    Hay: Re: Orchard Grass Versus Timothy Hay

    It looks like the difference in calcium is not that significant. I am not sure where second or third cut timothy fits in the chart, as it contains overall and then different amts for prebloom,...

    Hay: Re: Orchard Grass Versus Timothy Hay

    Orchard grass is perfectly fine. Timothy is typically a readily-available grass hay, which is why you hear about it more.

    Where to Order?: Re: Is There Some Way To Buy Hay In Bulk?

    I first ordered this through Pet Food Direct a few months ago when pinky pointed out the free shipping on the 50lb box. I ordered the orchard grass that time since she had had good luck. It was...

    Ah, there is just nothing better than the warmth and smell of a lovely new little being (sigh) ... enjoy every moment. She is beautiful, and glad you are both doing well. Congratulations :)
  5. Pellets: Re: My vet says pellets should only be given as a treat....?

    My current vet is Dr. Diane Poliakof in Elmwood Park. I have been going to her for about 3 or so years, and I cannot say enough good things about her. She is very honest about where she has seen...
  6. Pellets: Re: My vet says pellets should only be given as a treat....?

    There are many very qualified and experienced vets and guinea pig owners alike that agree that a pelletless diet is best. Calcium content and source in pellets can be a significant issue for many...

    Fleece: Re: Zorb Vs. U-Haul

    Zorb shrinks A LOT. You don't need multiple layers - one is definitely plenty. Years ago, I made my first liners of fleece, Zorb and PUL on the bottom. Even with one layer of Zorb, they take quite a...

    Neutering/Spaying: Re: I feel like this is all my fault

    We make the best decisions we can based on the info we have at the time. You could not have imagined this would happen, and you need to forgive yourself. This is tragic, but this is absolutely not...
  9. Vet: Re: Olive just seems "off"? Instinct or something actually wrong? How to tell?

    If it indeed does seem like gas, another thing you can consider is simethicone - you can find it at any drug store in the infant medication area. It's a medicine to help break up gas bubbles. You'd...
  10. Vet: Re: Olive just seems "off"? Instinct or something actually wrong? How to tell?

    On the medicine label it should say how many mg/ml, just before or just after the name of the medicine.

    1.5 lbs is a small piggie. I don't know what impact this would have on how she feels or how...
  11. Vet: Re: Olive just seems "off"? Instinct or something actually wrong? How to tell?

    Is it cold where she is being kept? Is her weight normal? Are there any other possible explanations?
    If you think this is the start of bloat, others have used things like vibrating pads to get gas...
  12. Vet: Re: Olive just seems "off"? Instinct or something actually wrong? How to tell?

    The dosing will depend on the concentration of the medicine in suspension. Here are typical doses in mg of medicine per kg of pig (link below). If you post the details from the medicine and olive's...

    Re: Allergies to Specific Pig Breeds

    I would also wonder if there was possibly something else on her that you are allergic to. Have you given her a bath since you got her? It could be residual from a bedding she was kept on or a soap...

    What does your lease agreement specifically say about pets? How did they know you have the guinea pigs, and why is the neighbor not in the same pickle? And what "violation" did they give you - did...
  15. Skin Problems: Re: Guinea pig with skin problems & question about medicine

  16. Urine: Re: Blood in Urine. Vet says NO UTI or Stones. Any idea?

    Ditto pinky - I would look again for stones.

    There is also a condition that is an inflammation/irritation that can cause blood in the urine. I had a piggie that had chronic issues, and had on...

    Not Eating: Re: Please help!!! Piggy so sick after surgery

    Are you feeding him just critical care? I swear by canned pumpkin for getting weight back on. Try really getting a lot in him at each feeding.
  19. C&C: Re: Putting wire grids inside chloroplast bottom?

    I agree that it should be fine. I could see the bottom connectors getting a bit icky if poo gets squished in there, but you could always snap them out and soak them every now and then. It looks nice...

    Hay: Re: KMS Timothy + Crickets

    Try not to let this ruin your opinion of them. Perhaps the person on the phone had an off day. Perhaps they see enough bugs that a few extras don't seem like a big deal.

    Re: midwest cage - are they any good?

    And I fall on the other side. I much prefer the Midwest over C&C. I find them easy to set up, move, rearrange, clean. I can even toss the liner into the wash machine if I want. I love them.
