  1. Injury: Re: 2-year-old male piggy has red lump growing from bottom eyelid.

    Poor Nibbles, that does look painful.

    Glad the vet gave you a diagnosis and a treatment plan. Waiting to hear some good news!

    Re: New To Guinea Pigs

    Thank you so much for the updates, and looking forward to more good news. They're so adorable.
  4. Not Eating: Re: Bella Rose hasn't eaten much at all

    Artista

    I know Amazon carries Critical Care, but other than that I believe (at least it is where I live) only available at a veterinarian. There are absolutely no stores in Canada that carry it.
  5. Not Eating: Re: Bella Rose hasn't eaten much at all

    Too much lettuce would definitely give her soft mushy poops like that. May have upset her tummy as well.

    Also a good idea to keep the CC on hand just in case. Pellet slurry will do in a pinch...
  6. Not Eating: Re: Bella Rose hasn't eaten much at all

    Pulling hard for little Bella Rose.

    Sometimes my boys have had off days where food didn't seem to be much of a priority. Just yesterday, I was worried about Scooter because he seemed to be having...
  7. Re: Light a candle for little miss Phoebe

    Oh, no. I am so, so very sorry.

    I was worried by your earlier post. Sometimes a piggie will lose their sibling(s), and they just don't seem to be able to cope without them. Poor Phoebe was so...

    Re: New To Guinea Pigs

    You will probably find that 3 males in a cage will not go well. 3 seems to be a kryptonite number, and I just wanted you to be aware of it BEFORE it becomes an issue.

    Spaying and neutering IS an...

    Re: New To Guinea Pigs

    Bless you for taking them all in from what sounds like an absolutely abhorrent situation.

    If they aren't all girls, you likely have every female in the bunch pregnant already. You'll need to be...
  10. Sick: Re: Diarrhea caused by antibiotics, how to treat?

    Thank you so much for the good news!
  11. General: Re: What are you guys getting your pigs for xmas?

    I would LOVE to get Scooter a buddy for Christmas, but

    Alas, a buddy would JUST get in under the quarantine period and I need to make sure Scooter is a-ok before I do it.

    Conditions: Re: Pig Not Pooping?

    A pig that isn't pooping could have a few things that may be wrong. It's possible that he may have a blockage. Not pooping OR peeing would indicate to me that he isn't taking enough of either in,...
  14. Behavior: Re: Could I ask for advice? Lone guinea pig making sad sounds

    I am in a somewhat similar situation myself at the moment.

    How old is your remaining piggie? You did say that you rescued them 5 years ago, do you have any idea her approximate age before...

    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    Ok, I know we have a few members in your general area. I'm in Canada, so hopefully someone will see this.

    What I would suggest you do, however, is create your own Medical thread for your furball....

    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    It certainly sounds as though he needs to see the vet again. There may be more going on than the vet had seen, upon his initial visit.

    Whereabouts do you live? Not your exact address, just the...

    Re: Rest in peace Cider.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sure Cider knew all the love he could handle, and then some.

    Please allow me to add, though I'm sure it's little comfort. Losing a piggie is so heartbreaking, but...
  19. Diet: Re: Veggies to feed with mazuri pellets?

    I'm lucky in that I have never not been able to get red or green leaf lettuce. They have all gotten it as an occasional treat but really no more than that.
  20. Diet: Re: Veggies to feed with mazuri pellets?

    Endive and escarole are chicories of the same species. I have fed my boys all three, endive, belgian endive and escarole.
  21. Diet: Re: Veggies to feed with mazuri pellets?

    I've always given my boys a slice of pepper (colour varies depending on their mood that week lol.) and I've always sliced it lengthwise, roughly 1 1/2 to two inches in thickness. They tend to gobble...

    Fleece: Re: fleece dryness

    It sounds like you've done everything properly and the fleece is doing it's job. The second piece could perhaps use another wash or two, but otherwise everything sounds just fine.
