    Underweight Piggy

    We have an underweight piggy. He eats just fine and plays like a piggy would, he has just always kinda weighed less than he should. So he isn't sick, just that he doesn't seem to be plump enough. I have read organic coconut chunks (no added sugars etc) are good for putting some weight on them...

    One of my guinea pigs recently had back to back ear infections, and due to those has developed some dental issues. His front teeth were trimmed but his back teeth still need to be taken care of. He is currently too underweight to under go that process. He is on critical care feed per vet...

    Hello I have two guinea boys who are between 10-11 weeks, they were purchased from a farm. They have both increased 60g in the last 6 days now weighing 441g & 480-ishg but I’m not sure if I should be worried that they are underweight or on the flip side gaining too quickly. Is this any cause...

    too small and maybe not growing fast enough

    Our guinea pig Kookie is around 5 months old and I’ve seen pictures and videos of 3 month old guinea pigs who were bigger than him. When we first got him we were concerned because his previous owner told us he’d never had any vegetables or fruits before, just hay and his food. We could tell...

    Lump Under The Chin

    Hi! Our piggy has a lump the size of a grap. It's located under the jaw, if you imagine sticking your finger through a mans adams apple, that's where the lump is. The vet took xrays of his jaw, because it's very large and not normal, but it was not causing him any pain. The vet did not mention...

    Squeaky Pig, But Not The Good Squeaks

    My guinea pig Smudge appears to be making some odd squeaks lately. It started two weeks ago and I initially thought it may be early signs of an upper respiratory infection, therefore took him to the vets to get checked. They checked everything; heart, lungs, teeth, poops, and felt for any lumps...
