    Guinea Pig only eating dry food

    Hello, I am hoping someone can help me with my guinea pig. She won't eat any food other than dry food (and pea flakes as a treat). We use Burgess nuggets with blackcurrant and Oregano. As a result she is a lot lighter than our other guinea pig (she is 600g and the other 1-1kg) but not losing...

    Guinea pig weight

    Hi guys so I've seen most websites say a healthy weight for a male guinea pig is between 900 - 1200 g but my vet weighed my own boar and said he was healthy at 1350. When I asked he said anything up to about 1400 is healthy so has anybody else been told something similar to this?

    Weight drop

    Hi, I’ve started weighing my piggies weekly this year (I did weigh them in the past but this year I have done it religiously each week). Now, I know they fluctuate and I’m used to seeing them raise and drop a few grams here and there, but Bellamy has dropped a bit more than usual and I don’t...

    Weighing skittish pig

    Hi! I have a piggie coming to 5 months old and she is extremely skittish, she is sometimes ok with me stroking her but hates getting held. I have a really hard time getting ahold of her and getting her to stay on the scales when i do. My question is how can i weigh her without stressing her out...

    Weight

    Hi! I have two sows, both almost 8 months old, and both of them weigh around 920-930g. I feel like this seems like quite a large number for their age. Just thought i’d get everyones opinion. Their heft seems good, i can feel their ribs but there is a layer of fat there (if that makes sense)...

    Fluctuating Weight

    Hi! I think I'm worrying over nothing but my guinea pigs weight has been fluctuating. Two weeks ago she weighed in at 936g then last week she was 925g and now she is 915g, i also dont weigh them at the same which i probably should. Could it have been that i weighed her on a full stomach on the...

    weight loss

    I recently weighed my guinea pig and his weight has dropped significantly from 1300g to 1150g over the past couple weeks. We moved them inside for the winter around October and he's been living alone ever since due to the fact that he doesn't get along with any of the other pigs. He is given...

    Poop check pls

    My piggy has been on antibiotics for 8 days now and her poops are being weird ever since. We've been feeding her probiotics and syringe feeding hay and pellets to her. No veggies. At first she was always hiding, maybe because of the antibiotic side effects but now she's coming outside and...

They seem very healthy and eat/drink enough, but when I weighed them they were about 330gs. Does anyone know if theyre underweight of just young? Please help I'm scared if they will die :(...

    Exercise (not allowed to free roam)

    I noticed recently that two of my pigs have been getting a little chunky and not in a good sort of way. I asked my parents if I could free roam them in the kitchen (slate floors) or bathroom (plastic floor) but the answer was an adamant no due to pee and the general smell. I was wondering what...

    Weight at 4 months!

    Hello both of our boars are 870g and are 4 months old. They seem to be gaining quite quickly despite me only giving them the amount of food that is recommended. Is this a big weight or should I reduce the pellets & veggies? thanks 😊

    Are my boys underweight.

    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...

    Underweight piggy

    Hello everyone, it’s my first time posting a thread on here so please bare with me. My 4 year old male piggy, Percy, has recently lost some weight to the point where I am able to feel almost every bone in his body when I pick him up. Percy was just in at the vets a few weeks ago for a serious...

    Slight Weight Loss: New Cage The Cause?

    Last night, I moved my two guinea pigs, Moira and Rose, into a new, larger cage, which they have taken to wonderfully already. This morning, however, during their weekly weigh-in, they had both fallen to around 890g. Rose weighed 915g the week prior, so a loss of 25g, whereas Moira weighed 923g...

    My guinea pig is losing weight but is acting normal

    I am on break from school and have recently moved my guinea pigs to a new location. Same cage but new place. The piggies seem happy and act 100% normal. I was doing their weekly weigh ins and noticed that my pig Winston has lost some weight. On December 11 he was 822 but yesterday he was 808 and...

    One overweighted guinea pig and one normal

    Hi, I have two boars who share together everything. They eat at the same time and there is no fight. They eat about the same amount of food. However, one is 1050g and the other one is 1400g. I would like my big boy to lose some weight but I don’t want the little one to be even more skinny. Do...

    Question Re: Hay, Weight Gain Food

    Since getting my girls back in late May/early June they have always been on the petite side. I have since gotten them up to approximately 840g. After a discussion with my vet and looking at several forums on here, I began slowly introducing small amounts of dry, old-fashioned oats and grated...

    Is this normal?

    Last week we’ve moved our 5 piggies inside for the winter and they’ve all seem to put on 30g to 65 ish. I was just wondering if this is normal for them? (Its our smallest one that’s put in the most weight but I think it’s due to the fact that we had to separate him from his two friends as he...

    Proper weight?

    So I’ve been a bit concerned about Chorizo, when it comes to food he’s really not vocal, and he really doesn’t eat as much as Tiny (my new piggie)does. I weighed him today and he’s about 450 grams, and I believe he’s around 3-4 months. What do you guys think, do you think that’s an appropriate...
