Hi, I'm new to this whole taking care of guinea pigs, but I've done a lot of research before bringing home my new pets. I picked them up from someone who needed to re-home them and they told me that they were bonded, but the day after bringing them home i noticed that they were, well it looked like they were fighting. I looked up everything they were doing and its said that they could be bonding so i left them alone and let them try to work things out naturally. Over the course of the night my black american crest* his name is Buster (i believe that is his breed) kept squealing and whining and just running away from the brown and white american guinea pig* his name is Author. So i did more search and once again it said it was part of the bonding process, so i left the alone to bond but i still kept an eye out because i was scared for Buster my american crest. A few minutes in and the Author is aggressively humming Buster,( i kept thinking that Buster was a girl, because of how aggressive it was) there was chatter with the teeth from Author when Buster ran away, and as i was watching i noticed blood coming out of Buster behind at first i thought i saw wrong because he raw away so fast, but after i confirmed it the second time i took Buster out of the cage and since i thought they were bonded and would get along i didn't have a spare cage for Buster so i let him roam around my room until i found a box he could stay in for the night. I was so scared something could of happened to Buster because he was bleeding and i couldn't take him to the vet late at night, all i could do was try to see how bad his butt was, it wasn't bad as i thought it took about a few seconds for him to relax and within those few seconds he stopped bleeding he had a slight tear in his anus. In the same night my sister told me to put them back together since they bother calmed down, so i did butt i was too scared Buster was going to get an even worse injury when Author came up to hump him again it might of been the wrong move but these are my first pair of guineas and i don't want to have to get a new one to replace the other and so far it seems i have to get ride of Author if there is a away i can keep them both please let me know i already feel in love with them at first sight. But if there is no other option, i'll have to do what i have to keep them both safe.
