    Cleaning bags for washing fleece?

    Maybe something to do with your settings? I know american washing machines are usually diferent from what i have here. I find that very strange, in 15 years of washing i never had remains of soap in my laundry and i even wash heavy rugs

    Cleaning bags for washing fleece?

    Inside the bag and on the fleece :p I just shake the fleece, I dont even bother trying too hard to get the hairs out. After washing I line dry it if it's windy (the wind helps remove the leftover hairs) or put it in the dryer and the hairs will get caught in the filter.

    Cleaning bags for washing fleece?

    The pillowcase works great for me. Can't say about the Uhaul because we don't have that in my country

    Fleece How to get the hair off the fleece?

    I just put the fleece inside an old pillowcase and tie a knot. When the fleece is outside in the line drying the wind ends up removing some of the hairs. I don't even try to remove them, it's just hair anyway :P

    Nails/Nail Trimming Sharp but Short?

    When my piggie was around that age her nails were also very sharp but after a few months they became naturally less sharp and grew enough so i could trim the tips.

    Supplements How to give vitamin C to a piggie that doesn't eat her veggies

    So, faster heart rythym, rumbling, running aimlessly against objects and throwing herself from something she doesn't know the heigh and scratching me desperately trying do get back into the cage and never coming out of her pigloo unless she cant see me are perfectly natural behaviours?

    Supplements How to give vitamin C to a piggie that doesn't eat her veggies

    Sure, i can take control and scare my perfectly healthy pig everyday and all the interaction I'll have with her will be limited to fear for her. Or i can try to find other options that will also work and i wont have a pet that her only feeling towards me is fear

    Supplements How to give vitamin C to a piggie that doesn't eat her veggies

    I was looking into other options. Like i said in my first post i was doing that but she panics, afterwards she hides and runs away even more when she sees me.

    Supplements How to give vitamin C to a piggie that doesn't eat her veggies

    Thanks for your replies. Nature's Own Vitamin Chewables doesn't exist here and on amazon there's only the multi vitamin, so i guess i can't try those. I used to put some drops of the vitamin in her tomatoes (favorite food) but maybe i put too much cause in those days she woudnt eat them. The...

    Supplements How to give vitamin C to a piggie that doesn't eat her veggies

    Hi there. So, my 6 months female piggie doesn't like the veggies that are rich in vitamin C. She eats lettuce, 2 cherry tomatoes, baby carrots and 2 cucumber slices daily plus her pellets and hay. I've tried introducing more veggies with the sprinkling method but it only made her not eat her...

    Pigsitting Check-list for my pigsitter (need sugestions)

    Oh thanks. I didn't include that one cause it's pretty obvious to me but since it may not be the same for everyone I'll add it to the list. I think this covers pretty much the most common issues.

    Not to mention she is the one putting the guinea pigs in a situation where she "has" to choose who to put first... :S

    Vet 10 week old gaining 100g in one week?

    Maybe you're giving better quality food than she was getting before coming to you? I think 200grams is kinda low for 7 weeks but 400 seems normal for 10 so maybe she's compensating? :P

    Fleece how to get urine smell out of fleece

    I just use bleach inside the machine cilinder and regular laundry detergent in the drawer and wash it at 40ºC. Not even the pee pads (that get soaked in urine) have any smell
