    Super long quicks

    So I recently adopted two guinea pigs that clearly hadn’t been well looked after :( both of them have super long quicks (I think that’s the name for them) which is the blood vessel part inside their nail. Is there any way to help them? Because I can’t cut into the blood their nails are also...

    Hay Problem!

    So for the past few years ive been using alfalfa king timothy hay (11.36kg bag) but when I went to order some they were all out ! I looked at other sites but it was out of stock there too. Anyone know where to get some or something like it? All I need is for it to be nice (green, not dusty)...

    Baytril Causing Mushy Poo

    Hi guys! Recently my wee girl got pretty sick and was brought to the vet. There they gave me 4 days worth of baytril. After the four days she was fine and eating as normal. Just now I noticed her poops are pretty mushy. The baytril doses finished on the 18th but I've heard it can cause mushy...

    Disciplining A Guinea Pig?

    Hi all! So recently one of my Guinea pigs has learned how to tip over her bowl and knock out the food. This is a problem because the food gets gross and my other piggie started chewing the bowl. I was wondering if there's a way to stop her? She is refusing to eat unless the bowl has been tipped...

    Guinea Pig Won't Get Food

    So first of all when I first bought my Guinea pigs I didn't know as much as I do now and bought a Pets @ Home cage (a large one though) but in these cages there's a ledge Guinea pigs have to jump up to (it's a teeny jump) to get their food. That went fine and they learned quickly but all of a...

    Possible Bloat? Please Help

    Yesterday was quite a nice day so I put my piggies out to graze, this is the first time this year they've been out to graze. This morning I noticed one of my piggies making funny noises (a little bit of tummy rumbling and something that sounded like farting/balloon deflating) she ate some hay...

    What's Good?

    I've read that a museli type food is bad for piggies and a nugget type food should be offered alongside hay and fresh veg. I used to use a museli type food a few years ago so I'm confused if I should feed a nugget type or a mix? Thank you

    Searching For Houses Pictured, Help?

    I was interested in acquiring houses such as these but ZooPlus doesn't ship to the USA. Does anyone happen to know where else I may be able to find houses such as these? I adore the natural looking wood on them. I've considered making my own but I don't think the trees out here are safe for...

    Recusing A Pig, Mites? Any Remedies?

    Someone is selling a pig, and it has much too small a cage, not properly taken care of and as I'm talking to them, they're telling me she has little black/brown speckles on her back end and doesn't come off even though they have washed her how many times. I was curious if there are any remedies...
