What's New?

We haven't any new piggies lately and I haven't posted some pics, but I thought I would tell a story about one of our males. His name is Cookie Dough, and a week after we got him, he was in the boys' cage and his eye was all white and gooey. YIKES!

We took him to the vet and they said it was so infected that we needed to have it removed. Needless to say I wasn't exactly sure it did need to be removed but I thought they know best, right? I did read online that sometimes with a lot of treatment it might be ok.

We didn't have the money to get his eye removed just yet, and they gave us antibiotics to help the infection but said to come back in a few days.

After a few days we saw that his eye was getting better and guess what, now two weeks later just after he ran out of antibiotics he can SEE! His eye is great, its beautiful just like the other one and he is awesome.

I love this guinea pig. He sits right at his cage waiting to get pet through the cage without sniffing and nibbling my finger. He is such a sweetie and I'm so glad he came to us. Unfortunately he will have to find a home, but the new owners will love him, I promise. Check him out- Cookie Dough!
