    Bathing: Re: Bathing a FILTHY guinea pig?

    General: Re: How much napping is too much?

    Whether or not to trust the rescues evaluation that he doesn't do well with other guinea pigs depends completely on the kind of rescue it was. If they housed them in small cages and may not have done...

    Sexing: Re: Is My Boar Neutered?

    The problem with looking at photos is male guinea pigs have an open inguinal ring so they can draw the testicles up quite high towards the abdomen if they so desire. I had one boar who would pull...

    Dominance: Re: Three Boar Bullying

    Yes I would still go for the bully boar with a girl over the other two even if one other is neutered/you get them all neutered. The smaller boy and the younger one may not seem like good friends...

    Dominance: Re: Three Boar Bullying

    In your position where you have three boars, its clearly not working, the biggest one is a bully but is also neutered. I would pull the big bully that is neutered and get a female to house him with....

    - Is it normal for eyes to be open when they pass? It seemed as if they closed a little as we held him

    Adopting: Re: Guidance on type of new brother to adopt

    It probably isn't ringworm, it is much more likely to be a different kind of fungal infection. It should be possible to get a cream to put on the patches, you can start treatment on all of the...

    Adopting: Re: Guidance on type of new brother to adopt

    That patch under his eye does look suspiciously like a fungal infection to me.

    Now it should be quite simple to treat if that is a fungal infection but given how close to the eyeball it is you...

    Keeping Warm: Re: Keeping pigs warm during power outage

    Guinea pigs actually deal very well with the cold unless they are hairless. Guinea pigs have evolved to deal with the cold of the Andes mountains. There have been more than a few cases of guinea pigs...
  12. Possibly Pregnant: Re: Three recently adopted females possibly pregnant

    Yes Pocus's babies will likely nurse on the other sows when they have milk, if the other sows let them (if they don't want them to they will just chase them away). However they won't be able to do...
  13. Special Needs: Re: Issues with immune system and need special food

    Yes the essentials line is a better choice for fussy guinea pigs. It is great she already eats the vitamin C tablets from Oxbow.
  14. Special Needs: Re: Issues with immune system and need special food

    The best immune boosting foods are food that are well balanced in vitamins. Nothing suppresses the immune system more than being deficient in a nutrient. For this reason I would suggest instead going...
  15. Bonding: Re: Bonding - How Long for Introduction to New Pig

    Depending on what bedding you use, going a week with little or no poop scooping isn't necessarily a huge deal.

    Sure it leaves a mess for you to clean up at the end of the week, and isn't ideal,...
  16. Conditions: Re: Are my piggies' behaviours normal? I'm so worried.

    First things first the cage is much too small, it will be ok for now but they are going to get much bigger and it will be much too small very soon. They need to figure out who is dominant and they...

    General: Re: Guinea pig possibly pregnant

    It would be best to act as if she is pregnant until it is proven otherwise. Yes she could be pregnant, just not as far along as the other girl, depending on how long the male was in with them.
  18. Introductions: Re: Introducing a male guinea pig to my two females

    Is the male neutered?

    Two sows and one neutered boar has worked well for me in the past, he liked both girls and they both liked him. My neutered boar is currently with three sows now, but he gets...

    Sexing: Re: Please help me gender these 3 cubs?

    You can feel just above their genitals too, males have a bone in their penis and this can be felt as a firm line just under the skin. Females will not have this line.

  20. Cleaning: Re: Real-world feedback on fleece cage lining, please!

    As long as when you test it water passes through it to an absorbent material then it is fine to use. New fleece usually has a coating on it that prevents the water from passing through so it instead...
  21. Cleaning: Re: Real-world feedback on fleece cage lining, please!

    The way fleece works is it acts as an upper dry layer that allows liquids to pass to a lower bedding layer that is absorbent. The fleece itself doesn't get wet so they aren't in a constantly damp...

    Behavior: Re: Tickles

    Yawing is aggressive body language in guinea pigs it means "look at how big my teeth are, don't mess with me". They don't yawn when they are tired like us, they yawn as a warning before they bite.
