    Behavior: Re: Guinea Pig is behaving very differently

    This really sounds like mites or some other pain or itching irritation. Does he have a large enough cage for exercise, at least 8 square feet?
  2. Re: hi all I used to be active here a couplen of years back but got in active

    Welcome back. I love the names of your guinea pigs!
  3. Sneezing: Re: Guinea pig sneezing even after talking medication

    Sneezing, coughing, and a clicking sound when breathing are classic symptoms of an upper respiratory infection. If that's the case, an antibiotic is needed as this is a serious illness that will not...

    Re: Not a guinea piggy mom any more

    That's really touching, Guinea Pig Papa. It's so hard to look past the pain and remember how much fun and happiness and joy you had over the years.

    You have my sympathy, 4cuca71. These little...

    Blankets: Re: Crocheted/knit guinea pig beds

    If they don’t nibble on the yarn, I would think crocheted dividers hanging from the cage would be fun. I’m picturing hippy-type stings of flowers, or corner awnings with curtains that tie back.

    Fleece: Re: Worst fleece designs?

    I can’t stop buying fleece. I love the color combos so I have lots of different colors. I go for brights and neons, but I made the mistake of getting a floral with a tiny black polka dot background....
  8. Behavior: Re: Baby guinea pigs afraid in their cage, not of us

    They are pretty young and will need time to get used to the sounds of the household. It’s so good that they were handled, they should be pretty social.

    It might help to have some calm music...
  9. General: Re: What to do when you're down to 1 pig and you aren't planning on getting more?

    How is your current pig doing on her own? Is she eating, maintaining weight, active in her cage, and interacting with you? I have a single pig who was alone when I adopted her from the Humane Society...

    Injury: Re: Sore on baby guinea pig's ankle

    Swollen and painful sounds like an injury that has become infected. If this is on the hock area of the leg that touches the floor when your guinea pig sits in one place, it could be podormatitis. A...
  11. Behavior: Re: Random Loud Wheeking From a 3 month old baby male guinea pig

    If you could record it and post it here that might help. A popping sound coming from his nose when he’s just breathing is not normal and could indicate a respiratory issue.

    Behavior: Re: Taming my piggies

    It’s important to be able to handle them. They usually don’t like being picked up and petting is something they learn to tolerate for the most part. If they will enter a tunnel or something similar,...

    UTI: Re: Recurring UTIs

    That looks like an awful lot of blood, I doubt that's hormonal. When mine had blood spots it was just smears on the fleece, nothing close to this. I'm glad it hasn't happened again, but it would be...
  16. Fighting: Re: Piggie bullying his brothers and I canít fix it!!!!

    They should have multiples of everything, like water bottles, hay piles, pellets, and hideys. Their hideys should have two entrances, so one pig can't be cornered or trapped by another, that becomes...

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    His eye definitely looks better so if the drops are easy to use, I would just continue as long as he is comfortable.

    The EmerAid Sustain looks like a good product and the website says it’s a...

    UTI: Re: Recurring UTIs

    You mention she has been on antibiotics for two weeks. Was there any blood during that time? The reason I ask is it may not be her bladder, it may be hormonal. Guinea pigs have a heat cycle about...

    UTI: Re: Recurring UTIs

    If her feet look sore, dry or irritated, coconut oil is very soothing. In the winter when the air is dry, I use coconut oil a few times a week to keep the skin soft on my guinea pig’s feet.

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    I would agree. If the eye is paralyzed and irritated, why go through that each day. From what others have said, the surgery is relatively straight forward. I hope you can get some weight on him and...

    Boars need space to get along with each other. So I would start by making sure the cage is large enough. Boars should have 10 square feet, or a cage one size larger than usually recommended for the...
