    Adopt vs. Buy: Re: Impulse buyers, stupid questions, etc

    Today, Petsmart had a half off sale on live animals for black friday. Idk how many sold and I didn't have to see a lot of it. I also got an old coworker to adopt an abandoned ham that had been at...

    Sick: Re: Chico and Amigo's med thread

    Okay to update, we did NOT go to the vet. I saw blood here and there in their beds for a while after posting, but I haven't seen any since last week. There isn't any blood on their new fleece. So for...
  4. Re: These people want to buy 10 diffrent types of animals and will trade produced rab

    Old post but I'll bring up - in my area, we have someone constantly posting about taking in fish, reptiles, etc. Supposedly they run a rescue. Generally, I'm skeptical of most craigslist ads.
  5. Re: Any advice on grieving and how to cope with guilt?

    I wouldn't worry about it. I post here, the UK gpig forum, and occasionally on Reddit. But that sub is mostly cute pix, so asking questions results in posts being lost.
  6. Re: Any advice on grieving and how to cope with guilt?

    I already replied to the reddit post, but you did fine adopting again so soon. When my senior pig died in October, I went out the next day and adopted a new baby from the animal shelter. You did all...

    Here they are together. I kept forgetting for a few weeks that the vet had sent us a sympathy card for Little Bear. I used my work's cremation service and they have done such a nice job with...
  8. Behavior: Re: Pig is like catatonic. also not really eating

    Gpigs are as expensive as other pets. Maybe even more so. Between 6 pigs since July 2020, I have probably spent $3000 on medical bills. Maybe a little bit more. Heart failure, eye removal surgery...

    Re: Little Bear

    Since Bruin's post is too old to add to...it is almost a year since he died. A year since I took them in, and went thru my most harrowing pet journey. I experienced so many firsts with these two...

    Adopting: Re: Should I adopt on Craigslist?

    As many probably know, my experience is completely different...I have adopted guinea pigs and a hamster from 3 different city animal shelters and was not offered the same things that would offered to...
  11. Behavior: Re: Pig is like catatonic. also not really eating

    Well this IS a provegetarian forum and I am a vegan since 2014. Animals and humans are equal and they all deserve the same treatment. Cat, dog, gpig, etc...they all have the same basic rights and...
  12. Behavior: Re: Pig is like catatonic. also not really eating

    First, you take a lot of risks buying a petstore pig. You can look up PETA videos on what the conditions on like for where pet store animals come from. Pet store animals can have a lot going on for...

    Adopting: Re: Should I adopt on Craigslist?

    There's nothing wrong with buying from Craigslist, but I would be careful with who you buy from and be prepared for any issues. In other words, I am automatically skeptical about anyone selling...
  14. Re: Unknowingly Adopted A Pregnant Guinea Pig (Any Advice is Welcome)

    It sounds like you have everything squared away and you even have a reliable vet nearby. I would have everything ready to go just in case you do have to rush to the vet. Hopefully all goes well.

    Skin Problems: Re: Maple Leaf's skin troubles

    Does anyone know how long it should take his hair to regrow? The areas that were scabby and bloody are now just normal bald skin (aside from a bit of scabs on his chin). You can't visibly see the...

    Behavior: Re: Using The Loft As A Toilet

    There's really no way to make her stop. I recommend getting several fleece liners for that area that you can switch out daily or however often. I use "potty pads" in my boys' houses, which are...

    Fur: Re: Guinea pig mites

    Do this. If it's a chain like petsmart or petco, they will treat the pig. At Petsmart, the pig is treated in store til it's better. Pigs with issues like this are far too common because the suppliers...
