  3. Chewing: Re: Can Guinea pigs chew on Amazon box's

    My little cretins have all LOVED to destroy boxes, with the exception being Simon. Here are the guidelines I try to follow.

    First, ALL traces of tape, glue, labels, ANYTHING like that MUST be...

    Ok. That's just wrong.

  6. Play: Re: New pigs aren't interested in floortime

    My boars have never gotten floor time, but the reason for this is different. I incorporated a pen for them into their cage, so they've always had tons of space. Their cage is 2 x 4 C&C, but the...

    Injury: Re: Injury to eye?

    Oh, I meant Stripe lol! It's been a very long time since I've seen Gremlins. Like, probably some time in the 1980s :(

    Do let us know how you make out with him. If it is indeed a hay poke, he'll...

    Injury: Re: Injury to eye?

    If the white spot is what you're referring to, it does look like a hay poke. He's a cute little fella. Kinda reminds me of Spike from Gremlins. Yes, I'm old.

    If your geckos go there it's likely...

    Injury: Re: Injury to eye?

    It looks like it might be a hay poke, if I'm seeing things correctly. Do NOT take him back to PetSmart unless you want to risk not seeing him again. Their idea of veterinary care is a little...
  11. Diarrhea: Re: Transparent liquid on poop - Is my guinea pig sick? I really need help.

    It's harmless and completely normal. You'll likely see many more in the future.
  12. Diarrhea: Re: Transparent liquid on poop - Is my guinea pig sick? I really need help.

    The vagina of a sow is actually blocked by a mucus plug when she is not in season. A sow's estrus cycle is typically 18 days, and when she goes into heat, this mucus plug clears so that she can...
  13. Diarrhea: Re: Transparent liquid on poop - Is my guinea pig sick? I really need help.

    That picture is very blurry and hard to tell, but I feel that it's a good possibility that it's a mucus plug. Anyone elses thoughts?

    If I'm right, it's normal and harmless.

    Weight Loss: Re: Adopted severely underweight pigs

    If he is underweight enough that you can feel bones, then by all means offer him unlimited food. Pellets are a good way to help him gain.

    28 ounces is roughly 800 grams, and while that is under...

    Fur: Re: Rare guinea pigs

    That is one cute piggie!

    Come to think of it, all of the piggies in this thread are adorable.
  16. Vet: Re: How often did you have to take your guinea pig to the vet in his/her lifetime

    It only sounds like overkill, until you've actually had to use it. Punkin and Scooter's care from September 1st last year until Scooter's passing May 26th ran me just over $6000. And I would spend...

    My "apartment" stays around 72 degrees, usually. But the sun goes over to the other side of the house in the evening and my living room tends to warm up to about 75 and 77 at those times despite the...

    Chat Re: Just something I wanted to share.

    I have a new addition to my collection. As I stated before, I've made some very good friends around the world in the last few years, both here and on the watch forum.

  22. Wheezing: Re: Weird breathing noises, should I be worried?

    I would have to second ThePigAlchemist. I know vet visits are expensive, but I prefer to err on the side of caution. Your first gut instinct is usually the right one and no one knows your pigs...

    Bonding: Re: Adding a Third Male?

    You are correct, bonding sessions or not 3 boars almost never works. I have tried it myself. And by almost never, it can quite easily result in serious and even fatal injuries to one or more pigs....
  25. Vet: Re: How often did you have to take your guinea pig to the vet in his/her lifetime

    All I can say is, truthfully......... hope for the best, but plan for the worst. Out of the 6 pigs I have had so far in 10 years, all 6 have required vet visits. It's really not a question of IF...
