    New lil Guinea Pig- Help!!! 17th Sep 06 at 5:19 PM
    Hello all.
    Just after some advice, quite urgent really. I've ended up with a little guinea pig. I went to the 2nd hand shops for a wardrobe-after mine caved in when I tried to move it. In the 2nd hand shop was a poor lil guinea pig, in his cage on top of a nacky old twin tub, he/she was out the back in a dark dank storage room. Anyhoo- my friend commented how her boyf wanted 1, so she duly haggled the man down to 40 for pig and 'drobe. She then rang her bloke who does not want a pet , so I 've got him.

    Went and bought some food, shavings and hay for shim, gave it some carot and apple and let him chill. Have cleaned his cage today and I held him on myknee and he is literally crawling with little maggotty type things they are awful.... what can I do!!!! :confused: I cant leave him outside 'cos he lives in a plastic kind of pen/cage- not a hutch, yet. But i've got my little old lady and 2 birds to think about!!
    What will get rid of the awful things?:confused: Does nit shampoo work or is it a trip to vets??:confused: Also, he/she makes a kind of vibrating noise, does this mean its happy?? All help gratefully received- i dont want the poor little thing to suffer, its already had a rough start... thankyou.
    RIP Floyd - 19/04/09. I know i'll see you again my best friend forever.
