    Possible neurological issues

    I'm going to say this straight off the bat, I suck at describing what's going on. This is going to be a long one since everything kind of needs a backstory first. But I've been seeing my guinea pig do this for a few days now and after what happened today, I knew I needed to trust myself even...

    really big toe

    Hi, I got my Severus in May, and when I got him, he had a really big toe on his front left foot. Because he is a rescue, we thought that maybe the previous owner didn't cut his nails properly and maybe it got infected. When we cut his nails we missed out that toe, but now it is bigger and we...

    Soft Stool/Poop

    Hi. I have two boars (Carmel and Patches) they get along fine. About a week ago I took them off veggies because of their white pee and soft poop. It was probably more than a week by now though. Right now they’re on a diet of hay, pellets, and fresh water. The soft poop has been going on...

    I saw two drops of blood under my guinea pigs' cave, then I saw a small spatter of blood on the side of Neville's face, near his eye. I checked all of their eyes, tummies, feet and teeth, but all was well. What do I do? It'll cost £75 to take them all to the vet to get checked out. Help?!
