    Aggressive Piggie

    This past week my eldest piggy has been acting very aggressive towards my younger ones (even injuring the smallest foot). I have separated them until I get a bigger cage which is coming in the mail, but every time I get all 4 of my pigs in the playpen together he starts chattering his teeth at...

    Aggressive Female + Shy Female

    I have had a female guinea pig named Macy for nearly two years, I got her by herself because my parents only let me get one at the time. Recently I got a baby guinea pig (female as well) and she is only two months. I was expecting it to be a bit difficult with Macy as she's been alone for so...

    Teeth Chattering - Fast And Slow

    I've read that fast teeth chattering is meant aggressively, but is that always the case? Could it sometimes be meant defensively if a pig is feeling a little unsure or nervous? When I feed my piggies their fresh fruit and veg, Jasmine has occasionally approached the bars of the cage chattering...

    Hello all, My pigs (Weasley, the long haired one and Potter, the short haired one) have had a massive mood swing this evening and have gone from sleeping peacefully in the same igloo to suddenly trying very aggressively to dominate one another.

    Behaviour Change

    Hello Recently one of my eldest Guinea Pigs (3 Years) has had a change in behaviour. Her name is Honey and she is a very sociable Guinea Pig. When we first got her she had some very clingy behaviour to the eldest Guinea Pig (Izzy) she was housed with. She followed her and would cry without her...

    Suprelorin Implant For Toast

    Yet another thing to add to Toast's problems... I'm just looking for a bit of advice, or someone who can point me in the right direction. I've posted before about how I've had to separate the pigs temporarily because when Toast comes into season she's getting more and more aggressive each...

    Had To Separate The Pigs... Again!

    I feel so bad but I've had to separate Beans and Toast again. The past few months, every time Toast comes into season she's getting more and more aggressive. I've had to separate in the past by putting grids down the middle of the cage so they could still see each other, but this time Toast...

    My Boys Are Fighting, Will It Ever Work?

    i have two males, Louie, who's two years old, and Norman, who's roughly 5 months. I have been working on bonding since I got Norman about two months ago.

    Terrified Toast Has An Uri

    Long post but please stick with me. I've spent the last few hours searching through health threads on here and Guinea Lynx and I've got a horrible sinking feeling Toast has a URI. For some time, every now and again Toast would make this strange sound, which after researching and listening to...

    Mean Biting Piggie

    So I've had my guinea pig for about 6 months now and at first he was fine, no issue at all, but recently (maybe a month) he has started acting very aggressive. He bites my hand for no reason, and bites hard. He bites me if I try to pet him, or if I give him food or Water. He has drawn blood. He...
