I is the no drip water bottle and yet everyday i am finding my self changing the cage it is getting to be very fustrating. I know it is my littlest piggie cause i watch her and she has water dripping all the way down her mouth making a mess. Also i am filling up their water bottle 4 times a day and majority of it is on the bedding please help i want to enjoy my pigges and not get frustrated.

You can put a brick underneath the bottle. Thats what I do, its good because it soaks up excess water and wears down their nails

Maybe you could try the Edstrom bottle? They are designed to eliminate dripping because they don't work by the vacuum principle like most bottles. They offer both 8 oz. and 16 oz. sizes now. http://www.agselect.com/ED/showdetl.cfm?DID=11&Product_ID=906

I trashed the plastic thing that you're supposed to connect the bottle to the cage with. If you use that, the bottle ends up vertical and drips. Instead, I lean the bottle 45 degrees back from the cage and hold it in position with a pipe cleaner (or string). Works like a charm. No drips anymore, even with my cheap bottles.
