    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    I'm a little worried about Gimbly. I'm pretty sure he is the one having pointy poop. I woke up to a lot of it. He's had it on and off since I got him in Dec 2020, but there was so much overnight. It...

    Grooming: Does his grease gland need cleaning?

    Does Gimbly's grease gland need cleaning? He is a sheltie/abyssinian mix and has long fur near his rear. He doesn't have yucky fur from poop/pee, but the area of his grease grand is very sticky and...

    Where to Order?: Re: Probiotic recommendation

    Yeah I had the tube...or whatever you want to call the one with the spinny top. It said Benebac but was green with drawn pictures of dogs/cats. I already pitched the container since my dog thought it...
  5. General: Re: I dropped my guinea pig and want to make sure he's okay.

    I would make an appointment with his vet to make sure he is okay. If that were my pig, that is definitely what I would be doing. That's a long fall and the kitchen floor is probably hard tile or...

    Where to Order?: Probiotic recommendation

    My dog decided he wanted to eat the pigs' tube of Bene-bac, which we got from a vet I refuse to return to. Anyone know if Benebac can be bought w/o going to a vet, or if there is a recommended OTC...

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    My dog is fine and dandy. Luckily his meds have a very low toxicity. He would have needed to eat 60 pills to have problems. He ate 30.

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    So we haven't been back to the vet since my dog decided he'd like to overdose on his arthritis meds and cost me an ER trip. Little Bear's eye is one day very gunky and the next day it will be...
  9. General: Re: Can I leave my guinea pig alone for 6 days?

    Find a pet sitter, bring them with you, or board them. I wouldn't leave them alone for even a full day.

    Fleece: Re: Worst fleece designs?

    If I had known how difficult this brown animal print fleece would be, I probably wouldn't have gotten it (it came w/ a used c&c set I bought). I agree that the pigs look best on the lighter colors -...

    Fleece: Worst fleece designs?

    This is intended to be mostly a funny post.

    What fleece designs do you think are bad ideas?

    Ex - I have a donut print on a blue background, with scattered brown sprinkles. The sprinkles look...

    Re: Meet my Guinea Pigs!

    I had that cage for my first pair of boy pigs. The box says it is 2x4foot. I thought it was good to start. It is literally the largest cage the store had. I highly recommend upgrading to a c&c cage....
  13. Cleaning: Re: Best way to brush/shake out fleece if you cannot do it outside?

    I would agree with shaking them into a trash can (like the kind/size you put out at the curb for the trash man). I have a house, but I shake and brush my fleece into a trash can outside. I do shake...

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    Ok to update instead of a new thread...either Gimbly or Little Bear is producing a LOT of 'boar glue'. I've picked it off from inside their houses maybe 3 or 4 times now. I haven't noticed it with...

    Adopt vs. Buy: Re: Impulse buyers, stupid questions, etc

    I'm grateful we only see cats and dogs. Another branch of the chain I work at see exotics. I'd probably quit my job very fast if I had to deal with that, because most of the exotics calls comes from...
  16. Pet Stores: Re: PetSmart and Petco Animals ( I need better titles)

    An easier thing to do would be to purchase only online or from stores that don't sell live animals. Don't forget about stores that sell animals like Petsense, Pet Supplies Plus, Pet Supermarket and...

    His eye is back to having a lot of build up. It is red around his iris. Need to make a follow up appt for him but my work schedule is screwy.

    Adopt vs. Buy: Re: Impulse buyers, stupid questions, etc

    Oh I forgot the whole reason I made the post...the gal today said 'are guinea pigs the ones that run on the wheels?'. Luckily she listened to when I explained to her how that would damage their spine.

    Adopt vs. Buy: Impulse buyers, stupid questions, etc

    I work at a vet in a pet store. I get a lot of annoying/stupid guinea pig questions. I hate impulse buyers and people who don't google. There's no other way to put it. Instead of calling me and...
  20. How Many: Re: Do pigs know if there's other pigs in the room?

    That's similar to what happened with my boys. After Bruin was pts, I moved Little Bear's cage next to Chico and Amigo. They either didn't care, or didn't know they were there. Little Bear was still...

    Do guinea pigs know if there are others around? For example, I have a 6 foot folding table with one cage with 2 boys on top, and underneath is my other cage with my other 2 boys. Do the boys know...

    Cleaning: Re: Sanitizing old cage for new pigs

    When I got a used c&c + fleece set up from my local rescue, I sprays the coroplast with vinegar water. I also bought used cage grids, but whether or not that had any 'guinea pig scent' is unknown.

    Behavior: Re: Taming my piggies

    Pigs are prey animals. You coming at them with hands and chasing them are both threatening. Chasing them is making it much worse. Some pigs may accept being picked up and pet. Others may not and you...

    Yes they absolutely need vet visits just like cats and dogs. An annual exam is a good place to start. Establish a vet now so when illness strikes you know where to go.

    My boy Gimbly was laying down after eating and started to make a hiccuping sound. He wandered around the cage for maybe half a minute making this noise (possibly in distress or confused?) and then...
