    Diet: Re: Food and calcium deposits

    I had been feeding Oxbow Natural Science as well and getting white calcium deposits. I tried fiddling with the veggies but didn't have much luck there either. I cut back the pellets but still found...

    Re: Guinea pig with blood in urine

    He definitely needs Baytril or Bactrim. My vet charged around 40$ for 4 weeks of Baytril, so I don't think it's that expensive to get just the antibiotic. The vet would likely bill somewhere in the...

    Hay: Oxbow Organic Meadow Grass Hay

    Just wondering if anyone else has tried offering Oxbow's Organic Meadow Grass to their guinea pigs. Oxbow only has it in the small bags, so it's not their main hay (they get unlimited orchard grass)...

    Joy: Re: Guinea Pigs as Stress Relievers

    My boyfriend was feeling randomly mopey and didn't feel like going to work one morning. I finally grabbed one of our guinea pigs and came in carrying her. The fur on her cheeks was floofed up,...
  5. Grooming: Re: Ideas on encouraging a pair of guinea pigs to groom each other?

    That's very sweet that Kora grooms Lady when she's scared! Thanks for the info on your piggies. Tulip seems more annoyed with Paloma when she gets scared, unfortunately. And no, I wouldn't...
  6. Grooming: Re: Ideas on encouraging a pair of guinea pigs to groom each other?

    Aww, very cute! I'd love it if my two girls cuddled, but it's okay that they don't. They're a lot of fun to watch exploring and investigating things.

    Aw well, good to know. Thanks for the responses!
  8. Grooming: Ideas on encouraging a pair of guinea pigs to groom each other?

    I guess I could have also put this question under bonding, but they get along fine so grooming seemed a slightly better match.

    I have a pair of females that get alone fine (the occasional rumble...
  9. Re: Just adopted two "super" cavies (super as in BIG)

    I liked it too--I thought it would be fun to have a Spanish name, since her "breed" is from Peru. Paloma is supposed to mean dove or pigeon, which for some reason works for me--she's skittish and...
  10. Re: Just adopted two "super" cavies (super as in BIG)

    They're supposedly from Peru, bred for meat. They've been showing up in California mainly, especially Southern California, but I read a few posts on Guinea Lynx from people that were in British...
  11. Re: Just adopted two "super" cavies (super as in BIG)

    Thanks for the info; glad to find someone else who has owned them. Mine aren't polydactyl, so I'll just have to hope that indicates they aren't too inbred. I was expecting heart problems were a...
  12. Re: Just adopted two "super" cavies (super as in BIG)

    I'm assuming she's a full "cuy"--but she does have a little crest going on so it's possible she has another breed in her. I'm just praying they won't have serious health problems later in life. ...
  13. Re: Just adopted two "super" cavies (super as in BIG)

    Here's pictures--haven't yet got one of them together. And yes, I did adopt from CavyHouse! I renamed Paloma--she used to be called Twinkletoes.

  14. Just adopted two "super" cavies (super as in BIG)

    Hi everyone. I'm new to cavy ownership and just adopted a pair of big guinea pigs--the larger one, we're calling her Paloma, is over 2 kg. I'm a little annoyed I can't find a real breed name for...
