    Diet Advice on keeping veggies fresh

    Can you buy it in smaller amounts? What kind of packaging is it in? I've found that if it's in a non breathable container and the lettuce is moist it rots faster. I buy heads of lettuce and prep all my veggies into individual meals, and even though I keep it in Tupperware since I dry the lettuce...

    Parasites A question about lice

    Probably lice then! My girls had lice. I put one under a microscope to confirm it! Lol. I used Ivermectin and after a few treatments, no more lice. And don't worry, I believe these type of lice will not infect you.

    Parasites A question about lice

    Shampoo would make mites worse. For lice it would be fine. Mites are microscopic, lice can be seen with your eyes. Your vet will probably give you Revolution for either. Don't let the vet do a skin scrapping, it's a waste of money , painful and usually gives you no answers.

    Parasites A question about lice

    You can treat her topically with Ivermectin or Revolution to fully rid of the lice. I don't think shampoo alone gets rid of them completely.

    Cage Large cage, switching to pure fleece

    I have an all fleece cage. I have small pee pads under each hidey so I can change them out every day or so. I put a brick wrapped in a towel under my waterbottles, not because they leak but because my pigs drain them. I change the towel everyday. Also I use fliptop water bottles and never have a...

    Conditions Hooting one day, nothing the next

    I have one pig who hoots. She's done it for years and it's not an everyday thing. She doesn't have a URI or anything. Her lungs sound normal. We think it's a heart condition. Usually her hooting is set off when I need to clean the cage or if I have hay all over the cage. Generally for her it...

    Cage Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    It's been a while since I've posted cage pictures. I just finished semi remodeling my cage. I replaced the 7yr old coroplast and it used to be 2 stacked cages, but now that I have a herd getting along, I have no need for it anymore! It's a 2x5 on a stand meant for a 2x4, and the stand really...

    General The veggies i feed my guinea pig is it enough?

    As adults they need 1 cup of veggies, each a day. For babies I am not completely sure. Except I know they need more than just lettuce and cilantro. For vitamin C green bell peppers are the best, they have more Vit. C than oranges. The can also have zucchini, yellow squash, carrot, etc. There's a...

    Turtles Turtle Cage! Semi C&C

    The lack of proper lighting to produce vitamin D which disrupts the absorption of Calcium. She was also fed a diet extremely low in Calcium and higher in Phosphorous. High Phosphorous also inhibits the bodies ability to use Calcium. I'm honestly not sure if her shell will ever grow larger, I...

    Scratching My piggies are scratching a lot! is this mites?

    The vet usually can't "confirm" mites, they can just rule out other things. And if it's Lice the treatment is the same so no harm in trying the Ivermectin!

    Hello!

    Nope! Not all animals with red eyes are albino! I have had guinea pigs with red eyes and multicolored fur! They lack the gene for albinism, can't be an albino without that type of mutation. Welcome to the forum! Your pigs are beautiful, I love Gambino's extra toes they make him special! One of...

    @mrcosta94 Give it a try! It was pretty much the best idea for a waterbowl I could come up with! ThePigAlchemist Yeah, I like to think she is lucky to have me! I just couldn't go to that house several times a week and look at her sad face in the small aquarium sitting in the corner of the...

    I got 50mL for like $30. It's the "injectable" and it doesn't come in much smaller bottle. Also it will last forever.

    Turtles Turtle Cage! Semi C&C

    First off I'd like to state that I have been volunteer for a wildlife organization for several years and am absolutely AGAINST keeping wildlife as pets. That being said I do have box turtle, native to Missouri. She belonged to a friend and I convinced my friends mother to let me have her after...

    Skin Problems Ugh, ringworm!

    Anti-fungal shampoo should help. If I recall you do have to repeat the bathing at least two more times 7-10 days after the first bath. I used Nizoral shampoo for my pigs, it's human shampoo that you can buy at grocery stores/walmart. If you bleach everything just make sure you rinse it well, the...
