    Neutering/Spaying: Re: Recovery after surgery

    Don't discontinue the Critical Care just yet. Despite the fact that he seems to be eating on his own, it's probably not enough. At a minimum, I would feed him CC twice a day and give him as much as...
  2. Chat Re: Funny Piggy Experience. Made me laugh so hard..

    Pretty funny, but I'm sure you had to be there to get the full impact.

    We NEVER assume that a cavy won't pee on us no matter how good his manners are. :rolleyes: For that reason, towels are a big...
  3. Genitals: Re: JellyBean - 8 wk female not cleaning her bottom/genitals?

    Yup, nervous baby-pig mama. Your other two girls don't have white fur in that area, so how do you know that they have better hygiene? Give JellyBean a break......she's a baby and needs some time to...

    Neutering/Spaying: Re: Recovery after surgery

    He needs to have food moving through his g.i. system to avoid stasis, so feeding a pellet slurry or Critical Care is mandatory if he's not eating on his own. If you have Amazon Prime, you can have...

    Re: Hello cavie family!

    Welcome to the Forum! There is just nothing cuter than young cavies. :love:

    You say that you have had cavies for several years in the past, so you obviously aren't a newbie. Just know that if you...
  7. Bonding: Re: New Baby Cavy - Adding to my existing piggies?

    Behavior: Re: Acting spooked/differently

    Absolutely none! ;) The behavior sounds absolutely adorable!

    Don't believe what you read about rumbling and what it is "supposed" to mean. As an example, Sparky rumbles at virtually EVERYTHING...
  9. Re: Unplanned adoption, seeking input on my check list

    You may already be aware of these, but just some tips based on my own experience. I do the entire routine without help. And, I don't try to distract with treats.....they come after the procedure.

    Re: What sex are my guinea pigs

    Those are excellent pics, @Soecara. Thanks for posting them!
  11. Re: United tells family they can't fly with guinea pigs after allowing it on their pr

    No irony in this story because United simply only permits dogs and cats in the cabin, not other animals. The problem in this case was the uninformed gate agents in Bozeman who should never have...

    Hay: Re: Can hay cause soft poo?

    I was going to suggest that you donate the hay to a rescue and start over, but......you ARE a rescue. Perhaps buy a new box of the usual hay and mix it with the current one to avoid the issue. That...
  13. Re: Unplanned adoption, seeking input on my check list

    You big softie! Now you understand how I feel during those times (however infrequent) when I am pigless. As is known, my cage sits alongside my desk in my small home office and when the cage is...
  14. Bonding: Re: New Baby Cavy - Adding to my existing piggies?

    @bpatters......I was hoping that you would be along soon.......I didn't have the requisite link for introductions.

    @RubysMama......You say that you have never had young cavies previously? From...
  15. Bonding: Re: New Baby Cavy - Adding to my existing piggies?

    What a cutie! Thanks for taking her in.

    If she is only 8 weeks old, she is probably desperately lonely and will benefit from being with the other two. Do you know where and what environment she...

    The "search" function on the Forum will provide all sorts of useful information if you use it. In fact, less than 2-3 weeks ago this very topic came up yet again. And, no, you won't be carrying them...

    Hay: Re: Allergic reaction to Timothy Hay

    Timothy hay is highly allergenic to many people! :ohmy: When we first started keeping cavies (this time), my husband had such a severe allergic reaction that the piggies almost had to leave the...

    Fly free over the Rainbow Bridge, Magneto! And, know how much you were loved. :love:
  19. Re: Unplanned adoption, seeking input on my check list

    Why don't you PM me with an email addy so that we can communicate off-list and are not limited insofar as the number of pics are concerned? I have a number of pics of my cage and stand in progress...
  20. Weight: Re: Is this the end? Guinea pig has slowly stopped eating, dropped weight suddenly

    I absolutely agree with @GuineaPigPapa! So long as his quality of life is still good, don't give up on him until he gives up. Both of us have been in similar situations and have had the cavy in...
  21. Re: Unplanned adoption, seeking input on my check list

    What a lucky piggy to have been adopted by your family! I knew that you wouldn't be without a cavy for long. :rolleyes:

    If you decide to fashion a cage stand out of grids, let me know and I can...
  22. Joy: Re: Do your piggies play with toys/what are their favorites?

    ARRRGH! Thought I'd try one more time. I bought the Oxbow Timothy Twists for Sparky......not even a nibble......totally ignored it. Absolutely zero interest. :crazy: Guess it's back to cardboard...

    Chat Re: Any tips for flying with piggies?

    Then you have a problem. That's just about the only way you will be able to transport your cavies. Most airlines (at least domestically) will carry animals in a temperature-controlled cargo...
  24. Joy: Re: Do your piggies play with toys/what are their favorites?

    I seriously doubt that breed has much to do with it. I've been in love with Abys for 30 years and only have had another breed in recent years when I had a Texel sow (Maya in my Avatar). In general...
  25. Joy: Re: Do your piggies play with toys/what are their favorites?

    I have never had a cavy who would play with toys! Over the years, I've tried many different items and they had absolutely NO interest in most of them.

    That being said, Sparky is mad for paper and...
