Rodents - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

How old was she? Going past her due date by a week may not have been the cause (I had a female that delivered two weeks late!), but without a veterinarian doing a post-mortem exam, there's really no way to know. Guinea pigs are very good at hiding health problems until they are critical, so there's a possibility she could have developed ketosis without showing it.

It's better to use shampoos which are designed specifically for guinea pigs. After all, human shampoos differ and differ significantly and that's why it's quite hard to give a versatile answer. The same goes for food. It's better to use well-designed feed. Yeap, some products like bananas can be given to your guinea pigs but there are some aspects you should pay your attention to.

Guinea pig or the hamster.

Turtles bite and smell. Cockroaches are just horrible, especially if they escape, breed and infest your house.

no problem except you will have lots of baby hamsters fairly quickly.

No, warm him up a bit inside your clothing or put him a warm hot water bottle. Give him water and glucose.

They can be very friendly if raised from babies. They need to be caged at night or they will cause you grief.

This is probably way too late, but...

It will take some effort on your part. You can buy a safe (non-poison) rodent repellent on Amazon. That's only part of the solution, though: you need to make sure that there are no openings to the outside that a mouse could get through (an adult mouse can squeeze through a hole a bit smaller than a dime). If you live in an older home, it may have roof ventilation that is open to the outside; mice can climb very well, so to open vents would need be covered with screen.

You can also get live traps - bait them with some peanut butter or sunflower seeds, and leave them before you go to bed where you see there has been activity (gnawed objects or droppings). The next morning, take the traps to a park or meadow/woods and let the little intruders go. Try and relocate them a good distance from your house, or they'll find their way back. IMPORTANT! Don't keep a mouse in a live trap any longer than you need to 8-10 hours max) or the stress will kill them.

Did you ever hear the phases "AGE DOESN'T MATTER WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE"? Focus in whether its serious or playing only?

No, Trump is a liar and will soon be impeached. He should actually be shot for being a traitor to our country with Russia when Obama was still president.

With proper care, a guinea pig can live six to eight years. Google "guinea lynx" for one of the best sources of health and care info.

You can put a piece of clear plexiglass to divide the cage in two. They can still see each other but with no shinanagans

Mostly because of your attitude I would say!!!

Cover the cage at nite so it is dark inside and then the hammie should sleep also.

Mice will survive just fine on their own outdoors.
