  1. Re: Grieving time is over and looking to get two guinea pigs

    Is there a guinea pig rescue or shelter around you? Getting pigs there not only gives a loving home to pigs who need one, but frees up their shelter spaces for someone else to be rescued. And if...
  2. Re: Help need help training my guinea pig to potty trained

    Fredmama83, please don't make multiple posts on the same topic. People who read the forums read all the new posts, and they'll see your question even if you only post it once.

    Short answer, you...

    His cagemate(s) is(are) barber(s).

    Then I think it doesn't matter which pair you put out there, or even if you rotate them.

    General: Re: Location location location

    Personally, I wouldn't let them run around loose in a home with elderly people. There's potential danger on both sides -- the pigs could get stepped on, or they could trip the people. I'd make it a...

    Urine: Re: Red Urine

    We're roughly a month out from when you first reported this, which would be two heat cycles. My suspicion is that this is heat related. It's not enough blood to be dangerous, and if it goes away in...

    Re: Sick guinea pig help needed asap

    I would not separate, because they've all already been exposed, and she may be stressed out by being alone. But I would take her to the vet.
  10. Size: Re: I have a cage size delema -- what would you do in this situation?

    I wouldn't get guinea pigs if I couldn't provide a large flat area for them to run around in.

    Dominance: Re: Dominance VS Fighting

    First, are you sure they're both male? You've turned them over and compared their private parts?

    Second, do all the hideys have at least two doors? If not, take them out, or cut another hole in...

    Cleaning: Re: How do I make my cage smell better

    The question I have is how old they are? If they're just coming into puberty, they may be scent marking the cage. That's a very different smell than peed-on hay and poop, which is generally the...

    Why are you beating yourself up? If the temperature in the car was comfortable for you, it would have been fine for him. And riding two days in a car wouldn't have done anything to him that he...

    Re: New owner, tons of questions!

    Take clear, close-up, well-lit pictures and post them here. Someone can help sex them.

    And turn them both over at the same time so you can compare them. You need to sex them both, not just one. ...

    Ditto to Smileandnod. If one set of private parts doesn't look like the other two, separate them immediately.

    UTI: Re: Blood dot in Urine and Whimpering

    Possibly Pregnant: Re: can y'all tell if Minnie is pregnant?

    @Candalala is right -- it takes literally seconds for guinea pigs to breed. You could sneeze and miss it.

    Besides, guinea pigs shouldn't be placed together and then separated. They don't play...

    Not Eating: Re: Punkin's medical thread

    Actually, it may be easier for him to eat matchstick-sized slivers than tiny pieces. If you post them into his mouth back to his molars, he may be able to manage them.
  24. Sick: Re: Long Term Bloating and Diarrhea - advice?

    Baytril and flagyl are two different drugs. Flagyl is generally more effective against GI organisms, and much less harsh on the pig.
  25. Sick: Re: Long Term Bloating and Diarrhea - advice?

    Have you tried a probiotic? Bene-Bac seems to work well. Or you can use poop soup from a healthy guinea pig.

    Also, I'd want to try a course of flagyl and see if that would help. It's very...
