i would take it to the vet. do you not take the guinea pigs out of their cage when you clean? its a perfect time for floor time.
 
Yes, take her to the vet. And, thank you for the grammer lesson for my son.
 
i'm sorry - but you're kidding, right? you took out the fleece to shake it clean and didn't know a guinea pig was i it?! seriously? of all the things i've read here on this site, this is the first thing that leaves me just incredulous. i just don't understand how this could have happened. accidents happen, but this? really?!
 
Yea, I am a little blown by this. And that landlord had no right to walk into that persons apartment without them knowing.

I understand it might seem like an absurd question, but really? No need to be completely rude and insensitive about it. If you have no advice, do not comment.

As others have said, yes your pig absolutely needs to see a vet. She was tossed off of a balcony. Try to be calm and positive, hopefully she will be alright.

And for future reference, take your pigs out of the cage before you clean it!

My landlord does that all the time it IRKS me. I could be laying undressed in bed and he will just walk into my apartment. Says he 'knocked' well whether he knocked or not he still has no right walking into my apartment. Just a bit of a rant.

OP, vet definately. Next time, please please check the fleece before you shake it. I don't understand how you couldn't feel her in the fleece, is she really tiny?
 
That's insane. I would go crazy if my landlord walked into my apartment!
 
I know we all make serious errors at times. Please never forget this one.

Let us know how your Piggy is!
 
If you have to ask "Should I take my guinea pig to the vet?"

The answer is YES 99% of the time.

And for the love of god, get kiddie pool for them to play in while you are cleaning or give them floor time.

Ignorant? It's not ignorant to expect a little common sense when dealing with the life of an animal.
 
Did you take her to the vet? Do you always shake your fleece over your neighbor's balcony?
 
When I lived 2nd floor I shook my fleece out on my balcony. I tried to shake it in a way the wind would blow anything away from the neighbors balcony below but he didn't really care. Occasionally I would sweep his patio when he was away to make up for any poos that landed but it didn't matter much to him as long as he wasn't on it or going in or out. I tried to do it late at night so no one would see me.

Its really hard to believe that this happened. It would be like rolling your infant up in your rug and shaking it out! How could you not know the piggy was in there? I've picked up fleece with a piggy in there and mine FREAK out and there is a huge weight difference.

Definately be careful and definately take her to the vet!
 
Huge weight difference is the point here. It's not like he was a glass statue and wasn't moving around either. I have no idea how in the world something like this could happen. I am hoping it's either a joke, or a cry for attention.
 
i think it a bit odd that lovemypigs hasn't replied back to any of this, after posting about such a terrible event and after feeling so "horrible." and with a name like "lovemypigs" i'm really beginning to suspect some kind of hoax.
