    Not Eating As Much Hay Beginning 5/7

    On Thursday, May 7, I opened a fresh new bag of hay (I use Oxbow's Timothy Hay/Orchard Grass Blend). Neither of my guinea pigs seemed that interested and preferred instead to eat what was left of their old bag; hay that was arguably less fresh and getting stale. But even then, they did not eat...

    Guinea pig making weird faces

    I just checked on him right now and he’s making weird faces. Like he has something stuck in his mouth. I know my old guinea pig would make these faces when she was having trouble eating, so it’s just making me worried. I’m hoping it will correct itself soon, maybe it’s just a piece of hay stuck...

    Broken Tooth?

    Hello! My pig, Crank, partially broke his right top tooth today. It's not a crack or a chip, definitely a break, but it's just barely hanging on towards the back. It wiggles when I touch it. I can see that it's a clean break through the root, no blood on him or in his cage, and it's about...
