In the wee hours, night before last, our girl Guinea Pig gave birth. We had been gifted this Piggie and were not certain she was pregnant. (Our first experience having a GP. She was chunky, but not excessively so. A very sweet little thing. Sadly, she didn't survive the birthing experience and we found her dead in her cage, with 3 little piggies running around beside her. I found a lot of conflicting info about feeding orphaned GP's on the internet. I called around all of the local pet shops and vet offices looking for Guinea Pig milk replacer, in our small town, and no surprise, there was none to be found. Our vet suggested using diluted evaporated milk and the little ones seem to like it real well. I tried making up kitten milk replacer and they didn't like it at all. So I mixed some into the evap. milk thinking I could enrich it. They still do not like the taste of the kitten milk. I am worried that they will be missing out on some much needed vitamins and minerals etc...if I just feed them solely evaporated milk. Are their any GP enthusiasts who can advice me on a better formula for feeding these babies? From what I have read it is hard to keep these little guys alive without mama. Any help is much appreciated. Here are some pictures of the little piggies.
