    Sick Heavy Breathing, Heavy Shedding

    I've had him since ... October? of last year. He's not an Aby, and sheds more than Frisk, who is an Aby. As for he hooting, I'm positive it wasn't his normal sounds, he's very vocal (grrr) and he only started making this noise on and off but at no set intervals. It really seems to go away...

    Sick Heavy Breathing, Heavy Shedding

    So I couldn't get an appointment for Saturday, but i have one for Tuesday. The thing is I'm wondering if I should still take him. His breathing is now fine (i listened for quite a while, ear held up to his body) and he's wheeking his little heart out at his usual sounds, even running around...

    Sick Heavy Breathing, Heavy Shedding

    I'll see what the vet says, his shedding may be fine and i'm just overreacting. His hair doesn't seem thin at all, but i will definitely keep an eye on it.

    Sick Heavy Breathing, Heavy Shedding

    He gets green leaf lettuce, quite a few leaves, and a slice of green or red pepper a day, he has both kms pellets (an eighth cup) and hay (unlimited) , the hay is bluegrass. His water is purified by osmosis water from walmart. He's active, and other than the noises he makes and how he acts when...

    Sick Heavy Breathing, Heavy Shedding

    The hooting starts up and goes away sometimes, if that's any indicator of what it might be... his breathing doesn't sound good when i got a chance to listen to it anyway, so vet's happening no matter what, i'm just being kind of a busybody at this point.

    Sick Heavy Breathing, Heavy Shedding

    I know they shed a lot but this seemed really excessive.... like a handful of hair. Maybe is hould consider brushing him ... but he didn't seem happy with being held, so i'll see what the vet says on saturday. Thanks for the reply, bpatters, as always.

    Sick Heavy Breathing, Heavy Shedding

    My guinea pig Asriel has been on and off hooting, and when I've picked him up he has been shedding profusely, though with no pattern hair loss of any kind. He's eating normally and drinking normally, but he's just not acting normal. I thought he might have reacted when I stroked a part on his...

    Chewing Coroplast kitchen edge chewer

    Thanks I'll look into that. Is that usually effective? I just imagine him chewing through those as well.

    Chewing Coroplast kitchen edge chewer

    Asriel is driving me insane. He has developed this nasty habit of very loudly chewing on the Coroplast edge of the kitchen I put in for my two boys. Do any of you have any ideas on how I can curb this? Its so loud it wakes me up when I'm sleeping, and he does it almost constantly. He has wood...

    Wood Pellets/Chips New to pellets have some questions

    Worst case, my friend will use the pellets for bedding for his farm and I can go up to Tractor Supply in Burlington to get the pellets they ahve there. hoping these will be okay for now though.

    Wood Pellets/Chips New to pellets have some questions

    I just bought a 40lb bag of pellets from the big r but they look to be made of pine. I can't find any that don't except for small bags at the pet store and I wasn't sure if this was just the nature of them or if it's just my area that I can't find others. I also wondered if I could put uncovered...

    Allergies Allergy test for me: what should they test for?

    Awe... this is so unfortunate... you're in my area, too, I'd take them if I could. unforunately that would probably give my parents an aneurism even if I did have room for a cage that'd hold a trio.
