    Re: Housing Males And Females Together

    Oh yeah, I see things like that all the time online. I had to stop browsing guinea pigs on Kijiji because I'd just get depressed. Almost every single post advertised a female + male living...

    Eyes: Re: Michael's Medical Thread

    Hi! I just had Michael's nails trimmed by a groomer and she trimmed one nail really short! Im having a hard time to quench the bleeding with corn starch and he seems scared to walk. Do I wash off...
  3. Want a GP: Re: Have a Guinea pig, want to get another so she isn't Lonely. Parents don't believe

    I know many people who own a single guinea pig and swear up and down that they are the happiest pigs on the entire planet. Guinea pigs are herd animals and nothing can really change that... I...
  4. Want a GP: Re: Have a Guinea pig, want to get another so she isn't Lonely. Parents don't believe

    I think that it is safe to assume that many people don't do proper research before getting a new pet, so nothing to be too embarrassed about! It's good that you are now taking the time to educate...

    Eyes: Re: Michael's Medical Thread

    For the past few days Michael has been wheezing when he wheeks. Hippo (his cagemate) wheezes constantly because of his heart murmur, but the vet checked Michael's heart before and she said it...
  6. Heart Issues: Re: Piggy diagnosed with a heart murmur today - still worried

    Thanks a bunch! Both of the pigs seem to be fine this morning, they are munching on their hay and there is lots of poop in the cage :)
  7. Heart Issues: Re: Piggy diagnosed with a heart murmur today - still worried

    I'm totally freaking out! I just woke up from a 2 hour long nap and when I went to give the pigs their vegetables tonight, I noticed that there was a chewed ziploc bag in their cage!! I have no...

    General: Re: piggies wont eat vitamin c tablet??

    My pigs hated those tablets when I first started buying them. After a week or so they suddenly loved them! Now at noon every day, my pigs wheek until they get their tablet. Maybe your pigs will...

    Behavior: Re: The bucking bronco

    One of my pigs, Michael, does exactly that. My Hippo does the pretty standard popcorn that most pigs seem to do, but Michael seems to have his own version of popcorning. The only word I can describe...
  10. Heart Issues: Re: Piggy diagnosed with a heart murmur today - still worried

    I'm just wondering how much weightloss is cause for concern? When I brought Hippo to the vet in October he weighed around 980 grams. Two weeks later he weighed in at his heaviest, 1010 grams. I...

    Fleece: Re: Got My Fleece Today!

    I'd say that liquid detergent would work just as well. Make sure it is unscented, you don't want to bother your guinea pigs with any strong smells. It takes me about 3 complete washes and drys with...

    Fleece: Re: Got My Fleece Today!

    I find that really odd how the liners aren't already pre-wicked. One of the pros of buying liners online is that the fleece is already wicked by the individual/supplier. Where did you purchase them?

    Fleece: Re: How many towels? (& cheap fleece tip)

    Mattress pads are a great absorbent layer to use, but many people choose to put these under their liners, not within them. So the order would be the coroplast bottom, a mattress pee pad, and finally...

    Fleece: Re: How many towels? (& cheap fleece tip)

    I used to use 2 layers of Uhaul, but now that I have a bigger cage (3x6 C&C), I make my liners with 1 layer instead since my pigs have lots of room to spread out the pee. How big is your cage? When...

    Fleece: Re: How many towels? (& cheap fleece tip)

    I've used towels for some of the first liners I've made and I used 2 towels. That being said, they got stinky really quick and took FOREVER to dry. I'm talking about hours in the dryer or being...
  16. Keeping Warm: Re: How to Keep an Older Male Guinea Pig Warm

    I have a skinny who seems to always be chilled. I try to keep my room's temperature at 22C (not too hot so my hairy pig doesn't get warm) and I provide lots of snug fleece tunnels for him to lay in....

    Fleece: Re: So I Took My Liners Apart..

    I personally haven't had this problem! I use all of my liners quite often and wash them around once a week. I recently took apart some of my "noob" liners that I made when I first got my piggies,...

    Behavior: Re: Roof or No Roof?

    I would highly recommend having at least a little bit of your cage roofed. I have a 3x6 CC and 1x3 of it is covered with a fleece forest, and my boars absolutely love it. They spend a majority of...
  19. Adopting: Re: How soon till you can remove a litter from the mother?

    I think you're good if they're 3 weeks. I'm assuming this because 3 weeks is when male babies need to be separated from their mothers and sisters to prevent pregnancy.

    Re: George's medical thread

    That seems really low for an adult male around 2/3 years. My boars are 10 months and weigh 950 and 1030 grams. I'd weigh him daily to make sure he isn't losing weight.

    Hi Kayla :) I'm glad that your boys are interested in owning a guinea pig. That being said, it's important to note that guinea pigs thrive in pairs. They are a social animal and are happier and...

    Bonding: Re: Don't know if what im doing is wrong

    Nail trimming prices really depends! They generally float around $10-$20 dollars a pig where I live. I find that vets charge way more than a groomer or pet store would charge though. I've even...
  23. Heart Issues: Re: Piggy diagnosed with a heart murmur today - still worried

    Thank you! Next month when I pick up the pills from the vet's office I'll ask if I would be able to do that and see what she thinks about it. $20 instead of $100 a month will be a huge relief.
  24. Heart Issues: Re: Piggy diagnosed with a heart murmur today - still worried

    Ok thanks, I'm not good with anything related to science so I saw the difference from 0.1ml to 1ml and felt a little nervous! Hippo seems to enjoy the new medicine.

    Also, while looking up the...
