    Re: Little Bear

    I've said this before. I highly doubt either Bruin, nor Little Bear knew love and kindness and the care of a proper home until you came along. And it's horrible how they came to make the journey to...

    General: Re: Pneumonia

    With proper care, she most likely will survive just fine.

    Baytril is hard on a pigs gut, and it's good to hear that you are giving her benebac. But she may also go off her food, and that's...

    General: Re: New pig owner here , any advice

    The very first, and most important thing I can give you a tip on is:

    Find an exotic vet for them. It's not really a question of IF they will need vet care, but when. You really don't want to...

    I am going to direct you to a thread I created several years ago, documenting my senior boy Sly's journey in managing malocclusion. Sly never really developed any drooling but another boy I had,...
  15. Weight: Re: Green gunky like vomit on guinea pig

    He needs a vet, ASAP. He needs a cavy savvy vet preferably with dental experience. NOT a small animal vet. There is a very good chance he's dealing with malocclusion, and the drool is from pain. ...
