Anybody order hay and/or pellets from Chewy?

Lynx, Sef, years ago I read a post by Kleenmama about why she stopped breeding guinea pigs. I can't remember whether it was on here or at GPC, but can't find it either place. Do either of you know where to access that?

ETA: Never mind, I found it.

Renonvsparky, please read this before you proceed with any plans for breeding. Thanks.

That was sobering.

It is sobering. As I have stated at least twice now, I have no plans in motion to breed guinea pigs at this time or any time in the near future. It is just something I have given thought to. I have considered the risk. If I ever do it, a veterinarian would monitor and supervise very closely. The cost of that alone is prohibitive at this point.

Wow! If that doesn’t make you think nothing will. Very sad.

I dissent.

I might be over-thinking this, but my hay order arrived today and the box was partially open. It looks like the tape wasn't very sticky and didn't seal the box properly---leaving a gaping hole on top. From what I can tell, the bag of hay inside is okay and normally I wouldn't give it too much thought, but with Covid I'm a little more concerned whenever I see something like this. I don't know what the contents might have been exposed to.

I have the box out in the garage for now and debating whether or not to contact Chewy. If it were you, would you just let the bag of hay sit out for a few days and use it anyway, or would you contact Chewy for a replacement?

I would go ahead and use it.

I think I mentioned my neighbor got a delivery of cat food from Chewy and one of the local bears dragged it off! I noticed it in the woods near the road and she gave the rest to her cat (I think 75% or so was left).

I would use it. COVID doesn't last long on a surface like that, and would certainly be unable to infect anything after having been shipped.

I'd use it, no problem.

I agree, I'd use it. I'm not too concerned about surfaces, handwashing should take care of anything you touch.
