  1. Impaction: Re: Elderly pig, anal sac issues/impaction - how much discomfort is too much?

    We don't have access to another pig who we have established is in good health yet, unfortunately. That may change shortly, if all goes well. He does particularly like strong-smelling dried basil (I...
  2. Impaction: Re: Elderly pig, anal sac issues/impaction - how much discomfort is too much?

    This sets my heart at ease. The impacted stools just seem so enormous. Thank you. I don’t see much cecal stool in the impactions (it looks the same shade as his normal stool to me), and he doesn’t...

    Fleece: Washing Fleece - Using a netted bag?

    Hey, fellow pig-friends! I apologize if I'm wrong, but I thought this might be a good thread to start in order for new guinea pig owners (like myself), and might even be helpful for some veteran...
  7. URI: Doing better while on antibiotics, gets sick again as soon as treatment stops (URI)

    Hello, fellow pig-friends.

    I'm having trouble with our little Chewy (1.5 year old boar). We got him back in early-early Spring, and he was healthy and happy at the time. About a month or two in,...

    Re: Introducing Kip and Chewy!

    We did three treatments with Revolution the first three months, on recommendation from the vet as an "it-can't-hurt" precaution - is that the same drug? If so, should we start treatment again?

    Re: Introducing Kip and Chewy!

    Thanks so much for the idea. We got them both cleared for mites, lice, and other pests when we first got them (poor Kip had ringworm, but with proper treatment it disappeared and hasn't come back...

    Hello, everyone! I am a first-time pig-friend (along with Boyfriend, who had a guinea pig back when he was a kiddo but didn't know how to take care of her quite as well as we do now).

    We love our...
