    Please Help, Guinea Pig Head Tilting!

    Hi, so my 2 month old guinea pig has been sneezing alot, and was recently diagnosed with a bacterial infection. The vet that I go to has run multiple tests, and so far her explanations of the tests have said that the bacteria is antibiotic resistant, but beyond that she has been very vague and...

    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...

    Guinea pig has been sneezing a lot.

    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.

    Sort Of Odd/silly Health Questions From A Newbie Piggie Owner

    So I've bought two piggies from a pet store (no adoption agencies around me as far as I know), and while they seem happy, I wanted to ask 2 things about their health. First question: how often do piggies sneeze typically? my piggies have been sneezing a bit more then I'd expect. I have them in...

    Guinea Pig Sneezing & Coughing

    Hello everyone! :) My guinea pig suddenly starts to sneeze or cough. This usually happens randomly like when I'm petting her or after she eats hay. I know guinea pigs sometimes cough when they eat to fast but I'm still really worried cause this started happening 1 1\2 weeks ago.

    Beans Has A Runny Nose And Sneezing

    I'm panicking about Beans. Last night I noticed a bit of of a wet nose, and the same this morning. She's sneezed a few times too. Obviously I'm panicking about a URI or something. Or could it be that she constantly burrows in hay? She usually has some green in her nostrils from burrowing in...

    Guinea Pig Is Sneezing

    I have two guinea pigs. They have been treated for a URI a couple weeks ago since they were sneezing and one had a crusty eye. I went on holidays and after 15 days I saw them and they seemed to be doing great, their fur was amazingly soft and they had grown a bit more (they're 4 and 6 months...

    Uri Symptoms / Allergies?

    So, I adopted 2 guinea pigs about a week ago, and the bedding they came with causes dust. I understand that dusty bedding is bad for guinea pigs, but I didn't want to stress them out even more by cleaning their cage and replacing their bedding in less than a week. I'm cleaning their cage later...

    My Guinea Pig Sneezes

    I've had a baby guinea pig for about a month now and the whole time I've been noticing she sneezes. It's usually never excessive, but yesterday she sneezed four times close together. Today it was once. She doesn't seem to have any other symptoms of a URI. She eats like a horse and drinks. She...

    Sneezing Piggy

    My 1 year old pig lives with 2 younger ones in a hutch outside, and she has been noticed sneezing for the past couple days. The weather has been quite windy/rainy, which would explain if she's gotten a flu. What should I do for her to get well again?

    Dried Boogers But Nothing Else

    My guinea pig, Alexander, has been developing dried boogers lately. Its kind of funny because food or paper bedding gets stuck out of his nose (which makes him look silly) but at the same time, I don't know if I should worry or not. I always use paper bedding but I never used Pine or wood...

    New Piggy Sounds Bunged Up

    Hi I have a new guinea pig, he is four months old but the family he belonged to needed to get rid of him as they have yappy dogs. They said there isn't anything wrong with him and he's a happy guy and he is but I noticed from first having him that he's quite sneezy and when I looked it up I got...

    Trouble Dealing With Uri

    When I got my second guinea pig, Cookie in June, a couple weeks later I noticed that he was congested. So I took him to a vet and I was told he had a URI and they gave me antibiotics, i.e. Bactrim (0.4 ml, two times a day) He was on bactrim for a week and later on he got sick again, so I asked...
