  1. Bathing: Re: Can I bathe him more than once a month?

    Most baby oils are mineral oil but commonly contain fragrances as well, which are quite harsh and may cause some irritation of the skin.

    Re: I need help being vegan

    Nope, Tresemme don't test on animals. However Alberto-Culver (who own Tresseme and test on animals, I think?), were recently bought out by Unilever (who definitely do test on animals).

    General: Re: Guinea pig death

    Hi gagaluver,
    If you do decide to take your guinea pig to the vet, or decide to neuter your male (you have a male and female piggie, I think?), you'll need to take them to an exotics vet.

    Bathing: Re: Guinea Pig Shampoo?

    Yes, I was going to add that, but didn't quite know how to word it correctly.


    It's great! Soap gets such a bad rap for drying out skin, apparently we should be showering with body washes and...

    Re: Disheartened.. going vegan..

    Hi!
    Congratulations on choosing to become vegan! I know how difficult it can be when the people you are living with don't follow the same diet as yourself.

    Bathing: Re: Guinea Pig Shampoo?

    Hm, when I say natural, I mean 100% natural. As in made from only goat's milk and vegetable oils. No added essential oils, fragrances or colours. They're not tested on animals because, well, there...

    Bathing: Re: Guinea Pig Shampoo?

    Hi!
    I don't really bother with the guinea pig-specific liquid shampoos, as they usually contain chemical/unnatural ingredients. As for those general rodent shampoos, I don't think they're...
  9. Bedding: Re: Do pigs need materials to make a nest?

    I was just wondering if you should wash them four times when they're initially bought, or every time you remove them from the cage to be cleaned? Thank you in advance!

    According to NomNom, her parents re-sold her guinea pig against her will.

    Pet Stores: Re: Hate petstores more now.

    Thanks. It's just that Frillint's other thread I was reading seemed very pro-pet shops. I suppose when your beloved cavy is involved, opinions can change pretty quick.

    Behavior: Re: Dominance debate

    I am Sorry.
    I get very angry and defensive when people make comments about their pigs like "they're too loud, they poop too much, they eat too much, they stink."

    So, you don't consider kids running around and playing as normal behaviour? You vision of "normal" is very "abnormal".

    Play: Re: How does Amy look now??

    Your pigs' dropping in the last photo seem quite small. (It might just be the photo though.)
    And they are also not a consistent colour. I'm no cavy diet or droppings expert but, I'm guessing that...

    I agree. I also think that you should have to go through the same registration process as you do when buying a cat or dog.

    Re: Me and my Piggy new here

    If you own a dog and know you can't provide a secure home, why on earth would you buy a guinea pig?

    If your parents truly forced you to sell back the guinea pig, I think they need to learn a...
