    Sick: Re: Bella lethargic

    I know exactly how that feels. Both Scooter and Punkin completely ignored the water bottle when they were ill. Pretty positive that was the reason (along with me not syringing enough water) that...

    A little thinner, maybe. You don't want it too runny but obviously not too thick that its too difficult to syringe. If you cut the curved tip off the 12ml, the hole should be about the same size...

    It doesn't make it easier to feed because the pig has dental issues, Artista. It makes it easier because shes a guinea pig who hates being fed! You don't actually leave the two syringes connected. ...

    How is she doing, @Artista?

    Yeah, the trick with the 12ml syringe into a 1ml syringe was a lifesaver for me. I don't even remember how I ran across that, but Scooter was such a bad pig to...

    Have you tried wrapping her up like a burrito? It worked very well for Sly. It worked well for Punkin too until he became agitated. Scooter hated it so much that it got to the point where if I...

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    Bottom left is definitely diarrhea. It's not quite liquid, but I would monitor him closely if you find more of it.

    The green colour also possibly indicates too much veggies.

    Not Eating: Re: Pig seems to have trouble eating

    Thank you for the update. One oz fluctuation on a weekly basis is considered normal, so Pigsilver's weight seems to me to be fairly stable which is great.

    Very happy to hear that Spiderpig is...
  13. Bonding: Re: Not sure if this is a failed bonding or if I should keep trying?

    As long as there is no bloodshed, leave them together. They have to sort out who is the boss and that will take some time. It sounds to me like a typical introduction. Once they've sorted...

    Small poops indicates she isn't eating enough. Simon lately has been blasting through 12 oz OVERNIGHT. He's backed off some and seems back to normal now.

    Yeah, 75 should be no problem at all.

    If she isn't drinking, you can syringe her water or feed her really wet stuff, like cucumber. After what happened to Scooter, pigs that don't drink...

    Vet Costs: Re: Curious of prices in your area

    I am so sorry you are in this situation.

    Vet costs vary widely, even in the same city. I also am in Ontario, Canada. Those surgery costs do seem to be fairly in line with everything I've...

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    Sounds to me also, that the most prudent course of action would be to remove the eye that's causing a problem. From what I've seen recovery from that surgery is usually a couple of weeks.

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    Yes, it does look pretty nasty. Other than his eye he sounds pretty darn healthy to me. I know you will do what's right for him. Fingers are crossed on my end for everything to work out.
