    Bloated: Re: Bloated or chubby- What to do?

    I wouldn't give the simethicone as long as she's eating and pooping normally.

    Fleece: Re: Looking for no sew fleece liner option

    I used fleece for years and never had a liner. I used wood pellets underneath, laid the fleece down on top, and put weights (bricks, stones, etc.) along the edges to keep them from digging.

  4. Genitals: Re: Unable to sex guinea pigs and the vet hasn't returned my calls

    Here's something that may help: http://www.cavyspirit.com/sexing.htm.

    But if they're not the same, separate them NOW. Pregnancy and delivery are very hard on guinea pig sows, and the death rate...
  5. Herbs: Re: DIY botanical hay or similar to the Oxbow hay?

    There are mites in, and on, everything, including you and me. I wouldn't worry about the mites in the bags.

    What kinds of herbs are in the Oxbow hay?

    Rosiethecutepig, the article has the words "guinea pig" in it, so the system grabs it for the News Feed.

    Possibly Pregnant: Re: Rescue Pigs Pregnancy Journey

    Cute pups, as they all are! I'm happy for the safe delivery, but sorry about the lethal baby. Do keep us posted on how he gets along.

    Fingers crossed for no lethals for Betty.
  8. How Many: Re: Tricky Intact Male and Female Caging Situation

    How tiny? Males can impregnate females before they're four week of age, so separate them NOW regardless of how you have to do it.

    You can't do two males with a female. You can put them in...

    Lump: Re: Small wart-like growth

    I think you're probably right. I'd just keep an eye on it, and see a vet if it gets larger and/or starts bothering her.

    Hair Loss: Re: Tiny piece of Hair fall out

    I wouldn't use H&S. Nizoral has been safely used for guinea pigs for a long time, and doesn't cause any problems.

    Possibly Pregnant: Re: Possibly pregnant?

    Never. never. never. take the word of a pet shop clerk for whether a guinea pig is male or female. We've had many a pregnant "male" and many a "female" who has impregnated cagemates whose sex been...

    Possibly Pregnant: Re: Possibly pregnant?

    Male guinea pigs can impregnate a female at about 3.5 weeks of age, never mind 8-9 weeks. And baby sows can get pregnant around four weeks or shortly thereafter.

    Are you positive they're both...
  14. Infection: Re: Help!Green/brown spots both sides of mouth Iíve never seen this before please tel

    It looks to me like it's getting worse. I'd see a vet.
  15. Injury: Re: One piggy is biting the other on the nuts! Why?! Help please.

    That kind of behavior is often an indication that something is wrong with the pig that's being pestered. I'd take Pichou to the vet for a thorough checkup.
  16. Hay: Re: Are my guinea pigs acting spoiled or is this hay actually bad?

    The hay isn't bad, but it may take a while for the pigs to get used to it. First or second cut hay actually does a better job keeping the teeth ground down than the softer third cut.

    Injury: Re: Emergency: Bleeding nose

    I'd say do NOT wipe it with a q-tip. There may be hay stuck up in the nostril, and the q-tip will only push it further in.

    My bet is on a hay poke. You need to see a vet who can look with a light...

    Behavior: Re: My girls lately..... I have a question.

    Nearly all female animals come into heat, and guinea pigs are no different. They usually don't bleed, but occasionally we run across a sow that spots a little. Heat lasts 1 or 2 days, and happens...

    Skin Problems: Re: 2 guinea pigs with skin problems

    I think the lighter colored one definitely needs to see a vet. That's an open wound that could easily get infected, and is probably the result of a bite. And if you're gonna take one in, you might...

    Skin Problems: Re: 2 guinea pigs with skin problems

    The one on the right looks like it might be a gunky grease gland. I'd get some Nizoral shampoo, soap it up good and let it sit for a few minutes, and then rinse well. Then after it's dry post...

    Where to Order?: Re: Probiotic recommendation

    Most pet stores also sell it, but usually in powder form. I always used the big syringe from Amazon.
  24. General: Re: I dropped my guinea pig and want to make sure he's okay.

    If he's moving, eating and pooping normally, I'd just watch him carefully and get him to a vet only if he shows any signs of distress.

    Pay special attention to the cut on the side of his mouth. ...
