    C&C: Re: Amazon c&c grids

    Keep in mind with those mesh grids you will probably need to alter them somehow to be able to attach a water bottle.

    Diet: Re: Guinea pig Diet

    Lethals: Re: Baby sow Lethal?

    I would say she probably isn't a lethal white. She doesn't seem to have any of the classical signs, and it appears she has a line of pigment along the edge of her ears which would rule out her being...

    Hay: Re: Different hay cuttings

    When they cut the hay if the weather is right the grass will regrow and they will be able to cut again from the same crop. The difference is usually in the amount of stem and seed heads in the cuts....

    General: Re: Guinea Pig keeps peeing on himself?

    I would certainly want him to be evaluated by a vet if he were mine. I'd want him checked for things that could be causing him pain like arthritis, bladder stones, skeletal issues etc., as it is...

  10. Diet: Re: can changing hay/pellets result in weight loss?

    Once I had to change hay types simply due to a shortage of the type i usually feed meaning it simply wasn't available at the time. I usually feed oaten hay, but had to change to wheaten hay (the only...

    Fur: Re: Advice: Hard yellow fur under chin

    Looks like boar glue to me (guinea pig ejaculate). It should feel quite hard and rubbery. Leave it be and he will get off on his own eventually or the fur will grow out.

    Fleece: Re: How do I stop fleece digging piggies?

    I have several fleece burrowers. The only thing I have found to stop them burrowing under the cage lining fleece, aside from a piggy bed spread, is to give them what they want in a way that isn't so...

    Conditions: Re: Moving Cross Country, Pig Status Declining

    If her mother is the one driving is it possible for her to sit in the back of the car with them next to her? The most concerning thing is the lack of poops.

    If so she might be able to take steps...
  16. Adopting: Re: What to do with new pigs (never added before)

    General: Re: Need tips for my first Guinea Pig

    First things first. Hay. Get it some hay ASAP. That is by far the most important thing in their diet and should make up 90% of what they eat in a day.

  19. Diet: Re: Am I giving my Guinea pigs the correct diet?

    For the veggies be careful with cilantro and fennel, they are quite high in calcium. A vegetable that you can feed daily that you aren't currently feeding is zucchini.

    Size: Re: Is The Size too Small/

    Don't take their word it is 1 square metre without actually seeing it, or getting real measurements. "About 1 square meter" is vague enough that I wouldn't trust it.
