    Striped poops?

    I put this in the nutrition category because I figured it has to do with something theyíre eating. My guinea Panic is pooping dark brown with a light brown stip (takes up about 1/3-1/4 of the poop).
    ive seen a lot of posts relating to this, so I donít know if should be concerned. She eats and drinks regularly and shows no signs of anything abnormal. So I havenít taken her to a vet yet. I donít think my other guinea Fleetwood has the stripe in her droppings. I feed them Vito guinea pig food, and pet supplies plus Timothy hay.

    It's caused by whatever they're eating. If the poops are the normal shape, size and consistency, it's fine.

    I never heard of Vito guinea pig food. Are you talking VitaKraft? If so, it's usually crap stuff with all sorts of unneeded, possibly dangerous things in it. You need a plain hay pellet (alfalfa if the pig is under six months, timothy if over). The only pellets we recommend in the U.S. are Oxbow and KMS Hayloft.

    You can't delete. Copy your post and paste it over there, and I'll close this one.

    What do you want your medical thread named?
