    Help caring for a baby guinea pig?

    I’ve messed up here. I know I have, so please be kind to me. I got a 20 day old Guinea pig today. I didn’t know how young she was: I was told she was 4 weeks, not almost 3. She’s apparently weaned, and definitely has the y shaped genitals of a girl, though there’s a tiny nub nothing pops out...

    Bonding to make a trio

    Hi, I have just adopted a pair of sows and am hoping that I can introduce a younger sow to form a trio. Obviously I have to wait a couple of weeks or more for them to settle in and trust us, but would it work trying to do this? The pair I have are 1 years old. (Photo from previous owner)

    5 days old head tilted on one side

    Hello, I really need help. My mommy guinea pig recently gave birth to 4 babies. Just a moment ago, I suddenly noticed 1 of them can't walk nor sit straight, head tilted on side and one eye is unresponsive (sclera can be seen). He can move and wiggle his legs but when I put him down, his head...

    Very nervous new pigs!

    Hi new time pig owner here! I adopted a pair of 12 week old boys last week. I have read so many taming techniques, all say to start with offering them food in their hide and move your hand away and they will eat it, then move on from there…. Mine just sit terrified at the back of the hide and...

    Baby hairless and watery eye?

    Hi everybody. I recently got another guinea pig despite not being fully ready, because my other guinea pig Bert needed a companion. They're doing super well together, luckily. His name is Will, and he's a hairless breed, with only hair on his nose and paws. He's about a couple months old now...

    Baby Rex Guinea Pigs

    My babies when they were 6 weeks old and the last pics are of them yesterday at 3 years old! I love looking back on old photos of how small they were especially because they are so big now! 🥰

    Baby pigs with bald patches

    Hi there I rehomed 2 baby sows yesterday afternoon. 8.5 weeks. When I collected the lady said that they were born with cradle cap. She had given to Pets At Home for advice (sigh) and they advised to treat with coconut oil 3 times a day. She said it had cleared considerably since then. I have...

    Bonding two Sows

    Good evening everyone 🙂, Hopefully someone can shed some light on if this behaviour is establishing hierarchy or if it’s fighting/ unable to bond. One of my Guinea boars passed away a couple weeks ago which left my one sow pretty lonely and she was obviously missing him. I was lucky to have...

    Anyone know what this behavior is? It sometimes can look like Moose (mom) is kicking Coco (baby). It's putting everyone on edge.

    See title. Moose has been kicking and throwing her butt and her baby recently. I have never seen this behavior before in any of my other guinea pigs. Should I separate them?

I am planning to adopt a second boar next week which is about 1.5 months old while mine is 3 months old. I am planning to put them in a 2x6 C&C cage. Do I need to quarantine the other boar or should...

    New Guinea pig after death

    Last night my Guinea pig stevie died leaving his 4 year old cagemate alyx alone. I know that Guinea pigs are social animals so we are looking for a new one. But how old should it be? If we got a younger one (a baby), I'm afraid that it would be alone after alyxs death and we would have to keep...

    Bare patch with cut?

    I've recently posted about urgently rescuing a baby guinea pig as it was alone for weeks. This is about the baby. I have noticed that all my piggies apart from one is completely fine with her. I first noticed a small wound on her nose and thought it might have been a warning nip gone too far...
