    Mouth jaw fractured during dental procedure

    My sole remaining pig Henna and I drove 7 hours round-trip yesterday to my local guinea pig rescue. Henna had floor time with some lovely piggies. And came home with these 2 lovely girls. Celeste and Jasmine. They are both young- less than 6 months. And they are getting along amazingly. I...

    Mouth jaw fractured during dental procedure

    I met with the vet again this morning and made the very difficult decision to say goodbye to Penny. She deserved not to have to struggle. And the battle was gonna be all uphill from the jaw fracture. Hardest decision I have ever made.

    Medications Wrong type of benebac

    My vet recommended that I give my oldest pig, Maisie, a little benebac periodically. I purchased a new tube and did not realize till I gave her the amount shown that this benebac is for birds and reptiles. Any suggestions on any red flags I should be on the look out for or signs I...

    Skin Problems Bald spot

    It has been a long time since I had reason to post or visit the site. My fosters turned into my piggies and we just celebrated our 1 year piggyversary. I noticed today a bald spot on Henna. None of them have been doing any excessive scratching and it doesn't appear to be injury based. Thinking...

    Adopting Advice needed ... fostering or adopting and issues with surrenders

    I have decided to foster the 3 sows. I have been in touch with the lady who is surrendering them. We are going to work out a meet up spot between our locations. Hopefully on the 2nd. With all the issues I had with ovarian cysts in my two poggies, I think the next permanent additions to my home...

    Joanie

    Today I said goodbye to Joanie. She was sweet and sassy and I loved her tons. I have experienced a lot of loss recently with my pigs. Raven in April and Patch in August. We only have them for a short time but the memory of them lasts forever.

    Adopting Advice needed ... fostering or adopting and issues with surrenders

    My rescue covers any vet expenses for fosters. I would cover everything else. I think I like the idea of fostering. I think I am good at socializing pigs and mine have always done well with handling, interacting. Think I would like to care for some pigs and get them ready for a loving family...

    Adopting Advice needed ... fostering or adopting and issues with surrenders

    First, at 10:31 am this morning my piggy, Joanie, passed away. She had been ill and I had been back and forth to vet. But her little body just gave out. She was my last pig and I would like to get more. I have a great 3x5 c&c, 60 lbs of hay, a lot of Guinea pig knowledge, and a ton of love to...

    Sick Bleeding from nose

    I have been in touch with the rescue where i adopted joanie and raven. Peggy, the owner, has suggested that because of joanies temperament a younger submissive female or a neutered male would probably work best for her. I dont know if joanie cares about not having a neighbor anymore but i have...

    Sick Bleeding from nose

    I decided against the necropsy. I brought him home and buried him with his favorite toys and placed him beside his sissy, Raven. Now I have 1 piggy left. And she has more days behind her than in front. Praying she stays with me for a long long time

He is also having difficulty breathing. And is very lethargic. He keeps struggling as though he is...

    Post surgery care for spay Good news!!! She made it through surgery!!! They want to keep her till 5 pm today so that they can continue to give her fluids and keep her warm. They removed both ovaries (found more cysts) and her uterus. I am sure the doc will give me good aftercare instructions...

    Teeth Overgrown Molars

    I dropped Raven off early this morning for her surgery. I knew before they told me that she has lost a lot of weight since her visit on Wednesday. Spent last night giving her big cuddles and remembering when I drove 3.5 hours back in 2012 to the Knoxville Guinea Pig Rescue to get her and...
