    Sexing: Re: need help sexing two week old guinea pigs

    First and third photos look like possible boars to me, I am unsure on the other one (with more grey on the bottom). It might help you tell for certain to feel for the penis bone, males will have a...

    Possibly Pregnant: Re: HELP my piggy is likely pregnant and getting close to time. No clue what to do!

    Very curious, the bottom looks very female, but the top where the penis would be looks quite male. Certainly might be worth getting him/her checked by the vet to see what they think.
  3. General: Re: Please help complications with sow after giving birth

    Get her to a vet ASAP, she may have prolapsed. Even if it isn't a prolapse anything hanging out post birth needs a vet urgently.

    Quarantine: Re: Introducing A Potential Piggie?

    It depends on where you are getting the new guinea pig from. If it is a reputable rescue then you may be able to skip quarantine or quarantine in the same room. If it is from a more questionable...

    Use whatever tool you are most comfortable with, just start off slowly, you could easily cut off half of what she has now and still be nowhere near the quick. It should be slightly easier because she...

    Re: Hey Guys! It's nice to meet you!

    Welcome!

    Do you know what her previous home was like and how old is might be?

    First tip I can give, which you might already be working on, is getting those nails a bit shorter for her as it...
  7. Introductions: Re: IS there really a best sex or age for a new cage mate?

    I have done about 14 bonding sessions involving two adult boars, using the same introduction method in the link guinea pig papa posted. Of those only 2 turned out poorly.
  8. Adopting: Re: Need help finding a friend for my recently single male piggy

    Generally speaking it doesn't work out well if you try and pair two dominant and stubborn boars. If neither one will back down and both are determined to be the boss it is likely to end in bloodshed....
  9. Genitals: Re: Is a white, smelly paste in a scrotal sac normal?

    The white-ish goo/paste is completely normal. It is a natural grease they secrete from glands within the sac to keep everything lubricated and they use it to scent mark their territory (this is why...

    Feet: Re: Koa's Medical Thread

    If he were mine i would start soaks and rub with cold pressed coconut oil post soaks. Though I would probably do Chlorhexidine soaks. If they don't improve/look worse with that treatment then I would...

    Grow Your Own: Re: Timothy grass

    In theory yes you could feed just timothy grass. However in practice it is a little more complicated then that.

    First problem is if the guinea pigs are not used to eating fresh grass eating...

    Sexing: Re: Sexing...is my guinea a girl?

    The answer to all of those is potentially yes. Odds are not all of your girls have gone into heat while he has been in with them so he may not have caught them, but you will need to place them all...

    That is all good news, if it is just the one and it has not burst it should be much simpler to treat. I asked about other guinea pigs as there can be a condition that causes lymph node abscesses that...

    Does it just feel like the one abscess? Is it still intact or has it burst? Does he live with other guinea pigs?

    I'm sorry your boy has this problem. Hopefully a trip to the vet can sort him out,...

    Sexing: Re: Sexing...is my guinea a girl?

    Yes I am 100% confident that is indeed a mature male guinea pig. He possesses distinctive testicles and that is obviously the opening of a penis. There is a certain knack for exposing the penis on a...

    I'm not sure where in the world you are located but that is some very bad advice from your vet. For starters guinea pigs are born capable of eating solids, and don't need their mothers milk anymore...
  20. Behavior: Re: My pig canít stop chasing the other one for poops.

    I know you have said the male wheeks for the female, but you absolutely MUST separate them now. They are both old enough to breed, and she is much too young. Guinea pigs already have a high risk of...

  22. Skin Problems: Re: Guinea pig loosing hair on one side of body and around eyes; watery eyes

  23. Skin Problems: Re: Guinea pig loosing hair on one side of body and around eyes; watery eyes

    I do have a few questions.

    What is her diet like? What is she fed, how often, how much?
    Has she been scratching?
    Is the skin underneath the patches with fur loss healthy, or is if flaky/red?...
  24. Cage: Re: What is the difference between these two cages?

    Differences are, c&c cages can be cheaper to make yourself. You can customize, or later expand the size of c&c cages. It is normally easier to source the materials for a c&c cage then tracking down...
