Chai update

On the 11th of December, Chai was 786 grams. Today she’s 764 grams. For the last 4-5 days, Mu-Xi has been humping her in dominance, as with guinea pigs the stronger ones pick on the weaker ones. I’m not sure what to think. I will keep feeding her with the 15mL per day and try […]

Slow going

I’ve been feeding Chai about 15mL of Recovery Plus daily to try to bump her weight back up for the last few days, but it’s only taken her from 795 grams to 800 grams. We’re not out of the woods. I’m going to try to get her to do it at least twice a day. […]

Records

Chai is 813 grams today. I need to consider supplementing her food and see if she’ll eat any Critical Care or Recovery formula.

Took care of the old lady

Chai was out today and got her nails clipped and her weight taken. She’s doing well at 903 grams even though she feels a little light… she’s mainly just soft. I haven’t done anything with Mu-Xi since she’s more difficult to catch, I’ll do her at a later time. I can’t believe Chai’s going to […]

Mu-Xi mu

She’s being a butt. I weighed her now at 974 and offered her tube food outside of the cage, and she refused, assuming trex vision and that I wouldn’t really see her if she wasn’t moving. I offered the tube food to Chai over in the pen by a heaping spoonful and she accepted. I […]

two days later

And my Mu Mux is at 960 grams. She is steadily going downhill. Her health seems otherwise fine but I need to start feeding her supplement tube food and just keep weighing. She might need a vet visit shortly. It’s likely Chai’s fault. At seven, we’ve learned she’s been using vampire tactics on all the […]

weight loss

Mu-Xi is at 981 grams Chai is at 860 grams Mu is dropping a little while Chai is gaining. I FREAKING TOLD YOU SHE WAS A VAMPIRE! (ok maybe not you but it’s the running gag here at home)

up and down

Chai’s weight keeps swaying one way or the other. She was up around 850something or 870something and then now today she’s 838 grams while I’m cleaning their pen. More tube food.

Things have been so busy with Honey

around here in the last few months that I haven’t kept a good running track of the rest of my kids. I thought that Chai weighed around 920 last but I can’t find a record of it on here. I know that in April she was 966 grams but today I weighed her in and […]

Another change in dynamic

I’m suddenly a hands-off piggie parent. My guinea pig,Honey, has been on medication since September and just recently passed on towards the Rainbow Bridge. That leaves two: Chai and Mu-Xi. Chai has never been a problematic guinea pig but she used to be called The Militia, always being able to evade me when I tried […]
