  1. Aggression: Re: My Guinea Pig is teeth chattering at me, and he hasn't done that before.

    It's likely nothing. Guinea pigs get weirded out over the strangest things. Get him a tasty treat, like a small slice of cucumber or a baby carrot. Bring him out to eat it with you. He'll start...

    Injury: Re: Not using front right paw?

    She's trying to hide her pain and protect her leg at the same time. Guinea pigs are prey animals and will hide it as much as they can, to avoid appearing weak to a predator.

    Injury: Re: Not using front right paw?

    Never give your pig aspirin. It can be toxic to them. There are much safer alternatives, such as metacam, but it would require a vet visit.

    One of my boys, Sly, would injure himself the same way...

    Injury: Re: Chippy Eye Removal

    If he's drinking on his own that's wonderful. That's a great sign.

    I know what you mean, about needing to not lose him. I know it all too well, and recently enough to feel it with you. Have...

    Injury: Re: Chippy Eye Removal

    It's only been a few days. Even after dental surgery, I always found that it took Sly a good week before he was back even close to his normal self again.

    Try and be patient with regards to...
  6. Treats: Re: my guinea pigs dont like apple wood chew sticks

    Some pigs will chew them, and some won't. There really isn't anything you can do to "make" them like it more.

    My boys have always loved toilet paper tubes. If you try them, make sure all the...

    Weight Loss: Re: Weight loss and pinkish urine

    The bright red blood is an indication that it may be bladder stones. She really needs to see a vet right away.

    Weight Loss: Re: Weight loss and pinkish urine

    If she has lost weight (You really need to weigh her on a weekly basis) and there appears to be pink urine in the cage, she needs to see a vet. If she's lost noticeable weight without you weighing...

    Very good news that the surgery went well, barbaramudge . Also glad to see that Chippy is up and around and seems to be doing OK. I will be keeping tabs on this thread looking for more good news.

    Re: Display problems

    The last thing I could suggest is a different browser. I'm not sure if Apple allows you to install a different browser, such as Google Chrome. But if it does, it might be worth a shot.

    I just...

    If there's a way to clear the cache on your phones browser, try that. I use Android also and I know that I can clear cache from there. It may be that simple on yours too.

    Frustrated: Re: Found abandoned guinea pigs

    So very happy to hear the good news! Little Bear hit the jackpot when you took he and his brother in!
  14. Size: Re: How Many Piggies Can Be Housed in here?

    I have two boars. They are in a 40sq foot indoor enclosure and they absolutely love the room. I would definitely say keep it small as they'll enjoy having whatever room they have to run.
  15. General: Re: Guinea pig sneezing more than usual

    You may just have dusty hay. You could also have dry air in the house. If her breathing is fine, there no labouring, and there is no discharge from the eyes or nose she's probably just fine.

  16. Water: Re: Guinea Pig struggling to drink from water bottle. Nozzle is too big?

    I use something just like this as a travel water bottle for my pigs when they have to go to the vet. It's more geared for hamsters and may be just what you need.

    It looks like the dosage you are giving should be fine. Little Remedies appears to be the same as Ovol.

    Bloated: Re: Gripe Water?

    Use the simethicone. Not only is it recommended, it's one of the most important items you should keep in a piggy emergency kit.

    It should be the infant simethicone, however. You can get no name...
