  1. Bedding: Re: Is Lavender Scented Bedding Safe?

    No. Do not use ANYTHING scented for your pigs. They are prone to upper respiratory infections and should be as scent free as possible.

    You'll get the hang of it. Don't give up, we all had to start somewhere!
  3. Re: Goodnight Domino, Love you forever

    It always pains me to hear someone has lost a piggie. It's especially hard when you know it's coming, and so unbelievably painful and difficult when you have to make that last decision.

    I could...

    Scooter was never one to love being picked. Punkin didnt mind, and Leo still doesnt but hes improving. Punkin learned first during his illness and Scooter now also does this, because of the extreme...

    Re: She’s here!

    I found hay racks are a waste of time. Every pig I've ever had just simply pulled out strands of hay until finding the one they want at that moment. I just pile hay in the corners now, adding a fresh...

    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    Looks like this is hopefully the final update for Scooter on this issue.



    Scooter's weight is hovering between 1200-1250. He is a very active, happy boy again. He has not had any...

    Re: She’s here!

    She's going to gain weight quick regardless. My boys when we first got them, gained weight at a rate of 50-100 grams per week. Not sure how much your girl is going to gain per week, but you should...

    Sick: Re: Pneumonia

    I'm very happy that your girl is improving!

    At this point I will add that due to Scooters' infection, the severity and location, he required 4 courses of azithromycin before we were ready to say...
  12. Re: Spots' Medical Thread, was Piggy of 1 year old biting me

    Trimethoprim sulfate. Definitely watch his appetite on this medication. It's not as hard as, say, Baytril, but it DID affect all of my own pigs appetites. Scooter wouldn't eat at all on this...
  13. Re: Spots' Medical Thread, was Piggy of 1 year old biting me

    It depends. It depends on the medicine and his weight, and whether or not he's eating and drinking normally. If he's not eating and drinking enough and his weight drops, you'll need to use the...

    Please keep us updated on how he's doing!
  15. URI: Re: URI, done with antibiotics, now not eating and tilting head, loss of balance

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I was hoping she would pull through.

    It makes me happy that you found it in your heart to find a couple of little girls to give your love to. I'm sure they need it...
  16. Re: Spots' Medical Thread, was Piggy of 1 year old biting me

    By all means keep an eye on him if you feel something is off. After all, no one knows your pig better than you. But the numbers I see tell me your pig is very stable.
  17. Re: Spots' Medical Thread, was Piggy of 1 year old biting me

    So if I read correctly, and those numbers are in grams, hes lost roughly 50 grams since December 26th?

    I have to say, those numbers are fairly typical of a stable pig. I wouldn't worry about it at...

    8 ounces is a LOT of water. I don't think both of my boys put together drink that in a WEEK. Every pigs water consumption is different. I did find that when Sly was nearing a molar surgery, he would...

    Sick: Re: Pneumonia

    A few days, if I remember correctly. The biggest difference I noted was that azithromycin didnt seem to affect his appetite. May not be the same for you.
  21. Pellets: Re: How much pellets should I be feeding my Guinea Pigs?

    Just remember that pigs are just as different as people. Just because they've gained weight, doesn't necessarily mean they are overweight.
  22. Pellets: Re: How much pellets should I be feeding my Guinea Pigs?

    Pigs should get roughly 1/8th of a cup of pellets, per pig, per day.

    Feeding pellets to 4 pigs at once may be difficult to police, however. What do your pigs weight?
