    Supplements: Re: Vitamin C

    Better to under dose than over dose. Personally, I wouldn't be supplementing the multivitamin drops, but that's your decision. If you are feeding high-quality pellets and he has his daily ration of...

    Re: Piggy Obsessed

    I can certainly attest to this! :crazy: It's been a long time since I've had very young cavies and I had forgotten just how much work and patience they require. We have been pig-less since New Year's...

    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    So, today apparently the marker of success is drinking from a water bottle. Small milestone at our house. I have two new little boars (haven't had time to post nor take pics as yet) and they had no...

    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    So sorry that Scooter's digestive problems continue! You have really been through it with several of your cavies, and it just isn't fair that it is happening again. Scooter couldn't ask for a more...

    Welcome to the Forum! Cute piggies.

    As you have time, browse through previous posts as there is SO much information stretching back for about 15 years. Almost any question you have about cavy care...
  8. Water: Re: How to get guinea pig to drink from bottle?

    No luck here either. I tried squirting some into the mouth and just about choked the boy. It's the same old story.....they're terrified of being picked up, but once cuddled in my arms, they are...
  9. Aggression: Re: Moved 2 pigs into new home and one started going haywire

    To the OP, note the current thread "Possibly Pregnant......" where I just posted pics of male & female genitals. Try to duplicate the lighting and angle of those pics.
  10. Possibly Pregnant: Re: Is my guinea pig pregnant? I was told she was spayed!

    The pics you have posted are taken at a less than optimal angle and are simply not clear enough. Take a look at the pics below and try to duplicate them with Beatrix.

  11. Water: Re: How to get guinea pig to drink from bottle?

    I'm in the same situation as you. A breeder friend says to put a bit of honey or maple syrup on the end of the nozzle. So far, my boys still haven't paid much attention to it, and when I removed the...

    Stand: Re: Ikea Kallax Stand?

    My first thought is "why do you not have a bottom on your cage?" If you plan to put it anywhere other than the floor, it will be unsteady and always at risk for falling. Then build a custom grid...
