View Full Version : My pigs needs new home (Philippines)

02-29-04, 04:30 am
3 boars and 2 sows.

I wish I could say I would adopt them, but 1 is enough for me to handle right now with the hay and pellet problems.

Maybe I could adopt 1 sow... but it's probably not good to spilt them up, I don't know.

I was thinking of asking you too. But then I'm having second thoughts of giving my pigs away.

02-29-04, 11:48 pm
Hehe =) So why did you decide you wanted to put a few of your piggies up for adoption? You have 9 piggys in total don't you? That must quite a big responciblity!

I think our piggys are rather fortunate to have us as owners here really. We care about our piggys. I sometimes dread to think what happens to the other piggys here that are bought by other people. I doubt they would go out of their way to get hay etc. It seems most people here think Guinea pigs are just big hamsters. When I first got my piggy I only got a 50cm wide cage and a woman asked me why I got such a BIG cage!? BIG? It was far too small for my piggy!

Actually I'm fine with nine. It's no hassle. Even before we thought of giving them when we found out that one of pig is pregnant. Like what you said, I doubt that people would would go as far as what I did with my other pigs. I think no people would go to the vet (or even bother to find an excotic vet) to treat their piggies. Or spend much on their pellets, bedding, veggies, hay (i'm still looking) Or even research on the net on how you would take care of the pigs.

I thought of giving them because two of my pigs are pregnant (I know, my mistake). But then I'm finding ways to reduce the expenses. Right now, I'm using towel for bedding (reusable. so that I won't buy bedding anymore), I'm starting to plant grass on my little pot (so far its surviving) and with that I don't have to buy much on the veggies. So the only thing that I have to buy is pellets and their veggies and other needs (like vitamin c).

(sorry, i didn't realize it's that long already)

Wow, well I certainly admire you for looking after all those piggies =) Because personally I think I can only handle 2 at most. I worry about the expensive if I had more than 1 or 2 piggies. I want to give the best care to the one I already have, if you see what I mean.

I know exactly where you're coming from about people here not bothering with vets etc etc. For expensive reasons or whatever. People treat animals pretty badly, generally speaking. The rich seem to be mostly the only ones that treat their animals in a more "part of the family" kind of way. But I'm not rich and I doubt you are either. If it meant I didn't eat to look after my piggies I would (stupid eh?). I donno... I believe every creature on the earth deserves to be treated well.

I also find cheaper ways to care for my piggy. I use old newpapers for floor lining and shredded newpaper and rags. I do use vit C suppliment my piggies water bottle, but when that fails I give her 1/2 a tomato a day since it's high in vit C.

What I find ridiculous is they sell Guinea pigs here but don't sell the things to accommidate them. Hay, pellets, Aspen wood shavings vit C? Silly. But of course I doubt if they stocked those things it would make them much money, so they don't.

I think we deserve an award! lol. Oh well, done moaning now hehe.

(Sorry, long too hehe)

Taking care of two gps have no difference in taking care of one. Though of course you have divided attention for the two.

I don't think doing something for your pigs is stupid. I mean you have invested so much emotion with your pigs and doing as such isn't stupid. I admire you too for greatly taking care of you pet. You're right. All living creatures here deserves the right treatment.

They don't have the stuff here in the Philiippines for gps because they're not really popular here and is not that educated about them (especially the pet stores)

Cheers for the both of us, Astrantia :)

03-01-04, 07:10 am
Yep! Yeah for us! =D I understand them not being popular here, but I believe if they sell the guinea pigs, they should sell the supplies too.

How... I know this isn't in the right forum and it's going a little off subject... but where is it that you are getting your pellets now? Or would you prefer I e-mail you about that? =)

I just wanted you both to know that I am sorry if I was out of line with my earlier posts in the bedding section - i was totally unaware of the lack of supplies in the Phillipines and it is not my place to judge anyone. Please forginve me and accept my apologies. I was way wrong and truly didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings and come across as a know it all because I am not.

