  1. Guinea Pig Discussion
    Ok, I have three pigs and they have an appointment to see the vet but I want to be semi-prepared before I get there. This vet is wonderful with rats but I'm not sure how she is with pigs. And I could ask her but you know all vets will say they are capable. Anyway, they do not have any discharge...

  7. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Okay my vet said to give antibiotics to my rats with RI for one week. It has been one week. I do have a refill on the meds so I can continue if necessary. My question is since there are still some symptoms should I stop now or continue the meds. My vet said something vague like it's up to my...

    I was looking at my rat today and I noticed that one of her eyes was closed due to a coating of mucus that had dried and she had mucus coming out of her nose. What can I do to help fix this? Is there anything around the house I could give her that would help? Thanks in advance, AnimalLadyE
  14. Guinea Pig Discussion
    I have noticed lately that people are housing their guinea pig and rabbit together. This is something that should never be done. The first reaction to those who do house them together is, "but they get along fine". Maybe they do, that is not the issue. The issue is they have very different...

    August 24 we took one of our kitties, Sara to the vet for her vaccination & checkup. She'd hid from us when we took the other 5 a few days earlier. Someone had left 2 boxes of kittens on the vet's office doorstep with a total of 18 kittens in them. Several already had upper respiratory...

    My cat Napoleon has chronic upper respiratory infections. He has only had one really bad infection, which was when he was a kitten (I think all the kittens in the shelter had it). Now he gets a bit congested from time to time but never anything bad. The only thing that persists is his dry nose...
