    Bonding Tips on picking up guinea pigs!

    For my skittish pig, I get her into the pigloo, reach one hand inside and under her, and pick the pigloo up with my other hand. She tends to scream until she's on my chest (I think it just freaks her out to not have her feet on anything firm) It doesn't seem like the /nicest/ way to pick them...

    Towels Fleece newbie: Odor questions

    I use wood pellets in the kitchen area (where the hay and pellets are) and one layer of towel under fleece. There is no smell, and our bedroom is pretty small (about 12ft by 12ft). Our pigs go potty mostly in the kitchen, on the pellets, which is probably why it doesn't smell. Sent from my...

    Coughing Coughing when they eat

    Guinea pigs tend to eat really fast, which is probably why they cough, my pigs do it too. I don't think it's anything to worry about if they don't have any other symptoms. Sent from my SM-G386T using Tapatalk

    C&C Ladder for cage

    I believe if the second level is a full grid (14 inches) above the lower level, the ramp needs to be 28 inches long. You can use coroplast with bent grids for a ramp. Sent from my SM-G386T using Tapatalk

    Conditions Jamie [ my guinea pig] is shaking all time, what to do?

    it just looks like he's breathing, but it might be somewhat fast/heavy. I don't really have any suggestions, except to listen when he breathes, and if it sounds heavy (like huffing) or if he's whistling, take him to an exotic vet and see what they can figure out. Sent from my SM-G386T using...
