    My guinea pigs won’t let me pick them up

    I had my guinea pigs for a month and a half. I just realize they may be 5 to 6 months old not 6 to 7. My guinea pig still won’t let me pick them up and will get mad at me if I try. Do you guys have any tips? Thank You!

    Vitamin C confusion

    I've been doing research because me and my partner are worried for our guinea pigs health. She's been having some excess calcium, but last night was extra. All powdery, nothing too big either. We are looking to change pellets because I heard Oxbow isn't the best and they have helped create...

    Guinea pig won't stop scratching, don't want to stress him too badly!

    Hi all. Me again. I hope it's okay, I've read so much, and it helps to get advice from other piggy parents. So I started with 3 boys, Judo, Guts, and Bert. Judo passed away after a trip to the ER, I believe due to gut stasis I wasn't informed of. I scheduled an appointment for Guts the same...

    My boar seems very confused

    Hey there, I got 4 sows and 1 boar which were all adopted from people who didnt want them anymore or because they lost their cage friend. Anyways, my boar: Elvis always seems very confused as of what he should do. He could come out of a tunnel then look around then just go back in and come out...

    Why does My guinea pig have crusty eyes?

    Our eldest piggie Hazel has a little crust in one eye not too bad, just a little. She's never had this before so I thought that was weird, She's about 3 years old so I don't know if this is because she's aging. I also noticed that she sneezed a few times (which she always does), but she's still...

    Guinea pigs both dying oddly

    Hello, i made an account here to check on something. My baby girl ray, died a few weeks back. I loved her so much, and i was so broken to see her go. Unfortunately my other piggy yui took it really hard so i had to get a new one. Sure as heck she died too this morning, the same way. The key...

    Is fear of certain foods normal?

    I have two guinea pigs and I'm starting to realize that my one named Skittle has a fear of certain fruits, specifically cantaloupe and blueberries. Not only will he refuse to eat them, but run away and/or chitter at me when I try to offer them by hand. My other boar(Parrot) doesn't do this so I...

    Popcorning or irritated?

    Hello lovelies! I have a quick question, is there a way to differentiate whether a small jump was a popcorn or a flinch from an irritation eg a mite bite/itch? For context: - I rescued two sisters (approx 4 years old) 12 days ago. One is very timid, the other a little more confident and both...

    My Guinea Pig Died A Sudden Death

    Tonight 18/5/19 at around 6pm, my 3 year old guinea pig died suddenly. She wasn’t eating her food or wanting any water, wouldn’t move from the one spot, every 5-10 seconds it was like she did a big hiccup or it looked like she was convulsing and she kept making a weird sound with her mouth...

    Shy Guinea Pig

    I’ve had Macy for coming on about three years. She is quite outgoing. Like most Guinea pigs, shell run if I try to pick her up but she’ll be fine immediately after. I can pet her through the cage and could basically scream (not that I do or would) and she’d be fine if not a small freeze. When I...

    Piggie acting weird/afraid

    Cleon has been kinda weird since I put him back in his cage yesterday. He only got his nails done. I cleaned out his cage when we got home then put him back in his cage. When I put him back I left for a couple hours at around 3:30 and didn’t check on him until about 9 or 9:30. He hasn’t pooped...

    For the past 2 days my guinea pigs haven’t drank anything from their water bottle? They are both lively, playing, eating just not drinking? I’ve just ran out of hay so they didn’t have much yesterday but I’m on my way out now to get some..they’ve had some grass and red pepper and devoured the...

    Is this okay?

    My guinea pig has, as nasty as this sounds, bedding in his bum hole, and I don't know what to do. I don't want to hurt him and pull it out. I changed to paper begging right when I found out, but is he gonna be okay?

    Please Help Is My Guinea Pig In Pain?

    This is Snow, my little female piggie. I'm having a hard time telling the difference between if she is just very comfortable and relaxed or she is in much pain. She is eating and drinking okay. It's been pretty warm here so maybe she is just hot? Please someone answer. She jays there, feet out...

    C & C Cages So Hard To Find In The Uk!

    What is a reasonable price to pay for a c&c cage ? I was going to buy one from a suggested site today but my partner isn't so sure as it's a lot of money. The materials are really hard to find to be able to build seperately. I've looked at a number of places and I'm looking at between £70 and...

    Really Worried About Beans And Toast, Not Sure What's Happened?

    I'm not sure what's just happened... I was sitting talking to the pigs, they were both in their own hay boxes, absolutely fine. I looked away for a second then heard Beans running into another hidey house. It was so fast that it made me look to see what happened. Beans looked absolutely...

    Blood On The Fleece - Baffled!

    I have two soon to be 7 month old girls. The little one is always bouncy and full of courage but the big one is typically more reserved, let's the little one test the waters before committing to anything. They had a bit of a disagreement a couple of weeks ago which sounded horrible but no...
