    Guinea pig suddenly attacking the other.

    We bought two male 8 month old pigs around two months ago as they were adoption ones in Pets At Home. Up until now they’ve been fine; cuddling and playing. Yesterday morning we woke up to find one (Blueberry) hiding in the hay rack away from the other (Mr Muffin). I took him out to find out his...

    Two three month old boars fighting

    We recently bought 2 brother guinea-pigs. After having 3 sets of female guinea pigs who all lived happy long lives we thought males would be much the same and easy going... However, they started scrapping about 3 weeks ago and it progressively got worse resulting in one now missing half of his...

    Sudden Aggression From Sow

    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. Starting last night, one of them has seemed to not be able to coexist with the other one. Even if her friend passes her, she starts loudly chattering and getting...

    Guinea pig high pitch squeaks

    So one of my guinea pigs has been squeaking at a high pitch squeak when my other guinea pig hops in the bed with her. I see the bed shake and high pitch squeaks and I run over and it looks like the one guinea pig jumps in and nips the other. And then everything is fine. They lay side by side and...

    Sudden Aggression/Humping after almost a Year of Peace?

    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...

Before putting them together I bathed them together and put them on the floor for several hours together. When put in the cage (first was 7 feet by 5 feet wide, second was an L shaped-...

    Guinea pigs fighting after months of peace

    I currently have a couple of two male guinea pigs living together in the same cage. They have about 1,5 month difference in age, and have been together for 4 months now. They had a few problems when I put them together (I made a thread about it, I initially got only one and then took the second...

    Guinea pigs fighting very aggressively

    Hey! :) So recently, two of my pigs have been at it. Conki and Sabi. Sabi is known for being a little bit of a sissy but this seems pretty bad. Conki will randomly attack her, and when Sabi is nervous she runs into the corner of the cage and faces me. It’s so sad. I want to help her but should I...

    Aggressive female piggy!

    Hey, I have two female piggies who are both almost 4 years old called Pippa and Jo. We got Jo first and she is a few months older but, while Pippa has always been the quieter and more nervous piggy, they have always got on together well. Yesterday while I was cleaning the cage however, Jo...

    Teenage tantrums.

    So, I got my boys one day apart, from different litters, same breeder, when they were both supposedly 10 weeks old. I got the nutty (King) Louis (tortoise shell, his highness) first and we bonded pretty well right away. He was instantly territorial when I brought home She-Ra (Princess of Power...

    Is it still normal dominance fighting?

    Hello, so, I got a new guinea pig yesterday to get a new companion for my other guinea pig, whose previous companion died recently. Both of them are female, used to humans and around 4 years old. I set up an extra area for them to meet and get to know each other, put multiple hideouts and food...

    Boar help!

    Hello, we are new guinea pig owners. After thinking about getting cavies for years I saw someone in our village had babies that required urgent homes due to them moving. I did a bad thing - I acted on impulse and said we would take them. However, when they dropped them off they gave us three...

    my 2 boys have been going through piggy puberty. I have a girlie at age 6 months and has been put away from the boys as I’ve been told to do so. My two boys will constantly chase, chutter and fight when in the cage together, but if I’ve separated the cage they desperately try to get to...
