  1. Vet Costs: Re: Guinea Pig Insurance: Yay or nay? And who?

    An important distinction with pet insurance is that pre-existing conditions are still a thing with it. So the ideal would be to get it when your pigs are babies, or as early as possible before...

    Re: All about my herd//HOUSING HELP??

    I've seen mixed-sex herds with multiple males work, but it's very, very rare that it will. The herd I have personally met with multiple males was one where the vast majority of the pigs were older...

    I watch Skinnypigs1 and Piggiepigpigs. I don't 100% agree with everything either of them do but generally they give good care advice.

    Best of luck. I'm sorry you and Colonel have had to deal with this so many times. I'll be thinking about him and hoping for the best.

    Play: Re: Teaching Pigs to Use a Cuddle Cup

    That's a good idea, putting them in it for lap time. I'll keep it in the cage to give them the opportunity to figure it out, too.

    Play: Teaching Pigs to Use a Cuddle Cup

    Hi guys, it's been a while! I've been having fun taming my new babies, and a friend sent me a couple cuddle cups. The problem is the pigs aren't terribly interested in them. They'll sit on top of...
  10. Adopting: Re: Advice needed ... fostering or adopting and issues with surrenders

    I haven't fostered, but I've looked into it.

    My local rescue pays all vet bills for their foster pigs, and you pay for food and other general care costs. So if your rescue works similarly,...

    Feet: Re: I think my guinea pig has a spur, would like some other opinions.

    Some pigs are just prone to them. I had one pig who just kept growing spurs throughout his life, and many who didn't. They never bothered him, though. I just cut them down when they got long.

    I wouldn't worry too much about driving a pig that distance. Every year or so I drive from Maryland to Florida with my two pigs (about 15 hours), generally all in one go instead of broken up into...

    I'm devastated to say I lost Simon today.

    When I got back from my Christmas vacation a few days ago and picked him up from boarding, he was hiding in his house and his nose was snotty. I was mad...

    You were there today? I was too! I wonder if we passed by each other.

    Bacon is a real cutie. I understand the conflicted feelings (I've got them too), but congratulations!
