The guinea pig song

This is actually kinda old, Joe Pasquale sang it back in ’05. Of course, I don’t actually know who Joe Pasquale is;… but anyway. I haven’t actually watched it the whole way through, just flicked through, ‘cos the sound is seriously rubbish on this computer. So when he smiles, he’s just a grinny pig,And when he drives, then he’s a mini pig,And when he smokes, he’s a naughty nicotiny pig, nicotiny pig,that’s that guinea pig of ours. 

When he says don’t, he’s strict discipliny pig,And when he eats chinese, these he’s a mandariny pig,When he plays strings, then he’s a Russian violiny pig, violiny pig,that’s that guinea pig of ours. When he throws, then he’s a jolly javeliny pig,Then he gets on his toes, and does his watch me spin-ney pig,And when he slows, he’s been a one too many guinea pig,that guzzling guinea pig of ours. When he slims, he becomes quite a skinny pig,Instead of sugar in his tea, he would rather sachariny pig,Then he bakes a chocolate cake, puts on a very pretty pinny pig, pretty. When he goes out, he’s not an in-ny pig,When he turns over a new leaf, then he’s a new beginney pig,And when he dies, he’ll be a has Beeny pig, I will put him in the binny pig,.

Guinea Pig Exercise

Guinea Pigs like all living animals need plenty of exercise. When you let them run around on the floor you will see how much they really enjoy a good run. Kornage pop corns the most when he is on the floor with the girls. If you let your Guinea Pigs run around freely in doors you MUST make sure you block off all cables. Millie Nawty Moozer has chomped her way through lots of my cables. 

If you do put your Guinea Pig on the floor and they have had newspaper in their cage, try putting some down on the floor. Some Guinea Pigs like to back up in to something when they go to loo but this is not the case with all, as only Nutmeg shows this behaviour. I keep my Cavies in the living room and they run on the floor, I have found they actually go back in to their cage to pee. I have read online that Guinea Pigs do not climb or jump. This is true to 3 of my pigs but Millie can jump up four courses of brickwork. 

So just be careful when you let your Guinea Pigs get exercise. I have found when the Guinea Pigs are in the run on the grass they do not run around as much as they do when I have them on the patio.

Guinea Lynx :: Common Mistakes

Even some exotic vets only treat guinea pigs with Baytril. In guinea pigs a heart condition may appear in the form of repeated URIs that do not respond to antibiotics. In severe cases diuretics, bronchodilators, or even oxygen may be required to save the guinea pig. Not giving intensive postoperative care to guinea pigs who have had a stone removed. Waiting even 24 hours can spell disaster for a guinea pigs GI tract. 

Neglecting to hydrate the pig, as well as hand feed. Treating with sprays, dips, or shampoos, instead of ivermectin or other Avermectin compounds – the only known medications to properly treat guinea pig mites. Not treating all pigs in the household, regardless of contact. Teeth problems in guinea pigs almost always originate with the molars. Especially with Resco nail trimmers, a common veterinary tool but one that can do significant damage to guinea pig teeth. 

Not thinking teeth first! Often a guinea pig will waste away while even a good exotics vet looks for other causes. No pain medication, in which case the guinea pig may stop eating from pain.
