youngest, Jinx. He’s been sneezing often and I’m worried he may have a cold, it being winter and all. Anyways, I was checking the boys for marks, behavior, etc, to bring up to the vet when I bring them in. I...

    Sneezing

    Hi I recently got a baby guinea pig from the RSPCA (born Oct 2018) and she has been sneezing since I got her. I've taken her to the guinea pig vet who suggested it was probably a viral infection as she is still well in herself, eating, drinking, running around normally etc and gave me some...

    What could be wrong with my Guinea Pig / What are signs of sawdust allergy?

    Hello, Ok so, um, where do I start? My guinea has been squeaking weirdly, like a wheek, but with a wheezy side. She keeps sneezing, but I haven’t noticed her nose running, or anything coming from her eyes, and I’ve checked her cage and there’s no diarrhoea from what I can see. It’s quite...

    Running nose and sneezing

    I lost a Guinea pig and it left my eldest Peaches alone. I decided she needs company and looked around for a guinea pig. I found a young Abyssinian girl and I fell in love! She was checked before I took her and she was clear. Once home I put her into my big indoor pen (can’t have guinea pigs...

    Sneezing?

    Everyday, I hear these little puffs of air coming from my piggie Ace (as if he’s blowing his nose!) I’m not too sure if it’s sneezing, but I presume so. Tonight when I refilled their hay rack, Ace rushed to it and started munching but shortly after, started sneezing. About 4-6 in a row! Ace will...

    Hi, so my 2 month old guinea pig has been sneezing alot, and was recently diagnosed with a bacterial infection.

    Sneezing/pneumonia/lousy vet

    So far I have spent nearly twelve hundred dollars at this vet's office trying to clear my two guinea pigs of what the vet said was streptoccal pneumonia. She also said the tests claimed the bacteria was tested not to be resisted to the antibiotics she gave me. After two rounds of antibiotics in...

    Hi everyone! So I have two guinea pigs: Cooper and Luna. Yesterday, I used hay as bedding and I immediately noticed that they started sneezing a lot after that and decided to remove it.
