    Introductions: Re-Doing Introductions

    Hi Everyone,

    I haven't posted in a very long time, but I'm desperate for help!

    In the beginning of October our beloved Poofters passed away just two months away from her 8th birthday. We miss...
  2. Hay: Small Pet Select is Available in Canada!

    Hi Everyone,

    I haven't posted in years, and I've been meaning to do re-introductions for a long time, but for now I just have to share the good news that Small Pet Select Hay is available in...
  3. Ovarian Cysts: Re: Ovarian Cysts, Kidney Cysts, and Enlarged Adrenal Gland

    I've been in contact with my vet, who has been in contact with exotics experts, internal medicine experts, and ultrasound imaging experts on her small mammal veterinary forum. The consensus so far is...
  4. Ovarian Cysts: Re: Ovarian Cysts, Kidney Cysts, and Enlarged Adrenal Gland

    Thank you. I'll definitely sign up on Guinea Lynx too.

    Crackle has a few other health threads on this forum, but they're from a long time ago. Would putting them all together in one medical...
  5. Ovarian Cysts: Ovarian Cysts, Kidney Cysts, and Enlarged Adrenal Gland

    My four-year-old sow Crackle had an ultrasound the other day, and it turns out that she has small ovarian cysts, multiple cysts on her kidneys, and an enlarged right adrenal gland. Crackle has a...

    Injury: Re: Cloudy eye caused by hay what to do?

    Crackle has cataracts, and has impaired vision, so she has had two hay pokes this year. We just got over one injury. They usually heal quickly once treated. Our exotics vet prescribed an antibiotic...

    Pellets: Re: where can I buy Oxbow products?

    I order Oxbow products from canadianpetconnection.com. I believe that they carry the complete Oxbow line. They're in Ontario. They usually only ship one day a week, and the shipping to BC is...

    Tumor: Re: Ovarian Cysts and Mammary Tumor

    Poofters is doing really well. You'd never know that she just had surgery two weeks ago. Poofters is a bit on the chubby side, but not so much that our vet is concerned. She'd gotten heavier after...

    Tumor: Re: Ovarian Cysts and Mammary Tumor

    We had some great news from the biopsy! The tumour was actually just made up of fat. It still was good that we'd had it removed, though, because there was some inflammation. Does anyone know what...

    Here is the link to Poofters' earlier thread.

    The tumor actually was under the left nipple, and so Poofters had a...

    Tumor: Ovarian Cysts and Mammary Tumor

    Hi Everyone,

    I tried to post on an old thread that I had started about Poofters' ovarian cysts, but I wasn't able to add to it, since the thread was too old, so you'll have to excuse me for...

    Tumor: Re: mammory tumor

    Poofters' surgery went very well. By the way she's acting, one would never know that she'd just had surgery a few days ago. It was very scary on the day of the surgery because she wasn't able to...

    Tumor: Re: mammory tumor

    We're in a similar situation. We just found out last Thursday that Poofters has mammary lumps. Our vet isn't sure if they're tumors or cysts, so this Tuesday she'll do an ultrasound to determine what...

    Popcorning: Re: Rumble-corning

    That is a great name for it! Poofters did that a lot before she was spayed, especially during floor time. During floor time, she'd rumble into one of her cuddle cups or critter beds, and then start...
  16. Conditions: Re: Can guinea pigs have seperation anxiety issues

    Jasmine sounds a lot like Poofters. Crackle and Poofters are extremely bonded with my husband and me. With my job, I'm able to do a lot of my work at home, so I'm with the girls a lot. Also, my...

    Eyes: Re: Lady's Eye

    Have you tried a little extra vitamin C to speed up healing? Crackle's been getting approximately one and a half Oxbow tablets a day, and our vet said that it probably speeded up the healing process...

    Eyes: Re: Lady's Eye

    One more thing: I've been thinking that a bit more vitamin C than usual could help with the recovery. I usually crush one Oxbow tablet and put it over Crackle and Poofters' food, and then give...

    Hopefully I'm not overstepping my boundaries by asking you this in your piggy's thread, but I'm just wondering if you have any advice about administering the eye drops. Crackle's been on Voltaren eye...

    Eyes: Re: Lady's Eye

    I can really sympathize with you. Crackle also has an eye injury, likely from a hay poke. It was harder to spot with her, though, because she has cataracts, and sometimes squints her left eye. We...

    I admit that they are expensive, and that they can be quite sharp to pull apart, but I use them as floor time treats rather than as normal hay. I like the fact that the stacks are a novelty for my...

    Play: Re: What's so great about fiddle sticks?

    My piggies' favourite toy is the Oxbow Harvest Stacks. They're actually compressed hay, so my girls get the long-strand fibre that they need. I get the ones with plain timothy hay and avoid the ones...
  25. Play: Re: How long before guinea pigs feel comfortable enough to have some fun?

    In the beginning, Crackle and Poofters were super-timid during floor time. The thing that really helped with them getting comfortable with me was arranging floor time so that I could sit on the floor...
