    Eyes/Non-crusty Pink/Cloudy... Help!

    I managed to get her into the emergency vet today, she has an ulcer on her eye, he prescribed eyedrops (Neomycin, Polymyxin, and Gramacidin). She's tired after her trip in the car but she seems happy and otherwise healthy.

    Eyes/Non-crusty Pink/Cloudy... Help!

    It looks like there is a small spot on her eye that is rough or raw, so I think it might be an abrasion. The soonest I can get her in to the vet is Monday, as our vet is not open on Sunday. Is there anything I should do in the meantime?

    Eyes/Non-crusty Pink/Cloudy... Help!

    This evening, I noticed something strange about my guinea pig Spike's left eye... I've attempted to attach a picture, but I don't know if it will work. Basically her eye is normal except for a cloudy-ish spot, and the white part of her eye is bloodshot. I'm thinking she poked herself either...

    Sneezing Hay Dust or Something Else?

    So, I know I posted about my other pig Luisa having a lot of weight loss a couple of weeks ago, happy to report that she has been steady around 2 lbs 2 oz, but this is about my other pig Spike. Today, she was over in her hay corner, and started sneezing. She sneezed 6 or 7 times within a few...

    Lethals Out of 3 GP's, 1 has died, 1 is showing similar symptoms and 1 is fine. Please help.

    Illness in guinea pigs can escalate extremely quickly, especially since they often do not start showing symptoms until it is very severe. My old pig, Rambo, had a URI and we didn't even know until it was too late; he was shaking and twitching, couldn't stand up, wouldn't eat/drink, etc.

    Sick Everything gone wrong- questions!

    I am so sorry you are having to go through this, and I don't really have enough experience to know anything about what you can do for him. However, my pigs are currently having a bit of a problem with smaller and dryer poop, and about a month ago it was really mushy. Since you have some...

    Feet Muffin bites her nails?

    I haven't looked at all, but hey, its Google right? I mean, what can't you find on the internet? ;)

    How old?

    Ugh! Pet stores disgust me! Like, how can they look at those poor innocent pigs and treat them the way that they do! It's awful!

    How old?

    Yes, this is highly possible and has happened to many many people. In fact, I think my two girls were a result of an accidental pregnancy from the petstore. I'm not actually sure about the age at which they become fertile, I've heard four weeks and I've heard two months...

    Feet Muffin bites her nails?

    My pigs do this also. I posted about it and found out that it is their way of cleaning their paws. My pigs have never bitten them to the point that they start bleeding, but I guess every pig is different. I would just keep an eye on it, make sure it is healing properly, etc. Although I don't...

    Conditions Cause for Concern?

    What could the smaller and tapered poops indicate? How do I fix it?

    Conditions Cause for Concern?

    I'm still kind of new to the guinea pig world, especially with young piggies, so I'm not really sure what is normal, what is cause for concern, and when you should decide that your pig needs to see a vet. I've noticed a few things, being the overprotective momma that I am, that seem strange, or...
