    Parasites Intestinal Parasites.

    I have realized that due to the rarity and severity, it is very difficult to find Intestinal parasite information as well as treatment when it comes to cavies. Even reputable guinea pig medical records had very little information on the subject, causing me to dig deeper. I made a short list...

    Dogs/Puppies Puppy pictures.

    So, I recently got a puppy (either that or she's a baby ewok). Her name is Possum, and yes, there is a story behind her odd name. She loves heights. You can't step out of the room for a minute without her scaling the walls (that might be a slight exaggeration). I once left the room for a...

    Goodbye, at least for now.

    After spending a year on the forum, I've met some wonderful people. This forum has allowed me to give the absolute best life possible to my three pigs. I've found there is no purpose for me to stay here anymore, I posses all the knowledge I need and have found that most of the members I have...

    Australia Mold spots on oaten hay.

    I picked up two bags of oaten hay recently, when I got home I checked the bags to find both were disgusting and infested with black spots. And of course, this happened on Christmas eve so I had no hay on Christmas, (Luckily I just finished growing three trays of wheatgrass). So, I went back to...

    Neutering/Spaying Infected Spay Wound *Slightly Graphic*.

    Recently, Meeka was spayed (Due to having Ovarian Cysts). For the first seven days after the spay, it was healing well. The wound site was clean and untouched. Tonight I checked the wound, it seems Meeka has started itching and picking at the stitches, it looks infected and a white cheese-like...

    Career as an exotics vet.

    So, lately at my school, there has been lots of talk about our future jobs and career paths. It really got me thinking, I know I want to be an exotics vet (And have ever since I can remember), but how exactly am I going to get there? I know there are a few vet techs/veterinarians/people who know...

    Photos Happy Birthday Meeka!

    Today, my big chubby Meeka turns 2! Since her last birthday was spent in a neglectful home, we made this one extra special. For the occasion, I sewed her some cuddle cups and snuggle sacks (I'm a horrible sewer, I broke the sewing machine twice :s). She's also getting her absolute favorite for...

    Does anyone have mice? (: I got a mouse today, he is a long-haired black and white texel. He is the sweetest little thing. Strangely, he loves human interaction, he will happily crawl onto my hand for snuggle time. Pictures (:

    URI/Upper Respiratory Infection Whooping Cough and Guinea Pigs.

    My sister has recently been diagnosed with whooping cough. I know that whooping cough is caused by the bacillus Bordetella Pertussis, which is linked to kennel cough. Bordetella bronchisetica (The most common cause of Upper Respiratory Infections in cavies) is closely related to Bortetella...

    What breed? Osteodystrophy and Satin pigs.

    So as some of you may know, I adopted a beautiful self-black pig about a month ago named Meeka. She has all the traits of a satin (She has beautiful soft fur with a shine that shows up on camera) but it can be hard to tell whether a self-black pig is satin or not. With satins having higher...

    Behavior Lazy Piggies.

    So lately, Mocha and Moo have been very lazy, they just laze in their fleece forest most of the time. I clean and re-do their cage every three days, I move and change around the hideys, but they adventure around for about five minutes and go into a hidey house and sleep. I just hate the fact...

    Okay, so it starts off like this. Yesterday, I posted a picture of me and one of my pigs on Facebook, about a day later a girl who is in the same Math class as me messaged me saying she thought my pigs were cute, and that she also had a pig (She only had one pig). After talking and exchanging...

    I got some new fleece and toys for the piggies and re-did their cage. I tried to do a strawberry theme with the cage (The hay-bag has a strawberry pattern and they have a little strawberry house, they also have red fleece). I was wondering, is there any way I can improve my cage? Or anything I...
