    Ramps: Re: Providing traction for my ramp

    Not to be the opposition here but, my piggies made an absolute mess of mine. They would back up to the edge of the ramp and poop or pee down it. I saw it on several occasions. It was so bad once I...

    We all do it. Sometimes it makes their nail look funny for a little while but that is okay.

    I also wont clip unless I can pause and see where I am putting the blades.

    C&C Alternatives: Re: Cage options?

    I use a zip tie for the end of each grid. So for example a grid on the side of my cage would have at least 4 zip ties (one in each corner). Mine has a bottom because it is on a stand so each grid...

    Diet: Re: Feeding schedule?

    I wake up and refill their hay bin. I pour them their pellets and they sit and eat them together at the bowl for breakfast. It is so cute, it is like they are eating at a kitchen table together...

    Bedding: Re: Kitchen area: Best bedding

  7. C&C: Re: Help me convince the parents about a C&C cage

    Why don't they want you to have a C&C cage? I mean that may help us help you if you knew why.

    Cage: Re: First cage ideas.

    From personal experience, I think only raising it one level might make it more of a pain to clean. It is all based on preference though.

    I've made lots of different cages. They all have pros and...

    Bedding: Re: Kitchen area: Best bedding

    I use carefresh in my kitchen.

    Just a heads up on that idea, because I have done it before. Be prepared for bedding to get all over the fleece still. They will drag it through the doorway from the...

    It isn't raised any. It looks kind of like a bruise and not really a growth. I don't know what they will do.

    If they don't think it is anything serious I'm not even going to mess with it. It is...

    Behavior: Re: Begging

    What do they do with a piggy to remove something like that?

    With all this said, who knows what they will do. I am just...

    How much do you think surgery might cost to remove something like a mole, about the size of a pencil eraser, maybe a little bigger, on a guinea pig?

    One of my boyfriends piggies has this issue. She has been treated for mites, and it did not go away. It IS, however, from my experiences, abnormal. You can see it on her when you take her out almost...

    Okay so I am trying to make a guinea pig hidey.

    My plan was to make the equivalent to taking two cozy beds and placing one on top of the other. So it would be circular, have a roof, a bottom and a...

    Vet Costs: Re: What is an average cost for a vet visit??

    I can't answer for Paula but it seems as though in my area there is a direct correlation of price to location. The more in-city the vet is, the more pricey they are in many cases. However, a lot of...

    Vet Costs: Re: What is an average cost for a vet visit??

    In my area, for a vet that takes guinea pigs (which doesn't equal cavy savvy in this case) It is about $30-$50 for the visit. It is $65 if you go to a walk in.

    I drive an hour for a better vet and...

    One thought on the whole "this little piggy and me" name is that it implies the singular. I think it is an adorable name and I am not sure if it really matters in the end. However, generally you want...
