-EvangelineYou should really think about selling clothes and stuff with guinea pig captions on it.
Done! I ordered a couple of the t-shirts myself and am interested to see what they're like and how the sizes run. My husband was thrilled that I could get his in a 5XL!

On another note, has the "Rollin the Hay " wheel you have listed been discussed somewhere before? I just get concerned about these free moving wheels, I know for sure I've read of one pig getting it's foot caught. :/
Love that 'Warning, with an attitude'!
On the Rollin the Hay, a member posted awhile back that a baby guinea pig got stuck inside the ball. I own the ball (have had it for quite some time), and most of our guinea pigs have played with it at one time or another. From my own experience the item seems safe for adult pigs, but I did post a note on the product that it's probably not suitable for younger pigs. If anyone has any other experiences with it, please do let me know. I don't want to list anything questionable.
Mum-- yikes, you bought from Baxa directly? They charge a $10 processing fee for orders under $100, don't they? What sizes of their syringes do you use the most? 1ml?
- I GAVE, dammit!
They didn't charge me the $10 processing fee because of the rescue.
I adore those syringes - and they last a lot longer than most because of the rubber o-ring, rather than that big bit that comes off in pigs mouths.
Here's something else you need: I do a lot of handfeeding. I have to modify the 1cc monoject syringes to do that:
I cut the tip off - below the main barrel
Get out a dremel - drill through the hole to make it big enough
Get out the dremel sander - smooth it off
This is wonderful - no more rubber plungers to go down pigs' throats.
I usually do 5 at a time, because I use 5 on a pig that doesn't want to eat. Than I refill them as many times as needed.
I don't use the baxa syringes for this - the plastic is harder.
You could include one of those with your kit, perhaps?
(I just ordered some magnets - how did I miss those?)
Here are the flat pads (there are heavier duty ones too):

If Staples or any of the other office supplies did, even craft stores, try looking in the paint and drawing isles to for large painting type boxes. Perhaps one of the places could order some for you, the box brand was Duck if that helps.
If I read anything more on the hay wheels I'll e-mail you. :)
And the pads are out, too. Uline (and most other companies I looked into) charges $60 shipping! This seems to be the norm whether I order 10 or 50, as they use a trucking company to transport it due to the size.
Back to the drawing board.

Sef, if you can do this I'd still buy a few, and I bet others would too. I'm fairly handy with tools, but I'm not sure we have a set like this -- or if we do, it's somewhere in the darkest reaches of the basement, where nothing with fewer than eight legs resides.
