    Fighting

    I bought three male guinea pigs at the beginning of January 2018, it was not the plan as I went in to buy two but left with three because I did not have it in me to leave the third behind.

    Cut/bite - Advice Please

    Strange Sore On Her Face

    I noticed while feeding my lovely Rosie this more that she has some kind of sore beside her nose. As I'm not as seasoned in Guinea pig care as most of you guys I'm wondering if any of you might know what this may be. I touched it with clean hands and she didn't react so I doesn't seem sore but i...

    Trimming Baby Nails

    What age should you start trimming nails? I don't want them to grow too much as half of them (out of three pigs) are black and long quicks are a pain in the bum! My girls are about 6 months old and still have needley baby claws, apart from one claw on one pig which is a bit thicker and looks...
