    Aggression: Re: Im completely lost with my guinea pigs

    Your cage isn't large enough for one pig, never mind three, still less three boars. Three boars need a minimum of 10-12 square feet, and more is better. You've got less than 6 square feet.

    Hair Loss: Re: Mental Issues? Is it possible?

    I'd think that whatever is causing the hair loss might also be causing the behavior. I wouldn't worry too much about the behavior until the skin clears up. If it persists then, at least you'll know...

    Hair Loss: Re: Mental Issues? Is it possible?

    He's not doing that to himself. He can't reach that part of his back.

    I'd assume fungal infection, and start with treatment for that. See http://www.guinealynx.info/fungus.html for more info.

    Genitals: Re: Help determining gender of piggie

    The second picture is too fuzzy to tell anything about it. The first one looks male, but it would really be good if you could post clear, well-lit, close up pictures so we could see better.

  9. Sick: Re: Help! drinking LOTS of water, burying her food, and digging

    Is she really drinking, or is she just playing with the water bottle?

    And is she burying her food with her paws, or just dropping it out of her mouth.

    What kind of hay were you using? And what...

    Teeth: Re: Piggie teeth keep overgrowing

    I think your best bet would be to take your pig to an exotic vet in Milwaukee -- that seems to be the closest place to you that has exotic vets. He may have a jaw problem that's pulling his molars...

    DEFINITELY dilute it. And put it behind the ear rather than giving it orally.
  13. Bonding: Re: When to start bonding guinea pig who just lost their cage mate?

    The pig has no concept of time, and will only know that she's alone. I'd do introduction as soon as possible. Just make sure the cage is completely cleaned and neither it nor anything in it,...

    The thread answers your question about the syringe.

    If you get too much on, you wipe it off.

    Cage: Re: Outdoor cages/ hutches?

    We don't recommend it.

    For one thing, there's no way to protect them from stinging/biting insects. For another, the temperature varies too widely to make it safe. In NC, it's far too hot in the...

    Fighting: Re: same cage or different cage

    Are they boars? If so, a 3x2 cage is way too small. I wouldn't put them in anything less than a 2x5 if it were me.

    How old are they?

    And don't just "put them together." That's a recipe for...
