We just got a cute little Abyssinian satin guinea pig. he is SO sweet and absolutely awesome with my overly mature 5 yr old son. His name is "elephant" picked by my son. I think it's a pretty cute, very different name. :) We are super excited about our new addition.

I just purchased my male skinny pig from the pet store 2 days ago and he's sick. Watery eyes, sneezing, and coughing. I'm scared and don't know what to do for him. He is on a hypoallergic bedding, timothy hay. Eats and drinks well. He is in a warm place, I have a small blanket inside his house within the cage. Any suggestions?

    Take him to the vet, if they get a cold or pneumonia they can die. Make sure he has lots of water and is not too close to a heating vent because it can dehydrate him. All the best.

    I breed hairless piggies and I can tell you that your pig needs to go to the vet right away..he needs antibiotics..if he stops eating it could be too late...good luck with your piggie...

    Watery eyes are normal in skinny pigs they have no eyelashes so most everything that gets in there eyes stays there, thus creating watery eyes there is nothing you can really do to prevent it. I have a male skinny pig and I give him natural tears eyedrops every once in a while which does help it, as for the coughing and sneezing that isn't normal so you should see your vet.

My guinea pig's neck is deformed was since last night. His head sits at angle towards the ceiling and he walks around like that. Could he have sufferd a stroke? or could the other guinea pig have stepped on it?

    Hi kaela,
    It does sound as if he's had a stroke. Many guinea pigs can recover from this but you will need to visit a vet to get him checked out, and keep a close eye on him for a while.

Oh my, I have 45 guinea pigs. It would take to long to name them all though, so I will name five. These are recently born babies; Dart, gail, maisey, polly, and sammy. They are aborable! I'm so thankful for this website. Here are all my pets - okay; 45 guinea pigs, 7 dogs, 4 cats, 7 bettas, 3 lamas, 2 horses, and 5 parrots. I don't sell my guinea pigs when they are babies because I just can't bare to part with them. I enjoy all animals, and think skinny pigs are still adorable no matter what people say. Thanks Animal-World, for all you do!!!

I have a Derbyan Parakeet who has been in our home now for about 5 years.. We rescued her from a pet store. The owner told us the people who brought her in didnt have time to care for her and didnt want her anymore.. She dislikes men, shes very very very agressive which throws me off as to everything people say about these birds.. Despite the love and care weve put into her she doesnt like hands around her cage.. she cant stand fingers near her.. her head starts to bob and the iris' of her eyes get really small and she gets into attack mode.. Shortly after brining her hom about a month she attacked My fiancees nose leave a gash in it.. when all he was doing was trying to talk to her and feed her a treat.. weve tried the taking her out of the cage and wrapping her in a towel and try to break her of her aggression but that seemed to only make her revert back into a shell.. She dislikes loud noises and her hiding spot is under one of her platforms close to the bottom of the cage.. she literally crawls under there and kinda low squawks at anything around.. since weve had her shes had no eggs.. we have no clue as to how old she is, what she had been through before us or how to find a way to track the band around her ankle.. As for talking that everyone talks about not even a peep.. sure shell let out screechs and squawks that will pierce your eardrums.. but despite attempts of trying to even teach her she wont utter anything but low garbles under her breath and hisses too.. I dont know what to do with her we basically leave her be.. she has a cockatile friend who lives in a cage above hers and theyve been friends for some time.. oh yes and as for taking Sweetie Pie out of her cage... she wont stand for it she goes nuts.. and tries to bite you.. and let me just tell you that beak hurts and is nothing to take litely... so if anyone has any sort of advice help pointers you name it please i beg of you send it.. my dream tho we adore her dearly would be to find her a protected home where she could fly free in an environment where all her needs would be met and cared for.. so if anyone knows of that also please let me know.. Id rather her happy because apparently no matter what we do she is soo miserable... thank you..
