Hi my mom got my son a skinny pig for christmas and I hnow it had 2 owners before we got it. His name is dexter and he's so sweet, he loves to give my son kisses and he came home yesterday. I think he had seizure or something, he was getting snuggled and he was purring next thing I know he started to shake. Really bad and moving really weird then he was fine again. Now it's the next day he was fine all morning I went to go make myself a coffeee and I found him on his side. I just wanted to know if anyone out there knows what's going on I'm a little sad and scared cause my son already loves him so much already can anyone help me please?

    Do you know how old the skinny pig is? They usually only live 2-3 years so he may just be getting older. If he seems healthy otherwise it may just be his age. It does sound like he's having a seizure from you description though... so if it continues to happen and you are worried you may want to take him to a vet. I don't believe there is anything over the counter you can give him for seizures.

    You can get a skinny pig at petsmart for around 80 dollars, even though they're expensive they are a great investment!:)

I had one of these guinea pigs and his name was Bear, because his hair was so wild! He was the smartest pet I have had. You could say Bear give me a kiss and he would stick his little head out of the cage and kiss you!! If your looking for a loving, cool pet.. you should get one of these! They are so awesome!

    HI, We just bought our first pig! So cute! I keep reading that they need a cage mate? My plan is to give all the attention he needs but I am getting nervous now that maybe we should have bought two. Any suggestions?
  • renee - 2012-12-24
    guinea pigs can be ok without a cage mate provided they spend alot of time with you. They are very social and love attention and interaction.

    All my guinea pigs do is purr, and I have four babies.

    It is perfectly normal.  They get nervous easily when re-homed.  Will settle down quickly!

i have a new skinny pig, and I'm having an issue keeping it warm. I'm thinking of putting it in a fish tank so I can put a heat pad on the bottom, but someone thought it might be too noisy for the little guy. does anyone know if that is true? please help....thanks

    Noisy no. OK you can put the little fella in a fish tank given it's large enough and place paper towel on the bottom (so it doesn't slide). Then put carefresh or some bedding on top of the paper towel. Place a heating pad on low under 1/2 the tank so the little fella can be as warm (or cool off) as he wants. You could also place a heat lamp shining over 1/2 his cage and he could do the same thing.

    you could place a wool sock over the pig and secure with a little duct tape. I did this once cause the piggie had severe derm. I found out that using a little kitten revolution flea med cures dermatitus on guinea pigs. I cut the toe and heal off the sock and cut 2 holes for front feet then slip it on and loosely duct tape the sock so it stays.

    I recently 'rescued' a guinea pig from a pet store. I didn't like her cage with the wire bottom. I have always loved guinea pigs, and had them years ago. Here I go again. Anyway, her name is Lisbeth, and she has long hair. She was sold as an Abby, but alas, the only rosette is on her head, then comes the long hair. Needless to say, lots of brushing and butt checking. She seems happy by herself, but somedays I think maybe she should have a companion. Sandy
