    Guinea pig heartbroken?

    Does anyone know this answer, I had two male guinea pigs whom I gave to a friend for her classroom, the children are not allowed to handle them, they only feed them and all was fine, however, yesterday they found one of them dead, he was upside down. I was told they always had water and plenty...

    I Haven't been on for a while. Just wanted to inform you all of a loss...

    I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my Copper today, he was only about 16 months old had a breathing problem but it was not URI so I don't know what it was, the vet thought maybe cancer. I cleaned cages today too and put mine outside for a while. In shade, hay and so forth, I live in Northern AZ...

Really its none of anyone's business, but since you are in this situation now, I would just make sure your home is clean make that a priority along with taking care of your children.

    On his last legs

    How old was your guinea pig? Your regular vet I guess does handle guinea pigs? If not, it is a good idea to have someone lined up in case of something like this, sudden illness. So sorry for your lost.

    Help My Guinea Pigs Are Being Attacked!!!!! Help!!!

    Bring them in, you are taking a big chance keeping them outside. Find a place where you don't have them in your bedroom for your allergies. Even the garage if you have one would be better than outdoors to cats and whatever else may come by. I know everyone on here means well in helping you, it...

    Well nice story, but losing a child to a dog is horrifying no matter what the breed but it does tend to be these pittbulls and there is research out there that proves it.

    Water My piggy won't Drink!

    I think when you wet their veggies they do get water in their system, maybe she drinks more at night when you are not aware of it and maybe she just does not need as much water as you may think she needs. I would keep an eye on her and weigh her too each day.

    Water My piggy won't Drink!

    Are you using a bottle type? Also, make sure there is no vitamin C drops in there. Try giving her some in a bowl and see if she drinks from it just to check it out and then maybe show her the bottle, put her mouth on it and dab water on her if you get what I mean, I hope this helps, maybe...

    Hi! My sister tells me the same thing about the tax, she lives in Switzerland, I think if we did that here in the US perhaps we would have more responsible owners. Good day..

    There is no reason for anyone to get an attitude over this. Until you have lost a child to a pitbull you do not have any idea what damage they can cause. Yes, all dogs are a potential problem if they are not treated right, in fact most animals are not going to be wonderful if they are...

    I don't like them, they are unpreditable like rottweilers and I would never suggest having one with young children. I suppose they are great for protecting property, but not to be used as a family pet. I know of people who have had serious mishaps from these type of animals.
