    Injury: Re: Possible Bite, Should I Separate?

    I think all you can do is keep an eye on their behavior. It’s normal that they have an occasional squabble here and there. But if you see that two are teaming up on one, or if one is constantly...

    Injury: Re: Possible Bite, Should I Separate?

    Glad to hear things seem to be working out. With a long cage setup like this, I would stagger the hideys or angle them slightly so it's not one long tunnel. I know pigs like to run through tunnels,...

    Feet: Re: Pododermatitis

    Another idea that I use is the white super-soft microfiber polishing cloths they sell at Dollar Tree. They are very soft fleece cloths usually found with the automotive products. I toss one in each...

    Hay: Re: Yellow hay

    I just bought a bunch of Oxbow Orchard Grass from Chewy. They had a special deal, they give a $10 discount on a $50 purchase. But it was only on the Oxbow orchard grass. I usually get the the...

    Not Eating: Re: Friar Tuck's medical thread

    When mine reacted to Baytril she only had 5 doses and just couldn't stomach hay or pellets, and of course no input, no output. A different vet switched her to Albon and gradually she started getting...

    Crusty Eyes: Re: Snickers' Medical Thread

    I agree these little pets are so important. As you say, something to smile about every day. I got my little girl after we lost a sweet little dog. I called her my Velcro dog because she had to be...

    Crusty Eyes: Re: Snickers' Medical Thread

    I agree, just keep him comfortable. It sounds like he's eating and feeling reasonably good, so I would just use the pain meds prescribed to control the pain as much as possible. If arthritis is...

    It sounds like Nationwide has good insurance coverage. I hope Bianca is feeling well.

    Rehoming: Re: Rehoming my guinea pigs

    I hope this works out for your guinea pigs. You are such a responsible owner, I give you a lot of credit for getting them a good home.
  13. Injury: Re: Guinea pig ear torn in half!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!

    If the vet knew that a simple bite wouldn’t require vet care, why did they schedule an appointment? They must have asked you what the situation was when you called. They could have told you on the...

    Cage: Re: Tipping hay box over

    I agree. They love to burrow and sleep in hay, so it will become a toilet at some point.
  17. Injury: Re: Guinea pig ear torn in half!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!

    Guinea pigs in pain tend to hide, sit in one place, and refuse to eat or drink. That can quickly lead to gut stasis which is a life threatening condition. Guinea pigs are also very sensitive to some...

    Mine doesn’t like to be held at an angle either, and she was a fairly social pig when I got her. It must be an awkward position because she just looks scared and holds still. Then when she has all...

    Frustrated: Re: Found abandoned guinea pigs

    If they eat lettuce you can rinse that and leave it really wet so they get more water. I used to lay the leaves in a shallow dish of water so mine had to pull it out of the water to eat it. Cucumbers...

    Frustrated: Re: Found abandoned guinea pigs

    So good of you to take them in and give them a chance. Yes, I would start with vitamin C since they're probably malnourished and maybe dehydrated as well. Good luck with them!
