    Specialist Nursing Guinea Pig & Sneezing & Pneumonia

    2 months ago, my friend's guinea pig gave birth to three little cavies. My friend could no longer care for them, so I took in the mother and one of the daughters.

    Brother And Sister And Risk Of Inbreeding.

    I am in a complicated situation... I adopted two 1 month old guinea pigs having been told they were both male.... turns out after I checked they are brother and sister. The former owner is unreachable (not surprising) and I don't know what to do. The two seem very bonded, and the separation...

    Two bundles of joy were born under our roof today! We had an accidental pregnancy between two of our rescues when our mischievous Silkie-Mix male tore open his C&C cage wall.

    Insurance For Babies?

    I was looking at the insurance policy documents and it seems there's an exclusion for pigs younger than 12 weeks if i recall correctly. Wouldn't they be covered then?

    My husband and I are guinea pig parents for the first time! We bought 2 4-month old girls 3 days ago.

    I have two baby boy piggies, one is 9 weeks and the other one is 11 weeks, I feed them what I think is quite a lot but they only seem to eat leafy greens, they won't really eat pepper, Apple, carrot etc. So I usually give them a handful of spinach (which is their absolute favourite), a handful...
