    Fleece: Re: Fleece hay bag

    Cute! Is it machine washable?
  2. General: Re: Books To Read and Learn About Guinea Pigs

    I love to read and learn too, but the main problem is that it's hard to find up-to-date information in books. The book mentioned was published in 2003, which is a little older than where I'd want to...
  3. Aggression: Re: Im completely lost with my guinea pigs

    Boars are best kept in pairs. Many members here will attest that 3 or more boars living together as a group almost never works out; they're just too territorial. Also, your cage is not big enough...

    Genitals: Re: Help determining gender of piggie

    Most definitely a male
  5. Aggression: Re: Im completely lost with my guinea pigs

    How many guinea pigs do you have? What are their ages and genders? What are the dimensions of the cage (ie how many inches by how many inches is the floor of the cage)?
  6. Hay: Re: Ok to abruptly switch from Kaytee to Oxbow?

    Hay is hay no matter which company cut and bagged the stuff, so yes! It's quite alright to just switch straight to the oxbow hay. It's only with food pellets that you want to transition from the old...

    Not Eating: Re: Leo's medical thread

    I'm so sorry to hear about Leo Guinea Pig Papa I can't believe you're having to deal with a sick piggie yet AGAIN in such a short time span. It's so exhausting -- body and soul -- when our little...

    Bonding: Question about re-introductions

    I've got a 3-day block off work coming up here starting Wednesday, and I've decided to try reintroducing Casper and Poptart in my kitchen. Their cage is a C&C with fleece on top of wood pellets. My...

    Hay: Re: All living things market medley

    Many of us on this forum have learned to buy hay in bulk from online hay suppliers. Small Pet Select is a favorite, as is Kleenmama's Hayloft. Other suppliers you can check out are Oxbow, American...
  10. Conditions: Re: Casper's Medical Thread: lesion on testicle

    Update on Casper: Seems to be fully healed! :) He had a little bit of crusty, scabby stuff show up earlier this week around the incision, but no signs of infection, so I assume it's just scabs from...

    Possibly Pregnant: Re: HELP my piggy is likely pregnant and getting close to time. No clue what to do!

    That picture certainly looks pretty female to me. However, a hard ridge anterior to the pelvic area could certainly be a penis. Male pups' testes don't typically drop until they are a few months...

    Play: Re: Where To Get A Playpen?

    If you have extra grids available from building a c&c cage, you can ziptie the grids together accordion-style and use a vinyl tablecloth to cover the floor. That's what I've always done for my pigs....
  13. Conditions: Re: Casper's Medical Thread: lesion on testicle

    Update on Casper: Surgery was last Friday and he's looking great! He's not in any pain, happily popping and playing and eating his food well. Incisions look good; I've been super-diligent about...
  14. Conditions: Re: Casper's Medical Thread: lesion on testicle

    Thanks so much for the advice! spy9doc

    The vet did use glue. It's nice to know that it will heal more quickly that way. I'll try shrinking his end of the cage a little bit, but honestly, this was...
  15. Conditions: Re: Casper's Medical Thread: lesion on testicle

    I just finished doing a bed change for the pigs and Casper is running laps around his half of the cage. (They love a fresh, clean bed!) Should I shrink Casper's available space to try and limit...
  16. Conditions: Re: Casper's Medical Thread: lesion on testicle

    An update: Casper's surgery was yesterday and he seems to be doing really well! When I picked him up at the vet, he was already awake, alert, and moving around. His appetite's maybe a little off,...
  17. Conditions: Re: Casper's Medical Thread: lesion on testicle

    He's maybe 5 months at the oldest.

    I should clarify: I've been referring to it as an "abscess" because I don't have any experience with skin conditions, and to me, it superficially appears to be...
  18. Conditions: Casper's Medical Thread: lesion on testicle

    Well, I've had my little men 2 months and we've already run into our first medical issue.

    Last Thursday, I noticed that Casper (formerly Avery) was having significant redness and a little swelling...
  19. Level of Effort: Re: How much does good guinea pig care REALLY cost per month/year?

    One of the reasons you'll see such a wide range of estimates is that different people may have different opportunities available to reduce their costs. For example, some people may be able to grow...

    Adopting: Re: I got new pigs, everybody!

    One more question I forgot: At their age (estimated 2-3 months) how much of pellets should I be feeding? Is it still 2 Tbs per pig per day?

    Update: Introductions yesterday went better than I could have hoped! I saw no aggressive behavior the first four hours and most of that time was spent running laps, popping, and playing. They...

    Adopting: Re: I got new pigs, everybody!

    Adopting: Re: I got new pigs, everybody!

    Andrew weighs 490 grams tonight and Avery weighs 577 grams. It surprised me because I initially thought that Avery was the smaller of the two. Both have those tiny, sharp little cat claws that are...

    Adopting: Re: I got new pigs, everybody!

    I haven't actually weighed them yet, although that would have been a great thing to do when I took them out of their carriers to put in the cages. :P I'll weigh them soon, but both are quite small...
