    Re: What sex are my guinea pigs

    The photos aren't quite clear enough to be able to tell. However there are still ways you can find out even without us visually confirming.

    The easiest way to sex guinea pigs is to simply feel...

    Behavior: Re: Guinea Pig’s Hind Leg

    As he is a satin has he ever been evaluated for osteodystrophy?

    Generally impaction doesn't have any signs, aside from the obvious when you inspect the anal sac.

    Behavior: Re: Guinea Pig’s Hind Leg

    On a side note is pumpkin a satin guinea pig, or is the lighting in the photo giving his coat a deceptively bright shine?
  4. How Many: Re: Rescuing a Third Male - What's the best course of action?

    The chances of it working with all three boys together are very low, and there is the risk any introductions could go horribly wrong.

    Nails/Nail Trimming: Re: When to first trim young piggy's nails?

    I've always used the same nail trimmers for my adults and pup guinea pigs alike. The kind of nail trimmer I use is the scissor kind often sold for cats or puppies, similar to the one in this picture....

    Nails/Nail Trimming: Re: When to first trim young piggy's nails?

    I would normally give my very young guinea pigs a nail trim when there is about 1mm of white growth which would be about 2-3 months old, and I would just take the very tip off. I would do this not...

    General: Re: Is this ringworms?

    Yes it is just coconut oil, but you want the jar to say cold pressed on it. It might not be on the front it might be in the small print on the back.

    General: Re: Is this ringworms?

    Just to be clear, ringworm is a kind of fungal infection. Now it is possible that could be the start of a fungal infection, but it might not be. I personally wouldn't be rushing to the vet for this...
  10. Behavior: Re: Bonded Male Pair in Same Room With Female?

    Well over the years as I have had guinea pigs pass I have re-bonded my boys and girls with new same gendered cage mates, and I have almost always owned both boars and sow. With this set-up the boys...
  11. Behavior: Re: Bonded Male Pair in Same Room With Female?

    Pregnant: Re: Fancy's Medical Thread

    I personally wouldn't suggest going for the second x-ray. All it will do is confirm a number of pups, and with how young she is it that information doesn't really doesn't change anything.

    General: Re: Should I have my Guinea pig neutered?

    Personally none of my boars are neutered.

    I would only neuter a boar for one of two reasons. The first would be if you want the option to be able to house him with a sow in the future, the other...

    How Much?: Re: Veggies and pellets question

    If i recall correctly they are housed separately. The younger guinea pig is a boar who was originally mis-sexed as a girl, and the older one is a sow who is now under pregnancy watch.
