    Behavior: Re: Eating too fast and what to do about it?

    Do you know what the Heimlich Maneuver is for choking humans? A modified version (modified for a much smaller creature) worked for me on one occasion.

  3. Won't Eat Veggies: Re: Can piggies be healthy if they DON'T eat greens?

    Cavies don't have to have greens. Many of them have never had greens offered to them.

    Your little one is terrified right now. She needs time to adjust and will learn from Nico. I presume that you...

    Allergies: Re: Male Guinea Pig Causing Allergies?

    Hmmmm........let me offer some thoughts.

    The answer to your question is NO to the best of my knowledge. What most people don't realize is that humans are rarely allergic to cavies. It is most...

    Better to under dose than over dose. Personally, I wouldn't be supplementing the multivitamin drops, but that's your decision. If you are feeding high-quality pellets and he has his daily ration of...

    Re: Piggy Obsessed

    I can certainly attest to this! :crazy: It's been a long time since I've had very young cavies and I had forgotten just how much work and patience they require. We have been pig-less since New Year's...

    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    So, today apparently the marker of success is drinking from a water bottle. Small milestone at our house. I have two new little boars (haven't had time to post nor take pics as yet) and they had no...

    Puberty: Re: How to estimate pig's age?

    Welcome to the Forum! Cute piggies.

    As you have time, browse through previous posts as there is SO much information stretching back for about 15 years. Almost any question you have about cavy care...
  14. Water: Re: How to get guinea pig to drink from bottle?

    No luck here either. I tried squirting some into the mouth and just about choked the boy. It's the same old story.....they're terrified of being picked up, but once cuddled in my arms, they are...
  15. Aggression: Re: Moved 2 pigs into new home and one started going haywire

    To the OP, note the current thread "Possibly Pregnant......" where I just posted pics of male & female genitals. Try to duplicate the lighting and angle of those pics.
  16. Possibly Pregnant: Re: Is my guinea pig pregnant? I was told she was spayed!

    The pics you have posted are taken at a less than optimal angle and are simply not clear enough. Take a look at the pics below and try to duplicate them with Beatrix.

    Stand: Re: Ikea Kallax Stand?

    My first thought is "why do you not have a bottom on your cage?" If you plan to put it anywhere other than the floor, it will be unsteady and always at risk for falling. Then build a custom grid...
