What does it mean when a guinea pig chews loudly when you hold it? I know what chattering sounds like and this isn't it. It's almost like he's chewing on left over food, but I notice him grinding his teeth or chewing, whenever he's held.
Maybe he is eating left over food or maybe nervous? :hmm:
Recently me and my boyfriend separated a guinea from two others that his little brother owns because he was getting bullied. We now keep him with us by himself as when we tried to place him back in they were continuously fighting. My boyfriend is worried because he's making this sound and I...
My guinea pig, Ginger, makes a strange deep purr noise and shakes whenever I pet her back. She doesn’t seem agitated or irritated. I can’t tell if this noise is good or bad. Please help! Here is a link to the YouTube video of the noise.
I recently got a new guinea pig, she is very sweet and is doing really well, however, she is scared of the slightest noise. If I even slightly move my foot on the carpet she looks alert or runs back into her hidey. She is completely used to the sound of my voice and she feels safe enough to walk...
I have a question about my guinea pig Simba (2 years old). I can hear her breath sometimes when she sniffles. I already went to the vet (she is a guinea pig specialist) and she checked everything but couldn't find anything wrong. Today she had a really weird sound while...

I'm getting used to Teddy's, (my lone, almost blind, rescue boar's) sounds, movements, and behaviours, but I just wanted to check with you all what they actually mean to make sure I get it right.
He does a quiet teeth chattering sound when I bring him food or when I come see him and...
Hello there everyone!
For context, my guinea pigs are very young and small. I think they are almost 2 months old but they are indeed still tiny babies.
These are my first guinea pigs, so I am incredibly cautious in terms of messing things up.
So, the question: what do these sounds mean?
I have two piggies, a 2 year old female and a 3 year old male.
Lately, only occasionally, I have been hearing a new noise I have never heard them make before! I think it's the female making the noise, the only way I can describe it is like a chicken coo. It's a little like rumbling but...
