    Lone guinea pig - what to do?

    About 2 weeks ago, we picked up a lone little boy from a breeder. The breeder sold him alone because he was born in a litter of only girls, and all of the other baby guinea pigs from that breeder were also little girls. Very early on, the breeder isolated our little guy away from his mum and...

One of them if very active and makes squeaking noise and will take food from my hand whilst the other just scuttles up to my neck and will lay...

    Buying From A Breeder

    I have been enquiring about a couple of young pure bred guinea pigs. Their owner is a judge at shows which I felt encourage by. I felt that buying from here was a much better option than a pet shop. However he has just told me that he owns over 50 guinea pigs. Is this something that should put...

    Is My Piggie Sick (allergy Or Uri?)

    Hi, I'm from the USA. My husband and I just bought two baby piggies from Petsmart (and now I know not to ever do that again because they may have come from a supplier that mistreats the animals). One of them has a little crust around her nose, and every once and a while she will let out a...
