Congratulations on getting the site up Sef and thanks to Lynx for allowing it! It is a great place to get all kinds of GP stuff and the proceeds certainly do a lot of good.

I have always been very impressed with Sef's organization and the layout, look, and utility of the site. She has some great products on there. I also adore the pics of her little pig.

I know she shares the modest amount the site brings in with local rescues. And has also decided to contribute a fixed amount monthly to Guinea Lynx. I hope proceeds will also help her defray some of her own guinea pigs' medical costs.

It is so handy to have everything in one place! I hope more people discover your cool site, Sef!

You might want to feature a nifty product maybe once a week here, too. I am partial to that cocoanut oil/cream. Nice to know it's edible :-)

By the way, her health/medical page is fabulous!

I highly recommend to each and every person to get a curved tip syringe. When you need it and don't have it, it is a real shame. Curved tip syringes are wonderful for flushing abscesses and bites.

Does she have Chew Guard? ;-)

That is a great little flushing syringe - invaluable when abscesses strike!

No, no Chew Guard. It's a prescription veterinary product, I think.

I originally wanted to include Chew Guard, but it wasn't available through any of the Amazon.com sellers.

After double-checking, I can offer it through Lambert--my source for Critical Care and Ivermectin. I have added it here.

Thanks!

Umm, the coconut oil tastes terrible but is sure great on the skin. : )

Cool! I am surprised at the low cost. The description makes me think they have developed a new product. Mine is not tacky and essentially is hot (as in hot-pepper hot), not yucky.

Hmmm. I might order some (or at least contact Lambert tomorrow) and see what the ingredients are. Do you still have the bottle, Lynx?

Unfortunately I do. You might be able to find out more doing a search. I sometimes turn up ingredients going to the drug company website or from sellers using a few handy search terms (side effects is one I like).

I'll have to look more closely at mine to see what is in it. Maybe I can take a pic of the ingredients for you to read.

This new stuff might still work but yucky might not work as well for guinea pigs though (it's designed for other pets). My guess is what I have can cause irritation to humans if it gets in their eyes and you would have to protect the eyes of the animal too.

Okay. I contacted Summit Hill Labs today about this product. I was told by the rep that the formula of Chew Guard has not changed, but the size of the droplets has been increased slightly -- she said there were complaints that the original product produced too fine a mist. ?

I emailed my contact at Lambert Vet also, to see if he could send me the actual list of ingredients. The rep at Summit Hills didn't seem to have it available.

In the meantime, I'm going to tak ethe product off TLPM until I know for sure that it's the same thing.

Thanks!

That makes some sense. The fine mist can float into airways and eyes. This would stick better.

I am looking at my bottle. The words are small and hard for me to read. Ingredient list says:

Synthetic and Vegetable Flavors 1.2% Inert ingredients 98.8%

I will try to take a pic of the words tomorrow and post it for you to read. Too dark now.

Okay, my contact at Lambert wrote back yesterday afternoon, with the following information from Nelson Labs:

The ingredients on Chew Guard have not changed in 30 years; however, there was been a slight change in a ratio of the ingredients. When asked for a list of the ingredients, the manufacturer stated that they do not give it out "because they are just food flavors."

The change in ingredient ratios has made the product stickier. This was in response to complaints that the fine mist was spraying customers in the face during use.

Lynx, will GL continue to list Chew Guard on the Supplies page?

I forgot to give my review of the water bottle brushes I bought from Revival. After using them many times now I've decided they are "ok", at best.

The handle on the main brush could be a little stiffer. The little brush for the spouts could be a little more narrow and bend slightly more easily.

That said, it's better than nothing!

Sef, yes, I will likely continue to list it. Sounds like they have made it safer to spray. I just wondered if it was an entirely different product after a few years. Hopefully it would help.

Slave2 -- thanks for the review. I won't add them to TLPM, then. I'm pretty sure I owned that same set myself awhile back, and the brushes eventually rusted. Best bottle brush I've found so far, has actually been one that I got at my local grocery store.

Lynx -- sounds good. I'll go ahead and add Chew Guard back to the site this weekend.

TLPM News

Just wanted to mention that This Little Piggie Marketplace is now partnering with Drs. Fosters & Smith to offer the full line of Oxbow products. I'm also working out details to offer several American Pet Diner products.

Be sure to sign the new TLPM Guestbook when you stop in! Feedback and testimonials are greatly appreciated. :}

Sounds great! I really appreciate the time you've taken to put this together. The products you have make so much sense and it is so handy to have them all in one place.

I hope people take a good look around. They might realize they are missing something vital!

By the way, have you thought of "starring" certain products as essentials? Maybe some could be starred as daily products, others starred as products handy for medical care (when needed).
