    Not Eating: Re: Pig seems to have trouble eating

    I can sometimes take up to a week for a pig to eat again after a dental procedure. Sly was usually doing well a day or two afterward, but there were times that it took a week or more before he was...
  2. Re: We discovered that we lost one of our guinea pigs today

    I'm so sorry you lost Tilly.

    34 degrees is MUCH too hot for guinea pigs. I start to get scared if the temperature inside my house rises above 24 degrees C.

    They really should be indoors and...

    How Many: Re: Should I get more pigs?

    One more boar wouldn't work, and neither would a single female.

    That much space, the best thing you could do is just add it to what your current boys already have. My boars have even more space...

    Behavior: Re: Separated pigs - bar chewing??

    If you've moved and have more space for the pigs (ideally a 2x5 grid C and C minimum) I would go ahead and attempt a reintroduction. Of course, do it in a completely different and neutral area that...

    Instructions on the bag say it should be prepared fresh at every feeding.

    Not Eating: Re: Pig seems to have trouble eating

    I'm glad you finally got a diagnosis!

    While I agree the prognosis isn't good, this condition is manageable. I'll direct you back to the initial thread I posted at the top for my boy sly, as he...

    Not Eating: Re: Pig seems to have trouble eating

    Fingers are crossed that you get some answers, and hopefully, a treatment solution. Would be great to see Pigsilver recover.

    Keep us updated on his diagnosis if you get one, and progress!

    Nutrition: Re: Need new Vit C source

    You can always use Oasis drops. Make sure you get the Vitamin C one, and not the multivitamin. Packaging is almost identical

    That's exactly why I created that thread. I was obviously looking for help and advice, but I also wanted to document what was happening for a few reasons. Obviously the ability to help others such as...

    Not Eating: Re: Pig seems to have trouble eating

    I'll make a suggestion here. Normally, too many pellets are not a good thing, and they still aren't. That said, one thing I found that helped my pigs with dental issues eat on their own is to take a...

    Not Eating: Re: Pig seems to have trouble eating

    It's beginning to sound like your little guy is dealing with the same thing my boy Punkin did.

    It's not a happy read, but I'm going to link pumpkins medical thread here for you to look through....

    Conditions: Re: Bianka Bella medical concerns thread

    I can't recall seeing something like that before. As long as it isn't bleeding, or showing signs of being infected, I think I would just monitor it and leave it alone.

    Cage: Re: Cage with 2ft tall solid walls

    First, thank you so much for giving those girls a new loving home.


    You are correct. Pigs are very susceptible to upper respiratory infections and therefore really need good airflow through the...

    General: Re: Tissue box for hay feeder

    As long as the plastic film is completely gone and there are no sticks or glue anywhere, it should be fine.

    I'd be more concerned about them trying to climb into it and get stuck, however. I...
  17. Introductions: Re: Quick Introductions (After Death of Cagemate)

    The behavior you're describing doesn't really sound like a stressed pig, per se. Tell me, when they yawn are their eyes closed or open?

    If they close their eyes when they yawn, they're just...

    Not Eating: Re: Pig seems to have trouble eating

    I feel your pain. I went through this for many, many months.

    It's definitely his drool. I used to try and gently dry it as much as I could, because Punkin's skin would get SO wet and irritated...
  20. Introductions: Re: Quick Introductions (After Death of Cagemate)

    Plexiglas would be optimal. Failing that, perhaps some coroplast or even a piece of cardboard cut from a large box. Just make sure there are no tape or labels or anything else stuck to the box that...

    Sick: Re: Chico and Amigo's med thread

    Chewing can be a sign of pain. Is he acting out of sorts other than the chewing?

    You really don't want him ingesting any of the coroplast.
  22. Introductions: Re: Quick Introductions (After Death of Cagemate)

    Before I say anything else, find a way to deter Owl from biting the divider. You definitely don't want him to break his teeth.

    Keeping Cool: Re: Air Conditioner/Cage Set Up

    The ideal temperature range for guinea pigs is 60-75 degrees. Anything higher and they are in danger of heat stroke.

    I'd leave them in there, and if the room they live in is higher than that I'd...
  25. Introductions: Re: Quick Introductions (After Death of Cagemate)

    They're likely still working things out, however, a normally dominant pig who is suddenly the one being dominated can be an indication that he is ill.

    It's still early, but in light of...
