    Thank you all. This is the tough part about having pets, their loss is just awful when they have been so special to you for so long.

    That is quite a steep quote. My boy had the procedure done today and it was $225 including anesthetic. He also was given subcutaneous hydration and pain medication as part of that cost. Is she...

    Not Eating: Off of Pellets and Hay

    Hi all,

    My boy Joey has stopped eating his pellets and hay (within the last 24-48 hours). It's as though he has just lost his appetite. He is also refusing most veggies (including lettuce) and...

    Hay: Re: I'm allergic to Hay

    Hay cubes are not ideal. Try having someone else pack hay into brown paper bags that you can easily just plop into the cage- you will have minimal contact with the hay. Not feeding hay is NOT an...

    From what I read, it was planned before? He even made sure to throw tear gas canisters into the theatre before going in to open fire. So awful indeed. The youngest victim- three MONTHS old.

    General: Re: Price of Owning A Guinea Pig

    General: Re: Is this normal?

    Would an Abby & a American get along?
    The breed doesn't matter. What will determine whether or not they get along is their personality.


    Is it normal that they shed?
    Yes. Pigs do shed!
