    Behavior: Re: Big fall!

    Sometimes it helps to put them back in the towel you are cuddling them in if they are wriggly. Just wrap it around them and hold them firmly bu gentle in it, make sure they can't slip out the back if...

    Behavior: Re: I think my guinea pig hates me!

    I just cut my long hairs hair to be short so it doesnt need grooming as she was from a bad place and came to me covered in knots and matts and so she hated having anything done to her hair. Now she's...
  5. Bonding: Re: Can guinea pigs not like other guinea pigs full stop?

    Thanks a lot, I'm thinking about perhaps making the cage a bit bigger to increase the chances that things go smoothly if they initially seem to get on at introductions.
  6. Bonding: Re: Can guinea pigs not like other guinea pigs full stop?

    Thanks a lot for your advice, I am assuming that perhaps she was in an overcrowded cage that wasn't kept clean and perhaps not had enough access to proper food. So maybe this influenced why she was...

    Hi,

    My guinea pigs partner passed away around a month ago so I got her a friend from Gumtree, she was a guinea pig that wasn't wanted anymore as they had a dog and the dog kept trying to attack...

    RIP Hector

    My poor Hector had to be put down this morning after a long struggle with her recovery after an cyst op. She was slowly putting on weight and regaining her appetite until a day ago when it started to...
  11. Travelling with Guinea pigs on the tube

    Am I allowed to travel with my guinea pig on the tube? I need to take her to the vet and the only option for this is tube or bus. The tube will be a lot quicker than the bus and isn't as jerky as the...
  12. Ovarian Cysts: Re: Just started squeaking when pooping 2 weeks after cyst spay

    Sorry for the triple post was very tired last night!

    Hectors teeth are fine, definitely a case of over feeding. She is wolfing down some celery as we speak.
  13. Ovarian Cysts: Re: Just started squeaking when pooping 2 weeks after cyst spay

    Yes a vet for small furrys and she provides the mentoring for the new vets who want to go into small furrys, she has been very good for the past 10 years. Just to update I cut back how much I was...
  14. Ovarian Cysts: Re: Just started squeaking when pooping 2 weeks after cyst spay

    Just to update, I cut back how much I was syringing her to 3/4mls every 2 hours down from 15 every hour and she has began eating bits and pieces again. I'll still get her teeth checked tomorrow but I...
  15. Ovarian Cysts: Re: Just started squeaking when pooping 2 weeks after cyst spay

    Yes she deals with small furrys and trains new vets who want to specialise in them. I have had her for about 10 years now and she has been great.
  16. Ovarian Cysts: Re: Just started squeaking when pooping 2 weeks after cyst spay

    Yeah she is I think she also trains new vets who want to specialise in small furrys. I have been going to her for about 10 years and she is great. I'll ask her about the x ray in the morning and see...
  17. Ovarian Cysts: Re: Just started squeaking when pooping 2 weeks after cyst spay

    Ok, I'll get her an x-ray tomorrow. They just checked with a metal torch thing?

    She was eating food 3 days ago, not a lot but some and then about a week after surgery so I suppose 6/7 days ago...
  18. Ovarian Cysts: Re: Just started squeaking when pooping 2 weeks after cyst spay

    I meant to say *0.5ml
  19. Ovarian Cysts: Re: Just started squeaking when pooping 2 weeks after cyst spay

    Thanks I will ask her to do that tomorrow.

    She gave me Metoclopramide at 5ml every 8 hours and it has got her gut moving but hasn't seemed to actually stimulate her desire to eat on her own, I...
