    Hi guys, so I got my guinea pig a few weeks ago, and she’s been great (always active, comes out, interacts, eating a lot) and then today, out of nowhere, she’s been hiding and hasn’t come out much for food or water. We tried to syringe her some water and she took a little but hasn’t ate much...

    C&c cages for babies

    Hi I was wondering if anyone knows anything about having babies in c&c cages? Are they safe for them? Wanting to buy a cage but not sure if I need to spend extra to have baby bars put in if they are ok with normal grids. So if anyone knows anything that would be fab! Xx

    What gender is my 4 week old guinea pig?

    So my 3 guinea pigs are approaching 4 weeks old and we're trying to determine what genders they are so we can try to separate them and get the males neutered.

    Skittish Piggies

    I got two male baby pigs a week ago and they’re very skittish. Whenever I move they dart into their hidey house. I was sitting on my bed and I stretched and they went into full panic mode. I’ve been handling them, but maybe I’m not supposed to at this stage? What can I do to tame them or at...

    When to hold new baby Guinea Pig?

    I just brought home my baby Guinea pig 2 days ago. Not sure exactly how hold he is but my guess is he is 2-3 months. He started eating out of my hand an hour after being home, which I understand is quite fast. But is nervous when I go to pet him, jumps at any little noise I make and the 3 times...

    Missing my baby.

    Exactly two months ago he passed away. I still get really upset talking about him, he was my baby. He meant the world to me. His passing hit me hard, he went so suddenly and if I’m being honest, I don’t want to move on for fear of forgetting my darling.
