    So glad Oreo is feeling better, and thank you so much for updating us on her condition!
  2. Crusty Eyes: Re: Eye problem. Opaque, crusty. Whatís going on here?

    Looks like a hay poke to me. Eye injuries are painful. She needs to see a vet ASAP before it gets bad enough to lose the eye.

    The vet can prescribe drops to help.

    Behavior: Re: What is he doing???

    My guess is, he doesn't like it. Scooter is a funny little dude. Whenever my work radio beeps, he growls at it. Sometimes I call him a certain nickname, and he growls at me.

    Just yesterday...

    Hair Loss: Re: Mental Issues? Is it possible?

    I can't tell you how sorry I am. If you had told me ten years ago that I could love a guinea pig as much as I have all of my boys, I'd have thought you were crazy. Boy how things have changed.

    Hair Loss: Re: Mental Issues? Is it possible?

    I'm sorry you're going through this with Nugget.

    $162 does sound about right for a teeth trim with sedation. That's about in the ballpark with what my vet charges, but I'm in Canada so it may...
