    New Kid(?) on the Block

    Hello and welcome to the forum! It sounds like your at least a bit more prepared than your friend and have done your research, so well done! Truffles is a beautiful name, for an equally beautiful guinea pig :D

    Skin Problems What's that behind his eye??

    I think you should continue using the betadine, as there may not be any results for a few more days. It doesn't look to have improved a whole lot, but we'll wait and see.

    What breed? What breed is this piggy

    Some beautiful guinea pigs in those pictures... Great markings! The one in the first few pictures looks about three quarters or more teddy and a small mix of something else. Shes lovely all the same!

    Urine Confused, Too much calcium?

    Hi, Almost all guinea pigs will get white spots, no matter their diet. In the picture, there appears to be a healthy amount of calcium deposits. I have had far worse, so I don't think there is anything to worry about. If you can, feel the dried calcium spots and check if it is gritty, or...

    UK UHaul in the uk?

    You can't (as far as I know) get Uhaul pads in the UK and Ireland. There are a couple of alternatives though. You can buy a large pack of puppy pads which act the same way as Uhaul pads. You can also put towels under your fleece to absorb the pee.

    C&C Move my kitchen downstairs?

    Its entirely up to you whether you want to move the kitchen downstairs. If you actually see them going up to the kitchen to eat and drink, there's probably nothing to worry about. But if you feel they dislike going up, you could always move the kitchen downstairs and make a bedroom area upstairs.

    Naming your Guineas

    My guinea pigs came with their names: Buccaneer and Ling. I thought the names suited and were cute, so they stuck :)

    Behavior silly pigs!

    One of my guinea pigs likes to 'knead' on my lap. You know the way when a cat comes across something soft like a blanket, it will lift its paws up and down? Thats what my guinea pig buccaneer does!

    Exercise Playtime/Laptime

    I get my two out for about five minutes each in the evening per day. Neither of them mind it terribly... Its just when they are being picked up that the storm starts!!!

    Want a Guinea Pig(s) What else will I need for my new pets?

    I recommend getting a dustpan and brush, if you don't already have one. It makes cleaning up the cage so much easier! Also save up some cardboard boxes and cut out two entrances for the piggies to go through :) Instant hit!

    Exactly asnnbrg... The adrenaline stops the pain for a short time, allowing the animal to get away.
