    Hay: Re: Oxbow 90oz hay bags are cursed

    I had issues with the 90 oz bags as well. The hay seemed more coarse and Lacey seemed to leave a lot of it uneaten. So I started buying the 40 oz size. I put it in a big dog food bin which makes it...

    Cage: Re: Where are the doors?

    As far as fleece goes, you don't need to buy a liner. You can buy fleece by the yard on sale, and layer it over an absorbent layer like washable bed pads. It doesn't have to be sewn together and will...

    Pellets: Re: Bugs in Guniea Pig Pellets

    When you separate the food into containers, can you put the containers in the refrigerator? That would keep the pellets fresh and bug-free.

    I taught mine "Circle" and she walks in a circle like a little piggy pirouette. Now if she knows I have something special, like watermelon, she just starts circling before I have a chance to say...

    Bonding: Re: Is It Too Late To Get Another Guinea Pig?

    I agree, I'd leave a single 8-year-old on her own since that's what she's used to. There are plenty ways to change up her living space to keep her engaged and active without upsetting her with a new...

    Fleece: Re: Seam has come undone on old fleece

    The liner is probably Tyvek material, which is what waterproof mattress covers are made of. It's kind of like shower-curtain fabric.

    I would just make sure the liner inside is flat and not...

    Not Eating: Re: Pig seems to have trouble eating

    I'm glad the pigs are holding their weight, that's a good sign.

    I've noticed my pig doesn't eat as well during the hot days, even though she has an air conditioned room. It's still warmer and more...

    Chat Re: Gpig anniversary ideas

    Do you have an apple tree that you could get a small branch from? One that isn't sprayed? They make great kabobs with lettuce, cukes, and some fresh grass tied around the branch.

    Thanks for the response. Cookie was the one I was wondering about with the mixed colors.
  10. Re: Cupcake, Cookie and Cali: Rescue Pets of the Week - St. Cloud Times

    These animals are at the local Humane Society where I live. There are 3 guinea pigs that came in at the same time. On the Humane Society website they have a few more photos, and I was wondering if...

    Re: Autumn and Midnight are dead today

    My condolences, I’m so sorry this happened. High temps take a toll on guinea pigs, and if they are older or have any health issues, it’s just that much worse in the heat. Ice packs under the bedding...

  14. Nutrition: Re: Senior Boar & Weight Loss (Eating Habit Changes)

    Did he have any reaction to the antibiotic? That usually happens after a few days, but antibiotics can mess with digestion and appetite.

    My condolences @heftysmurf, I'm so sorry Smokey didn't recover. His condition was complicated, and you did so much to give him every chance. Take care of yourself.
  16. Behavior: Re: My guinea pigs are only eating their veggies

    Since they are both avoiding pellets and hay, I think it's a food preference issue rather than an illness. I put small amounts of hay in the pile, then top it off every so often with a pinch of fresh...

    Fleece: Re: Looking for no sew fleece liner option

    There are different types of fleece, and some have a texture that doesn't wick as well. I use the plush anti-pill fleece from Joann Fabric. It's a little thicker and softer than the blizzard fleece,...

    Chances are they won't use the flying saucer, and hopefully won't chew or hurt themselves. However, I would suggest to the neighbor to take the 2 boys and return saucer. Then make a trip to a local...

    Stop feeding the peppers for a while, then try again in a few weeks. Sometimes they get tired of something and when it shows up again they are interested.

    Pellets: Re: Alfafa pellets for adult pigs

    I hear you on the cost of pellets. I've had a similar situation with choosing Oxbow Garden Select only to have my guinea pig lose interest in those, and I was stuck with an almost-full bag.
