    Sick: Re: Chico and Amigo's med thread

    I hope they can start to at least co-exist for now. It’s a big change for both of them, so maybe when Charlie gets more used to the sounds of the house and isn’t so anxious they will both settle down.

    Your Maya was a beauty, and how cute that she sleeps on her back. I had an old cat who did that.

    I hope things start to improve. You mentioned the simethicone earlier. The vet I go to recommends it for gas. When my previous pig had a gas bubble, the simethicone worked well to reduce the gas. I...

    I agree with Guinea Pig Papa that time does not heal all wounds. In my experience, we just learn how to live with the loss. But time does seem to make it easier to recall good memories and even share...

    Grids are dangerous to young pigs. They learn to poke their heads through and as they grow, they will eventually get their head caught and they can choke. Young pigs can also be more athletic. Mine...

  15. URI: Re: How long for a previously ill guinea pig to recover weight?

    You might try supplementing her food with a little Critical Care. It has nutrients and would add some calories that may help her put on a little weight.

    Urine: Re: Peeing less than ussual and less active

    Do you weigh them regularly? It's a good idea to watch their weight, since guinea pigs often hide symptoms of illness. If this is something related to digestion I would expect a drop in weight.

    Hay: Re: Oxbow Hay causing small poops?

    It’s okay to feed orchard grass hay in addition to, or as a replacement for, timothy hay. In fact, I don’t feed timothy because it’s been so coarse lately.
