Good evening everyone. We have just got two guinea pigs. They are both girls. One seems to keep suckling on the other ones bit and they are swollen. What do should I do?

Please can you give us more details. Is it mum and baby or just two sows? Where did you get them from, and how old are they? And when you say suckling on bits, do you mean the nipples or bottom end?

I think your best bet is to take them to the vet for a check up this week. You also need to double check their sex. Have a read of the guide below.
