    General Rescued 4, now there's more

    Last Monday (a week and a half ago), I rescued 4 adult guinea pigs that were living in a 2x2 plywood box. I got them home and set them up in a 3x6 cube on old towels cage. (I don't have my coroplast for them yet). I set them up with food (LM Animal Farms), Timothy hay and fresh water. They...

    Candle concerns

    I know I'm new to guinea pigs, but I do know some about candles. This hit me this morning when I lit one of my candles, that some may not know the dangers in certain kinds of candles. Paraffin candles are made from the byproduct of deisel production and give off the same toxins into the air...

    Bathing guinea pigs

    Are you supposed to bathe guinea pigs? How often? What do you wash them with? Is baby shampoo ok?

    New piggie owner with questions

    I recently "inherited" two female piggies. They came in a 3ftx18inch cage. I am getting the stuff together to build a 3x7 C&C cage. I am really excited about this. One of my girls is really fat. She gets stuck in her igloo and drags it around the cage with her. What can I do, besides...
