    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    Update for Scooter:

    I have waited for some time to make this post. I so deeply wish it was for both Scooter AND Punkin........

    Scooters weight has been trending upwards, and he is now just a...

  4. Newborn Pups: Re: Baby developing slowly, nursing constantly

    I was following this thread earlier. I didn't have anything productive to add, but I was hopeful your girl would be ok.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a pig is so heartbreaking, especially...

    Medications: Re: Bene Bac questions.

    Yes. If she has small poops, shes probably not getting enough to eat. As long as your pig is on an antibiotic, a probiotic should also be administered 1-2 hrs after.
  6. Not Eating: Re: Not eating after URI treatment (possibly because of Batryil? Antibiotic Intoleran

    We had the same problem with Scooter, and with Punkin but to a lesser degree. You should discuss with your vet about switching antibiotics but in the meantime, you MUST get as much Critical Care...

    Medications: Re: Bene Bac questions.

    Are you using the pet gel? If so, yes. Give her 1/2 a gram roughly 1-2 hours after each dose of antibiotic. Make sure you monitor her, and weigh her once daily, preferably first thing in the...

    Re: I'm so sorry.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine the level of grief you feel right now.

    It was an accident. Something changed in your home, something out of your normal habit. Remember your...

    Crusty Eyes: Re: Stain in Corner of Guinea Pig's Eye

    Gripe water should be ok. You can give him a few mils every few hours.

    As far as checking on him through the night, that's a personal thing. If he were mine I would, more out of worry than...

    I honestly can't answer that. I would think personally it might actually hurt, but I don't know that for sure.

    Crusty Eyes: Re: Stain in Corner of Guinea Pig's Eye

    If it is bloat, you can get some Ovol children's gas drops from the pharmacy. That, and I have found that a vibrating toothbrush, or a Gillette Power razor with the razor removed under a towel for a...

    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    Update:

    Just a quick one this time. Scooter's weight continues to climb little by little (1136 this morning) He is still being given two syringes of Critical Care per day just for...
  16. Re: Unplanned adoption, seeking input on my check list

    Thanks for the update! Glad to hear Nutter Butter has a good home that will keep him, spoil him and love him for who he is. Couldn't have happened to a cuter pig!

    Bathing: Re: Cleaning a white guinea pig?

    You can certainly try giving him a "butt bath" as it were. It's entirely possible that he's mourning the passing of his cagemate, and is lonely and bored and can't be bothered getting up as much as...

    Wheezing: Re: Loud Wheezing Noise

    There's a good chance he's got something stuck in his throat. A good loud cough or two should clear it, but if it persists he should see a vet. I've had a couple of pigs that did that, and both...

    Introductions: Re: help naming 2.0

    I thought of changing Lava's name to Magma. Technically Magma is still Lava, but you could call her Mags or Maggie for short. Just a rambling on my part.

    Cute piggies!
