I take it that it's under a pound and you can mail it Priority? If you can include at least 4 guaze packs, that would be good.

It is right at a pound. That darned eye wash is what takes up so much space and makes it heavy. I wish they made a smaller unit than 4 oz. I mean, how much does a little piggie need?

Does the weight include the shipping box?

Thats great. When I get the money, I will be getting one.

I keep checking your website to see the new stuff you've done. It really looks great.

Update: I have added generic 1% Ivermectin to the site, through KV Vet at a fairly decent price.

I'm also working with one of the other sellers to offer the .5% pour-on formula, as well as a small bottle of propylene glycol, for diluting down the horse paste for those who choose to go that route instead.

You don't have to dilute the pour-on. I would skip the propylene glycol.

As I mentioned, it's for diluting down the horse paste (which I don't have listed yet). Or do people have better luck just using plain water?

I think the plain water works best. I'm also not so hot on the horse paste. I think they should do topical with the 1% or 0.5% solution.

Me neither. I'll leave it off the site.

I did some calling around the sign stores around here, and the only store that can get purple coroplast will cost me $50. No way!

I still have 2 sign stores left to ask, but they NEVER answer the phone, but even if I do finally contact them, I'd still like to compare the costs. So, sef, can you get me purple coroplast? One the size of a 2x3 grid cage, and the other 53" by 20" (for the second level)? And what will each cost me?

Oh, and Sue from C&C cages did tell me she could get me purple coroplast but it'll be $45 for just the bottom level. Ulp!

Oh, the ONE sign store we have here, the girl didn't even know what coroplast WAS! I had to tell her "corrugated plastic".

She couldn't help me with a price, so she said someone would call me. Well, nobodies called. Sheesh. Sef is so much easier to work with! And CHEAP!

whittibo,
I appreciate the plug, but I didn't do a very good job on the packing, I'm afraid. The mailroom was supposed to bring me a tall, thin box to send it in, and instead I ended up with a flat box that was impossible to fit the two sheets in. So, I ended up having to score them with the dinky box cutter here at work, and them fold them into the box. One sheet cracked and I sent you an email to ask that you PLEASE let me know if it's not acceptable. I don't want you to have something that you can't use.

Unless I can find a better way to send the stuff, I'm not going to sell it on the site. :-(

Oh, sef! Really, I don't mind cracked coroplast. I cracked mine too, when I folded it.

But if you really don't want to sell coroplast, I suppose it's all right (sigh). I'll just have to try harder to find a sign store around here that sells purple coroplast. Why does my favorite color have to be purple? Why couldn't it be green or blue? :P

I already ordered some supplies from your site. What a great resource!

You should really think about selling clothes and stuff with guinea pig captions on it.

Great job, by the way.

Sef - do you have liquid vit C on the site? I didn't see any? The stuff I have has such a big opening, I keep losing my syringes in the bottle and it's really making me mad! It's eaten 2 syringes and I can't get them out!

I could list it, but it wouldn't come from one of the sellers that I use -- so you couldn't combine shipping.

What size bottle opening do you have? (measure to outside threads). Sounds like you could use a Baxa Adapta-cap and syringe. I have a few in my personal inventory, if you're interested.

Sef I'm forever grateful for TLPMP. I ordered the ear thermometer from you for Rodney and I was able to monitor his temp without a scary car ride (taking a rectal in a male piggy isn't my idea of fun?). It also helped me make the difficult decision to euthanize because we couldn't get the temp down. I love TLPMP and will recommend it anytime I get the chance.

Fossil Barb,
What a touching story. I'm so glad the site helped you, although I wish it had been under happier circumstances. Thanks so much for the kind words.
