    Hi! I'm Sarah, I've been owning guinea pigs for quite some time now. Just this morning, I woke up to find my neutered boar, Ozzy, unable to move, but still alive. After taking him to our emergency vet, we were told that he was in cardiac shock with a BPM of 40, so they performed CPR on him for...

    Both pigs died suddenly :(

    Hi all I’m hoping to get some clarification as I’m going out of my mind trying to think what’s caused this. So yesterday I put my three boars out in their run, they had water, pellets, an iglu dome thing and a large tunnel in there, I’ll admit, I forgot to put a cover over one side of the run...

    Pig Died, One Left Behind

    i had two guinea pigs, not particularly old (around 2 years, just under) and 2 days ago found one of the boys dead. The day before he seemed perfectly happy and healthy, so I have no idea what happened. I now have one left, (his cage mate) who seems healthy and is eating and drinking fine since...

    Sudden Death

    I had two piggies about 6 months ago and both were well fed with hay and had fresh water. I take them out of the cage and let them roam around my room for exercise but make sure they don't eat anything while they are out. One afternoon I left for work and didn't come back until the next day only...

    My Guinea Pig has recently died and now her cage mate is all alone. I have two male Guinea Pigs in a separate cage, and the now single female in a rabbit hutch. She is two years old. I know Guinea Pigs should be in groups. Should I get a new cage mate for the female, and if so how old? (Planning...
