    So recently one of our neighbors found a guinea pig... on their porch. It's doing fine now but it was pretty skinny when we found it but looks otherwise healthy but I'm starting to believe it may be blind in one eye... I'm getting help from my sister who has been a guinea pig owner for over...

    My one-and-a-half year old female piggy Spike has mange mites. I had her treated with Revolution a while ago but the mites came back and I just had her treated with Ivomectin the other day. (Long story short, I'm very unimpressed with my vet and will be switching to a cavy specialist in my...

    I'm looking to buy the Summer Lodge Double Hutch by Sharples N Grant for my future guinea pigs from Pets at Home. I can't post links yet because of my post count, but if you Google it you should see it :) It's almost exactly 4 ft x 2 ft, and it's 5 ft tall. It has two storeys, so floor space is...

    On the advice of someone at Pet Smart (others there refer to her him as the expert there), I've always given the little ones filtered water. Recently though, the water filter broke, so now until getting a new one, I've resorted to purified water bought from the store. The question I have is...

    Hi again, 2nd question..I've had my 3 piggies for about 4 years now. Is it too late to try to litter train them? I heard you put their food and hay in their litter box because if they eat in there they will pee in there also. Is this true? Isn't that unhealthy for them to eat where they pee?

    Just wanted you all to beware what a member of your boards Secuono has been saying. Secuono has no regard whatsoever for animal rights. Her animals live in appalling conditions, and with little room to move. You will notice if you google the name “Secuono” that her story changes on every single...

I accidently clipped one too short a long time ago and now I'm spooked that i'll do it again...plus they are very squirmy and hard to...

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, so a moderator or admin can move this to the correct place if this post is in the wrong area. We went to the pet store today. Yes, they do carry animals. But we went there to pick up food for my rabbit and guinea pig because they're running...

    I work at a vets office and took my guinea pig to see the doctor yesterday. Her doctor said that she has lice. We gave her an ivormectin injection with a follow up injection in 10 days. Is there anything I can do to help with getting rid of the lice? Her cagemate died a while ago so theres no...
