    Guinea pig stitches

    Hi! So my female Guinea pig Avi just got spayed and it’s been about 7 days with everything going well.

    To Spay Or Not To Spay That Is The Question

    My four-month-old, 380g female pig just had her first vet wellness check. The vet recommended that I have her spayed at 6 months. I am conflicted about this as I have had pigs before and I've never had any problems. While the vet seemed knowledgeable, she is not a specialist in cavies. Estimate...
