    Not Sure What Behavior Means

    Hi! So, I fed my guinea pig this morning, and I noticed that she did something strange that I hadn’t noticed ever before. She flattened her ears against her head and they moved up and down constantly while she was eating. I hope this doesn’t mean anything bad. Thank you, your help is much...

    Guinea pig crust?

    I’m looking at my guinea pig Luna and she has this under her eye. She’s eating and everything and running around and I just took them to the vet not too long ago. She’s sneezed like 2 times so far but everything seems normal. Is this a concern?

    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...
