    Fleece: Re: which would be better?

    I'm quite interested in this discussion as I need to make new cage liners and accessories in the near future. I have always used blizzard fleece with a layer of uHaul pad sewn between the fleece. It...

    Nutrition: Re: Good vitamin C sources?

    Don't give up on peppers! I have found that a cavy's tastes can change just like ours do. Sparky wouldn't eat his peppers for 2-3 months, and then they became one of his favorite parts of his dinner....

    Sick: Re: Sparky's Medical Thread

    Sparky was discharged from the hospital one month ago today, so I thought I would post an update.

    He's doing better than we could have imagined! His energy has returned, his hair has grown back,...

    Bedding: Re: Fleece or wood shavings?

    The short answer is "no". When it comes to a handheld vac, you absolutely get what you pay for. The one I use isn't cheap, but it has all the requisite features for a vac that will last and that you...

    C&C: Re: Amazon c&c grids

    Your best bet when working with Coroplast is to use a high-temperature glue gun. I find it invaluable for all sorts of projects and none more so than cage construction. The glue dries very quickly...
  9. Keeping Cool: Re: Summer haircut, and guinea pig doesn't drink much water

    Do you by chance have a Costco membership or know someone who does? I bought my hair cutting kit from a Costco (it's not available online) for around $30. It has everything that you will need...
  10. Keeping Cool: Re: Summer haircut, and guinea pig doesn't drink much water

    A temperature of 77⁰F is approaching too warm for a haired cavy and anything above 80⁰F can be downright deadly, especially if they can burrow under fleece. I would continue to provide the cold...

    Pellets: Re: Guinea Pig Won't Eat Pellets

    It's not as though these pellets are your only option, and the simple fact that Snickers simply doesn't like them despite repeated attempts to entice him. Why not consider donating the pellets to a...
  13. Size: Re: What's a better layout for 5 sows - 14x2 (L-shaped) or 7x4 (rectangle)?

    A 2x anything cage quickly becomes too small. If I had the room I would certainly go wider than two grids. There are many configurations that you can make with three grids wide which is generally the...

    Introductions: Re: Female and male pigs living together?

    Neutering is quite safe when done by a cavy saavy vet. :cool: I have literally had all my boars neutered with no problems. Of course, it IS a surgery and all surgeries carry risks, but the risk...

    You really have little to fear with regard to giving him pedialyte. It is simply an electrolyte solution to replenish those lost in diarrhea, dehydration, etc. It does have a little dextrose added...

    Many water bottles leak and I find that it is the individual bottle, rather than any specific brand. I've tried a lot of different water bottles, but admittedly not the Choco Nose.

    Urine: Re: Different coloured wee?! Is it normal?

    The orange color could simply be normal. Often when urine sits for a while and oxidizes, it becomes an orange/brown color. OTOH, it could be the result of something she ate, but I've never seen my...
