  1. Chinchilla Discussion
    I purchased some alfalfa and timothy hay cubes and was wondering if these are as good as just regular hay. The hay I have for Optimus now, he throws everywhere and only likes certain parts of the hay. Can I only give him these cubes now or should I give him both? My mazuri and tons of toys...
  2. Chinchilla Discussion
    I was in Petco today and noticed that they sell liquid vitamins for chinchillas. I know there's a lot of things sold in pet stores that say they're safe for chinchillas, but really aren't. Should I give my 5 month old chin vitamins?
  3. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    Also links to previous discussions would be great. I would like to make my own hamster food, and I'm looking for a list of suitable items to put in it. I will have lab blocks and timothy/alfalfa hay pellets, as well as things you can get at bulk food stores, like seeds, oats, etc. But need...
  4. Rabbit Discussion
    I just noticed a different flower type head in the new bale of timothy hay I got. I am sure it must be alfalfa mixed in with it. Is this going to be a really bad thing if I keep feeding them this mixture? I don't want to waste it. What if our last bale (which lasted a year) was also mixed...

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and new to degus as well. My family and I aquired two young males (brothers) about 11 days ago.

  8. Rabbit Discussion
    Thanks for the tips some of you left me for the litter box training. I used a different litter and i also put alfalfa hay in her litter box and she is getting the hang of things. She has as been using her litter box way better. I got her a leash and took her on a walk today it was her first day...
  9. Degu Discussion
    I went out shopping for more toys today for my little goo girls and when I did, my son pointed out the log toy that we have in our cage and said, "Look, Mom! It says it has pine shavings in it!" I could have died. Again, my stupidity rises from not reading up BEFORE purchasing a new pet. When I...
  10. Guinea Pig Discussion
    Hey Everyone, I'm considering adopting / buying (preferably adopting) two guinea pigs. It depends on whether the shelter in my area has guinea pigs or not.. they only really advertise for cats and dogs. This would be the second time for me, I've had 2 in the past, one who lived for 8 years and...
  11. Degu Discussion
    ...and my mom and I saw one of those SunSeed flower garden salad things for my goos. On the package it says "FOR RABBITS, GUINEA PIGS, CHINCHILLAS & DEGUS" The ingredients in it is Timothy Hay, Dehydrated Parsley Stems, Alfalfa Hay, Pine Cones, Calendula Marigolds, and Rose petals. When I saw...
  12. Degu Discussion
    :degu: :degu: I just can't believe it. I didn't see what all the fuss was with all the "degu" talk and today I was in the pet store buying food for my little frogs when I saw these little adorable critters! They reminded me of little squirrels without the fluffy tails. My heart was instantly...
  13. Degu Discussion
    There are loads of different kinds of hay available at my PetSmart here. Obviously, Timothy Hay is a staple, and I also avoid Alfalfa Hay. But how about other kinds of hay? For example, Brome Hay, Orchard Grass, Oat Hay or Bermuda Grass? I also see at PetSmart Sunaturals brand. They have a...
  14. Rabbit Discussion
    I feel it imperative that I educate myself on the living things in my home, so I am going to ask some questions. 1. What pellet food is good? which is bad? 2. I am currently feeding a pellet food in addition to Timothy hay, romaine, spinach, kale and also giving them a carrot and some apple...

    Are guinea pigs big chewers? Because Apolla rarely chews anything.I mean,I thought piggies chewed alot like rats and other rodents! :confused: Her teeth are fine though. Should I be concerned she is not a big chewer?
  16. Guinea Pig Discussion
    For a while I had only one guinea pig, Daphne. She was practically litter box trained, and very neat with her droppings and pee. I just got 2 more girls, and they are teeny tiny babies. But their poop is often messy, wet, and their pee is all over. I found some pee that looks brown, and I...

    :confetti: I just got a new bunny! He is a male Mini Rex named Thumper and he is soooo cute! He's about 18 weeks old (considering that I got him on July 16 when he was 8 weeks old). I'll have pics at the bottom! I was doing research on what to feed him and there are way to many websites! I...
  20. Degu Discussion
    I'm having some problems with my Degus, but I'm not sure what to do. D: I have two, both are 1-2 years old. Jasper was my first, and I'm fairly certain he's male, but after getting my second Degu, it's hard to be sure. It goes like this. Jasper is my baby, and he's very sweet. But when my...
