Does anyone know what signs a guinea pig will show if he / she is depressed?
Cuzzy went depressed when he was ill. He stopped eating and was just stationary, looking at the floor all the time and huddled in a corner. He was a lone pig so I got Eccles for him but then he became ill again and passed away.
Why what's up?
Thanks for that Louise. It's going back to the thread I posted about my friends girlfriend with the small hutch. We are visiting them in London in the middle of August so i'll get to meet and see the piggies. She reassures me that the pigs are fine and happy. I just thought that if I new the signs of depression then if her pigs are depressed, I can point it out to her.
