    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    Be sure you keep her from drinking any of the Epsom salts soaking water, and rinse her feet very well after using it. Upside down bottle caps make good pig foot baths.

    Also make sure the coconut...

    Re: Adding a 3rd guinea pig

    A 2x4 is not nearly large enough for three pigs. You need to expand the cage ASAP, or you may have chewed ears or all-out war.

    Re: Adding a 3rd guinea pig

    I've introduced a third pig before. It's a little more nerve-wracking than introducing two singletons, but they usually adjust. But you'll need a very large cage, and all hideys will need to have...

    Sick: Re: Bella lethargic

    All lettuces are mostly water. You could just as easily soak another variety and get the liquid into her without the needless bulk of the iceberg lettuce in her stomach.

    Re: Have you tried?

    Did the vet do x-rays for arthritis?

    Pigs don't usually bite, but when they do, it's because they're in pain. Does your pig have any signs of mites? Itching? Hair loss? Mites can make a pig...

    Cage: Re: 2x4 or 3x4 for arthritis guinea pig?

    I agree with SSLee. But I would recommend fastening the cage to the table so that it can't be knocked off. You can fasten it down with bungee cords, and those will be easy to remove when you need...
  7. Bedding: Re: Shredded paper bedding and/or waterproof bed pads under fleece?

    The main reason I'd avoid it is that paper is messy and smelly.

    Fleece won't wick and stay dry unless there's something absorbent underneath.

    Re: Have you tried?

    There is no research on CBD oil and pigs, and not much anywhere else. All we've got is anecdotal reports, and those are not reliable. I wouldn't give it to my pigs.

    Behavior: Re: Won't Get Back Down Ramp?

    Space bits of food (something she really llikes) down the ramp, and remove the food from the loft. She'll come down.

  12. Cleaning: Re: Real-world feedback on fleece cage lining, please!

    Actually, two bags of pellets in a large cage (pellets 3-4 inches deep) will last a year without changing the pellets. Ask me how I know this. ;)

    Injury: Re: My guinea pig is limping, what to do?

    You'll have to decide for yourself what to do. If it were me, I wouldn't have given it in the first place. But I'd certainly stop it now.

    However, you may want to talk to your vet tomorrow and...

    Does this vet routinely treat guinea pigs? Because they have so many digestive problems when taking antibiotics, those drugs are not usually given to prevent an infection, only to treat an existing...

    He thinks an infection is why she's limping? That's pretty unlikely.

    Cage: Re: 2x4 or 3x4 for arthritis guinea pig?

    A 2x4 is plenty large for an elderly, arthritic guinea pig. After she's gone, if you decide to get more pigs and need a larger cage, you can always extend it.

    If you have some extra grids (or can get some), use zip ties to create a smaller area in the cage so that her movement is restricted and the other pig can't bother her. Don't put her in a new cage,...
