  1. Dark urine?

    I have two male guinea pigs both a little over a year old, today I noticed dark orangeish brown urine on the white plastic floor part of their cage where their food bowl is. I wiped it up with a paper towel and it does not look like blood to me. Last night and this morning they had fresh Swiss chard and this vegetable is new for them so I was not sure if that could have caused the color of this urine? Some of the leaves of Swiss chard were dark purple and some were green so I thought maybe it could ...

She is now back with Petco, they are gonna fix her up (URI). But this isn't about Pip, ...
  4. Paper bedding

    Hi everyone, I was looking to see if anyone had any input on where I can get non bleached paper bedding? I ordered some from chewy and from small pet select, which I am happy with but for how big my guineas cage is I have to buy 3 or 4 bags and it's expensive per bag :/ I got a bundle off of small pet select of food, hay and bedding which was a great deal for all of that but the bedding was just a small bag. I was in the process of shredding up a bunch of cardboard to make bedding for them but then ...
