    Neutering/Spaying: Re: Looking for vet/benefits

    I have had many sows over the years, none were spayed, none developed ovarian cysts. On the other hand I have also had no stones in any of my guinea pigs.

    I do think there is a large genetic...
  2. Just Delivered: Re: Guinea pig just gave birth, how much bloody discharge is normal?

    The kind of discharge you are describing sounds normal to me.

    Rather than being concerned about the amount of blood be concerned about how the mother is acting. If she is acting normal, is active...

    Injury: Re: Weird Scab Below Bottom Lip

    It is boar glue, aka guinea pig ejaculate. He is almost certainly putting it there himself, it isn't anything alarming and he can clean it off on his own. It isn't healing because there is nothing to...

    They both look like American guinea pigs, aka a standard short smooth coat.

    For coat colours Coco looks like a tri-colour, a chocolate, white, and red? or gold? tri-colour. I'm not certain of the...
  5. Puberty: Re: What should I do with baby male guinea pig?

    I often see people assuming the price of having a guinea pig neutered would be lower than it actually is. Often they base this off of the cost of having a dog or cat neutered, this is often wildly...

    Re: Empty cage in need of resident

    They are probably not a good cage for reptiles simply because it would be hard to keep the heat and humidity right.

    Perhaps something like button quails/king quails (same bird, name differs...

    Bonding: Re: Sudden Aggression in Male-Female Pair

    How certain are you that she has been spayed? If I didn't know better I would say his current mounting spree might be spurred by her heat cycle but if she is spayed that should not be the case.

  10. Diet: Re: What are good quality pellets and hay for young guinea pig?

    Just for clarification young guinea pigs need an additional source of calcium for their growing bones that older guinea pigs should not have. This extra calcium can come from either young guinea pig...
  11. Sad: Re: Bought 2 Females, found out today 1 is Male?

    My personal preference in similar situations has been to get a pair of young sows to introduce to the older sow. I find the older sow takes well to much younger sows in most situations and having...

    Hay is just dried grass. There is no nutrient that hay has that grass is missing.

    Re: Witchcraft and Guinea Pigs

    Definitely move it to a different room to the guinea pigs. Ideally have a door shut between the altar and the guinea pigs, and plenty of ventilation like an open window if possible.
