    Not Eating: Re: Help with critical care

    I am hand feeding him. Unfortunately feeding him takes forever (like it took one hour this morning to get him to eat 6 ML and his meds). I'm doing the best I can but there is no way he's going to get...

    Not Eating: Re: Help with critical care

    THANK YOU for your post! and thank goodness. I've been near tears all evening. I am not even sure the vet trimmed them, I will have to get a closer look later when my kids go to bed. I pureed some...

    Not Eating: Re: Help with critical care

    Hi. So I was reading another thread here and now I feel sick. I think the vet may have also planed his front teeth. Oh god. I have to see when I get home. They weren't especially long before. Is that...

    Wow spy9doc -- that is unbelievable. You are so dedicated to him. You are really his miracle, actually.

    So to recap, the vet did the teeth on Monday. He was concerned on Tuesday that Elvis' mouth...

    i know, so frustrating. I requested the dental visit last Tuesday or Wednesday morning and this was the fastest they could do it. Yes he's on pain meds. Bpatters - do you think this was bc he wasn't...

    Not Eating: Re: Help with critical care

    UPDATE: Thought I'd give an update on Elvis. I was feeding him the critical care for 1-2 weeks but the sessions would take forever and he'd often spit up/spit out the food. At the same time, he...

    Hi. So I have been burrito wrapping Elvis to feed the Critical Care and it has been going well. He's actually pretty compliant with it.

    Now I'm just wondering if anyone can help me brainstorm on...

    So earlier this afternoon I had him on my lap to feed him. I thought it was going well as I was kind of scratching his neck (which he loves and he lifts up his chin for more) and then I was also...

    Not Eating: Re: Help with critical care

    Thanks bpatters. Maybe I'm not pushing it in far enough. I was worried about choking him. Would you wake him up to take more of it? Or just let him sleep and try again later?

    Adopting: giving away a cage

    Hi. I went to post this on classifieds but there were no posts for anything with 100 miles of my house so I am not sure if that is a good place. We are moving. I have one of those Kaytee pet store...

    I'm familiar with all the airports. I just can't find any airline that will allow him in the cabin except Frontier.

    Frustrated: Re: Cross country move with guinea pig. Need help!

    Actually you can't. They only connect from LAX to LGA through Denver and the guy said that I'd need to have an over night layover in order to make the connection. :(

    Behavior: Re: How well trained are you?

    Elvis thinks he's too good for wheeking. In the evenings he just smashes his face up to the part of the cage closest to our kitchen and bites at the metal and coroplast until he gets a snack. As soon...

    You can probably use things you have at home. I made a tunnel out of a grid and lined it with fleece. Elvis enjoys cardboard boxes and paper bags quite a bit. I bought him one toy he really likes --...

    Elvis goes crazy with excitement every time I clean his cage. (and I clean it out almost everyday so this is not a novelty!) It's the sound of the plastic bag rattling that does it. He loves it. It...
