  1. Allergies: Re: One of my Guineas gives me rash, but not others

    Good advice as always,@GPP. Just to piggyback on your thoughts, people often think they are allergic to cavies when it is the timothy hay in their living quarters. Very few people are allergic to the...

    Sick: Re: Chico and Amigo's med thread

    If you love red eyes, then you will appreciate pics of my dearly-departed Maya. She was the only sow and only Texel I have ever had. She was beautiful, but dumb as a stump! You can probably see that...

    Sick: Re: Chico and Amigo's med thread

    I couldn't have said it better. I had a similar experience with one of my beloved boys. We had just come home from the Vet when he started declining. I was so happy that he was able to lie in my arms...

    Sick: Re: Chico and Amigo's med thread

    Not a great reason to get another cavy right now. If Amigo crosses the Rainbow Bridge, then you will have another cavy who needs a friend. Just give Amigo lots of attention and love right now until...

    Re: Nibbler's Medical Thread

    Why are you delaying adding Simethicone to your treatment regimen? IMHO it should be an integral item in any cavy owner's first aid kit. In the event of any display of gut distress, especially if it...

    Hay: Re: I've had it with Oxbow hay

    I think that it's about time I jumped into this conversation. Sounds just like me, eh?

    Thanks to those of you who occasionally send me a PM inquiring if I'm still around and my state of health! I...
  10. Congested: Re: Info please about nasal polyps in piggy with presumptive URI

    I tend to agree with @bpatters (I usually do) regarding hay. My husband is highly allergic to timothy and we have generally used bluegrass or orchard with no problems.

    One of my current boys,...
  11. Introductions: Re: Introducing a male guinea pig to my two females

    Yes, a month is about right. It takes that long for all the previously manufactured sperm to die and for some of the testosterone to leave his body. He will be more calm with less testosterone.

    Play: Re: Tunnel recomendations

    A solution that I have used successfully for quite some time is a bent grid covered with an extra large stretchable book cover. Since it's school time, you can find the covers almost anywhere. I tend...

    Genitals: Re: Bedding stuck in testicle

    Do you have him housed on shavings? If so, switch to some other bedding immediately! The shavings have a tendency to get stuck between the penis and the penile sheath and the poor boy can then either...

    You haven't been around the Forum long enough to know my story, so here goes. Back when I briefly used wood shavings, I had this very thing happen to one of my boars. Fast forward to around the end...

    Shavings: Re: Curse the shavings!!!

    There is one other significant issue with wood shavings, especially if you have boars. They tend to get the shavings stuck on their penis and then can't retract the penis because the shavings get...
