    Photos: Re: Photo contest!

    Clover, who passed away on Monday, was probably our most photogenic pig. Here are a few that I really enjoy:

    Clover's in the apple orchard now...

    Last night, Clover passed away. She will have been 5 this November. She only looked at all sick yesterday--her weight had not dropped, and she was vivacious and eating the day before. Yesterday, we...

    Bloated: Re: Clover appears to have gas

    My intention was not to go against my vet's advice. She said to give Clover the recomended dose every day while on the Baytril and for 3 days after. The thing was that the recomended dose was every 3...

    Another update: Clover is acting SO much better! She's on baytril for anti-bacterial purposes in her intestines, and bene-bac as well. The vet told me to follow the dosing instructions on the...

    Just an update: Clover appears to be feeling better this morning. Though she's still lying around, she was interested in eating breakfast, as well as eating some hay. She's still eating the hay right...

    Bloated: Re: Clover appears to have gas

    So I spent about 4 hours with Clover laying on my lap tonight, gently stroking the sides where she had bulges, and she ended up having some loose stools. We gave her .15cc simethicone, and we gave...

    Bloated: Re: Clover appears to have gas

    I just thought of something... Last night I gave Clover carrot tops (5-6 sprigs, however many come on top of one carrot) for the first time. Could that be giving her a little belly ache?

    Bloated: Clover appears to have gas

    This morning, Clover was running around like normal, eating and drinking, and was BEGGING (like always) for her breakfast. Over the past few hours, however, I've noticed her just sitting in her cage,...
  12. Joy: Re: What nicknames do you give your guinea pigs?

    Nice Macbeth tribute. Clover can be:

    Clovis (don't know how that came up)
    Clovey
    Lil' C (not after the famous person)
    Muffin Top (only my dad calls her that...)
    C-lover (because a little girl...

    Animal Welfare: Re: G-force is INFURIATING me.

    I agree with you Paula. I never called her stupid, or even "yelled" at her. I merely wrote a strong e-mail stating that she had a big misconception about what a pet guinea pig is, does, and means to...

    Animal Welfare: Re: G-force is INFURIATING me.

    I really hope that s/he is joking. Disney should make a little 5 minute movie and show it before the movie, all about guinea pig care. It would seriously discourage a lot of people from purchasing...

  17. Re: Painting a wooden house with... well, housepaint?

    Thanks for all the helpful suggestions. I think that she just wanted to use up the extra paint we have. It's not super important that we paint it, she was just trying to recycle the paint. We may...

    Weight Loss: Re: Lost 1.4 ounces over 3 weeks

    Ah, I just did a little math, and it turns out Clover is actually still a little bit overweight. I'll have to make sure she runs around a little extra. Thanks for the advice!
