    Re: Dried forage

    Hi Bellah,
    can you tell me more about this product? I've not heard about it before! What herbs does it contain - do you have an ingredient list maybe? I love the sound of it too!!
  5. Re: diet & nutrition: harringtons guinea pig food

    Hi Skylarnz how interesting your piggies go for the orange pellets last and mine go for them first! I wonder if it has something to do with the different locations soil profiles.

    1st thing of concern...

    Maximus von Lichtenwalder has a lip thing going on.... his top lips swell then split and get crusty. Not all the time. And in such a way that the vet does not know what is...

    Feet: Re: Toe Nails spiral in on itself

    At that kind of distortion I also advise a trip to the vet. The "quick" could well have over grown it's normal length and as such could be cut when you do cut the nail. Be careful and make sure you...
