    Re: Help! Digging chewing piggy

    There is a cage section here if you need cage ideas, and there are so many great ones. For two pigs, a 2 grid by 4 grid is generally accepted as the minimum but go bigger if you can. They'll love...

    Re: New to Guinea Pigs!

    Oh, what adorable little things!

    Love those little faces!
  3. Sick: Re: Blood in cage but can't find which pig it's coming from

    I am so sorry for your loss.

    Many of us have been in that very same position, to have to make the decision to do the kindest thing you can for them. And it is so very, very painful. It never...

    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    He's pretty much back to normal now. He and Leo were both waiting for me this morning and while he wasn't running around wheeking, he was active and his vocals have definitely picked up. I suspect...

    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    He still hasn't been out to greet me in the mornings, but tonight he was wheeking for his bedtime veggies. Leo's kind of been aggravating the crap out of him too which doesn't help. I'm sure it'll...

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    He's come so far, through so much adversity to get to you. He's probably never been this well looked after in his life.

    He sounds like such a sweet boy. I just want him to be well.

    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    He has improved, but we aren't there yet. He had his bedtime veggies from cover last night, and he did do a little exploring but was very darty, quick moving and nervous.

    This morning, again, he...
  8. Pellets: Re: Out of hay, is it ok if they just eat pellets for a while?

    I'm in the same boat.


    If they do have hay in their cage, as suggested just make a new pile out of it. Hopefully they'll have enough interest in it to tide them over.
  9. Pellets: Re: Out of hay, is it ok if they just eat pellets for a while?

    If they have pellets I think they'll be fine. While not ideal, it's not like they're going to go hungry.

    Do you happen to be lucky enough to perhaps have some nice fresh green grass for them to...

    Hay: Re: Stick in Kaytee hay

    You gets what you pays for, unfortunately. I'm not surprised at all to hear this. And hey, it even happens in the better brands of hay. It IS an agricultural product and the harvesting process is...
  11. Play: Re: Can I put warm colored fairy lights around my cage?

    I have seen people with lights around their cages. Personally, I wouldn't because my boys can reach their noses OVER the top of a 14 inch high grid. The less temptation to chew things they...

    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    Yeah, I've seen them get weirded out before and act funny. The only reason I posted about it this time is because it was so far out of character. Not even just skittish: outright terrified. I had...

    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    New experience this morning.

    I usually try to sleep in Sunday mornings, much to the piggies dismay. By the time I get up, usually around 730 they are running around wheeking and waiting for their...
  14. Injury: Re: Guinea pig ear torn in half!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!

    I have a weather station that sits on top of my cage, and it measures indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity and outdoor barometric pressure. Short of putting it right IN the cage, i have the best...

    Bonding: Re: Boar Bonding issues HELP!!!

    The other thing to consider here, is were all three of the piggies male?

    If so, the general rule of thumb is no more than two males. Three just seems to be a number that will not work, and...
  16. Keeping Warm: Re: Rolling blackouts and single digit temps in Texas - terrified

    Hay is the one thing you can't go overboard on. Pellets, yes, but I would say if it's not a regular occurrence then it would be ok. Running out of food is not a good idea.

    If it's appearing better, keep doing what you can do until you can get him in. Your weather is going to rapidly improve starting tomorrow. I can't imagine how frustrated you must be. It must be...
  18. Sick: Re: Guinea pig has persistent breathing problems even with vet care

    First of all, I believe you need a new vet. A small animal vet means dog and cat, and they know little to nothing about so-called "pocket pets", and can even be dangerous to pigs.

    You need an...
  19. Keeping Warm: Re: Rolling blackouts and single digit temps in Texas - terrified

    Your weather is going to gradually improve over the next few days, and by Thursday (Friday for sure) you shouldn't need to worry. You've made it this far, your pigs are gonna be ok!

    Behavior: Re: Guinea pig using you?

    You've just described guinea pigs to a "T". Some will get used to you, and come out for pets and skritches. Some, like my Simon, will even climb into your lap if you have a treat or something...

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    The weather in your neck of the woods is supposed to improve dramatically by weeks end. Has he been eating normally? Maybe veggies? Is it possible that he's gotten something caught in his throat? ...
  22. Keeping Warm: Re: Rolling blackouts and single digit temps in Texas - terrified

    I have a couple of friends that live where you are. I have one friend just outside of Dallas and he says its horribly cold (for Texas) and the roads are lousy. No surprise since the DOT there is NOT...
  23. Keeping Warm: Re: Rolling blackouts and single digit temps in Texas - terrified

    I think you can rest easy. Pigs don't deal well with heat at all, but if you have blankets I think they'll be ok. There was a news feed story here just a day or two ago of a pig being found in a...

    I could be wrong, but I think she meant the curliness straightening out. At least that's how I took it.

    Fur: Re: Will it grow out?

    Yes, it will grow back and fairly quickly at that. I may or may not grow back straight, however. You'll just have to wait and see. It will grow back straight in all likelihood but you just never...
