    Chewing: Re: Do Guinea Pigs ever Swallow?

    If they didn't swallow, where would all that poop come from? lol
  5. Skin Problems: Re: Guinea Pig appears to have a sore any idea what it is?

    Looks like a trichofolliculoma, which is benign and usually doesn't cause problems. See http://guinealynx.info/trichofolliculoma.html.

    Possibly Pregnant: Re: Rescue Pigs Pregnancy Journey

    So happy the delivery went OK, and so very sad about the new little lethal. But as Guinea Pig Papa says, they couldn't be in better hands.
  7. Medications: Re: 0.87ml Baytril - Is this dose too high?

    Poop soup wouldn't hurt. Just mix a bean with a little water and syringe it to her. Cecal poop would be better, but the donor is usually understandably very hesitant to give it up, so a bean will...

    Bullying: Re: Do I need a to separate my guineas?

    There are a few things you can try.

    First, make sure every hidey has two doors. One-door hideys are just invitations for one pig to trap another and get its face bitten.

    Second, make sure...
  10. Medications: Re: 0.87ml Baytril - Is this dose too high?

    The syrup doesn't dilute the dosage. It's just makes it somewhat palatable. Baytril tastes HORRIBLE.

    Bullying: Re: Do I need a to separate my guineas?

    You sure they're both female? You've turned them over and compared their private parts?
  12. General: Re: I have a lonely piggie! What should I do?

    Neutering can be expensive, but the cost varies widely from city to city, and even within the same city. I'd call around to exotic vets and see what they'd charge.

    Any surgery can be dangerous. ...
  13. Medications: Re: 0.87ml Baytril - Is this dose too high?

    I'd give only half the dose tonight and call the vet in the morning. I wonder if they meant to say give that dose once per day, which is within the guidelines. Given twice a day, it should be...

    I doubt that he swallowed it, but keep an eye on his poop production to make sure nothing is going wrong.

    You'll do far better to line the inside of the cage with plexiglass than with fleece. If...

    Teeth: Re: Tooth fallen out?

    It's not unusual.

    You need to keep a close eye on it. If things go normally, the tooth will grow back out again, and the only "treatment" that may be needed is that his bottom incisor on that...

    Fleece: Re: Looking for no sew fleece liner option

    I used fleece for years and never had a liner. I used wood pellets underneath, laid the fleece down on top, and put weights (bricks, stones, etc.) along the edges to keep them from digging.
