    Chat Re: Coronavirus: Can our piggies catch it

    Petluv, if you can find fresh bell peppers they can be frozen so you could stock up for a few weeks. A little green grass that has not been treated with chemicals is nutritious as long as you start...

    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    Such good news about Scooter. I hope he can put some weight on, maybe eating more pellets? It sounds like you have an excellent vet clinic and of course, you notice as soon as anything changes.

    Cage: Re: Got a new cage my girls love it!!

    I agree about the pigloo. Pigs seem to love them. If you expand the cage and want to use the pigloo, cut another opening in the other side and sand the cut edges smooth. Pay special attention to the...
  8. Water: Re: Piggies spilling water and rattling their watering tubes.

    The spout should be about shoulder height. I have a bottle with an angled spout and I put it through the 4th grid so probably 3” from the floor. They should have to tilt their heads up to drink, but...
  9. Fleece: Re: Looking for Purchasing Fleece Bedding, toys, etc

    Some of the fleece accessories can be made easily without sewing. Fleece is usually on sale through Joann Fabric, and one yard is about 55” wide so it’s a good size piece of fabric.

    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    I sure hope Scooter continues to do well. I know they love veggies, but it sounds like he will be better off with pellets and hay only.

    When mine was ill the vet cautioned about the quantity of...

  12. Re: Spots' Medical Thread, was Piggy of 1 year old biting me

    You are right about switching from Hartz to a better quality brand like KMS or Oxbow. If you decide to supplement vitamin C, you can put a drop or two on fresh veggies and see if they will eat them....

  14. Sneezing: Re: Guinea pig constantly sneezing even after Baytril

  15. Medications: Re: No interest in pellets or hay after starting Baytril

    You may have to hand feed him Critical Care, which is a nutritional food for convalescing guinea pigs. As Bpatters said, guinea pigs need to keep moving food through their digestive tract. You can’t...

  23. Teeth: Re: My guinea pig, Clovers, top teeth are clear at the ends. (Picture attached)

    When they have their teeth trimmed and can't pull the food into their mouths, it helps to cut veggies into long strips like matchsticks. Then they can get the food into their back teeth to eat.

    Crusty Eyes: Re: Snickers' Medical Thread

    In my opinion, I would start supplementing with Critical Care. And if he's eating pellets, I would give him an extra helping to see if he eats more. That would help him gain weight.
