    Cleaning: Re: Absorbent Layer under fleece

    First of all, not allowing any poopy clothes in the washer/dryer is a pretty silly argument. When you were a baby, did your Mom never wash soiled diapers or soiled clothes? Has no adult in the home...

    Nails/Nail Trimming: Re: How To Cut Nails?

    Then buy a set of the scissors. They are ridiculously inexpensive and available at virtually any pet store. The secret to not cutting too short is to cut just beyond the "quick" or the vein in the...
  3. Hay: Re: Hay allergy and wheezing. Pellets instead of hay?

    Again I emphasize.....consider investing in an air purifier for both your health and that of your cavies. I have a small Homedics unit that has run 24/7 for seven years. :D I brush the filter monthly...

    Re: Goodnight Domino, Love you forever

    I can really feel your pain. My last remaining boy crossed the Rainbow Bridge on New Years Day and I still cannot believe the profound grief that I am experiencing. :sad: Even though he had been ill...
  5. Hay: Re: Hay allergy and wheezing. Pellets instead of hay?

    Ah, another Aby lover! It's a good thing that you don't live closer to me as I have been known to pignap Abys. :p Especially now that my last boy crossed the Rainbow Bridge on New Years Day. :sad:...

    Upper Levels: Re: turning a dog crate into a piggy paradise

    Check out a post I made quite some time ago about making a reinforced coroplast ramp. My version is quite similar to the ramps that the parent site of this Forum sells. The ramps that the Guinea Pig...
  7. Behavior: Re: Need tips on how to groom and gain trust with Peruvian guinea pigs

    I'm one who doesn't believe in not picking up frightened cavies. I pick them up right away.........and often. I start with holding them close on my chest and making them feel secure. That seems to...
  8. Fleece: Re: What should I use for cleaning fleece bedding?

    I have never had cavies who chew on the fleece. There are too many other more interesting things to sample. :rolleyes:
  9. General: Re: Potty training / Spilling food / Shedding / Behavior

    I can think of two changes I would make. First is to check out a bowl that has worked quite well for me and isn't expensive. You can buy it at Target or online in different sizes:

    Conditions: Re: Is my skinny pig okay?

    They simply appear to bulge more because they have no hair around them. They look perfectly normal to me. And yes, a skinny has a high metabolism in order to keep it warm and that high metabolism...

    Bedding: Re: Cost-Efficient Litter Box Bedding?

    Yes, it is a compacted paper litter. I have used the crumbled paper variety for a long time and it works quite well. Recently, it has been frequently out of stock and I tried the paper pellets. When...

    Bedding: Re: Cost-Efficient Litter Box Bedding?

    Most of my cage has fleece liners. I have a litter box in the loft and one the main level in which I put a layer of Petco SoPhresh over which there is a generous amount of hay. My cavies have always...

    Diet: Re: Using both

    I absolutely agree. My cavies have 24/7 access to pellets as well. They don't whine and beg for food if they are hungry, and I don't have to feed more than one main veggie meal per day.

    Introductions: Re: i Think I found my new baby girl!

    If she was "surrendered", then she must have been in a cage? Perhaps Petco will let you borrow that cage for a week until your supplies arrive.

    It sounds as though you aren't persuaded that she is...

    Fleece: Re: Handheld machine for fleece?

    Based on your interpretation of what the Vet told you..........get a new Vet! That is a BS explanation and one without much scientific rationale.

  22. Skin Problems: Re: Guinea pig loosing hair on one side of body and around eyes; watery eyes

    Never ever add liquid vitamins to your cavy's drinking water! It often makes the water taste bad and they won't drink it.......which can lead to other problems. You can administer the recommended...
