    Thank you both for the compliment! It has been a problem for me as well since I try to refer to posts that I have previously created which is/was very helpful. I find that I sometimes avoid posting...

    Coroplast: Re: Gp completely eating coroplast

    It seems completely random.....some will show little interest in coroplast, and others become obsessed with it. I generally have had cavies who don't have much interest until now. Rascal chews on the...

    Not Eating: Re: Friar Tuck's medical thread

    So true! It is SO difficult at the time and the pain and heartache seem almost overwhelming. When our beloved Sparky died New Years Day 2020, we were so distraught that we could hardly face the...

    Injury: Re: Chippy Eye Removal

    I don't know this to be factual, but my experience says the same. And, when they are in pain, their appetite drops and thus fecal output diminishes as well. I'm surprised the Reglan hasn't had more...

    Probably not........I must have missed that aspect. It absolutely could be either.....or neither one.

    Infection: Re: Neck lump in elderly guinea pig

    Whoa! Don't be so quick to think that Sacha is terminally ill when in fact it may be a lipoma which is usually benign. Your description that I quoted would lead one to think that. I suggest that you...

    Weight Loss: Re: Underweight pig/may be dying

    I'm happy you brought this up. I can vouch for mixing the oats with his pellets. I don't remember if FT has a cage mate, but if so, the cage mate will also gain weight. Best to feed him separately in...

    I agree with you in that pineapple juice is not appropriate to mix with CC. I have always mixed mine with unflavored pedialyte (generic is fine). I have never had a cavy who didn't like the stuff....
