    Sick: Re: Chico and Amigo's med thread

    They don't look like urine spots to me, either. Have you checked his anal sac and penis sheath to make sure there hasn't been a hay poke?

    Teeth: Re: Top teeth short to the gums

    Guinea pig teeth can fall out, usually because of an injury (a fall, biting the cage bars, whatever). They usually grow back very quickly. You need to watch to make sure they ARE growing back,...
  4. Hair Loss: Re: 1 piggie out of 8 have a V spot on her back

    Using the ivermectin on guinea pigs is fine. It's used on all sorts of animals, and even people on occasion.
  5. Hair Loss: Re: 1 piggie out of 8 have a V spot on her back

    Behind the ear is just fine. The liquid kind can be given either way.

    And if you can get the 1% stuff, it's the easiest to use. The cost of ivermectin has just gone through the roof, and Amazon...

    Genitals: Re: Sexing Guinea Pig

    I'm not sure, either. The Y shape looks like a female, but those bumps on either side look mighty much like testicles.


    If it's a male, you should be able to feel the penis bone by putting your...

    Conditions: Re: Young Guinea Pig Not Growing

    Haven't you ever seen two kids the same age who were very different sizes? Even in the same family? Why should guinea pigs all be the same?

    The head tilt is worth investigating, as it could be...

    Conditions: Re: Is this a cataract?

    Could be. But also see http://www.guinealynx.info/eyes.html and see if there's more info there for you. Guinea pigs have a couple of eye conditions that start with a small white dot.

    Cage: Re: Where are the doors?

    Yes, but these forums are public and there are bots that harvest numbers from plain text posts. It's a little harder to do on a contact page.

    Also, I'm pretty sure Teresa would prefer to be...
  10. Signs: Re: How will I know she's going into labor- day 64 today.

    They'll come when they come. Some sows will have only a little separation for a little while and then deliver. Others will have quite wide separation for several days before the pups come. The...

    Cage: Re: Where are the doors?

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that's not really large enough for two adult pigs. You really need at least a 2x4, and even larger is better.

    Not Eating: Re: Pig seems to have trouble eating

    If they're haired pigs, they'd probably enjoy it even cooler.
  14. Bonding: Re: Is It Too Late To Get Another Guinea Pig?

    Honestly? I wouldn't put another pig with an eight-year-old that has been alone all her life. I know they do better in pairs, but eight is a very senior pig, and the stress of another pig might be...

    Pellets: Re: Switching from baby to adult pellets

    I'd mix them until the alfalfa pellets are gone. That way you'll still cut down on the calcium intake and the pellets won't be wasted.
  17. Signs: Re: How will I know she's going into labor- day 64 today.

    The pups will come when they come, sort of like human babies. Some early, some late, some right on time.

    It's normal for the urine of pup to be very white and milky. Don't worry about it.

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    Could also be due to something the pig ate. I'd keep an eye on it for sure.
  21. Introductions: Re: Quick Introductions (After Death of Cagemate)

    Put something in the cage that breaks up the lines of sight so that Nibbler isn't always available to Owlie. It can be fleece forests, or temporary hideys (upside down boxes with the ends cut out,...
  22. Chat Re: Sister and reasons why you should not get kids a guinea pig.

    Rosiethecutepig, no doubt. But you have no idea how irritating it is to give clear instructions, more than once, and then not have the original poster even read them. Being an admin or a mod for...

    It's fine to leave it, but I gave you the instructions on how to do it TWICE, and you obviously didn't read the posts. If someone's going to take the time to reply to you, please have the courtesy...
