    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    Oh, I do hope it's just the heat, and he'll come around later. Ignoring treats isn't great, but I've had pigs do it before and come around later.

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    Sounds to me also, that the most prudent course of action would be to remove the eye that's causing a problem. From what I've seen recovery from that surgery is usually a couple of weeks.

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    Yes, it does look pretty nasty. Other than his eye he sounds pretty darn healthy to me. I know you will do what's right for him. Fingers are crossed on my end for everything to work out.

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    My boys send their wheeks and grumbles of support for Little Bear. It's pretty obvious that he gets the love and care from you that he's never gotten elsewhere in his life.

  5. Bonding: Re: Not sure if this is a failed bonding or if I should keep trying?

    I would give them a few days to settle down. No blood was drawn and that is good.

    I would recommend reading and following this guideline TO THE LETTER in order to have the best chance at a...

    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    This really may not be a medical issue, but it's Simon's thread so it seems like the best place to put it.


    Does anyone else's pig go through seemingly temporary personality changes?

    Sick: Re: Chico and Amigo's med thread

    They don't look like bloody pee spots. I'm not honestly sure what those look like. Almost like something was oozing as he walked. Possibly from his nose?

    Conditions: Re: Young Guinea Pig Not Growing

    No two pigs are the same, and it IS possible for one to be smaller than the other. Weight wise, how much smaller are we talking? I had littermates where one was consistently at least 100 grams...

    Not Eating: Re: Pig seems to have trouble eating

    72-75 is where I keep my room for the pigs at all times, summer or winter. I notice a difference when the temperatures start to get above that. They get lazier, eat less, drink more.
  14. Bonding: Re: Is It Too Late To Get Another Guinea Pig?

    I agree with bpatters. She's been alone her entire life. 8 years is a good long life already, so why upset it?

    If you spend a lot of time interacting with her, I would think she'll be...

    Bonding: Re: When and how to start my bonding

    It will take time, and you'll need LOTS of patience. I have had Leo a year and a half and he is NOW comfortable being held, tho he still complains about it. Simon always complains no matter what. ...

    Pellets: Re: Bugs in Guniea Pig Pellets

    Impossible to tell what they are, but toss 'em. Don't feed the pigs anything you suspect bugs might have been into.

    Keep their bag separate and fill their bowls only from the bag for now. ...
  18. Signs: Re: How will I know she's going into labor- day 64 today.

    I've never had sows, much less a pregnant one. That said, I'm pretty sure your little girl will be giving birth any time now.

    I wouldn't handle her from here on out unless absolutely necessary.

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    I would watch to make sure it either stops or doesn't change. Guinea pig pee oxidizes a colour similar to that, but I've never seen it fresh that colour. Could just be me.

    As far as a wet chin,...
  22. Bonding: Re: When to start introducing my new pigs??

    First question. Are all of these pigs male or female, or mixed?

    If they are all male, don't waste your time introducing them. Boar trios work out once in a blue moon every 7-10 decades. ...
