How to make C&C Cages-- guineapigcages.com Although I don't currently have floor space for C&C units, I'm a big fan and have put them together plenty of times. This site has instructions for assembly and other care tips. See my Facebook page, Stylish Cavies, for bathing and grooming videos. When you buy a cavy from me, you also get a booklet style PDF with other care information.
Fungal Infections in Cavies--Pretty self explanitory.
http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/GuineaPigBreeders/ Yahoo group is extensive membership and experience. The archive database is filled with very helpful "threads" about pretty much every aspect of cavy care, health, breeding, genetics, etc. Chances are, if you have a question, you will find an answer in the database without even having to ask the question.
Guinea Lynx Discussion forums have lots of good archived threads. There's a lot of great healthcare advice, too.
Cavies for Pleasure & Profit a Victorian publication about raising cavies. Take the advice with a grain of salt as we've upgraded/improved the lives of our piggies a lot in the last century.
