    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. I named them Alvin, Simon, and Theodore. However, I soon noticed that there was something wrong with Alvin...

    Help A Piggy Mama Out: Bonded Boars Suddenly Hate Each Other.

    I have two boys- Max and Maverick. I've had them for about 6 mos and they have always squabbled and done the whole dominance thing, but they never seriously fought. As an example, they would have (what I call) chatter fights where they get angry and circle each other but they never actually...

    One Male ‘mounting’ Other?

    hi there, I have two male guinea pigs and have had them for about a year and a half now. We’ve had some trouble with them fighting in the past but they’ve always had this thing when one would climb on the others back whilst rumbling. It’s always Floof climbing on Jet’s back, so I checked Jet’s...

    Hi everyone, I have 3 lovely piggies who live together full-time, 2 females (Muffin and Martha) and one boy (Ice Cream). Recently Martha and Ice Cream have been a bit unsocial, often hiding away under their castles for long periods, sleeping a bit more than usual. Muffin is behaving her usual...

    Digging A Hole?

    Hello there folks! Not an urgent query I don't think, but I came downstairs today to find that one of my guinea pigs had dug a narrow but deep hole in their sawdust (temporary measure while I try and get enough funds together to get my fleece and towel set up on the go). It was in the cage of...

    Nail Clipping

    I plan on getting 2 male Guinea pigs in August, after researching further about Guinea pig health I realized that the nails will need to be cut when neccescary.

    Hello all! Some of you may know, recently we had a loss in my household as little Ozzy passed away. :( It's been a short while now, and yesterday we went to rehome some rescue piggies from a close-by shelter.

    A Male And A Female...

    Just over a year ago I got my two Guinea Pigs. I was told they were both female at the store but I was 99% sure one was male. Everyone I know (including one vet who seems to have vanished) thought they were both female (they were very young Piggles in all fairness). Today the one I suspected to...
