    Injury: Re: Emergency: Bleeding nose

    I'd say do NOT wipe it with a q-tip. There may be hay stuck up in the nostril, and the q-tip will only push it further in.

    My bet is on a hay poke. You need to see a vet who can look with a light...

    Behavior: Re: My girls lately..... I have a question.

    Nearly all female animals come into heat, and guinea pigs are no different. They usually don't bleed, but occasionally we run across a sow that spots a little. Heat lasts 1 or 2 days, and happens...

    Skin Problems: Re: 2 guinea pigs with skin problems

    I think the lighter colored one definitely needs to see a vet. That's an open wound that could easily get infected, and is probably the result of a bite. And if you're gonna take one in, you might...

    Looks like the beginning of cheilitis to me, but the picture is pretty fuzzy.

    Skin Problems: Re: 2 guinea pigs with skin problems

    The one on the right looks like it might be a gunky grease gland. I'd get some Nizoral shampoo, soap it up good and let it sit for a few minutes, and then rinse well. Then after it's dry post...

    Where to Order?: Re: Probiotic recommendation

    Most pet stores also sell it, but usually in powder form. I always used the big syringe from Amazon.
  8. General: Re: I dropped my guinea pig and want to make sure he's okay.

    If he's moving, eating and pooping normally, I'd just watch him carefully and get him to a vet only if he shows any signs of distress.

    Pay special attention to the cut on the side of his mouth. ...
  9. Infection: Re: Help!Green/brown spots both sides of mouth Iíve never seen this before please tel

    Do post a picture. In the meantime, take a look at http://www.guinealynx.info/cheilitis.html and see if it looks like that.
  10. General: Re: Can I leave my guinea pig alone for 6 days?

    You absolutely can't leave it alone for six days.

    You need to either arrange for someone to keep it at their home, or for someone to come into your home. It needs food, hay and water daily. And...

    Is his weight steady, or is he losing?

    Has he been treated for mites?

    Urine: Re: Cloudy Urine?

    All young pigs have cloudy urine, and yes, it's caused by calcium. However, they need calcium for teeth and bones, so we don't usually worry about their calcium intake until they're about six months...

    Re: KMS Hayloft major issues

    TheGuineaPigGal, I'm well aware of how many people are from other countries. But I think you missed my point. KMS does NOT ship to the UK. So I don't see why it would be of interest to a UK forum.

    Urine: Re: Blood in pee

    How much blood?

    I wouldn't separate them, nor would I go to an emergency vet unless she's peeing pure blood. Calling on Monday should be fine.

    Re: Meet my Guinea Pigs!

    Welcome! Cute pigs.

    But you should know that your cage is not nearly large enough for two adult males. They need at least 10.5 to 11 square feet, and more is better.
  17. Cage: Re: Revamped cage/room for my herd of 4 boars

    Definitely two doors in every hidey, especially with boars. A one-door hidey is just an invitation for one boar to trap another, and get his face slashed for his efforts.

    Blankets: Re: Crocheted/knit guinea pig beds

    I'd also watch them like a hawk to make sure they don't eat it. Yarn could cause a huge intestinal blockage. I personally wouldn't risk it.

    Unless I'm totally misremembering this, the main reason those stores stopped selling puppies and kittens is because state legislatures banned the practice.

    If you can post on your old one, please do so. But it's probably closed to new posts.

    If so, put a link to that thread in the first post of your new thread so people can trace back if they want...

    I'm very sorry you lost her.
  23. Stones: Re: Guinea Pig 6 years old - Bladder Stone - not sure what to do

    If she's in good health otherwise, she should be able to withstand the surgery ok. It's not too bad, as surgeries go.

    But please don't syringe her baby food. It's got way too much natural sugar...
  24. Behavior: Re: I'm not sure if my guinea was killed or died? We are very confused!

    While I agree that PetSmart is a terrible place to get pigs, this issue is NOT about PetSmart, so let's just leave that out of the discussion. This pig had been in this home a year, and where it...

    Injury: Re: Scab? On Guinea Pig's Ear

    Just keep a close eye on it. If you see signs of beginning infection (heat, redness, swelling, pus), then put some triple antibiotic cream on it twice a day. Be sure to rub it in well.
