  3. Mites: Re: abyssinian guinea pig keeps getting mites?

    FINALLY FOUND IT! It took an almost 2 hour drive to find a place with it in stock that would actually sell it to me, but I got it.

  4. Mites: Re: abyssinian guinea pig keeps getting mites?

  5. Mites: Re: abyssinian guinea pig keeps getting mites?

    She was 3 weeks on, 4 weeks off, another 3 on, 5 off, 3 on, 2 off.

    Will it be safe if the...

  11. Should pet stores/shelters ban "serial abandoners"?

    This is somewhat a rant and question so bear with me.

    Now I consider myself fairly understanding when it comes to the need to surrender a pet. Unexpected stuff absolutely happens, and sometimes...
  12. Behavior: Re: Sudden chewing and bad behavior when I'm not home

  13. Behavior: Re: Sudden chewing and bad behavior when I'm not home

    We're hopefully (knock on wood) moving into our own house in April, so well extend their cage back out then. I'm guessing they've been wanting to act this way since we had to change their cage (mid...
  14. Behavior: Re: Sudden chewing and bad behavior when I'm not home

    I haven't updated my profile in an obscenely long time, its 2x5 with a 3x2 top level. We had to make it smaller (it ws 4x5) because our landlord is horrible and basically said split the cage in half...

  16. Behavior: Re: Sudden chewing and bad behavior when I'm not home

    I took them to the vet last month (about two weeks after this started) because I thought it was mites too, but she said thry were all in perfect health. She gave me ivermectin anyway just incase...

    Behavior: Re: Late night snack

    Pretty much every pet I've had in the past 4 years has started to do this because my own schedule is an embarrassment. I got into the habit of always giving everyone a treat when I got home from...
