    Medical Separation Issues

    So, I found the information on this forum too late regarding not separating guinea pigs after surgery, and now I’m experiencing significant issues. I’m not sure there’s a solution, but if anybody has any ideas, I’d be really grateful. I have two sows - Molasses and Parfait - who have been...

    When/if to separate?

    Hello fellow piggie-lovers, I recently posted a thread alike this one, but things have changed since then. My two 12-week-old and 13-week-old guinea pigs just do not seem to get along.

    Aggressive male pig

    I have a pair of guinea pigs which are both male, although one of them is very aggressive towards the other one. I'm not sure what is best for them as they have an entire room to run around other than their cage space as well as multiple food bowls, water, hay feeder ect. and still fight. Should...

    My Sow's Grooming Needs are Hurting our Relationship

    We've owned our coronet/american cross sow since she was just a pup, she is now almost three. She gets plenty of socialization and for the first part of her life, happy purrs during lap time, and wheeks when she heard us come home were a regular thing. But her long hair requires a lot more...
