    Crusty Eyes: Re: Stain in Corner of Guinea Pig's Eye

    Crusty Eyes: Re: Stain in Corner of Guinea Pig's Eye

    If it is bloat, you can get some Ovol children's gas drops from the pharmacy. That, and I have found that a vibrating toothbrush, or a Gillette Power razor with the razor removed under a towel for a...

  7. Re: Unplanned adoption, seeking input on my check list

    Thanks for the update! Glad to hear Nutter Butter has a good home that will keep him, spoil him and love him for who he is. Couldn't have happened to a cuter pig!

    I am so, so sorry for your loss. 17 years is a lifetime of love, even though it's never enough. My thoughts are with you and your family, and Scooter sends his wheeks for support.

    Bathing: Re: Cleaning a white guinea pig?

    You can certainly try giving him a "butt bath" as it were. It's entirely possible that he's mourning the passing of his cagemate, and is lonely and bored and can't be bothered getting up as much as...

    Wheezing: Re: Loud Wheezing Noise

    There's a good chance he's got something stuck in his throat. A good loud cough or two should clear it, but if it persists he should see a vet. I've had a couple of pigs that did that, and both...

    Introductions: Re: help naming 2.0

    I thought of changing Lava's name to Magma. Technically Magma is still Lava, but you could call her Mags or Maggie for short. Just a rambling on my part.

    Cute piggies!

    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    He's only had 4 doses. I'm very encouraged with how well he seems to be doing. The pooping/not pooping thing is bothering me, but I think we'll sort that out.

    Scooter seems to be responding well to the new antibiotic. His weight has not dropped below 1057 grams. He seems to have one day where he poops fine, and the next he barely poops at all. ...
