  1. Newborn Pups: Re: Baby developing slowly, nursing constantly

    As long as he's gaining, that's a good thing. Keep us posted on how he's doing.
  2. Weight: Re: What scales can I use to weigh my guinea pigs?

    Either will be fine.
  3. General: Re: Is my guinea pig sneezing or expelling air?

    Your indicators that he's doing ok are a stable weight, regular peeing and pooping, and normal activity. Short of an injury, skin condition, or obvious illness, you can usually watch anything odd...

    What breed?: Re: What breed are my new girls?

    700-900 grams is WAY low for normal sow weight. They come from old textbooks based on lab animals, not pets. Every sow I had weighed just under or over 1300 grams, and both I and the vet thought...

    How Much?: Re: Veggies and pellets question

    I'd just put the veggies down and let them eat. There's not enough difference in age to worry about separating meals for them.
  6. Newborn Pups: Re: Baby developing slowly, nursing constantly

    He sounds like he might be somewhat developmentally delayed, but it's hard to know. Does he seem to move normally? Can you post a picture of his eyes?

    Four grams difference from another pup...

    Re: Accidental possible pregnant guinea pig

    Guinealearner1, STOP asking every poster if they think your pig is pregnant. It's been explained to you by more than one person that there's no way for us to be sure from a picture whether or not...

    Pellets: Re: Piggy hates pellets?

    You'd have to order KMS Hayloft online, either from KMS or Amazon. Oxbow you might find locally.

    Pellets: Re: Piggy hates pellets?

    A good quality pellet makes sure that a guinea pig has all the vitamins and minerals it needs. It takes quite a bit of effort to make sure they get those things if they're not eating pellets.

    C&C Alternatives: Re: Dog exercise pen as a cage?

    I think that's safe, but if you wind up with bar-chewers, you need to keep them from doing it because of the danger of mouth injuries. Most people cover the inside of the cage with plexiglass up to...
  12. Possibly Pregnant: Re: Accidental possible pregnancy in my guinea pig

    Re: Accidental possible pregnant guinea pig

    We can't guess from a picture. Her size depends to a great degree on how many pups there are. A pig with one pup may only barely look pregnant, while one with several pups will be enormous.

    Did...

    Lump: Re: Cancer?

    See http://www.guinealynx.info/fungus.html for the creams that are safe to use. Apply sparingly with a q-tip and rub it in well so she doesn't lick any off her nose. If it doesn't improve within a...

    Re: Accidental possible pregnant guinea pig

    I'd say she's definitely pregnant, and more than 4 weeks. She'd barely show at 4 weeks, if at all.

    Lump: Re: Cancer?

    Not Eating: Re: Not eating for 5 weeks, had 2 dentals

    Is there another exotic vet around? I'd want a second opinion, I think. Not only is her problem not getting better, but Baytril is not usually given as an injection because it can cause sterile...

    C&C: Re: Amazon c&c grids

    Lump: Re: Cancer?

    An odor is NOT usually a sign of cancer, but of infection.

    Where exactly is the lump? Does it appear to be painful if you touch it or push on it?
