    Ovarian Cysts: Re: Treatment

    I've had two pigs with Ovarian Cysts over the years.

    The first was 6.5 years old when she was diagnosed. At this point she didn't have a cagemate (hers had passed) and she failed to bond with...

    General: Re: Guinea Pigs w/ other pets?

    Back when I was in university, I had guinea pigs and my one roommate had rats. They never interacted and did not live in the same room, but we never seemed to have any issues.

    Pellets: Re: Oxbow

    Just letting you know that the Oxbow Simple Harvest pellets are likely the least recommended out of Oxbow's pellet line as they still contain calcium carbonate and have a slightly higher amount of...
  5. Mites: Re: Suspect Mites: where to find ivermectin in Canada

    I was talking to some other piggy people that I know and was suggested to use this website for revolution. Revolution (selamectin) is safe for treating mites in guinea pigs. It requires a...

  7. Mites: Re: Suspect Mites: where to find ivermectin in Canada

    You could try contacting Piggles cares or All Creatures Rescue. Both organizations are based out of the Toronto area and someone there may be able to give you some other leads.
  8. Chat Re: Just for fun...what exactly are piggy kisses?

    Haha thanks! She's a very lovely pig! She's about 3.5 and was quite thin and scraggly when I got her, but she's put on just over 300 grams since coming home and her fur is a lot better.

  9. Mites: Re: Suspect Mites: where to find ivermectin in Canada

    I would try calling TSC again and hope you speak to someone else. I believe when I purchased it there, it was under the name bimectin. But if the worker seems confused, you can tell them it's a...

    Re: New To Guinea Pigs

    Mills123 some of the information you are sharing is not correct.

  11. Mites: Re: Suspect Mites: where to find ivermectin in Canada

    I haven't heard of any new regulations regarding it in Canada. It can come under different brand names (Bimectin, Ivomec) but it is still just ivermectin... definitely strange that TSC said they...

  13. Mites: Re: Suspect Mites: where to find ivermectin in Canada

    I don't believe that TSC Canada ships it. I would call your closest store and verify with them wether shipping is an option or to double check they have the product before making the drive.

    I use...
  14. Mites: Re: Suspect Mites: where to find ivermectin in Canada

    Do you happen to have a TSC anywhere near you? Most carry it in store and I have purchased it there for around $20.

    Amazon.ca used to have the correct product you're looking for, however I just...

    Hay: Re: All living things market medley

    Mills123 Although the advice above is good, none of it applies to us here in Canada. There isn't really a good place to get hay online here.

    However, in your other post you mentioned you lived by...
