    Possible Bladder Stones/infection?

    Last month, my gorgeous 3yr old piggie Robbie passed a huge plug of some kind out of his urethra and had to get it removed by the emergency vet. His normal vet then prescribed him a week's worth of Baytril and said we'd keep an eye on him. He seemed to be doing okay, eating fine and everything...

    Both ears are crusty on the outside and inside of the ear, but not down inside if that males sense. No vet available til Wednesday morning at 8:30 am. Nearest exotic vet when our vet is not in, is 150 miles one way. None of the other vets in this town will treat a guinea pig. Ruth

    Rodentologist Needed

    Hi everyone! I'm having so much trouble trying to find a decent vet, they seem to have very little (or no) knowledge on Guinea pigs. I've spoken to Vedra a few times and she's been really knowledgable and helpful but as you all probably know she is so difficult to get hold of. She gave me the...

    Reccomend Vets In Glasgow?

    Hey all, Have been taking Weasley to Albavet in Dennistoun for his issues as they're right round the corner and the vets seem fairly piggy savvy. However they now say they've surpassed all their knowledge on how to treat him as his gassy tummy/bloat and UTI seem to be neverending. They...

    Baby Piggy With Uri?

    I just got a baby guinea pig today (he's about 6-8 weeks I think?) and he makes a weird noise before making a noise that sound like he's coughing or choking? His nose isn't runny but he keeps nearly closing one of his eyes. I can't find any thing on this and I'm scared? Please help? He also is...

    Foot Injury (please Help)

    My three year old male boar guinea pig scraped his foot. Its scraped at the top of the foot but I am worried it will get infected. I soaked the wound in warm water, dried it off, applied a very small amount of neosporin, wrapped it in gauze, and wrapped in vet wrap. I also changed his bedding...

    Okay, Slight Vet Panic...

    So, not sure where to put this, BUT... Well. Last time they had a checkup they went to Pets1st. But I'm not sure how cavy knowledgable they are, and in an emergency I want to make sure our boys will be in good hands. I've tried the vet locator but, well, I'm not sure any of them are very close...

    Piggy Fell On His Back!

    I was in the cage, feeding the boys. I was on my feet and my knees were, hmm, about as high as a smartphone, probably higher. Anyway, Godfrey jumped on my leg to get the food and fell off onto his back! He landed on the soft fleece and spent about a millisecond looking surprised before he went...

    Vitamin C - Could Anyone Please Give Me Some Advice?

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me? I took my 2 year old female guinea pig, Dora, to the vet on Friday night thinking she had eggs around her back end (which surprised me because their cage is kept very clean and she is treated for flystrike, flees, lice etc). When the vet...

    Mites Or Lice?!?

    Hi, I bought 2 beautiful little peruvian sisters just over 2 weeks ago so they must be about 8/9 weeks old now. Built a new cage for them to come home too out of wood which gave them plenty room to roam! They both seemed to settle in fine, still a bit nervous but we handle them plenty so...

The reason(s) I didn't go right to uni after highschool and do it are as...
