  1. Cleaning: Re: Has Anyone Tried Using Nature's Miracle for Guinea Bedding/Cage Cleaning?

    I've used bleach before and it works well on the uhaul pads, but my mother still complains about the fleece. Every time I do laundry at her house, she makes me use A LOT of her detergent along with...
  2. Cleaning: Has Anyone Tried Using Nature's Miracle for Guinea Bedding/Cage Cleaning?

    Hi everyone!
    I've had guinea pigs for the last 5 years and I've always used the standard vinegar and water to clean the cage (bleach and water a couple of times when mites were uninvited guests)...

  5. Fleece: Re: List your fleece layering technique & Can someone tell me more about terry fleece

    You can cut them in half if you want. I just fold mine twice. One side of my cage is a 2x4 and the other half is a 2x3 so I bought 2 uhaul pads (one for each side)
    You don't necessarily need to...
  6. Fleece: Re: List your fleece layering technique & Can someone tell me more about terry fleece

    Personally I use fleece on top and then uhaul pads underneath. Fleece works best on top because it allows anything wet to pass through it. That's why it dries fairly quickly.
    I used to use...

    Injury: Re: Fighting ended badly

    Skin Problems: Re: Scabs and Dry Skin

    Okay, so my boyfriend's mom took my pigs to the vet while I was in school. She was a "walk-in" so she didn't get our normal vet. The vet said Guinness does not have mites (which I'm still skeptical...

    Skin Problems: Re: Scabs and Dry Skin

    Should I close him off on the other side of the cage so that he doesn't hurt himself on the ramp? If so should I also put Ripley on that side too?
