    Hair Loss: Re: Guinea pig has bald patches. Help.

    Ovarian cysts can't be treated at home. And roads aren't closed due to the pandemic.

    I know it's tough when you are still a kid and don't have much money. But the health of your pigs is your...

    Feet: Re: Pododermatitis

    If you use epsom salts, be very careful not to let the pig ingest any of it, and rinse and dry the feet carefully after you're done. An upside down bottle cap makes a good piggy foot bath.

    Hair Loss: Re: Guinea pig has bald patches. Help.

    It's definitely not ringworm, and it's almost certainly not mites. Do they scratch a lot?

    That hair loss pattern is classic for ovarian cysts, and they do need a vet visit.

    Re: Display problems

    Does it do this on other sites or just on GPC?

    If only on GPC, the only other thing I can think of to check is whether you've enlarged the display. If you can put your finger on it and slide it...

    What app do you use to view this site?

    I'd close everything possible, delete that app and reinstall it, and then try again.

    Injury: Re: Chippy Eye Removal

    I'm sorry he's having such problems.

    The guinea pigs I know of who've had eye removal have all done well. I'm hoping for the same for Chippy.
  7. Size: Re: How Many Piggies Can Be Housed in here?

    Probably more than you can afford vet care for. Theoretically you can put 8-10 pigs in there, but that can be a very expensive proposition.

    Also, I do hope that's an inside enclosure, as pigs...

  9. Behavior: Re: how far away do I need to keep visiting guineapigs?

    I don't think there's any way to know what will happen if they're kept in the same room. It may all be fine. The scent of other pigs may upset the apple cart in both cages. Or something in...

    Bedding: Re: Is Kaytee oder control bedding good?

    I can't find anything about what Kaytee uses in it for odor control. Some things are toxic to small animals, so I wouldn't use it until I knew what was in it. You could email customer support at...

    URI: Re: How long is a URI contagious?

    If the antibiotic is effective, the pig shouldn't be contagious after about 48 hours on it. The question is, is it effective? And there's not really any way to know that if the pig isn't getting...

    URI: Re: Antibiotic Question

    Nebulizing plain saline can help in some situations but not in others. It's not apt to hurt anything, but it may not help, either.

    Bonding: Re: Re-bonding mom with neutered son

    The fact that they're related probably won't affect anything one way or the other. You'll have to reintroduce them as if they've never met.

    URI: Re: Antibiotic Question

    It's one of the big guns in the antibiotic world. It can be used for several things, but it's not usually given for routine things because it is hard on the GI tract.

    Not Eating: Re: Friar Tuck's medical thread

    Fresh corn, carrots and oranges are an awful lot of sugar for a guinea pig. And sugar can upset the digestive tract because it affects the balance of good and bad bacteria.
