    Ripping Out Her Fur

    I have a 5-6 month old female guinea pig. I got her from a woman with really young children because she was afraid they were handling her too roughly. I had her alone for a while, until I could find her a friend, which I have had with her for about two days so far, they seem to like each other...

    Will She Be Okay?

    I was cuddling with my peruvian guinea pig Bubbles and a small bit of her fur got stuck on a part of my phone case (it is poor quality and the glue isn't strong anymore). She made a small pain noise and that small bit of fur came out. She's doing fine now. Nothing will happen right?

    Petting

    I have two girls, an american (Nymeria) and a peruvian (Bubbles). Nymeria loves it when I pet her and I when I rub her cheeks in both directions. I some times fluff her fur in the other direction, just around the head and she doesn't seem to mind it and is relaxed. I read that it is bad to do...

    Severely Matted Long-haired Piggie!

    Hello all, hope you're having a lovely day! To the point! Today I adopted Ozzy, a 2 and a half year old Piggie from a work associate who, putting it nicely, didn't much care for him after his first owner passed away. I said I would look after the little fella, having owned piggies (short...

    Hair Loss

    I have two piggys, one called mimbles and the other called pips- both girls. We rescued mimbles as she was let out and found by an old lady and when no one claimed her we kept her and bough pip to keep her company. She is a very nervous piggy despite being the dominant one of the two. They were...

    Guinea Pig Has "crusty" Fur

    I have a guinea pig that had "crusty" hair on her nose bridge. I ignored it because that was the only spot on her and the rest of her was nice and soft. I was petting her today while she was in her cage and I noticed that her back was now the same "crusty" texture. There probably is a better was...
