Just wanted to officially announce the Grand Opening of "This Little Piggie Marketplace," an online shop designed to offer guinea pig essentials through Amazon.com. Proceeds will go towards guinea pig care, fostering and vet bills, with a percentage being donated to the Guinea Lynx website.

Most of the work on TLPM is complete, but I'll be adding to the product list as new items become available (and hopefully that will soon include Ivermectin). I'll be updating this thread periodically to keep you abreast of updates.

Thanks again to all of you who contributed ideas and feedback on the site! I really appreciate the interest, and hope you enjoy shopping at --

What a terrific resource! Thanks so much for doing this. I'm sure scores of piggies and their slaves will benefit from this site.

Lynx, is there some way this could be made a sticky?

I know how much you hate stickies, but it would be great if this thread could remain visible to everyone, or added to a 'resource' thread or some such.

This is a great site, with appropriate care items all available in one place. Maybe add it to the "supplies -- see also UK link" thread?

You're so right about my hating stickies. Every once and a while I go through and rip a few out.

Could you add it to the "Supplies" sticky? It wouldn't become an additional sticky, but it would remain visible (or clickable).

There's so much good stuff in one place here that I hate to see it sink. A great deal of it would be great one-stop shopping for newbies.

Regardless of what you order, or from how many suppliers, it goes on one Amazon order.

I think it might be lost on the supplies sticky but she could post there if she wanted to.

Instead, I added a link on my supplies page since many items would be quite handy for medical care.

By the way, sef1268, you did a great job on that site! Good selections.

That's fantastic! This is a wonderful resource that I will give to all my adopters to make it easy for them to find all the things they need.

Good job!

Thanks again for the positive feedback! My husband is very glad that the site is finally up and running, too, as uploading and testing on AOL dial-up service made me a tad cranky these past few weeks.

No, I'm not planning to do food. I do list Kleenmama on the Resource page, though. It also looks like I'll be able to offer Oxbow Critical Care, which will be exciting. I'm still working on that.

I've seen those colorful bandages before, but I'm not sure what their use is. Amazon's site doesn't really say either. Anyone care to clue me in?

It's a stretchy bandage that is used to secure dressing underneath for a wound or injury.

Just wanted to pass along an update on This Little Piggie Marketplace. It's a First Aid Kit for guinea pigs -- the Cavy Kit. Includes lots of little necessities like eye wash, providone idodine, simethicone drops, feeding syringes and more! Image

You can check it out here.

As always, thanks for looking!

Thanks! Yes, my design (with really good input from some folks here), and literally my sweat and tears -- the air went out on our car today, so I was driving around in 98-degree heat to pick up product.
