    Sneezing pig, should I change beddings?

    Hello! I’ve had my piggies for about 1,5 month, and they have been sneezing regularly during this time. Not really excessively but in total I hear them sneeze around 10 times a day (though this is combined, not per guinea pig). When this started I called the vet and they said it was most likely...

A few weeks later, we adopted a baby sow as a companion for our older sow, Nancy. We got the baby sow from a local rescue in Peterborough called PinnyGigs (which...

    Sneezing a LOT

    My piggy is 3 years old. She had pneumonia before a year ago. When she had it you could hear her breathing loudly. Her breathing sounds good and I can’t hear any rattling. She seems to go through cycles of sneezing more and then being normal or sneezing less. Her discharge is clear, if there’s...

    Sneezing and coughing

    Hi. My guinea pig Florrie started sneezing and coughing quite a bit last night. Originally I thought she was choking on a bit of food but she did this a few times when she wasn’t even eating. I was going to bring her to the vets this morning but she has since stopped sneezing or coughing. The...

    Why does My guinea pig have crusty eyes?

    Our eldest piggie Hazel has a little crust in one eye not too bad, just a little. She's never had this before so I thought that was weird, She's about 3 years old so I don't know if this is because she's aging. I also noticed that she sneezed a few times (which she always does), but she's still...

    I've just got back from seeing the vet because one of my boys (only 10 weeks) developed a runny nose (clear liquid) over the last week and the occasional sneeze.

    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...
