    Not Eating Not eating like normal and acting different - help! Is my guinea baby ok?

    bpatters- thanks! It’s interesting to hear a different opinion. I definitely agree that it would be better to get vitamin c from a natural source. That's a good point about us humans! Bugosmom- don’t worry, this info I’m 100% sure about ;) I wouldn't recommend the food you are feeding. On the...

    Not Eating Not eating like normal and acting different - help! Is my guinea baby ok?

    I?m really really sorry- I was trying to help, I didn?t realize that my information was incorrect. I have only heard of young guinea pigs getting the extra calcium through alfalfa hay and pellets, I?m really sorry. I didn?t know that you could have only alfalfa hay or pellets, or calcium rich...

    Sick Breathing weird

    I’m sorry, I don’t really know what it could be. Did you take your other guinea pig to an experienced exotics vet? If not, then the information you got might of been wrong. I think he should go to a vet (a different and more experienced exotics vet), he sounds sick, but you’re the one living...

    Not Eating Not eating like normal and acting different - help! Is my guinea baby ok?

    If your guinea pig is under some year old, he should not be eating Timothy pellets. Babies need an alfalfa-based pellet to give them extra nutrients when they are growing. A good brand of pellets is Oxbow, it can usually be found in pet stores online (look at link on bottom of page).” What brand...

    Feet Questions About Jasmine's Toenail

    Hi everyone! I'm sorry, I know that I should not start a new thread for a guinea pig that I already have a thread for, but I don't understand how to change the title (my last question was about coughing and my new question is about feet). I have noticed one of Jasmine's toenails is thicker and...

    Coughing Guinea Pig Coughing and Sneezing

    OK thanks! We are currently using tide pods free & gentle or the regular tide, we will try the unscented kind. Also, she coughs and sneezes even when she is out playing with us when she is not on her bedding, do you think she would still cough and sneeze if the issue was the laundry detergent?

    Coughing Guinea Pig Coughing and Sneezing

    Thanks! We think that she might be sensitive to the laundry detergent because she never sneezed at our friends house.wWe will be keeping an eye on her weight.

    Hi! My friends needed someone to watch her guinea pigs over the winter, so we are taking care of two of them for her. We just got them a week ago. One of them, named Jasmine, we have noticed has been coughing and sneezing a lot (we are not sure if it is coughing and sneezing but it is the best...
