  1. After seeing a video of a guy trying to play with a monkey and then the monkey bite and literally rip a large piece of scalp off the man’s skull in a spit second, this guy is lucky this monkey had some patience.

  2. Poor guy. On the vit c - can this happen if the pig is given bell peppers daily, and the oxbow vit c tablet daily?

  3. 1/8th slice of a red bell pepper or 1/4th or a green one has enough vitamin-c for their daily requirements which is 25mg. Also, I believe the Oxbow cookie has 25mg per cookie as well. So vitamin-c deficiency should not happen to your piggy on this type of daily diet.

  4. I’m surprised the vet didn’t give him an injection of vitamin-c in the event that it’s due to scurvy caused by vitamin-c deficiency. I would recommend ordering a bottle of Childlife Liquid Vitamin-C off of Amazon and start giving him a full 1ml syringe of it everyday and see if he starts moving his legs again in about a week. I would also recommend you get a second opinion but make sure it’s an exotic vet that has experienced with guinea pigs.

  5. Remember to wash and dry it a ton before it can actually wick aka transfer the pee from the top to an absorbent layer that you must use under the fleece. Do not use a detergent that is scented or has fabric softener in it and do not use fabric softener sheets in the dryer either. My detergent of choice is all free and clear.

  6. I say have your friend call your references pretending to be one of the interviewer. You’ll know quickly whose been saying what about you.

  7. Holy sh#t! Was not expecting the ending.

  8. Have your old pigs started doing this? My man is about 6.5 years old and he’s started peeing in his sleep. It’s most noticeable when he cuddles up for his evening pets and ends up peeing on me when he falls asleep. But I’ve also observed that he’s peeing more in his “sleeping area” instead of his favorite toilet corner. He has fleece blankets so he isn’t really getting any pee on him. Is this just expected old man behavior?

  9. High chance it is due to his older age as you start losing/decreasing bodily functions. Just make sure he stays dry down there and you should be good.

  10. How often you wash the pads depends on how big your cage is and how many piggies you have. Even with that said, the more frequent you wash the pads, the less likelihood of your piggies developing urinary tract infections or upper respiratory infections.

  11. Totally normal behaviors as they are trying to establish dominance aka the hierarchy of who’s going to be the boss. Even after this is established they may do this once or twice every month for a whole day or two due to their hormones and once again is totally normal, annoying as hell as the one getting mounted will cry a lot, but totally normal.

  12. This is a big concern because they may not even be interested in them for like forever and then all of a sudden one day decides to eat it, and then ends up with a blockage that kills them.

  13. Just curious as to how much you are paying a month for the insurance and what’s the coverage like?

  14. You’re supposed to create a vacuum seal in the water bottle so that it doesn’t leak. First you fill the water bottle all the way up. Then you tighten the nozzle on it. When doing so you might even hear some air going into the water bottle which is when it’s creating the seal. Even if you don’t hear that sound, squeeze the water bottle a bit so that it will squirt out some water but in return when you let go it will start sucking in some air which is now creating a vacuum seal. Put the water bottle into the cage and it will probably leak for a few seconds but should stop eventually. This technique wouldn’t work on a glass water bottle or a plastic one that is too stiff. I personally use the You and Me water bottle from Petco. I use 10 of them at a time and none of them leaks when I do the vacuum seal:

  15. Not even close. I mean just look at that “ingredient” list.

  16. I’m so sorry this is literally two years later, but are you sure it’s 0.25? Or is it maybe 0.025? If 1000mg is in 1ml? I don’t know and I want to make sure I give my guinea pig the right amount

  17. What vitamin-c products are you asking about? Because the Oasis Pure Liquid Vitamin-C, the one that is a small 2oz bottle with a guinea pig on the front, the label states that 8 drops is 25mg of vitamin-c which I measured out to be .25ml or 1/4th of a 1ml syringe. You can post a picture or send me a message with more info as you definitely do not want to overdose on vitamin-c or even give a product that has additional ingredients in it that could be harmful to your piggies.

  18. You apparently got the context wrong as he’s actually telling the guy sitting next to him that the other guy was trying to get his attention. He wasn’t trying to shake his hand.

  19. People are always posting that they think their guinea pig is fat. But they are supposed to be shaped and you should not be able to feel their ribs.

  20. Exactly this. I had two sisters, one was around 900g and another that was a massive 1400g. Both ate the same thing and both were healthy. So ultimately there’s really no set weight they should be at because all piggies are different. Also, realistically I don’t believe any piggy should be on a diet as any extra weight/mass can only help them when they become ill and start losing weight because of if. Having extra mass will help cushion with some of the inevitable weight loss that comes with illness.

  21. This video gave me major anxiety due to the fact that I saw a video of this same event where a guy made it to one end but right as he made it, his harness broke off.

  22. Aside from your elected Annual or Vacation/Sick Leave hours, sign up for the Voluntary Personal Leave Program (VPLP) so that you can have an additional 8 or 16 hours (dependent on the Bargaining Unit you’re in) of extra leave time each month in exchange for 5% or 10% of your salary that you can use for time off when you need or want to.

  23. That looks like Chipotle. If they don’t drain the beans from the spoon/ladle before they put it into your bowl, then after some time it will leak out from under the bowl and this is probably the aftermath of it. How I know is that this has happened to me before and now I always tell them to drain the beans before putting it into the bowl.

  24. Most will ghost you. The only way to know if you’re not selected is by emailing/calling in to inquire.

  25. You’re supposed to create a vacuum seal in the water bottle so that it doesn’t leak. First you fill the water bottle all the way up. Then you tighten the nozzle on it. When doing so you might even hear some air going into the water bottle which is when it’s creating the seal.

  26. I’m sure you can register it as “Non-op” so that it’s registered to you but you don’t have to buy insurance or pay yearly renewal fees as long as it continues to stay on non-op.

  27. The only thing she needs is an unlimited amount of hay. Softer hay is perfectly fine as it’s not actually the cut of the hay or how soft it is but rather the silica content of the hay that keeps molars grinded down. Also, you really shouldn’t worry about this being an issue since the last time it was an issue was over two years ago. Honestly, she’s most likely to pass away from old age related illness rather than overgrown molars which you will be able to tell if it happens aka not showing interest in food then confirmed with a vet visit.

  28. 6 weeks as there has been report of females getting pregnant when introduced to a freshly neutered male at the 5 weeks mark. So definitely wait until the 6 weeks mark as you don’t want to endanger the lives of your two females by accidentally getting them pregnant (assuming they’re over 1 year old).
