  3. Medical Care: Re: I think my baby piggy just had a miscarriage, what now?

    If she is still bleeding I would take her for a check over by a good exotics vet.

    She shouldn't need any diet changes as she should already be getting a young guinea pig diet, which has the same...
  4. Genitals: Re: 2nd opinion on sexing GP for possible adoption

    Yes that guinea pig looks very distinctly male, I am very confident in saying that is a definite male from those images alone.

    Yes I have had a sow self barber while pregnant under my care. She did stop barbering after the pups were born, and it seemed to be caused by her disliking the sensations of the pups moving about...

    Hi everyone, I have found a commercial made cage available in Australia that meets the size requirements for a pair of guinea pigs. The cage is 140cm long, 70cm deep, meaning it is 0.98sq meters.

    In Heat: Re: How long?

    There is no way to get the behavior to stop without having her spayed. She is doing it because of the increased hormones and will not stop until the hormones do.

    In all honesty if you are waiting...

    If she was in with the male for at least 2 weeks the chances she is pregnant are high. It would be unlikely for her not to be pregnant because she would certainly had at least one heat cycle while in...

    Conditions: Re: What is going on with my piggie's butt?

    It looks like a cyst or abscess or tumor, possibly originating from the grease gland. It looks more likely to be an abscess or cyst to me that is starting to rupture open. A vet is in order for this,...

    Cage: Re: C&C vs Midwest for 3 pigs

    If you need to separate off the other male later he should have a 2x3 on his own. A pair of boars should ideally have a 2x5. That means the base cage would need to be a 2x8 to make that division...

    General: Re: Misc. Guinea Pig Questions!

    1. If you want boars you would be better off going for the 2x5 and 2x2 loft, and sticking strictly to a pair, boars don't do well in trios. If you want sows you can go for either a pair in the 2x4 or...
