    Help My Female Guinea Has Problem But I Don’t Know What To Do.

    My guinea pig has some dark yellow brown stuff around her butt/vagina. And once I found that one part of her hair near to her vagina has is wet and orange, a little bit red

    Shoes Are Yum!

    No idea why, but Sprout has to come over and nibble my shoes whenever the piggies are out for play time. Chutney wasn't interested before, but hey, if Sprout's doing it, then they must be tasty, right?

    Some People Have Guard Dogs...

    I have a guard guinea pig! Sprout has decided that sitting on top of the hidey and wheeking every time I so much as move (even if I’m not in the same room) is the best way to try and get food. At least Chutney begs normally!

    Spelt?

    I have some spelt seed that I originally bought to use as ground cover. I believe it's an older type of wheat. Would it be okay to feed some to my three guinea pigs? I would of course cut it before it went to seed.

    How Long Does Dominance Last?

    Yesterday I put my two boars in a bigger cage that is 2 x 6 grids. They are doing the usual stuff, teeth chattering, rumble-strutting and mounting. How long does this dominance usually last?

    Ferplast Bottle

    Hello. Does anyone have any experience with this water bottle? I recently bought it for my piggies and they are just ignoring it. Did anyone else have the same problem?

    Convincing My Parents For A Guinea Pig.

    Hey! I've wanted two guinea pigs for a really long time now. But, my parents keep on saying no. I've done everything though. I have written a four page essay all about them, why I want one. They keep on saying that they stink and are really hard work. I know they are but I'm really...

    I Need A Plan Quick!

    So, since my cage isn't big enough for 2 piggies, I decided to keep Winnie in a pet store cage for a few days because we are deciding on how and where we are going to build our HUGE C&C guinea pig cage. I need some ideas because obviously, pet store cages are too small but that is the only...

    Trio Of Boars?

    I was thinking today, is a trio of boars a common thing? I know a trio of sows is a thing and they get along but would a trio of boars work out? I currently have 2 boars right now and was thinking (of course when they settle in to their C&C cage and get over their dominant stages) of getting...

    Fleece Bedding Is Better?

    I am thinking about switching to fleece bedding because it seems to fit my standards. I need fleece that I can just wash every day and will not leak through and have a washable absorbent layer. Right now, I currently have store-bought bedding, which everyone knows is a hassle to keep up with so...

    How Did You Even Manage To Do This?

    And don't think that hiding behind Chutney means I can't see you, Sprout. I can, as it happens, you fuzzy black menace!

    Ivermectin - Which One To Buy?

    I wanted to buy Ivermectin for a while now for my guinea pigs. I just got a new one and it looks like she has dry skin and therefore mites probably. I want to buy Ivermectin from Ebay. Can somebody send me a link to what I should look for or which one is recommended?

    Guinea Pig Communication Between Others

    So with my birds (Parakeets) if they hear a parakeet on my phone chirping they will call to it and try and communicate. They will believe a bird is actually there and be interested. With Lily, if I play her happy guinea pig sounds she literally ignores it and walks away disinterested. I’m...
