    Pregnant: Re: Pelvic Bones, Pregnant GP, Labor?

    That's awesome. :)

    I hope Almond is doing well too!
  2. Pregnant: Re: Pregnant guinea pig ultrasound video (a little bit cute)

    Thanks everyone. :) They are a super-cute little family and Esmé is being an amazing first (and last!) time mother.
  3. Pregnant: Re: Pregnant guinea pig ultrasound video (a little bit cute)

    Born this morning. :)

    Mum (Esmé) weighs 435 grams now (!!! :( ) and the bubs were 104 grams and 114 grams. I'm shocked she's doing so well, considering.
  4. C&C: Re: Minimum C&C cage size for 4 female guinea pigs for 9 days.

    That sounds like such a neat space for them! Whatever you decide that sounds like an amazing full-time set-up that they will be happy to go back to.

    I've kept six (!) pigs in a 4x2 space for a...
  5. C&C: Re: Minimum C&C cage size for 4 female guinea pigs for 9 days.

    When I've moved house before (rental property shenanigans) I had to temporarily house pigs in a similar situation. I think as long as the pigs are well-bonded and compatible, temperament-wise, and...
  6. Conditions: Re: Moving Cross Country, Pig Status Declining

    I would keep offering them wet veggies (cucumber, lettuce, etc.) because piggies rarely drink I find when travelling... usually they can stay hydrated through high water content veg though, you can...
  7. Conditions: Re: Moving Cross Country, Pig Status Declining

    Hi, first of all this sounds like a really horrible, stressful situation and I'm sorry you, your girlfriend and the piggies have to work out a way to deal with it all.

    Is there anyway your...
  8. Pregnant: Pregnant guinea pig ultrasound video (a little bit cute)

    https://www.facebook.com/NewBeGUINEAings/videos/890740424651400/

    I thought I would share this here, because a) it's adorable in a different way to most piggy videos b) it's fascinating and c) it's...

    Conditions: Re: Uterine Tumor: What Would You Do?

    Will the ovarian surgery just be a flank spay? Usually that's not quite as invasive.

    It really does seem neverending sometimes. :( I hope Opal is feeling better at least. Poor little pig. It's a...

    Size: Re: Is The Size too Small/

    I'm going to place a fairly confident bet that it's actually a 100cm x 50cm cage, ha.

    Conditions: Re: Uterine Tumor: What Would You Do?

    Hi, sorry for the slow reply, how is she going today?

    It really can vary and after such a big surgery it can take a couple of weeks. If you post a video (if you can) it might be easier to get a...

    Conditions: Re: Uterine Tumor: What Would You Do?

    Olive's entire uterus was removed. I'll message the vet who did the surgery and ask about this (even though she's moved to a different clinic interstate we're friends on Facebook, which is handy),...

    Conditions: Re: Uterine Tumor: What Would You Do?

    2mg/mL is higher in concentration than the meloxicam I use usually (1.5mg/mL) so that explains the difference! I'd check with your vet if they think splitting the dose might help? Sometimes pigs will...

    Conditions: Re: Uterine Tumor: What Would You Do?

    It's a big surgery (and hey, Olive's ovaries were left in as well just to keep the surgery time to under an hour) it's common for a piggy to be a little "out of it" after a long GA procedure. And...

    Conditions: Re: Blood and Lethargy

    So I feel like I'm in a good position to comment on this. I have a piggy with a uterine tumour currently, and I've had a piggy with a uterine tumour previously.

    My current piggy is Lottie, a at...

    URI: Re: HELP! Baby GP with pneumonia

    If this helps give you hope, I had a baby pig less than a week old weighing 100 grams who had been rejected by his mother, aspirate when I was hand feeding and everywhere online said it was a death...

    I think Lil at the Australian Cavy Sanctuary in Melbourne has over 400 pigs at the moment. Nobody needs baby pigs clearly, not least of all anyone in Australia at the moment. ;) But it would be a...

    Behavior: Re: New action from 1 of my guinea pigs

    Girls will squirt urine backwards if they're annoyed at another pig. Males can't due to anatomical differences.

    Is Bucky neutered? Male babies are best separated from their mother and sisters at...
  19. Tumor: Re: Anyone has experience with exploratory surgery?

    Gastrointestinal cancer sounds pretty nasty. Where is the tumour exactly?

    Anything that affects the digestive system in guinea pigs can be difficult to operate and recover from (and pressure from...

    Pregnant: Re: Pelvic Bones, Pregnant GP, Labor?

    Thanks. I'm not really a hero though, ha, I just know a few tricks from dabbling in piggy rescue for quite a few years now. I'm glad I could help out... from over the other side of the world (!).

    Behavior: Re: Guinea Pig does nothing but stares

    I didn't watch the whole video, I figured 30 seconds was enough. But if you interact with him (e.g. tickle under his chin or offer him a snack) does he respond? He's a little cutie. He does look a...
