    General: Re: New cage, travel, and introduction.

    If you're trying to save money, a C&C cage might be a better option than a wooden cage. Coroplast is pretty cheap and can be found at sign stores while grids can be found on Craigslist and at used...
  4. Re: New to guinea pigs! Suggestions welcome!!

    I would give the supplement only if you don't have fresh veggies. Fresh grass is also pretty high in vitamin C, but make sure it isn't sprayed with anything and start with small amounts to avoid...
  5. Re: New to guinea pigs! Suggestions welcome!!

    Oxbow has a good vitamin C supplement in their Natural Science line, and my guinea pigs really like it. However, as long as you feed high quality pellets and a variety of veggies (such as bell...

    Play: Re: Floor time and baths?

    If you're able to, you should try to give your guinea pigs floor time, since it gives them a chance to run around and explore. To make it easier to pick them up, you can herd one into a closed-bottom...

    Coroplast: Re: Wee Wee Proof?

    I put glue in just the very bottom of the corners of my coroplast base so that the glue is covered by the fleece. Most hot glues are non-toxic and so is silicone. I would be more careful about what...

    Coroplast: Re: Wee Wee Proof?

    I put hot glue along the cracks in the corners of my coroplast, but you could also use silicone or caulk.

    Thanks for the input! I'll keep feeding and weighing them as usual.
  11. Pellets: Slight Dip in Weight After Changing Pellets

    Chin and Lacey just reached 6 months old, so after a week of giving them half of their usual young guinea pig pellets and half adult pellets I switched to 1/8 cup of adult pellets per day. When I...

    Cage: Re: Kitchen bedding, having trouble

    I use fleece for the main part of my cage and wood pellets only in the kitchen. The pellets are hardwood stove pellets with nothing added. My kitchen is 1x2 and gets dirty pretty quickly, so I sift...

    Hi! I've been using fleece for the main part of my piggies' cage, and pelleted paper cat litter for their litter box. The problem is that they go through the paper litter pretty fast (I spot clean...
  16. What breed?: Re: Discovering your Piggy's breed/colors/pattern

    Cool, thanks! Lacey is only a couple ounces heavier, but they still have a lot of growing to do (they are only three months old) so who knows? Even though Chin is bigger, Lacey is the dominant one.

    86507 Chin (gray and white) and Lacey (brown) are sisters from the same litter. Lacey has black hairs with ticking the same color as her stripe and a smooth coat. Chin has fur ranging from black to...

  19. Sick: Re: Diarrhea caused by antibiotics, how to treat?

    Thanks so much for the advice! I have been giving her the Pedialyte mixture and pellet slurry every two hours, since she will only take a few mL of each before she starts squirming. After I fed her...

    Hi. My two guinea pigs were recently on five days of Orbax to clear up a mild URI (they got 6.6 mg once a day). They seemed fine with it, but the day after their fourth dose I noticed some diarrhea....
