  1. These babies are not starter pets..they require knowledgeable care.. and its abominable that they are sold in pet stores to anyone…
    Ive never had one but i am mesmerized by your channel….bless their hearts…

  2. It's so sad that people surrender their Guinea pigs so quickly. Under certain circumstances I understand, but I go out of my way to help if my pets are sick. I couldn't imagine just giving them up…
    But like I said I understand, this is just me personally.

  3. On the topic of the abscess it appears they get thick like rabbit abscesses (although theirs are more toothpaste consistency). Since it's quite similar I wonder would bicillin work on guinea pigs. Here at Jeffers pet store it's called combi pen 48 it's 150k units each of two specific types of penicillin which is a long acting penicillin. There is a study done on rabbits showing a lot of progress though it takes much time of shots every other day. Rabbits that vets use to just flush and scrape the skin inside where the abscess were (sometimes removing eyes etc if it was the abscesses in the bones from that one issue that's escaping me at the moment). This allowed them to heal without having to remove parts potentially and even potentially without flushing. Just curious if that would also work on guinea pigs. They are different but in some ways quite similar so wondering if that would make a difference. It might be worth asking a vet if there are any studies on guinea pigs for it. It's quite easy to store and get because it's marketed for cattle. The dosage for rabbits is super small which I imagine would be very small for guinea pigs too of course. Anyway if you have any thoughts on it please let me know.

  4. I learn so much from watching these shows. I have 3 girl piggies now and they get their nails trimmed etc. and they don't mind. I was so scared the first time. But I built up my nerve and set up my table, Q-tips and all. They acted like they were at the salon waiting for me to get-er-done. lol. Saskia, you are beautiful inside and out. we are lucky to have you looking out for the wee ones and encouraging the rest of us to do the same.

  5. My Piggy, Romeo is SO like Pablo. He bites any chance he gets it cam be a bit frustrating at times cause i just want to hold him nicely and cuddle/rub him but i have to be super on guard so he's not as much fun as I was hoping he would be lol

  6. Love this! I wish we could have brought home a friend for our piggy but she didn’t like any of the 4 we tried to pair her with there😢 but thank you LA rescue for the Midwest cage❤️ our girl is so happy!

  7. I got Two guinea pigs I love them I glad you are doing this so y'all help me to look after them if I have any questions I'll ask are you have any ideas where to get stuff I'll be glad to get to know thanks to you I also wish the stores that sell like guinea pigs tell them how much work it's involved and how to look after better and then try to sell them so you know all they care about is money I know it's a lot of work but I'm willing to do it thank you for your help

  8. Hi Saskia OMG I really love your passion and love for these little babies. But I'm in South Africa I don't know where to get that specific vitamin c you use, is there a another alternative besides the bell peppers, that we have lots here and I give them to my babies and and a whole bunch of other veggies hay and pellets. Thank you lots of love Nancy Kader 💖💖💖

  9. I love watching Scotty and Saskia’s videos. My daughter has been asking for a guinea pig for a few years but I don’t think we will get one. They seem to be so Prone to illness it seems every video is about a major health or behavioral issue. I still keep watching because guinea pigs are so cute and entertaining and Scotty and saskia are so loveable. I love their devotion and generosity.

  10. Hi,Saskia!! I need some help info for my young guniea pig, please. For one, he's not eating nor drinking. I've noticed that this all started once he and another guniea I have, had their altercations but this one that's not feeling well named Calica, is the one who's been humping on the other guniea named Taffy which is a male guniea pig as well. They are bk to getting along but Calica I noticed seemed to be uncomfortable laying in the log so now I seperated him from another cage with hay, nibbets n water but he's not eating nor drinking. Do he hv any bite marks or been bleeding? No. He seems to be breathing heavily. He walks around a bit but seems to be comfortable in one spot. I try giving him his food in a syringe but dnt seem pleased about it. Help me please!
