    Fleece Best type of Fleece to use?

    What is a great fleece to use? I have been sewing by hand and machine with antipill plush fleece, but I recently got a solid fleece from hobby lobby just marked as solid color fleece. It seems to be blizzard or polar fleece? It is different than my anti pill I get at Joanns. I like it too, much...

    Special Needs Issues with immune system and need special food

    Would the essentials pellets be better for picky pigs? The analysis of vitamins seems basically the same for both, except the essentials has vitamin C so I might go with the essentials pellets. Snowball gets the oxbow natural science Vitamin C support tabs daily. Plus lots of greens and veggies...

    Special Needs Issues with immune system and need special food

    Nvm, the Harrington stuff is not available in the US. I have found these instead: Premium Guinea Pig Food Pellets - Small Pet Select U.S. or Non-GMO, Soy-Free Guinea Pig Food Pellets - Small Pet Select U.S.

    Hay Small Pet Select this season

    I bought the 3rd cut timothy and got orchard hay by accident about 2 weeks ago. Then they sent the right hay free of cost, so I have both now. They both are fresh and green and smell good. My guinea pig loves the timothy more, but eats both all up fast. It is definitely good! She likes it more...

    Special Needs Issues with immune system and need special food

    Hello, I finally got my guinea pig Snowball to the vet and besides a paragraph of horrible issues with her, one was that her immune system isn't really working anymore. You can look at her vet medical thread for pictures of her and some things about her before the trip. I will be updating the...

    Fleece Thinking of making a fleece liner and need tips and help!

    Thanks for the help! I just want to make stuff like those fleece liners people sell on Etsy and since I'm starting a small pet business, I want to sell high quality sewn fleece liners. For my own pig, I may not sew the liners, but for ones I sell, I definitely want too.

    Fleece Thinking of making a fleece liner and need tips and help!

    So just the top and the absorbent fleece then? Or does it need a bottom layer, but doesn't need it waterproof?

    Cage 2x4 or 3x4 for arthritis guinea pig?

    Are there any cheap grids to make a stand? So I have a question... I am very poor so I can't really spend a lot just for a stand. This is the cage I'm buying: https://www.guineapigcagesstore.com/candc-cage-large Is this considered the cheapest for a stand...

    Cage 2x4 or 3x4 for arthritis guinea pig?

    Oh sweet thanks! I was about to start saving up around $230 to buy the cage and liners, but Craigslist sounds great to try as well as other sites and this one. Thanks for the help!

    Cage 2x4 or 3x4 for arthritis guinea pig?

    Thanks! I think I will just get the 2x4 cage then. I am definitely getting more piggies in the future, but my living situation right now just doesn't allow for it. I plan to add a ramp for the new guinea pigs I get, right now Snowball can't use any ramp. She needs a flat cage. Can something...

    Cage 2x4 or 3x4 for arthritis guinea pig?

    Please read all info! It's very important to me to get the right size! My 7 year old guinea pig, Snowball, seems to have arthritis or paralysis in her back legs. Because of this, as well as other medical issues which you can find in her medical thread, she can barely move. She can waddle...

    Snowball's medical thread

    I'm attempting to get a vet trip. Unfortunately my mom is against any vet care for animals except dogs or cats. She thinks just cuz Snowball is old and a guinea pig, she is fine and will just die anyway. So heartbreaking, but I'm calling a vet hospital today to ask for their treatments, exams...
