  2. Cage: Re: How many grids for a 2x5 c&c with stand and lid?

    I've had 3 boars get along fine in a 2x4, and a different trio do fine in a 2x5. I've also got 3 right now who really struggle to be civil to each other in a 2x8. So it depends entirely on the dudes...
  3. Cage: Re: How many grids for a 2x5 c&c with stand and lid?

    Best thing to do would be to sit down and draw it out and count for yourself how many grids you need. Stands and lids can be done differently and it's entirely up to you the way you do it. That's...
  4. Fleece: Re: Has anyone tried Zorb dimples? Better absorbant layer options?

    Zeolites are fine. They're helpful with odor control.

    Fir is fine and after extensive research I've come to the conclusion that kiln dried cedar is fine, especially in small quantities. You might...

    Lump: Re: Large Nasty Mass

    It would seem that you think the "thing to do" is insinuate that the poster is a troll and then snipe about whether or not he's wearing a shirt.

    Yes, I realize the only possible treatment for a...

    Lump: Re: Large Nasty Mass

    You know, it's unfortunate that someone can't come along and ask for help without being accused of being a troll or told to put a shirt on or told not to hold him this way or that, the pig won't live...

    Re: Tortillas?

    Actually, I just can't understand why, if you're giving up meat to spare some animals from dying, you seem to prefer tortillas with fat from animals being killed for their meat. Maybe that isn't what...

    Re: A little rant, I guess.

    So, the thing that I've not seen addressed here is that live feeding reptiles is dangerous to the reptile. Or at least, it has the potential to be dangerous. And, that being the case, why take a...
  9. Cage: Re: Double Double Critter Nation into one big cage ???

    I've ordered 11 of these cages over the years and never had an issue with one arriving bent or broken.

    Buying them used can be problematic for these reasons for sure though.
  10. Cage: Re: Double Double Critter Nation into one big cage ???

    Nation cages are modular. To put two together like these folks have done, you simply leave off the end doors of each full cage that will form the middle and secure them with a zip tie or metal tie....

    Pellets: Re: Pellets for adult guinea pigs

    Not sure from a nutritional aspect, but I ordered Sherwood Forest pellets once and they smelled absolutely horrible. Like motor oil. I messaged them and they asked me to send it back so they could...

    Pellets: Re: Pellets for adult guinea pigs

    It looks like the colored stuff is dehydrated fruits and vegetables, partially. Not necessarily the best, but also not terrible. There's also some colored pieces that have added color. You could pick...

    Re: Shocking kijiji ad - can I report it?

    There's nothing shocking about it, and kijiji doesn't have any rules against breeder ads, I don't think. You can report it, but it'd likely be ignored since many people still do house mammals in...

    Re: Tortillas?

    I absolutely cannot decipher your logic. If you don't have a problem with animal products, what is your concern with the animal fat?

    And if you are trying to give up meat, presumably as a result...

    Animal Welfare: Re: I don't' get it.....

    There is such a thing as responsible rehoming, whether any of us likes the reasons or not. Supposing they are rehoming just because they got...

    Animal Welfare: Re: I don't' get it.....

    Actually it's pretty clearly stated they took them in as a favor to someone else and meant to rehome them pretty quickly. Given that, I think the level of care and obvious investment they've made is...

    Animal Rights: Re: I don't agree with euthanizing pets, opinions?

    Re: "put him down"

    A gun to the head, for a large animal, is a humane way to end life when done properly. I think it's a matter of personal preference and experience. There are a lot of euphemisms for intentionally...

    Eyes: Re: Eye Injury from Bite: How Bad is It?

    Do you know where the puncture wounds actually are? Was he bit in the eyeball itself (this is pretty unlikely for a variety of reasons) or just somewhere near the eye?

    Newborn Pups: Re: Newborn not able to sit up or walk

    If the pup is alive but not nursing, goat milk is an acceptable substitute. I've saved many babies with a mixture of goat milk and chinchilla Lifeline. The milk alone would be helpful if the poster...
  24. General: Re: Not too good experience with Guinea Pig Vet yesterday.

    I think it's slightly absurd that you'd expect a vet you haven't seen in two years to remember an email from two years ago, moreso if you'd expect her to remember what the email actually said about...
