    General: Re: Piggy dealing with loss

    I'm so sorry that you lost Leo, and when it's unexpected, it sometimes hurts even more. Although having been in a similar situation not long ago, I can only tell you how I handled it.

    Fleece: Re: Can portable washing machines wash fleece?

  9. Diet: Re: Help - My guinea pig ate part of a puppy pad??

    Cavies LOVE the blue plastic on puppy pads! :ohmy: If you use them, you must fold this part under so that #1 they can't see it, and #2 they can't get to it. If you use puppy pads, best course of...

    Skin Problems: Re: Suspected Fungal Infection, Next Steps?

    That's probably o.k. in warm weather. However, I always dry my cavies with a hairdryer set on "low", use a diffuser, and keep my hand between the piggy and the dryer, fluffing the hair as I go. In...
