    I FINALLY got a clear pic of Gimbly's foot. His left one is looking great! His right foot is clearing up a lot better than I thought. He had sores on the black part which look to be gone,...
  3. Conditions: Re: Sudden paralysis of hind legs in a young female? (Cappucicno's med thread)

    Have you thought about what you will do in the long run or how this will affect her quality of life? Try to convince your dad or whoever that she needs some help. I think I also misread the post -...
  4. Conditions: Re: Sudden paralysis of hind legs in a young female? (Cappucicno's med thread)

    Well, it's not really something you could treat at home. Are you a minor? Would your dad feel differently if it was a dog dragging its back legs? Could be anything from spinal or neuro issues,...

    How Many: Re: 2 pig deaths in 2 months

    I would definitely get a new friend. I've had 2 pigs die within a year and I got the survivors new friends. I don't necessarily like the endless 'get a new pig' scenario, but between having my...

    Feet: Re: Gimbly's bumblefoot history

    Gimbly's bald spot is growing in. I'm still suspecting there was a mishap somewhere and it all got yanked out. It hasn't spread. His foot was looking really bad the other day...the scab was coming...

    Aggression: Re: Boys are being unusually aggressive

    This is true for Maple Leaf. When he rumblestruts, he stands there and slowly moves his whole rear end back and forth. No one else does that.

    They were still quite fiesty last night and seem...

    Aggression: Boys are being unusually aggressive

    So to start, one is 3 yrs old and the other is around 4 months. I know puberty can cause some issues. Gimbly is dealing with bumblefoot right now, so maybe that's part of this. I came home from work...
  10. Supplements: Re: Oxbow Natural Science (Supplements) - Your Thoughts?

    I only use the Vitamin C. I'm assuming it's been working since I've used it since 2020. Our vet also sells it but I haven't seen them selling any other varieties. I'm a skeptic by nature, including...

    Feet: Re: Gimbly's bumblefoot history

    The swelling has gone down, but I'm not sure how his feet are doing. I don't think the areas are spreading at least. As for the bald spot, no change there either and no spreading. Maple Leaf has no...
  12. General: Re: How to organize/store hay and wood shavings in bedroom

    Depends what kind of space you have. I keep my excessive amounts of hamster bedding in my closet. I keep the fleece in a box next to the cages, but ideally I would buy some shelves or drawers to put...

    Feet: Re: Gimbly's bumblefoot history

    I've been using these since 2020

    Originally they served as the main bedding for the pigs before I got fleece. Recently I noticed they seemed to not soak up urine as well and I could smell...

    Feet: Re: Gimbly's bumblefoot history

    So Gimbly definitely has bumblefoot and the black I'm seeing is scabs. Doctor also thinks his feet are swollen, but they have always been big and she could immediately see he had foot issues before. ...

    Feet: Re: Gimbly's bumblefoot history

    Gimbly is going to our vet tomorrow. I have been checking him over but I don't see it spreading, and Maple Leaf still looks fine. I showed the pics to my coworkers where I work, but no one is really...

    Feet: Re: Gimbly's bumblefoot history

    The areas on his feet looked bigger yesterday also. I don't see any other patches on him or Maple Leaf. This is like one single big patch on his left side along his ribs. I've read ringworm can...

    Feet: Re: Gimbly's bumblefoot history

    It's nearly impossible to get a good shot of his foot, so I included bad pics that kind of show the dark spot on his right foot. His nails seem long, but they are cut as short as I can get them. They...

    Feet: Gimbly's bumblefoot history

    Gimbly was adopted from Texas Rustlers in Dec 2020. They treated him for bumblefoot, but idk how bad the infection was. It did deform his foot to where it always looks swollen. It reminds me of a...
  24. Say What?: Newest addition has retrained everyone on how to beg for food

    My sweet Maple Leaf came from the animal shelter pre-trained on how to cry for food and what sounds to cry at. He was a month or two old back then. It's been 2 months and now everyone is constantly...
  25. Conditions: Re: Lil guinea has peeling feet & crusty eyes. :'(
