  1. Behavior: Re: Need tips on how to groom and gain trust with Peruvian guinea pigs

    I agree with spy9doc. Don't let the piggy make the rules, otherwise nothing will change. Pick her up, play with her give her a treat while playing and when you put her back. She'll get the idea. They...

    Weight: Re: Underweight Guinea Pig

    Nothing jumps out as to what the problem is. It may be time for a trip back to the vet.
  3. Play: Re: What are some interesting floor time activities that will keep Guinea Pig excited

    Ours love just running around and exploring. They popcorn like crazy. Word of advice keep them away from the Peace Lilly, no matter how yummy it looks.
  4. Adopting: Re: Anyone Adopt of Buy Guinea Pigs from PetCo or PetSmart?

    Re: Air purifier

    What do you consider moderate price? I posted one awhile back that worked for my wife even with the hay. It was in the 200 - 300 range. But it works. This is a hepa filter and it stopped my wife's...

    Not Eating: Re: Bella Rose hasn't eaten much at all

    Good to hear. Piggys are very adept at eliciting that response from their human.
  13. General: Re: What are you guys getting your pigs for xmas?

    Just put in a order with Guinea Pig Market for 2 cozy's and pee pads, one fleece and two narrow loft fleeces. Only problem I had is I liked the space example pic but could not find it in the choices.
  14. Frustrated: Re: Refused by rescue because my cage has a second floor

    I'll second or third what was said here. Apparently this rescue's knowledge of piggys is sorely lacking. No, they are not as agile as rats but don't jump or climb? I don't think so. Ours with no...

  17. Re: Pet shop thief throws stolen guinea pig out of moving car - KRON4

    Saw this on a news feed. It takes a certain type of lowlife to do that to a defenseless animal. Hope they throw the book at them.
  18. Rescues: Re: Banning water bottles and favoring water bowls?

    I had the opposite problem with Ginger and Checkers. Both came as a pair from Petsmart and had water bottle only in the store. We go them to their new home and used water bottles, several so they...

    General: Re: Keeping pig warm

    I would set up the cage the way folks with reptiles do it. One side of the cage is kept warm with either a heating pad or light and the other is cooler so they can adjust to what suits them.

    Not Eating: Re: Paralyzed Guinea Pig, Won't Eat

    Try bell peppers for the Vit. C. not as strong as a supplement but not to shabby either. If he eats hay and other veggies it's probably not his teeth. Only way to know for sure is to set up a video...
