    Photos I have returned!

    It has been awhile since I've been on here, hasn't it? Last time I was here I had my trio but since then I have lost both the head girl Smacko along with fatty girl Cutie. Now I've gone down to a pair consisting of Petra and my little girl chip (which is short for chipmunk :)) I just thought I'd...

    Urine blood in urine or normal young guinea pig urine?

    I'll certainly keep an eye on her but you may be right, seems to just be from the air/her being young. She seems fine at the moment and is enjoying her floor time with the other girls, plenty of popcorning and happy chatter :)

    Urine blood in urine or normal young guinea pig urine?

    My mistake, he doesn't do desexing of guinea pigs but he does have fellow vets in the clinic that come from small animal practices, quite a lot actually.

    Urine blood in urine or normal young guinea pig urine?

    No squeaking when urinating or anything like that and doesn't seem to come up straight away, 3-5 minutes later is when it seems to show the colour. I think I might get her checked, I'll have to see what my new vet says about his usual guinea pig customers as I know he does rabbits general care...

    Urine blood in urine or normal young guinea pig urine?

    Yesterday I noticed orange/red stains on a tea towel I am using in my guinea pigs c & c cage. I haven't seen it on any of the others so maybe it's just cause it's a lighter one? I've usually got a grey coloured fleece in the cage so it is possible she has always had orange/red urine, if not for...

    Rabbits Australian,Vic rabbit desexing: Keysborough animal shelter VS Pets on Elgar VS RSPCA

    Do you have the prices for the desexing? And whether keysborough gives pain meds like I've heard they are meant to ?(correct me if I'm wrong) If it was just one bun I'd probably go straight to RSPCA but I have 3 or 4 that need to be done (we have two adults and a litter which we are keeping at...

    Rabbits Australian,Vic rabbit desexing: Keysborough animal shelter VS Pets on Elgar VS RSPCA

    Okay so I've asked about Rabbit savy vets in Victoria before but didn't really get an answer sooo I have done a bit of research in the meantime. It seems to be down to these three places due to price and knowledge of the vet practices but I was wondering if anyone has been to Pets on elgar...

    Rabbits Rabbit savy vets in Vic, Australia?

    I'm not sure if this is the place to ask but my efforts to find an active australia rabbit fourm has been invain. What I'm looking for is a rabbit savy vet that does desexing, what I have found is that the ones that are rabbit savy either cost a fortune to go to or are hours away and I am not...

    Wood Pellets/Chips Fleece and Wood pellets: Love it or hate it?

    Honestly I am not fazed by the noises they make plus the pellets will be under fleece which reduces the sound. They already like to wheek in the middle of the night and randomly get up to have a drink which is out of a bottle a loss ball in it that likes to clank all the time so it's really not...

    Although the bags that are available at this time of year arn't as cheap as I'd like I still plan on having them in my cage, thanks everyone!

    Wood Pellets/Chips Anyone used this brand of wood pellet litter?

    I wasn't sure if they were indeed kiln dried or not as I've never used wood pellets at all so if you guys believe they are then that is great ^-^ As for horse stall pellets I am going do to the feed barn today or tomorrow anyway so I could probably ask them whether they have any, they do have...

    Wood Pellets/Chips Anyone used this brand of wood pellet litter?

    It seems that because it is still summer over here in Australia getting wood pellets for things like wood fires are just not happening. I did find this brand of wood pellets used as litter not only for cats but for small animals as well. The site says they are non clumping and don't have...

    Coroplast 2.5 mm (millimeters) a suitable corflute thickness?

    Okay that's good to know then, if I had to I'd clip the corflute to the grids anyway so if the table (which is solid as you can get) and the grids are enough to support the corflute then I will be happy :3 Now if I can get like 2 more grids to extend my cage to a 2 x 5 then I'll be all good haha...

    Australia Oxbow sells in Australia?

    I don't think I can get your vets pellets as I'm in vic but it was worth a try :'D And yes those are the same carrots I was talking about haha my pigs and rabbit's have about a carrot or a carrot and a half every othere day so that shouldn't be a problem for them since it's split between two...

    Australia Oxbow sells in Australia?

    What part of Australia are you in? Even $24 is better than $30+ I've thought of going without pellets but I rarely have a constant supply of fresh veggies, carrots are the only think that is constantly in the house as we can get huge bags for cheap but it seems everyone is against feeding...

    Coroplast 2.5 mm (millimeters) a suitable corflute thickness?

    So I've been looking around for some decent priced corflute for a while now and recently found a 2440mm x 1220mm sheet for $11. Is this thick enough or do I need a thicker base? It's going to sit on a stable desk so it shouldn't have any problems right?

    Australia Oxbow sells in Australia?

    Thanks to the sale at best friend's pet shop I was finally able to get a 2.2 kg bag of Oxbow guinea pig food, lucky for me it was only $27.50 marked down from a whopping $33. That might not seem much to you guys but we usually get our normal stuff for $6 per 7kg bag. Problem is it was my money...

    Stands What do you guys use as a stand?

    I just got my grids to start my c&c cage and can't be more thrilled! :D not only did I get them for a bargain at $6 for the lot but instead of getting 16 like I thought i was I instead ended up with 20 grids + 19 connectors! So now that I have my c&c cage coming along I need something to sit...
