  1. Bonding: Re: When to start bonding guinea pig who just lost their cage mate?

    That makes sense, thank you. I am setting them up in a neutral territory Saturday and while my mom watches them I will be scrubbing everything down.

  3. Sick: Re: Gunea pig with sore bottom and soft stool?

    Thank you both for your suggestions. That was a great idea and I did that. Unfortunately, it turns out she has a tumor that fills over 50% of her stomach and that's what's causing it.

    Thanks again
  4. Sick: Gunea pig with sore bottom and soft stool?

    When I woke up this morning (Sunday) I noticed that my guinea pig's cage has some smeared poo in it. There are 2 girl pigs in this cage with a GuineaDad fleece liner, so it was easy to spot. When I...
  5. Bonding: Re: Has anyone else combined a bonded pair of females with a bonded 3 females?

    Thank you!

    When I introduce them, I was thinking it could be in their brand new, larger cage. Would that be an okay intro place? My plans are to make the cage 4 ft x 8 ft.

  17. General: Re: If one pig needs to go to the vet, should you bring its cage mate(s)?

    I feel like separating the sisters wouldn't be a huge problem, I'm slightly concerned for the 3rd pig though. The possibly sick pig is the dominant one and the newest addition is definitely the...

    I have 3 pigs living together right now. 2 are sister and then 1 other female that I added in 3 months ago. 1 of the sisters started coughing, so I'm going to call the vet in the morning to see when...

    Sorry, I meant a separate bowl of the pellet/minced veggie mix. I'll start giving that a try in the morning, thank you for your help!
  23. Behavior: Re: Pig that perfers isolation and won't even look at a fruit or vegetable?

    Thank you for the link! My once concern with mincing the veggies into the pellets is that pellets is one of the two things she'll eat, could mincing the veggies in it turn her off from eating the...
