    I would start by treating for scurvy, if they were ditched in a box chances are good they are also vitamin C deficient. Treatment is simple and won't hurt even if they don't have scurvy....

    Re: Witchcraft and Guinea Pigs

    Definitely move it to a different room to the guinea pigs. Ideally have a door shut between the altar and the guinea pigs, and plenty of ventilation like an open window if possible.

    Re: My 2 years old guinea pig is probably pregnant!

    I'm sorry for the pup from Chocolate. However from the sounds of it I think there is more going on with it then just an injured leg.

    I'm glad Peanut had a safe delivery, I'm glad she had multiple...

  19. Mouth: Re: Need help Can anyone tell me what this could be on his lip?

    Without being able to look at it in person it could be a number of things, it could be dry skin, it could be an old scab, but i think it is most likely to be a bit of dried boar glue.
