    Update for Chunky Monkey:

    His weight has slid backward a bit the last couple of days, but more or less stable. It was 1445 Saturday morning, but back to 1416 today.

    I have discovered that he...

  4. Re: help Problems training my guinea pig to potty train

    Welcome to the forum!

    Short answer? You can't potty train guinea pigs. If you're very, very lucky they will do most of their business in one place and you can set something up there to catch the...

    Morning update:

    Punkin was an active boy last night. Played with his brother for 2-3 hours, which was surprising. I changed the hay yesterday and added some beautiful Orchard Grass, and he was...

    Sadly, no. There's been no real change. His weight is holding stable, this morning was 1438 grams. He has an appointment with the vet Monday at 5pm. At that time I am going to insist the xrays be...

    Today's update:

    Not much new to report today. I had to leave early this morning so I didn't get to watch him right after his 6am feeding. I gave him his pepper slice and I know he sat and worried...

    How Many: Re: Cage mate passed, get another?

    I'm so sorry to hear of Scamp's passing. May she rest in peace.

    Peeve's age obviously has to be taken into account, and what you would do for a cage mate does also. A new cage mate would likely...

    I am so sorry you lost your little fella. I can totally relate to your emotional state after losing such a beloved little friend.

    As bpatters has said, it was more than likely just old age and...

    Punkin stopped eating a week ago. Being on the Baytril now is finally gotten him feeling well enough that he is starting to eat on his own again. As we speak hes had a little parsley, and hes...

    I've seen some more improvements today. He seems to be taking in more hay, but not really eating anything else on his own. The Baytril may be partly to blame for that, we just don't know. He also...

    There are exactly two exotic vets in Niagara. Dr Ker is one. I was actually thinking about Guelph, and if we don't get this sorted is short order I'm going to ask him to do exactly that. I'm sure he...

    It was mentioned as a possibility this morning, but I've come to find out our vet doesn't have an x-ray machine. He'd have to take Punkin elsewhere to do the x-rays. Our vet is currently building a...

    Re: New owner, tons of questions!

    No, not even close. Two boars really need at minimum 2x5, and the bigger the better. I realize not everyone can do this, but my 2 boars have a cage and attached pen that is 4x7

    Re: New owner, tons of questions!

    Groups of 3 boars virtually never work out, and knowing this I still tried myself and failed. You absolute best option is two have two pairs, in two separate, large cages.

    Repurposed furniture just doesn't provide enough room for piggies. They need wide, flat space to run and exercise, and even though you can add a loft to an existing C and C cage, the extra levels...
