    GP can’t seem to open mouth? - teeth

    Hi, we noticed our GP Daisy has lost considerable weight. We thought she was just staying in her house and not running out for food, but we think she likely hasn’t eaten for a while. She seems desperate to eat but just can’t seem to open her mouth?. Gave her some dandelions which she loves...

    Talked to a vet!

    Hi it's been a bit I've talked to a vet and they said that Manny's foot is at the very beginning of pododermatitis. For now I need to keep an eye on him, make sure he gets his vitamins and try to get him from sleeping in his litterbox. I just rearranged their cage so he wouldn't be tempted...

    Guinea Pig Broke Her Tooth/ What to Do Next?

    Title. I pulled her out of the cage for some floor time. I didn't have a good enough grip on her and she got excited and jumped out of my hands before I could put her down. It wasn't that far of a fall and she seemed fine. So, I didn't think to check her mouth. When I fed her a crunchy treat, I...
