    WEIGHING GUINEA PIGS

    Hi I got baby scales from a friend today and weighed my one year old male guinea pigs for the first time. Scooby weighs 1,600g and Scrappy weighs 1,500g are they normal weights as I read that they should be no more than 1,200g? Thanks :)

    So, over the last few days I have begun the journey of trying to (wild) rodent proof my third floor apartment. I found a hole in the wall by the cage which was thankfully plugged immediately with steel wool. I have also continued to keep all foods human and pigs in air tight bags or containers...

    Is this a spur or something else?

    we have spotted this on my Guinea pig’s foot. We originally thought it was a spur however it now appears to have spread in a line across the bottom of the foot. It looks like there may be another one starting on her other foot. ( yet very slightly, so not pictured ) .She does enjoy jumping up...

    Petco Experience

    On May 4th I bought a baby male guinea pig from Petco. Which ended up being a mistake. I fell in love with him and named him Jelly (my other one is named Peanut-butter), he was the only one I’m his cage, and he looked so sad, I thought he could help my older guinea pig who just went through the...

    Cake for Muffin?

    I would like to make a cake for Muffin's 3rd birthday, I've seen a lot of recipes online, and I really like the ones where you actually make the cake instead of just making a pile of vegetable's. The problem is I'm not sure which recipes are actually safe for Muffin or not. Should I make one...

    My 5 year old guinea pig was put to sleep ..

    In June I found out my guinea pig Mickey had a tumor not knowing if it was possibly a cyst, I went to the vet and sadly told me that it was a tumor and there was no form of removing it without it growing back, this left me with knowing she was either going to live until she got to the point it...

    Ringworm

    Hi all, I have been thinking about getting some Piggies for a while now. I have done months worth of research on them and their care, but the one thing that is holding me back from getting some piggies is the fear of them coming out in ringworm. I have asked so many different people about it...

    My Guinea Pig Won't Keep Down Food.

    Hai, I have a guinea pig named Storm, and I guess she's always been a picky eater. I remember when I first got her (Will be a year on Dec. 10th) and I wasn't educated enough. We bought her the food with the colored shapes, and she'd only eat those, not the brown pellets. So, I changed up her...
