    General: Re: Vet Trip Tomorrow

    I have a large carrier because it's the cat carrier my family's used for years and I figured it would be better than buying a brand-new one.

    Thanks for the suggestions, everyone!

    General: Vet Trip Tomorrow

    I have a quick question. I'm taking my boys to the vet tomorrow for a check-up (I got a free one courtesy of the rescue where they came from). The only other time they've been in a carrier in the car...

    Fleece: Re: How often to wash fleece?

    I have two boars in a 2 x 5 cage. I was changing their fleece once a week, but the fleece was getting dirty too quickly, so now I change it/wash it every 3-4 days.
  4. Shelters: Re: Guinea pig shelter 2 weeks, or friend for 2 days and one week

    Option 1. Better to your pigs in an environment that they're semi-familiar with and with people who know how to take care of them.

    Treats: Oxbow Treats ok?

    Quick question. Based on a brief discussion on Facebook, I'm worried that Oxbow treats aren't safe for my boys because of the molasses in them. I give them each one digestive supplement every other...

    General: Re: Traveling Guinea Pig Mom

    Part of my concern is that my brother won't always be there to take care of them. Like, for example, on my next two trips, he'll be coming with me, so he can't serve as their caretaker during those...

    General: Traveling Guinea Pig Mom

    I need some advice from you fellow guinea pig owners.

    Hay: Hay Rack?

    I need some recommendations.

    I've been buying hay in bulk for my boys. Unfortunately, they seem to be going through the hay faster than I'd anticipated, primarily because of waste. I use a cat box...
  12. Adopt: 2 Non-Bonded Males in Northeast Georgia

    If anyone lives in the Atlanta area or is willing to drive north of it, these two boys need a home. I saw them at the shelter today. Despite coming from the same home, the two are unfortunately not...
  13. Behavior: Re: New Pig and Itís Absolutely Terrified.

    Shy piggies are not uncommon when they first come home. It's a new environment, and it takes time for them to adjust, some faster than others. I can testify that sitting next to the cage and talking...

    Feet: Swollen Foot

    Quick question.

    A few weeks ago, I pet-sat two female guinea pigs for a family that I know. Today, the owners told me that something is wrong with one of the girls. I don't have any pictures, but...
  16. C&C: Re: C & C kitchen needs daily cleaning??

    Usually when the hay starts to stink, the majority of the pellets are sawdust, so I pretty much have to dump it out anyway. Lately I've been putting a thin layer of pellets on the bottom and changing...
  17. C&C: Re: C & C kitchen needs daily cleaning??

    For my boys' kitchen, I use pine pellets from my local Tractor Supply store; they capture the odor really well, but I do change them out every few days because the hay does start to stink. When I was...

    Frustrated: Re: No Tunnel?

    Unfortunately, that's not possible. The tunnel is like a big spring, and there's no way to take the polyester covering off unless I cut it off (which would probably ruin the tunnel anyway).

    Chirping at night is always fun. The first night I had my boys, Mercury started chirping. I freaked out, thinking he was scared, but he was fine after I put a night light near their cage. He hasn't...

  24. Behavior: Re: Im confident my gp hate me. Should I lookfor new owner?
