    Is he going to hurt his teeth?

    Hey, I feel like all I talk about is Kronk and his tunnel and I’m sorry about that but I’ve been worrying about something and didn’t want to sound silly but I think I just have to ask. Will the boys hurt their teeth chewing on the hay tunnel? The sound that it makes when they’re chewing on it...

    Overgrown molars and not eating hay

    I have a 4 year old male named Sully who recently had gut stasis. We took him to the vet and after a week of antibiotics and a LOT of critical care his gut is totally fine. He poops and pees regularly and gets very excited about food. However in the interrim of not eating correctly his molars...

    Black Stripes Between Frontal Teeth

    Today I noticed black stripes just next to the frontal teeth on one of my boars. It was difficult getting a good picture showing his entire mouth, but there appears to be two very similar lines on his upper teeth, just as the lower ones (see pictures). I was just curious about what it is, since...

    Is this normal?

    not sure if the video will work but I will try. Penelope had some sharp inner points filed of her back molars. 4 days later, she is still eating like this. On pain meds and gut medicine. Does anyone have experience with this.

    Abnormal poops

    A little while ago, I’ve posted that one of my girls has weird poops. They had a slight point to them and lately I’ve noticed even weirder poops in their cage. I will include a picture. I seen that it could be dehydration but I’ve seen them both drinking. It seems like their water bottle has not...

    Weird noise

    Pip my 5 and a half year old female has been doing this weird gagging type of thing, the first time she did it was about a year ago and it happens on average maybe once every 2 months.

    Dental Teeth problems/front teeth too long?

    Hello! Last week i took my guinea pig to the vet as he was losing weight and not wanting to eat. The vet said they checked his teeth briefly and didn't see anything wrong so they gave him some fluids and Metacam pain relief for me to give him for a week, some EmerAid syringe food for the next 24...

    Both of my guinea pigs constantly “click” their teeth

    I’ve always wondered why my guinea pigs make this little “click” sound with their teeth. I had a previous piggy that did this as well, so it seems pretty common. It’s not the chattering they make when they’re agitated, it’s literally just a click noise. Is there a reason they do this? Here is a...

    Guinea pig teeth trimmed too short?

    I recently noticed one of my boars had crooked top incisors, so I took him to a vet (that supposedly works with small animals) to have his teeth trimmed. Unfortunately, I was not able to go with to this vet appointment, so my mom had to take him. They told us he suffered from malocclusion (what...

    One of my guinea pigs tooth is shorter than the others

    I was playing with my guinea pig the other day when I noticed one of her teeth was shorter than the other ones. I do not remember her teeth being like this before, she is eating fine and drinking. I think it might be her water bottle but I honestly do not know. I do not have a picture but it is...

    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...

    Short front teeth?

    A friend of mine was asking about his pig, Gus, who doesn't like to eat hard food and treats. He was wondering if his front teeth seemed too long. I don't think the bottom are too long, but the top ones seem pretty short, and the gum seems to be poking through in the middle which can't be...
