    Cage: Re: Dog pen cage?

    That's a very clever setup......is it yours? My only issue with it is that I don't like having the wire grids next to the piggies. No particular reason except a possibility of them hurting themselves...

    Vet Costs: Re: Guinea Pig Insurance: Yay or nay? And who?

    Even though this is too late for my current situation with Sparky, it is valuable information for me for the future. As we always say, "it's not a matter of IF your cavy will need vet care, but...

    How Many: Re: Cage mate passed, get another?

    I tried doing this and Sparky had zero interest in the stuffed animal. I even got one about the size of an adult cavy and virtually the same coloring as his departed brother. I also tried this with a...

    Re: New Guinea Pig Owner

    There really is no ideal place because every home is different. You want to have the cage in a location where there will be frequent human company and where they get lots of attention. But, use...

    Fleece: Re: Is dollar store fleece safe?

    I don't recommend no-pill fleece, but that's just a personal preference. Like @ItsaZoo, I prefer blizzard fleece for several reasons: it is a much tighter weave, doesn't pill, tends not to stretch...
  7. Size: Re: I have a cage size delema -- what would you do in this situation?

    The reason you can't visualize it is the way that it's described. I think what the poster is talking about is the type of setup that we often use as an introduction area, a temporary cage or a travel...

    Play: Re: Ideas for Hideaway/Hut

    I absolutely agree! However, if you have a cavy like my Sparky, a cardboard hidey won't last long. He is absolutely mad for paper and especially cardboard! I used to spend a lot of time creating a...

    General: Re: Best size bowl?

    With regard to a food bowl, you have received sound advice from other posters. I think we all have had the experience of cavies dragging their bowl across the cage, standing on the edge and flipping...

    Re: Greetings from Indiana!

    I agree.......great story! :cool:

    With one exception, I have always had neutered boars. I did have a neutered boar/intact sow pairing and they were just the most delightful pair one could ask for....

    I've struggled with the same situation regarding a surviving cavy. Sparky lost his "brother" with whom he had lived since they were four and six weeks old. Chip died suddenly and without warning due...

    Cleaning: Re: How do I make my cage smell better

    Nothing really jumps out at me. You say, "my room"? Does this mean that they are kept in your bedroom? If so, are the boars also in that room? To my thinking, that is simply too many cavies in a...

    Re: New Canadian guinea pig mom to angry boys!

    I happen to a proponent of a loft when one has limited cage space. I have no room to expand so the only way to go was up. I have found over the past few years that the most common issue with a loft...

    Chewing: Re: Issues with guineapig chewing habits

    If this cavy is only 4 mos. old, that is probably your biggest problem. Young ones often need to be trained and that takes patience and time. No, you don't want to "punish" her behavior, but you CAN...

    Teeth: Re: Tips about GP's with Malocclusion

    I don't get it. So what if you don't go to Green Bay?? Your cavy obviously needs the best care possible, and if that's in Green Bay, I'd go there in a heartbeat! If your cavy has dental issues, then...

    Keep pushing the Critical Care and take a dose of patience. I generally fed Chester 30gms at each feeding. If he's reluctant to take it, mix it with pedialyte or a little organic no-sugar-added baby...

    Re: New Canadian guinea pig mom to angry boys!

    Welcome to the Forum! I'm sure that others will have lots of input for you.

    I have almost always had boars and what you are describing sounds like typical behavior. So long as there is no outright...

    It's not an exact science! If she's not eating peppers at all, I would draw up 0.3ml and add a little water or pedialyte.

    Don't worry about naming them in advance. Once they are in your home and the personality starts to come out, you'll find a name for them. And, I should add, that we often call our cavies by different...
