    new piggies, very timid/scared

    Hi everyone! We got two small girl guinea pigs 4 weeks ago, they were 2 months old when we got them. They are called Coco and Winnie. They live in a heated shed outdoors most of the time, in a big hutch, and every afternoon we bring them inside for a few hours, into a run in the dining room...

    Guinea Pig Won't Enter His Cage After Floor Time

    Hello everyone, I have a curious deal with our guinea pig boy as of yesterday, wanted to see if anyone else had a similar experience with this. We've been upgrading our C&C cage setting since we're adopting three more guinea pigs. Our current boy (single but not for long!) was in a 2-story...

    Woke up this morning to petrified pig!

    Please help! I woke up this morning to give my pigs some breakfast veggies and went into their room. Tiger (female/3.5 years) usually is the first to rush to breakfast. She just sat in the hay frozen. There is hay kicked out of the cage too. Everytime I go near her she panics and runs. She is...

    Not eating hay-only eating poop?

    Hi, I've have been so worried these past few days about some behaviors one of my guinea pigs, Pumpkin, has been having. The timeline of events starts last week on either Tuesday or Thursday, when we took her to the vet for nasal discharge. The vet said Pumpkin had a URI and sent us home with...

    What are you afraid of?

    Just wondering what phobias we all have? Any weird/funny ones? I'll start. I'm afraid of bridges. No matter the length. Flipping terrified. I'm not scared of heights, though. 😅

    Skittish Piggies

    I got two male baby pigs a week ago and they’re very skittish. Whenever I move they dart into their hidey house. I was sitting on my bed and I stretched and they went into full panic mode. I’ve been handling them, but maybe I’m not supposed to at this stage? What can I do to tame them or at...

    scared guinea pig!

    Hello! One of my abbyruvian guinea pigs is really scared. Her companion who is slightly older than her allows me to hold her, carry her around and play with her. However, when I try to do that with her, she hisses and runs away then cowers in the corner. She does not respond to any bribery like...

    Scared outside

    Hi, I see so many people posting photos of their guineapigs outside and it looks like they’re having a great time. About 6 months ago I went to amazon and brought a run. I put in hay, houses water and toys and went to bring them outside (they are indoor pigs) and I left them outside the first...

    Skittish babies :(

    I'm a relatively new piggie mom and after having my young male piggie for a few months we decided to have him neutered so we could adopt a female. Our male is very skittish, he's about 6 months old and since we adopted him a few months ago he's warmed up to us to be able to come up to us when...

    Floor time

    So I’ve had Horace and Benji for about a year now and have never really given them floor time. Bambi’s cage (my other guinea pig) is so large that the space I have for floor time would be much less than his cage size and so I’ve never given it to him. However, Horace and Benji only have a 120cm...

The other is twice a day, for 14 days. As you can see, it’s a lot of syringe feeding! This has me particularly worried because she seems...

    Aggressive Female + Shy Female

    I have had a female guinea pig named Macy for nearly two years, I got her by herself because my parents only let me get one at the time. Recently I got a baby guinea pig (female as well) and she is only two months. I was expecting it to be a bit difficult with Macy as she's been alone for so...

    Please Help Me Help Her!

    Hi, my name is Emily. A few months ago, I fell in love with a guinea pig at a pet store. I didn't get her then, but about a month later I went back to get bedding or something and she was still there. Long story short, I got her and love her so very very much. I have never had guinea pigs...
