    Do my boys need separating?

    I have a 1.5 year old boar Benio, who was bonded with little Ozzie who is now around 4- 5 months. They were bonded when Ozzie was about 6 weeks, and seem to get on fine, with some typical dominance behaviour going on. Since the start, Benio was the dominant pig, with Ozzie usually making...

    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...

    Strange noise and behaviour

    Hello all, I’m a little desperate because I cannot seem to find an answer to my little fellow’s behaviour anywhere! So suddenly, since yesterday, my guinea pig (he’s 3 and a bit years old) started making this strange noise. (I'll can't attach an audio of the noise so I'll link it up at the...

    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...

    Persistent Soft Poop/Stool! Help!

    Hi! I have two boars. Patches and Carmal. I posted another thread about this, but it has not gotten better. I’m really worried. I live in the US, so I would not be able to get fibreplex. He does not have diarrhea but both of their poops are soft. I have not taken them to the vet, since my...

    Not Eating Pellet

    Hi! I have two boars (Patches and Carmal). I had to leave them alone for a week, but I had someone looking after them. Before I left, they would eat all their pellets by evening. This morning, I woke up around 10 am, and they had eaten the whole bowl. The thing is, that there are two bowls with...

    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...

    worried

    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?!

    lip infection?

    I went to see my guinea pigs after over 24 hours away from them (my Mum looked after them) and I saw something on one's lip. It was like a bit of feeding hay stuck to his lip with dried up pellet mush. Ten minutes later I came back with a wet cotton bud and my Mum. When I came back it looked...

    Guniea pig eye

    So, my Guinea pig, who is a little over a year old, had gotten a bad eye infection, and while she got better and her eye went back to a normal size, she's blind in that eye, and recently I was looking at it with a light and noticed this, these are my first set of Guinea pigs, so I haven't had...

    Problem with eye

    I discovered today my guinea pig ozzy, who is almost 7 now, has something wrong with one n of his eyes. It has turned a bluey colour with a white spot in the middle. He normally has black brown eyes. There was movement of the white dot occasionally but it seems like he is unable to see out of...

    Lump or bone? Please help

    Hi all, when picking up my youngest piggie today (he's 10 months) I noticed a hard rounded end lump or bone,I'm not sure which, in between his front legs, I can't feel one on my older pig, however he has quite a bit more fat than my little one. The lump feels as though it is long and curved at...

    First night together!

    Hi there, I’m new here and just looking for a bit of advice. We have just adopted a new Guinea pig today from a rescue. He is a 1.5 year old male and had always lived alone. We needed a new companion for our 10 month old male as he lost his friend recently. The bonding has gone pretty well and...

    Limping guinea pig

    Hello, i really need help. I have a female guinea pig, which is almost 7 year old. Two days ago, she started walking in a rather funny way. It looks like her leg is swollen and she holds it in the air all the time. She's eating and drinking, at least a bit. The question is, is it worth taking...

    Away from the boys

    We’ve gone away for the weekend and so I had to put the boys in boarding. I’m a little worried because they’re in a smaller enclosure and I’m not sure how many times they’ll be put in the run. I’m sure they’ll be fine anyway but I can’t help but worry. It’s like putting your child in Nursery etc...

    Help, guinea pig eating less and slow

    Ever since i came back from a four day holiday my guinea pig, Patchy, was eating his dinner and grass extremely slowly, and he seemed to look unwell. He and his brother, Chewy (the most confident piggy in the world) were at my mothers friends house. But this weekend was extremely hot and the...

    Constant jumping/skipping?

    Hello everyone! I just got 2 guinea pigs, around 3 months of age. They were put together a week ago since they’re not related, but they are getting along great. However, these are my first piggies, and a few things worry me. First off, is it normal that they’re constantly jumping and skipping...

    Coughing Or Retching?

    We were just about to leave the flat today when we heard Artemis making an odd sound. Look round and he's jerking his head forward and making a sound like someone trying to be sick. I know guineas can't actually be sick and it ends up in their lungs (heard from someone - please correct if...

    Worried About Bloat!

    Hi, I'm new to this site so apologies if there is already an existing topic on this. I own two sows who are three years old. Yesterday I was giving them cucumber when I noticed one of my guinea pigs, who is the bigger of the two, had a slightly swollen stomach. At first I thought she may have...