Again, I am sorry.

no problem theres always misunderstandings on forums :)

Hi, it seems that alot of guinea pig owners are looking for hay.

I've been looking for Aspen bedding but alas, there's none here in the Philippines.

I have found hay though if you guys are interested. There's this petshop over at SM north, the Under The Sea petshop, here's some contact info if you are interested:

3rd level SM City North Ave., cor. Edsa, Pag-asa 1 Quezon City

Tel: 925-3525
Email: [email protected]

They sell it by 1 kg for around P200+
I'm not sure what kind of hay it is though (timothy or alfalfa). A friend of mine bought some of her rabbits and they seem to like it.
That petshop is pretty good, well-stocked and have lots of equipment and toys for various animals.

And just in case you're wondering, no I don't work for them. :D
I'm just an avid pet-owner.
Hope I helped you guys out with your hay problems.

The unofficial spokesperson LOL you know the wendys commercials

04-13-04, 12:33 am
I've referred a number of my friends there already, I think I should demand a discount from the store! ;)

And errrr, can't really relate to the "wendy's commercial" comment because we don't have those here in Manila.

04-13-04, 09:41 am
That's ok MOM TO CUJO. Sometimes you really can't avoid to do things like that. I'm also guilty of doing that. But at least you/we're sorry. No worries.

SCREAMINGFLEA. I heard that too about the hay in Under the Sea. A piggie owner shared that to me. Thanks for the contact though. I still have to check out that store.

04-13-04, 12:05 pm
Well in the Wendys commercial they have this guy with a microphone going around spreading the news about wendys Salads and stuff right and they ask if hes a wendys spokesman and he says well unofficially so there ya have it lol.

03-27-05, 12:16 pm

03-29-05, 02:13 pm
Don't be rude, threads often get a bit off-track.

03-29-05, 02:29 pm

Who are you to judge?

Slap Maxwell
04-18-05, 07:04 pm
I am not judging I am stating a fact. Once again, grow up.

04-18-05, 07:21 pm
How about you grow up and stop going to the administraters saying that i was talking about ciggerets

Slap Maxwell
04-18-05, 07:22 pm
Why? So you can be rude and cause unneeded stress on the site? I don't think so.

04-18-05, 07:24 pm
Hey i reckon this site is goood its just people like you who are rude and keep responding to 1 year old threads

Louis, you responded to the post that was almost half a month old.

04-18-05, 09:54 pm
Stop it, Louis. I for one am extremely tired of your inappropriate posts and your provocative rudeness. Your punctuation and spelling are also quite grating. You have already been warned about your behavior.

I want to adopt a sow! Is anybody here has one sow that lacks care/attention? I always admire the gp's in the Under The Sea petshop. SM North is just beside our school, Quezon City Science High School. But buying GP's from petshops are discouraged by most of the GP lovers.. anyone who wants to let his/her sow to be adopted by me? I will take care of it. I am now saving money to buy a pair GP and the supplies they need.

08-15-06, 10:01 am
I can't help you esmerando, but good luck in adopting a guinea pig. As for Louis and Slap, GROW UP!!! YOU ARE ADULTS!!!! BEHAVE THAT WAY!!! It doesn't matter who said what or when somebody responded to a post. Think about the big picture. Does this really matter?

08-15-06, 10:47 am
This thread is over 2 months old (last post) and before that, the original discussion is over 2 years old.

It's a little late to be wishing someone luck and yelling at members for an old disagreement.

Please do not resurrect old posts.

08-15-06, 11:30 am
I am sorry. I did not know how old the thread was. Apologies!!!

08-15-06, 11:58 am
O, how do I make a page like this one to ask a question? Please help!!!!

08-17-06, 03:39 pm
please stop sending me impactions. I have already gotten 2 for this. I did not know how old the thread was. SORRY!

Please read the dates on the upper left corner of a post before responding. The person who started this thread started it over 3 years ago. I'm sure these pigs are no longer available.
