    Guinea Pig Making Weird Gurgling Noises?

    My three year old guinea pig just started making some odd noises about five minutes ago. It sounded like his stomach was grumbling but he's never made noises like this before. When I walked up to his cage to investigate he made an odd whining noise. I assumed that he was hungry so I gave him...

    Strange Noises When Cleaning?

    Ive been meaning to join this website for a while but every issue I've had with my piggies has been resolved but not this one, I'm unsure about a noise my guinea pigs are making when they clean themselves. It's kind of like a bubbling noise but it's not, it's hard to explain, first only Honey...
