    Diet: Re: Dieting and how to do it?

    I'm curious about this too. My pig looks so big sometimes but at other times looks normal or thin. She has a little bit of a belly but it doesn't seem to be fat, it's almost like extra skin. Maybe...

    Sad: Re: How do I tell if my pig is in pain?

    Is he moving around alright? If he's eating, drinking, playing around and moving alright I think you should be okay. That whimper could even be from being scared when he got stuck. I think you...

    Biting: Re: Nibbling too hard

    I'm sorry you feel that way. I guess my advice would be to just give it time and hopefully the kids will want to try again. What about on your chest - I tend to hold my pig on my chest, usually I'm...
  4. General: Re: First post, new GP mom with general questions

    Hello! My guinea pig loves anything she can hide in or run through. She especially loves a cardboard tube I got her from Drs Foster and Smith (who have a lot of great pet products/toys on their...

    Biting: Re: Nibbling too hard

    Do your pigs bite during lap time, when being picked up, or all of the above? You've gotten some great advice from other members. Also, as I'm sure you are aware, you need to be very careful when...

    In Heat: Re: Do longer nipples mean she is in heat?

    Thank you bpatters. Charlie has always had attitude issues, but it is hard to tell dominant behaviors since she is alone (I'll hopefully be getting a friend for her in the next month or two) but...

    In Heat: Do longer nipples mean she is in heat?

    Hello all,
    I've got a single sow and as I was holding her and doing my usual examination of her tonight (feeling for lumps, bumps, etc) I noticed that her nipples looked a bit longer than usual. ...

    Re: I love you, Sly. Goodbye, little bear.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I have been following your thread and rooting for Sly for the past few weeks. At least you can rest knowing that he is at peace now and not in any more pain.

    General: Re: Phat Ginger's Medical Thread

    Congratulations on the babies and I'm sorry about the loss of some of the piggies. I'm sorry to have doubted you, you were right! You should feel good knowing that you're such a good piggy mother...
  11. Behavior: Re: Are guinea pigs supposed to chew everything?

    It seems normal to me. My piggy is pretty good about only chewing on things that she is supposed to chew on (hay, food, chew toys, etc.) but sometimes she will chew on her hidey or the sides of her...
  12. Re: Hello! New to Guinea Pigs & Looking for Advice on Adopting New Cage Mate

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your piggy. You certainly seem like a devoted guinea pig mama. Have you checked out places online? Lots of people post on Craigslist and other sites about pets they...

    General: Re: Phat Ginger's Medical Thread

    She looks completely normal to me. My girl is bigger than that and there?s no chance she?s pregnant. I think a lot of guinea pigs are pear shaped or seem to be from some positions.
  14. Say What?: Re: Help, guinea pig is making a really weird noise?

    Thank you so much bpatters. She stopped after a bit and has eaten and played since then. I just heard that sound and panicked.
  15. Say What?: Re: Help, guinea pig is making a really weird noise?

    I?m hoping this works:

  16. Say What?: Help, guinea pig is making a really weird noise?

    She?s done it like 5 times in the past few minutes. She purrs when I pet her and doesn?t seem to be chocking or anything but the sound is really concerning me even though she seems fine. Any ideas...
  17. Skin Problems: Re: Guinea pig won't be picked up but still enjoys being petted?

    Thank you bpatters. I?m sure I?m just being paranoid, I just want to make sure she is healthy. I?ve been monitoring her weight and it has been the same. She lost some between Sunday and Monday but...

    Nutrition: Re: Over wieght piggies?

    Oh I'm sorry! Are they siblings, or did they say they were the same age? I know there are weight guides at the Guinea Lynx site that can help determine age, but if she's pregnant obviously she...
  19. Skin Problems: Re: Guinea pig won't be picked up but still enjoys being petted?

    Alright, I might be paranoid but I'm beginning to think maybe it wasn't mites. I was holding her today (she actually let me pick her up without fighting it, yay!) and petting her and as she was...
  20. Cleaning: Re: how to clean midwest cages/accessories after fungal?

    I've never had a guinea pig with fungal but I would throw the igloos, bottles and bowls in the dishwasher (if you have one) alone. The dishwasher sanitizes items it cleans. I won't comment on the...

    Nutrition: Re: Over wieght piggies?

    Pet stores are really bad at sexing guinea pigs. Because of this, there is probably a good chance that your pig could have gotten pregnant at the pet store. I'm not nearly an expert but maybe...

    Water: Re: Alternatives to Drippy Bottles?

    What about putting something like a washcloth under the bottle and replacing it when it is too wet?
    I have found some water bottles to be drippy as well. One solution I found that works well is...
  23. Skin Problems: Re: Guinea pig won't be picked up but still enjoys being petted?

    Thank you bpatters and spy9doc and everyone for answering my questions, as silly or clueless as they may seem.
    I bought and applied the Ivermectin this afternoon as I was told (just behind the...
  24. Skin Problems: Re: Guinea pig won't be picked up but still enjoys being petted?

    Thank you so much! So I just put it behind her ears? Will that get to the rest of her well enough? I know it shouldn?t be put anywhere where she could lick it off. Should I put it on the fleece...
  25. Skin Problems: Re: Guinea pig won't be picked up but still enjoys being petted?

    Thank you spy9doc. The store is closed for the night today but I will be picking it up tomorrow and may have more questions! I'm still not quite 100% sure if it is mites but it can't hurt to do it...
