    Sick Guinea pig not eating food nor medicine. Any advice?

    Possible tooth extraction surgery with abscess on the cheek. Advice needed. Thanks. Hi, it's been a while since the last time I was on here. I read the regulation that says one pig one thread but the last thread was too long ago the system doesn't let me add anymore posts. So forgive me for...

    Sick Guinea pig not eating food nor medicine. Any advice?

    Thanks, Pinky. I tried giving him only the fruit with the syringe so maybe he'll cooperate when I do give him the pellet mash. And I did manage to get a couple of bites in his mouth, and he still won't cooperate. Everytime I try to give him more he starts to wiggle out of the towel burrito. He...

    Sick Guinea pig not eating food nor medicine. Any advice?

    I tried it with the syringe again and it was a big failure. I even tried the position they had on the picture. He just gets too crazy everytime we try to keep him still. I tried it again without touching him and he still won't take it. I'm afraid if I hold him still using any more strength he'll...

    Sick Guinea pig not eating food nor medicine. Any advice?

    Thanks for the help guys. The vet prescribed baytril for antibiotics and he didn't mention anything about probiotics. He did give me critical care but the smell is too powerful for Snowball. I've tried using the syringe that the vet gave me, but I didnt know that I should cut the tip. Do I just...

    Sick Guinea pig not eating food nor medicine. Any advice?

    When I noticed that he's not eating much for a couple of days, I took him to the vet. So on saturday I found out that Snowball got slight pneumonia but the main cause of him not eating is a bruised stomach. The vet gave him a needle injection to trigger the stomach, gave me medicine for the...

    Bathing How do you clean out the pee stains?

    My guinea pig is completely white all over. When I first got him I used to bathe him on a monthly basis until the vet told me to change it to once every 2 or 3 month. So I did. But the thing is, Snowball likes to sit in his litter box so his stomach and hind legs are completely yellow. It's been...

    Sounds Teeth Chattering. What is he trying to say?

    I've had him for almost a year now. He did the teeth chattering for the first little while so I was trying to map out the meanings with the situations we were in. After that it's once a month at the most. So now I give up and find it would be easier to just ask online. Although on wikipedia it...

    Sounds Teeth Chattering. What is he trying to say?

    I can understand most noises my guinea pig makes except for the teeth chattering. I just don't get it. It's mostly soft chattering and I'm confused. Anyone got any ideas what he might be trying to say?

    Behavior Worried: Is my piggie going to forget about me?

    Kathlarron, you're piggies are adorable! I wasn't really jealous when my friend told me Snowball likes to circle around him and his brother. I was Snowball's favorite only for a couple of weeks until my mom came back from China. It took me a while to get to know him. I really like your cage...

    Behavior Worried: Is my piggie going to forget about me?

    It's been a while since I'm on this forum, because my Snowball is away at my friend's while my family deals with the moving situation. Apparently, having pets in the house isn't good when also having people to come look at it. But I've already covered this problem in my other thread. My...

    Nails/Nail Trimming Do vets charge for nail trimming?

    My dad used to do the nail trimmings for my pig but Snowball is at my friend's place because my family is moving and there's too much going on. My friend owns a bunny and he does regular nail trimmings for her. But I'm not sure if same details apply with bunny nail trimming. So I'm thinking...

    Hay Hay farm in the Greater Vancouver BC?

    Long story short, I was planning on getting a bale of hay today from a farm in Langley. I already called a few days ahead to let him know I'm coming today, but when I called back for an address today no one picked up and I'm out of hay right now. I will go buy some petstore hay but the long term...
