    Fleece: Re: Looking for no sew fleece liner option

    There are different types of fleece, and some have a texture that doesn't wick as well. I use the plush anti-pill fleece from Joann Fabric. It's a little thicker and softer than the blizzard fleece,...

    Pigsitting: Re: Flying saucer?

    Chances are they won't use the flying saucer, and hopefully won't chew or hurt themselves. However, I would suggest to the neighbor to take the 2 boys and return saucer. Then make a trip to a local...

    Nutrition: Re: Need new Vit C source

    Stop feeding the peppers for a while, then try again in a few weeks. Sometimes they get tired of something and when it shows up again they are interested.

    Mine decided she didn’t like peppers...

    Pellets: Re: Alfafa pellets for adult pigs

    I hear you on the cost of pellets. I've had a similar situation with choosing Oxbow Garden Select only to have my guinea pig lose interest in those, and I was stuck with an almost-full bag.

    I...

    General: Re: Tissue box for hay feeder

    Generally, the USDA recommends one-time use of egg cartons due to salmonella and other bacteria that can be present in the cartons. Our garbage company will not recycle them, so we end up using them...

    General: Re: Tissue box for hay feeder

    I wouldn't use a tissue box. There will be tissue fibers left behind that aren't meant to be eaten, there may be a fragrance added, and the glue would concern me. I have used cereal boxes in the...

    Nutrition: Re: How good/bad are corn husks?

    I freeze corn husks for my guinea pig. I had 4 of the gallon freezer bags over winter and I have jut a small bunch left. At one point when my guinea pig was ill, corn husks were the only food she...

    Sick: Re: Penicillin G Injections

    Whichever clinic you decide, I wish the best for Smokey's recovery.

    Since both estimates are just that - estimates, I would choose the clinic with the vet who seemed the most capable and caring....
  13. Introductions: Re: How long should they stay in the neutral cage?

    You're not a failure, I would have done the same. That's why I haven't gotten a second pig for mine. She was a single pig who was in foster care after having 2 babies at a young age. She's been very...
  14. Introductions: Re: How long should they stay in the neutral cage?

    Make sure you have several hideys with 2 entrances so one pig can't corner the other one. And it may help to have some fleece fringe or other hanging dividers to disrupt their line of vision so they...

    Re: New here but not to guinea pigs

    I'm sorry you lost Woodlen. I have a single pig and she is very active, healthy, and social, so Carrie may do okay. I have a homemade 2x3 grid cage on a wood base. The base is made using a half-sheet...
  16. Sick: Re: Small poops & possible throw up?? (I know they can't but still!)

    I agree, they usually have some food in their mouths and will even get some in the water bottle nozzle if they drink right after eating.

    The medicine is probably for pain, unless a tooth was...

    Frustrated: Re: Ants!!!

    The rain brings them out of the ground to the surface and it sounds like they found a place to go in your closet. We had a similar experience a few years ago with heavy summer rains. We're in a...
  18. Loss: Re: Guinea Pig got Bladder stones.. did I do something wrong?

    I'm so sorry you lost Mildred. Stones are a problem and there really isn't a sure-fire way to prevent them. You were feeding her a good brand of hay and pellets, but some pigs are just more prone to...

    General: Re: Cute and funny things your GP do(es)

    I love the tunnel story! They can be so stubborn and indignant.

    Sometimes when I spot-clean the cage, Lacey gets huffy with the whisk broom. She jumps at it and kind of grunts. She also gets mad...

    General: Re: Can I Lose my Piggies Trust?

    They usually don’t like their nails trimmed. But most of the time they can be bribed with a favorite food afterward and they get over it. Mine is moody and some days she has a fit about nail trims or...
  23. Hay: Re: Are my guinea pigs acting spoiled or is this hay actually bad?

    Mine does the same thing. As Bpatters said, hay varies based on the cutting. Right now the Oxbow Timothy I have is thick strands and fuzzy tops. So I mixed in some Kaytee Timothy, which is shorter...

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    The same thing happens with Lacey if she gets extra veggies, or if she's playing with the water bottle and drinking more than usual.
  25. How Much?: Re: If my piggies finish their pellets and veggies, what do I do?

    I give mine small amounts of veggies throughout the day, and scatter them in the cage so she has to forage. I also keep corn husks on hand, which I freeze in the fall. Like hay, they are good...
