    Guinea Pig isn't scared of anything?

    Hi all, don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about this personality trait at all haha! But, ever since I got my trio of Guinea Pigs, a neutered boar (around 3yo) and two sows (around 2yo), the girls have been petrified, hiding constantly, and only have just started to come out of their shell...

    Happy five years!

    I got to celebrate my five year gotcha day with Elevensies last week. I got her from a shelter where the staff told me she was about three at the time, so I can only guess at how old this queen is. I feel so blessed every day we get to spend together. Five years ago she didn’t like any people...

    Urine Scald after UTI

    Hi all! The past month has been a bit crazy as my 5yr old female suddenly got a very bad UTI. We did our best to keep her clean during the UTI but she still seems to have urine scald, her genitals seem to be very swollen though which I’m not sure if that’s normal - she did lose quite a bit of...

    Yellow Stuff?

    Hey, I’ve had this sow for around 3 1/2 years. I’ve noticed this yellow hard stuff near her rear end and thought maybe just an over active grease gland and am gonna give her a bath once I can get the proper shampoo(in a weekish) but now it’s on her nose as well? She also is biting me very hard...

    New companion after loss advice

    Hello, I'm new to posting though I've found this forum useful many times so thank you all... Sadly we lost one of our beautiful guinea pigs yesterday and she leaves behind her life companion (4.5 years). She appears to still be eating so not dangerously affected luckily, but we don't want her to...

    Bonding two Sows

    Good evening everyone 🙂, Hopefully someone can shed some light on if this behaviour is establishing hierarchy or if it’s fighting/ unable to bond. One of my Guinea boars passed away a couple weeks ago which left my one sow pretty lonely and she was obviously missing him. I was lucky to have...

    Diarrhea after syringe feeding

    Does anyone know what I should do? My piggie was diagnosed with GI Stasis on Sunday (5 days ago), and we’ve been syringe feeding her three times a day since (it was recommended by the vet). Yesterday and today, she’s had green diarrhea, which is the color of the liquids she’s been getting. It’s...

    Big guinea pig?

    I have a herd of 4 - one neutered boar and three sows. I recently noticed 1 year old, Athena, getting bigger. At first I was scared of pregnancy, but I’ve checked many times, and am positive everyone besides Bunny (the neutered boar) is female. My next thought was bloating, however when I felt...

    Sow behaviour

    Had two sows for roughly three weeks now and when they arrived Dougal was rumble strutting constantly and Luna was squeaking, then it stopped after a while and Luna was on heat so she began doing the same and trying to mount Dougal and then this stopped. All has been fine for a week or more...
