    Pellets Guinea pig dumps his food on the ground.

    Every day after placing Fresh Prince's food bowl on the floor of the cage he knocks it over and eats the pellets off the ground. Should I be concerned and is this normal? Thanks!

    General I'm not sure if this fits here, but what foods can I feed my pigs while I'm broke

    I don't know if this is an option for you (In terms of were you live). If there is a farm supply near you (or a store like it). They will usually sell you a whole bale of timothy hay for 20 dollars. This bale is about 30 times the hay in a regular hay bag.

    General My little miss guinea has a boo boo

    It's best not to buy pigs because you feel sorry for them. And Petland is still not a legitimate rescue or shelter they make money off of impulse purchases like petco and petsmart. And you may be attached but its best not to be too attached because pet store piggies don't usually live very...

    General My little miss guinea has a boo boo

    I know you feel bad for this pet but if you bought the pig like this its already a bad sign. I think you should return the pig to the pet store and get a new pig from a legitimate rescue or shelter. As sad as it is, your better off not supporting companies like petco and petsmart that keep their...

    Bedding Does it matter what type of bedding we use?

    If you dont want to pay alot for Carefresh, You can buy wood shavings as long as they are Aspen. Don't buy Cedar or Pine because your Pigs could develop a URI from it.

    UPDATE: It has been a couple days now and the piggies have been doing fine on a hay and veggies only diet. Also they are both about two years old.

    Pellets Mom bought unhealthy food and refuses to buy new one.

    My original question was: In the meantime before I can get new food; Should I feed them the Sweet Harvest or just not give them any food and put them on a diet of veggies and hay.

    Cavy Cuisine is Oxbow. Its the older type though, that's why i'm concerned. And we have no Cavy Essentials left.

    Pellets Mom bought unhealthy food and refuses to buy new one.

    My parents are extremely stubborn when it comes to this. She will not return it, plus its already opened. Me and my sisters are thinking of just ordering Oxbow off of Amazon but Amazon only carries cavy cuisine.

    Pellets Mom bought unhealthy food and refuses to buy new one.

    My mom went to farm supply the other day and bought a bag of cheap quality guinea pig food, Kaylor of Colorado Sweet Harvest. She refuses to go to petsmart and buy oxbox food. My question is: Should I feed it to therm or just not give them pellets?

    General I'm a New Guinea pig owner, and I have some questions about his behavior.

    What about the midwest cage for housing two females?

    Fur How long does it take for a short-haired guinea pig's fur to grow back?

    I'm pretty sure guinea pigs have hair. Not fur.

    Behavior Bladder stone

    "Genesis" pellets are not good. I would feed her Oxbow Essentials Young Guinea Pig Food. And alfalfa pellets and alfalfa hay is fine until they are 6 months old. Then give her Timothy based pellets and timothy hay.
