    Fighting

    Hi! I got a guinea pig about a week ago and named her daisy. She was the sweetest cuddly thing ever and she’s super young and little still. I ended up getting her a friend three days after getting her so she wouldn’t be lonely. The new one is zoey. Zoey is a little bit bigger and older then...

    Ear torn badly.

    Warning: Image of injury at bottom. Phil and Alex have had a fight. I'm used to their normal bickering but today was by far the worse. Phil's ear has been torn nearly in two, I can see white which I assume is cartilage. When I picked him up i found many scratches that had scabbed over under...

    Should I get a third Gpig?

    I have 2 brother guinea pigs and since a couple of months ago they haven't been getting along at all and have fought a few times . I keep separating them and that hardly eases the tension.

    Hi everyone. I have three guinea pigs. Two of them I adopted at the same time and they’ve always been glued at the hip and very close.

    I have two boys currently being housed together in a custom C&C cage that’s 4x2 with an extra 1x2 space to the side, along with a 2x2 (talking in panels, not feet. I believe each panel is about 11-13 inches?) upstairs area. They’re brothers and have been housed together since they were born, and...
