He's very handsome. If you take him or not, Mr. Demus 625, I hope things work out best for the little boy.

What a handsome guy. I hope everything works out with your piggie family and that this gorgeous fellow is home with you soon.

My Izzy came to me in a similar fashion. She was so sick I did not think she was going to make it. She is now my cuddliest pig and I swear she smiles all the time. Until she came into my life, I had no idea that guinea pigs could grin.

I spoke to our vet today and she seriously almost made me cry. I asked her about iPig and she sounded really excited about the prospect of us adopting him. However her recommendation was that if we do, he is solo pig. She mentioned that all the testing they'd done on his eye had come back chlamydia free BUT to be of the safe side she said to keep him separate which the way we are planning cage renovations wouldn't be a problem. He'd still be "around" the other but not in contact. Plus since he's intact we don't want him around Plumps. I'm going to call Ashley tomorrow and let her know we are taking him. Just need to wait until we get Beezles lab work back.

Why did she recommend keeping him apart? We've had pigs that had confirmed chlamydia in their eyes and after treatment we paired them with 'normal' pigs with no problem.

She was worried about transmission since it still isn't clear what is wrong with his eye.

My Scooter who has passed away pretty recently had a recurring eye problem. After an xray the vet thinks his face may have been broken at some time and it was causing eye/nasal drainage that wouldn't stop. I had to give eye drops daily but he had good quality of life despite that.

Good luck if IPig comes home with you. It sounds like he's a sweetheart already.

Thank you for rescuing him--I would absolutely consider this a rescue! Even though he is a solo pig, it will be the right thing. All he really needs is your love.

Right now I'm worried bringing him home but it for sure wont be until we can figure out what's going with the herd. This summer sucks.

Well iPig should be coming home sometime this week. For now he will be housed separately but after we get some eye cultures we may intro him to Gibbs and Vatican. He will be getting neutered sometime this winter for sure so no floor time with Plumps. We were in PetSmart for a good hour with him earlier. He is seriously just so sweet, he LOVES being cuddled. Turns out he actually stays in like a Rubbermaid container on their food cart so he does the opening feedings with the employees in the morning. He just rides on the cart munching on his veggies and hanging out.

Also hilariously enough 625 is the last of our petstore pigs . When we bought him the girls called him "jerk pig" because he would bite and bully other pigs. He was constantly biting them. Since getting him he's never bitten us, never bitten another pig other than Mephy (Alpha issues), 625 is one of the sweetest boys. Why it's funny is because they got in a new boar and now he is apparently Jerk Pig, he bites clothes, bites people, doesn't get along with other pigs. They've treated him for Ringworm and mites so that may have been his issue but he looks EXACTLY like 625. I was like I think he's haunting you...lol

If you figure out what is wrong with his eye and it needs ongoing medication please let me know as I have some extra eye meds I bought up when Scooter needed them long term. He has passed on so they're just sitting in a shelf. Let me know and I can ship to you. :)

Lucky little ipig. What a great life he has ahead of him. I love the mental picture of him riding the cart munching vegs. ; )
