    Penny passed away last night. I guess it really was her time to go, but at least she's with her cage mate now. Her cage mate had passed away about 4 months ago and they were together since they were...

    Urine: Re: Dark Red Dried Urine

    It's red when fresh and dark red when dried. The only veggies I feed them are romaine lettuce and green bell peppers. I do notice that whenever I do a complete cage change, there's dried red urine...

    Urine: Dark Red Dried Urine

    My female guinea pig is about 3 years and a half. I discovered red to dark red urine in her cage on the fleece one morning and took her into the vet. They thought she may have had a urinary infection...
  7. Introductions: Will adding a neutered board help bond two pairs of adult female guinea pigs?

    Hi there,

    I have three pairs of female guinea pigs and would like to bond two of those pairs. Of the four guinea pigs I want to bond, one is known to be dominant. As they're all adult guinea pigs...
  8. Dominance: Re: Will two dominant guinea pigs do well together.

    There's a chance they will get along, but I wouldn't bet on it just because it did not work well with my piggies. I have two dominant guinea pigs and the first time I put them together, it escalated...

    Fleece: Re: Anti-Pill or Blizzard

    I have bought both before and the blizzard didn't absorb the guinea pig urine the first time I used it, but after it went through the wash, it wicked just fine. So now, either one works for me....

    Fleece: Re: Piggy Bed Spreads vs Fleece Flippers

    I agree with sherri86. I have bought a Piggy Bedspread and love it! It makes cleaning, whether spot cleaning or cleaning the entire cage, so much easier since it's simple to take off and put back in...

    Bonding: Re: Bringing new baby home

    If you're just getting her, it's best to have the cage all set up beforehand because she will need time to adjust to her new surroundings. This could be a few days to a week.

    I'm not sure about...

    Eyes: Milky white discharge from eyes

    I noticed a few days ago that one of my guinea pigs would have a milky white liquidity discharge come from her eyes. It doesn't seem to bother her and I will usually wipe it away with a tissue or...

    Behavior: Re: Getting my guinea pig to trust me

    My very skittish guinea pig has just started to come near my hands whenever I have it in the cage. She still does not like to be picked up, but if she's sniffing my hands, that's a good sign. It...
  18. General: Re: Overwhelmed prioritizing care for new quarantined piggies

    When you first get new guinea pigs, you should leave them alone for a few days (I leave them alone for a week but still clean their cage daily) to get adjusted to the new environment. I don't do any...

    No, I don't think it's selfish to get rid of them for your reasons. If you're rehoming them, please ask the people who want to adopt them a lot of questions such as, do they have experience with...
