Some pigs are just prone to bladder sludge/stones, and there's not a whole lot you can do about it. You can reduce the amount of dietary calcium, but that's not a guarantee. Some pigs will form stones less than week after stone removal surgery.

What exactly do you feed her? What kind of pellets and how many? What kind of hay? Which veggies, and how much of each?

If the mites are recurring, you can also do multiple treatments yourself to get rid of them.


You might also want to look over with info on interstitial cystitis (if you haven't already checked it).

She is eating Oxbow Essentials adult guinea pig pellets, timothy hay from small pet select, daily leaf lettuce with cucumbers and sometimes a small tomato. I try to get a citrus fruit in there too since she won't do the vitamin C tablets. Sometimes she gets different veggies like yellow or orange peppers - she doesn't like the green or red. The vet put her on Trimeth sulfa antibiotic 2x a day .4 ml. Also added Tramadol 2x per day keeping her on the Metacam at .1 ml once a day. Follow up via telephone this Friday.
