    RIP Paulie

    My dear friend Paulie died about an hour and a half ago. I started to notice that his eating and drinking habits changed on Thursday. He saw the vet on Friday, and she discovered a large buildup of gas in his belly. I took him home Friday night with some medications, but when I woke up Saturday...

    Caring for Paulie

    Hi guys, I have a question for all of you. I recently lost my younger piggie Dexter after a long battle with GI problems that resulted from a vet prescribing him amoxicillin (some of you may remember him). However, I have an older pig by the name of Paulie. They were cagemates, although not...

    RIP Dexter

    My guinea pig Dexter died Sunday afternoon at just 2 years, 2 months old. Some of you may remember Dexter as I posted on here a few months ago about how a vet prescribed him amoxicillin and about the battle to keep him alive. He fought so hard the past few months through seven medications and...

Just over a week ago, I noticed that his squeaks were very muffled, and he was wheezing a bit. I took him...

    Building new cage

    I want to build a new cage for my pig, Paulie, with the cubes and coroplast. I have a concern that I might be able to afford the bedding for a big cage. It's expensive with a smaller cage now. For those with the C&C cages, how often do you have to get new bedding? How much do you spend on...

    Looking for a male pig near Chicago

    I'm looking for a younger male guinea pig to go along with my current male guinea pig, Paulie. I've had Paulie for almost two-and-a-half years now and would really like to get him a friend. The nearest place I've been able to find a pig for adoption is about 2-3 hours from here and all were...

    Yet another newbie

    Hi all! My name is Andy, and I live with my buddy, Paulie. He's a 2 1/2-year-old boar and is as cute as the dickens! I hope to have a picture up here soon, but he's all brown with a white spot on top of his head and a white beard. He's sitting here, wanting to type on the keyboard. He's a feisty...
