    Proper care for piggies on doxycycline

    Hello! I currently have two piggies on doxycycline because when I got them I soon noticed they we’re sneezing way too much and took them to the vet. I just want to make sure I am giving them a good diet while they’re going through this. I give it to them twice a day. Should I also be giving them...

    Probiotic before dose?

    Hi! Our guinea pigs are on two antibiotics, and due to our schedule, we are only able to give a probiotic two hours after the second dose of antibiotics. So i was wondering if I could give benebac two hours before the antibiotic? Would it have the same effect or would it be pointless. Thanks!

    URI troubles!

    My piggies started getting treated for URI three days ago with Baytril. The last URI (ab a month ago) was also treated with Baytril, and all the symptoms went away within the second day of Baytril. This is now the third, almost fourth day and although they aren't worsening (at least I do not...

    Cisapride and Baytril?

    Hi! I wasn't just wondering if it is safe to give cisapride and Baytril at the same time? My piggies are on Baytril for possible URI (we just started yesterday) and one Piggie is not only kind of gassy, but her poops are a bit smaller than usual. I have been giving her simethicone (I know it's...

    URI

    Hello! My guinea pigs Popcorn and Pumpkin recovered from a URI about a month ago, and since then have been all healthy. On Monday (today is Friday) I noticed one of them had a sneeze attack, but days went by and neither of them were showing any other symptoms, so I decided they did not have...

    Can this URI return?

    My guinea pigs recently got off of Baytril for a URI, four days ago. Those four days ago, we got a recheck at the vet and they said everything sounded perfect. However, it's today that i still noticed some sneezing. I honestly can't tell if it's more than usual but I'm still worried that it...

    PLEASE HELP - Crusty Eye

    At first it was just little white flakes that would go away, assuming she cleaned them off herself. Now it’s gotten this bad in the span of 3-4 days. It’s only in her left eye, and my other piggy doesnt have it. She also hasnt been eating as many pellets as before. Her and her sister would...

    Baytril's side effects?

    Hi! So my guinea pigs have been on Baytril for nine days now (today is the tenth), and I've noticed a few things in one of them, Popcorn. Yesterday, i noticed that her poops were smaller than usual. Some poops i found were even just tiny balls of poop, literally TINY. Some were mushy, while...

    Fast breathing?

    My guinea pigs both have URIs which are getting treated with Baytril, but about two days ago i noticed my guinea pig (one of the two) had begun breathing quite quickly (her sides were going in and out pretty rapidly). She's still eating and being active, but it's kind of worrying me. You could...

    PLEASE HELP - URI

    Everyone, my guinea pig Popcorn (female, 4.5 years old), is suffering from a URI. She's currently lethargic, is sneezing more than usual, sometimes makes a crackling sound, and is breathing quite loudly every once in a while. She still has some energy, as she has ran a tiny bit (but fast). She...

    Chirping/Wheezing + weight loss

    Hi, I’ve got a two (almost 3) year old female guinea pig called Poppy, who’s had a tough couple of weeks. Started with removing an inch long piece of hay/grass from her eye which resulted in a eye ulcer, but the emergency out of hour vets sorted that with pain relief and eye drops and her eye is...

    Specialist What's wrong with my guinea pig? - Persistent congestion with clear lungs?

    I just got 2 guinea pigs from a friend of mine who couldn't keep them anymore. 1.5 year old Clyde came to me with what I thought was clearly an uri, so I made sure to keep him away from the 2 piggies I already had. Immediately I took him to the exotic pet care clinic and the doctor told me that...

    Breathing Issues

    Hi, My guinea pig has been struggling to breathe. She sounds as if she has a stuffy nose and has crusty discharge. She’ll breathe normally for a while and then all of a sudden will struggle for about 10 minutes, and then be fine for a while again. I assumed it was a URI and brought her to the...

    Possible URI Symptoms?

    How can you tell if your guinea pig has a respiratory infection? My boy has some yellow/green dried up snot on his left nostril (never the right one). He also has a cut under his left nostril by his lip that looks a bit swollen, I’m not sure how it happened but it appeared yesterday morning...

    Running nose and sneezing

    I lost a Guinea pig and it left my eldest Peaches alone. I decided she needs company and looked around for a guinea pig. I found a young Abyssinian girl and I fell in love! She was checked before I took her and she was clear. Once home I put her into my big indoor pen (can’t have guinea pigs...
