    General Hack for buying guinea pig bedding and hay and food additions

    I can?t remember off the top of my head at the moment, but is it okay to feed alfalfa hay to grown pigs? I have an opportunity to get a bale of alfalfa for only $5 but won?t do it if it?s not good for them. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fruit Kiwi - skin or no skin

    What happens if I gave my pigs a slice of kiwi with the brown fuzzy skin stil on? They were thin slices and all three of them loved it. Will the skin hurt them on oranges as well? Thanks.

    Loss Bye Cocoa

    Two weeks ago today I had to say goodbye to my sweet Cocoa. I have absolutely no idea what happened. I woke up on that Friday morning and she was on her side twitching. By the time I got dressed and ready to take her to the vet, she was gone. I am devastated. I don't have the money to have an...

    Water Bad mommy (me) ran out of water

    How did I do that? Don't ask - a ton of things going on in my life at the moment and I can't believe I ran out of my filtered water and their water bottle is empty. Aaahhh!! Gonna be running to the store here in a bit, so here's my question: will feeding them their veggies hold them off for a...

    Nutrition Spoiled Piggie?

    I buy fresh fruit for me and I'll share a small amount with my two pigs. I'll buy strawberries for me and give them a small one to share. I'll buy an apple and cut into slices for me and take one slice and cut it in half and give it to them. But this is all sporadic and once in a while. Again...

    Water Natural Spring Water (BOTTLED WATER)

    I didn't think I'd be able to find the reverse osmosis water either. I laughed really hard when I did, because apparently I had been using it without knowing it. If you look at the label on the gallon jugs at the supermarket for "purified water," it is done with reverse osmosis. I get mine at...

    My chronic illness and surrendering

    I am truly sorry that you have physically deteriorated as much as you have. I feel some of your pain!!! I don't have permanent PTSD, but did experience it to a degree after 9/11. I used to work in Tower One many years ago while attending college. I also started experiencing panic attacks at...

    Brands Which Pellet Should I Use?

    I believe the only decent pellet you can purchase in a store is the Oxbow brand, but I've never used it, so I'm sure someone else on here can be more specific about it and where it can be purchased. I've used both KMS pellets and Small Pet Select and my pigs like both. KMS tends to have...

    Vegetables Best vegetables and fruits for guineas?

    So I tried the yam last night. They both grabbed it out of my hand and then tasted it. They aren't wild about it, but I'd say when I woke up this morning, about half of each piece were eaten. They absolutely wouldn't eat Cilantro when I first gave it to them, they left it in the cage and...
