    Diet: Re: Calcium?

    I agree with @Soecara Saskia does sound like she has done some research on the subject (I really wish she had referenced her sources in the video), but much of what she says seems to be opinion...

    Re: Pig Sitting Conundrum!

    I agree that having the pigs stay with your friends sounds like the best option.

    A 20-minute drive is nothing. I adopted 2 of the 4 pigs I've owned in the past from Knoxville, a 2-hour drive from...

      Cage: Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    I'm going to be trying out fleece over a layer of wood pellets this time around, because I've heard so much good stuff about it. This was the only suitable brand I could find locally about 10 minutes...

      Cage: Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    And the whole thing is set up on top of 2 IKEA lack tables and, at my Mom's back-saving suggestion, pulled out a foot or so from the wall so I can get behind it for easier cleaning access:

      Cage: Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    Thought I'd show off photos of the PigPen, mark 3! It's all ready for piggies! Just got a little more saving up to do; I'm hoping by the end of the holidays I'll be ready! :D

    So at first I was...

    Treats: Re: Piggies and Pumpkin questions

    This is mostly a guess, but I would think the actual hard, pulpy part (the part between the skin and the goop) is probably what is eaten when people eat pumpkins. I mean, pumpkin is a winter squash,...

  10. General: Re: Can Chewing the Bars Hurt their Teeth?

    Bar biting is never a good thing, and it can absolutely damage their teeth. Doesn't matter at all whether they're using their incisors or their molars (although I doubt they're using their molars --...

    Mites: Re: fleas? or mites? maybe both!

    Sounds like it's probably fleas, as mites don't jump and fleas are celebrated jumpers. If your pigs aren't showing any symptoms of being very irritated by the fleas yet, you might be able to treat...

    Crusty Eyes: Re: Stain in Corner of Guinea Pig's Eye

    I second trying the anti-fungal shampoo. Flower had kind of a chronic, mild dandruff/shedding/itching thing going on and it seemed to help her to be bathed with Nizoral shampoo.

    Urine: Re: Collecting a Urine Sample

    That should be enough. I used to be a vet tech and I would occasionally check urine on my own pigs at work. It's not a lot, but I could always make 1 mL work!

  19. How Many: Re: Do I keep a mom and baby together?

    That was my thinking, too. Pigs that are directly related tend to have a better chance of getting along than two unrelated pigs. Plus, since one is the mother of the other, the dominance ranking is...
  20. How Many: Re: Do I keep a mom and baby together?

    I would think taking baby's mom would be a good solution. You can always wait and get another female from a different litter, but since mom and baby are directly related and already know each other,...
