    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    Wonderful news! Thanks for keeping us up-to-date.
  2. In Heat: Re: Is this normal, white discharge on genitals?

    What difference does it make?? For heaven's sake, let your cavies have some fun without obsessing about it!

    Boars react very differently to neutering. Some lose virtually all their libido, and...
  3. Sneezing: Re: Frequent Sneezing with no other symptoms

    Unfortunately, I have no answer for you, but can offer a shared experience. My little boys are now almost five months old and have been with us since they were six weeks old. Rascal has sneezed since...

    Biting: Re: Gloves piggies can't bite through?

    I hate to tell you this, but there is no least traumatic route! :ohmy: Most all of them will scream and kick and swear that you are killing them! You simply can't be tentative with the process and...

    @Smileandnod, I commend you for taking the time and having the patience to answer all these questions. I'm afraid that I lack the patience to do this. The OP should be doing her research and homework...

    Biting: Re: Gloves piggies can't bite through?

    Sure......that is what we call the "burrito method". Wrap the cavy securely--roll her up in a small hand towel and put her in your lap. I'm right-handed so the piggy is wrapped tightly lying against...

    Re: Not new, but meet new baby girl

    That, no doubt, was me! The two in my avatar are/were Chester and Maya. Maya is the only female that I have had in this piggy era. I currently have two four month old boars after being pigless for...
  10. Newborn Pups: Re: Help with sexing, feeding, and info on neutering my new pups

    No, I don't think it's valid. Cavies don't live outdoors where there is increased critter activity in the summer and they're more apt to come in contact with all sorts of creepy-crawlies. I have had...
  11. Re: How old does a boy guinea pig need to be neutered

    You have no answer because every Vet has a different criteria. Generally, the cavy must be at least five months old and there may be a size/weight criteria that is applicable as well. Have you looked...

    Diet: Re: Wanting to switch over to KMS Hayloft

    @scootie.......thanks so much for the feedback! I'm interpreting this to mean that bluegrass will be harvested any day now? Perhaps I can get a more definitive date if I call the company.

    Diet: Re: Wanting to switch over to KMS Hayloft

    Didn't I just say that? Thanks for corroborating my opinion. Happy that you like it, but what about your cavies' response?

    My boys have had their new hay and pellets for about a week now and they...
  15. Sick: Re: Small Pellet Shaped Poops & Not Drinking (Piggie on Meds)

    Apparently, you are making progress. That's great!

    Keep in mind that this is "tough love". Don't be in such a hurry to add any vegetables back into their diet. They will be more inclined to eat...

    No, pay attention to what @bpatters just said and follow her instructions. And, as she says, "there's no such thing as too fidgety".

    General: Re: Pigs won't eat hay/picky with hay

    It works every time with my young boys. My previous older cavy was wise to my tricks. lol

    I feed my boys a large salad for dinner and they eat in about three rounds at the plate. After they have...
  19. Sick: Re: Small Pellet Shaped Poops & Not Drinking (Piggie on Meds)

    I wholeheartedly agree. I would suspect broccoli as the offender as it is a "gassy" vegetable. What @bpatters is suggesting is an elimination diet in which you add one veggie at a time back into his...

    Infection: Re: I need help identifying an issue

    Are you sure that it isn't a nipple? Cavies, both boars and sows, have two nipples....one on each side. Check to see if there is another matching on the other side.

    The owners, Dan and Lacie, seem very customer oriented and likely easy to work with. Before you purchase, do look for coupon codes. I found them on a site called CouponsAccess.
