    Level of Effort? How much more. . .

    Well from 2 to 6-7 will be a lot more effort in my opinion. That is 3 times the hay, pellets, vegetables, space in your home, vet bills, your time and energy for floor time etc. I guess you will know if you look in your bank account and know you can spend three times the amount of money on your...

    Videos Guinea pig shaking? heart beat? Video

    I really think you need to understand what Bpatters had said earlier to you. You should be saving your money for future vet visits BEFORE you decide to adopt a guinea pig. Your guinea pig should not be thought of as an animal that when "broken" can then be replaced by one that isn't. These...

    Play more pictures of my piggies!

    Hey thanks for sharing your pictures! They are very cute :) I was just curious if you are considering building them a C&C cage? They look awfully cramped in that little cage and probably would be much better off with some more space. Also, salt wheels are not necessary for guinea pigs.

    Blog Kingsley's First Vet Visit

    So if you have been following my blog, you will know that I recently adopted a second pig, Ludovic, who is in quarantine. In the time of the quarantine I had planned to take both pigs at separate times to the vet to get a check up and medicated if there are any issues. I found an exotic vet in...

    Sick Is he ok?

    Do you by chance weigh him on a regular basis to see about weight gain or loss? If he begins to lose weight that is usually a good indicator that something is medically wrong with your guinea pig. If you are really worried about him, it might not hurt to take him to the vet to be sure, or at...

    Fleece Fleece Bedding Hazards?

    Personally, none of my pigs have ever eaten their fleece bedding, though none of my pigs were/are big chewers. A lot of people also clamp the edges of their fleece with clips against the walls and therefore they really wouldn't be able to bite it very easily. I don't think that you would have to...

    Blog The Adventures of Ludovic

    I had been searching these past few weeks for a male guinea pig that I could adopt to be companions with Kingsley. In my area I found it to be difficult. The pigs on Craigslist were being adopted faster than I could write an e-mail. So finally on Guineapigzone.com I came across a woman who was...

    Any other adoption websites?

    Maybe you could try Craigslist for your area? It's not always the best option, but you may find someone who would be a responsible pet owner for your pig. Good luck!

    nawbie has questions!

    Hey welcome to the forum! I really like the picture :) If your guinea pig did fall recently, please make sure you monitor him well for signs of injury. If he isn't walking or eating, etc, it may be a good idea to take him to a vet for exotics to make sure he is ok. Fleece is really great for...
