    Odd cough-sneeze-snort-a-ma-jig

    For substrate I use fleece with towels and care fresh underneath. for pellets I feed him timothy hay pellets. He gets timothy hay in a box (so he has to work for it..not too hard though!) and about a cup of vegies every night and treats though out the day. One thing I did notice last night was...

    Odd cough-sneeze-snort-a-ma-jig

    So after a couple of months of questioning where we were going to be moving to, I've made a nice roomy cage (2x3) for Sanchez. He loves it (though he was in a 2x5 for a good long time. that was before Thadius died). Though lately I've been hearing him do this snort/cough/sneeze noise, and its...

Check out the photo gallery on "cozies" to get an idea of things you can buy/make. I would NOT use a heating pad. Even if you put it under the coroplast it...

    I hate how terrible people's attitudes are.

    Can't believe it. Any one who veiws pets as a possesion should NOT own pets. possesions can be thrown away...but not family. My pets ARE my family. those people all make me sick. You really shouldn't take any of those pigs...by taking them, in some way, you are enableing that kind of behavior. I...

    Questions for a rescue.

    I'm assuming that this is where I should post these questions. I'm looking at three boys from my local humane society Home. They are here: Other. I want to ask them questions before adopting, and because Sanchez (the wonderful boar in my life) and I are new at this we wanted to see what you...

    Bald patches behind ears

    I found that when I added more vit C to my wheeker's diet the patches went away. Since I figured it was a form of survy (I called my vet and she said its cold have very well been) I added more tomatoes and yellow and red peppers. Now he has fluffy hair behind his ears! Hope this helps
