    Skin Problems Redness on back and hair loss

    I'm watching my friends guinea pigs and the female just gave birth to 3 pups on July 1st. She had her to the vet 2 weeks prior to giving birth where they noticed her skin was somewhat dry and had a scab. They gave her an anti-itch topical spray and an antifungal spray. She stopped using this...

    Bonding Falling Out??

    Yes I reintroduced them as new on neutral territory. There wasn't any actual fighting (I think) but they were getting into a few scuffles that were beginning to look like flying balls of fur... So I didn't want to risk them getting injured. Charlie is really aggressive and I've often wondered if...

    Bonding Falling Out??

    Hey guys. I have 4 piggies, all male. They are in pairs of two with Sammy and Oliver perfectly bonded in one cage and Charlie and Blu WERE bonded in another. Everything was fine until they all got URIs and Blu stopped eating and drinking. I noticed Charlie would chase him away from the food and...

    Eyes/Non-crusty Watery eye

    I just noticed that one of my boys has one watery eye.. I'm not sure if this is something to worry about or how to help him. I can't see anything obvious in his eye and the other one appears completely normal. What should I do?

    Okay so I'm guessing this is correct, then?

    Actually, I may be completely wrong. It may be 0.14 ml. I'll post a picture of the label when I get home in an hour or so just to be sure.

    Quick question! I was looking up possible side effects of metacam to look out for in sammy. In doing so, I'm afraid the dosage he was prescribed is too high. He's 1.5 pounds and the vet said to give 1.4 ml a day. Is this right?

    New owner with a gender question!

    Hey guys, just got back from the vet. He prescribed oral ivermectin, metacam (he has swelling in his ear from scratching), and a soother cream. Sammy did really well. However, I have another question. The vet said he was "worried" about his voice and said he had the lowest volume to his wheeks...

    Okay, thank you. He loves peppers so I try to give him a piece by hand when I come sit with him.

    No, he wasn't. And he's only 2-3 months old. Hopefully the vet can give some insight. The really upsetting part is that hell even bite me really hard if I'm not even touching him. I'll put my hand in the cage to let him smell me and he nibbles a little and then bites hard.

    But they aren't even in the same house right now. Ugh I don't know. I hope it works out..

    New owner with a gender question!

    Yeah that's the thing. He's nowhere near the other ones. Theres no way he smells or hears them. The cage is brand new as well as all the fleece and toys. But he does this constantly. He does the cat bed thing probably 10 times a day.

    New owner with a gender question!

    Ikay, thank you! I guess I'll just need to wait for the vet to figure him out. Also, I've noticed once I put him in this giant c&c cage by himself that he seems to be possibly rumblestrutting everywhere all the time. He has a cat bed on the loft and he goes underneath it and makes that "purring...

    It's this kind that I've seen people link to: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00JAL3AAW/ref=redir_mdp_mobile/187-0199267-4627444 Basically I convinced myself that he could have mites (I used to go back and forth everyday), and can't find a vet in my area that doesn't charge waaaaaay too much for...

    Topical ivermectin. I've already used it twice, 7 days apart.

    I don't know.. He still seems to really hate being held. I hope he's not just an aggressive guinea pig.. :sad: But he is still itching a lot. Let me upload a few pictures and if need be ill try to pick him up and make him comfortable.

    . hello! I have three New Guinea pigs. Charlie (black, brown, and white) and Blu (black and white) were together when I got them 2 months ago and are great with each other. They are both definite males. Sammy is my newest member (brown and white). He has not been introduced to my other two yet...
