Lily Momma – last adopted guinea pig

My 8 year old guinea pig Chai had just died January 2015, and the next day Mu-Xi was all alone. Mu-Xi had been a very shy guinea pig. I originally got her for a Skinny I had, after her buddy passed away, but when Mu-Xi met Skeeter, she ran away screaming. She would scream any […]

The bloat killed her

I was very wrong – My sick guinea pig

When you feel that you are well established, there would be no more surprises. I must still be a layman because my guinea pig has a severe case of bloat. She’s not in G.I. Stasis, and yet her bloat is so severe that they took 3 views on the x-rays just to make sure her […]

Stay calm – It’s just a sick guinea pig

Over the last week, I have been having trouble getting Lily to take her usual treats from me. She kept asking for snacks, and then telling me it wasn’t a snack, and walking off. Alright. Maybe it’s a spell with her sniffer? Turns out, not entirely, and when I was cleaning the pig pen on […]

Lily Momma has so much energy after healing from her full spay

This guinea pig is running my life! Several times a day, she’ll see me walk through the dining room, and she just starts accosting me. Then whatever she’s dreaming about for snacks sounds great to her daughter, Murphy, and she joins in as well. Lily has been hopping in and out of the hay box […]

My guinea pig came back from the vet

Lily Momma is back home, and when she heard her guinea pig, she came right out of her hidey sack and started to eat hay. I may not have to hand feed her. I gave her the meds this evening, but forgot to weigh her. I will get right on that in the morning. It’s […]

I already have April’s first update planned

BECAUSE I HATE BEING RIGHT Lily does need a full spay. Vet confirmed. We went over options, had 1 I hadn’t had recommended to me in the past: THEY HAVE AN IMPLANT We discussed Lupron, which is still $100 per injection and not a hundred percent effective. An implant, which is more long-lasting than the […]

We’re going to the vet again

Lily’s appointment is on Wednesday in Virginia. She’s my 4(ish) year old guinea pig that gave birth to a bunch of pups a few years ago. She’s never been to the doctor since she moved in with me, and I found out this weekend that she’d chewed the hair off her lower side. This is […]
