    Vet: Re: Boar Cleaning Vet in NYC?

    How about a video that will show you how to do it? Lots cheaper, and just as effective.

    Re: Sweet dreams, Smuckers

    I'm so very sorry. But thank you for taking Smuckers in and caring for her when she needed it most.
  3. Not Eating: Re: Urgent!! MY PIG IS HOOTING!! Not eating, drinking, moving much.

    Your pig needs a vet, ASAP. Where are you? City/state, not your actual address. We might be able to help you find a VET (not pig). My bad.

    Hay: Re: Advice on Orchard Grass Hay

    Any grass hay (timothy, orchard, meadow, blue, brome) is suitable for guinea pigs, although brome is lower quality than the others. I can't imaging why they'd suggest orchard over timothy.

    Sexing: Re: Help with sexing...

    Females do mount, but turn all the pigs over and compare their private parts. If s/he looks different, separate her.
  6. Bullying: Re: Guinea pig chewing hair off her sick sister.

    Did you mean respiratory? Did the vet give you any medication for either one of those infections?

    You didn't give any indication that the other pig is bullying her into not eating. Barbering a...

  8. Re: Grieving time is over and looking to get two guinea pigs

    Is there a guinea pig rescue or shelter around you? Getting pigs there not only gives a loving home to pigs who need one, but frees up their shelter spaces for someone else to be rescued. And if...

    General: Re: Location location location

    Personally, I wouldn't let them run around loose in a home with elderly people. There's potential danger on both sides -- the pigs could get stepped on, or they could trip the people. I'd make it a...

    Urine: Re: Red Urine

    We're roughly a month out from when you first reported this, which would be two heat cycles. My suspicion is that this is heat related. It's not enough blood to be dangerous, and if it goes away in...

    Re: Sick guinea pig help needed asap

    I would not separate, because they've all already been exposed, and she may be stressed out by being alone. But I would take her to the vet.
  17. Size: Re: I have a cage size delema -- what would you do in this situation?

    I wouldn't get guinea pigs if I couldn't provide a large flat area for them to run around in.

    Cleaning: Re: How do I make my cage smell better

    The question I have is how old they are? If they're just coming into puberty, they may be scent marking the cage. That's a very different smell than peed-on hay and poop, which is generally the...

    Re: New owner, tons of questions!

    Take clear, close-up, well-lit pictures and post them here. Someone can help sex them.

    And turn them both over at the same time so you can compare them. You need to sex them both, not just one. ...
