  1. Lethargy: Re: 7 or 8 year old guinea pig eating and drinking, but puffed up in a corner and wea

    Hi folks! He's doing a lot better! Turns out he had stasis, so the force feeding every 2 hours was exactly what he needed. We've got him on a motility aid (metoclopramide) and benebac, but the vet...
  2. Lethargy: Re: 7 or 8 year old guinea pig eating and drinking, but puffed up in a corner and wea

    Hello! Op here. Just to be clear for y'all, I know to only bring him to an exotics vet, I know that he'll need a lot of help to bounce back, and I am more than willing to do what it takes (ie waking...
  3. Lethargy: Re: 7 or 8 year old guinea pig eating and drinking, but puffed up in a corner and wea

    Like I mentioned in my post, there is no emergency exotic vet within 5 hours of where I am and I'll be bringing him in tomorrow to the regular, which here in the Midwest means daytime, vet in my...
  4. Lethargy: 7 or 8 year old guinea pig eating and drinking, but puffed up in a corner and weak

    I accepted a guinea pig a week ago from a family that was moving out after the kids got "bored of it." I took him to the vet and besides being underweight (which we're working on), the vet said he...

    Lump: Re: Help I found a lump on my piggies belly.

    What we want is for her to get proper vet care so you'll know whether or not it's cancer, a fatty tumor, or something else. If it's cancer, then pain management and/ or euthanasia would be humane....

    Lump: Re: Help I found a lump on my piggies belly.

    I second both batters and pigmommy89. Just letting her suffer and die because you don't want to give her up to someone who can provide the needed medical care is, to be frank, cruel. If you cannot...

    Sick: Re: my guinea pig limping

    Did he say why she was limping? I'm sorry the vet didn't seem very helpful! We strongly recommend cavy-savvy exotics vets because regular vets don't really know what's up with cavies. Here's a good...

    Bonding: Re: Older boars and younger boars?

    Hello again! I was just wondering how old/ big the babies should be before I try and introduce them to my older boars? Obviously I'm going to wait until the quarantine period is over, but after that?...

    Sick: Re: my guinea pig limping

    That does sound like there might have been some injury. It could either be the leg itself, or something might be injured from the birthing process. I would get her to a cavy-savvy exotics vet to get...
  12. Behavior: Re: Guinea pig acting weird when I scratch his back

    My boar did that as well! To me, it seemed he didn't like it and was doing the piggy "reprimand". Most piggies don't like their backs being scratched, so that's also normal. :)

    Re: Hello from TX :)

    Hello LightSeeker, and welcome!

    2x4 may be big enough if you're getting sows. However, two boars need at least 2x5, if not more.

    For the nook, most pigs prefer their food on the same level. In...

    Grooming: Re: Long-haired abbys

    Thanks! Can you link to something similar to what you use in terms of "clippers"? There are so many ways to remove hair that I want to be sure I'm getting the right one lol.

    Grooming: Long-haired abbys

    Hello!

    I recently rescued two long-haired abbys (I knew one of the responding officers to a very sad drug overdose situation, and he came out with two baby guinea pigs so they're mine now), but...

    Lump: Re: Help I found a lump on my piggies belly.

    What are the reasons you can't get her to the vet? If there's really no way you can get your guinea pig to a cavy-savvy exotics vet, then it may be time to contact someone who can provide her with...

    Re: She bites me

    Sure thing! Apparently pushing their head down shows that you're top bun. They also said that it may take a while, but she should stop nibbling!

    Infection: Re: Mites and Fungal Patches

    Happy to help! And I'm glad to hear Peaches is doing well! I know how hard it can be to be patient. It definitely doesn't help that they're so darn cute and we just want them to be better already lol!
  22. C&C: Re: My cage is too small! I need a new cage!

    I second wheekermommy! I would definitely encourage at least 2x5 since boars need a LOT of space to get away from each other, the little stinkers lol.
