    Hi! Just a quick question: This is my 7 month old female, Coconut. Judging by her pictures, does she seem a bit fat? I weighed her using a bathroom scale yesterday by weighing myself, then weighing myself+Coconut together and doing the math. Her weight: 1.5 lbs. which is (according to Google) 0.680389 kg. I feed Unlimited oxbow hay, 1/8 cup oxbow pellets, and 1 cup of salad (including 1/2 baby carrot) every day. She also gets floor time everyday! But she still seems a bit chubby. Thanks to anyone who answers!

    She looks fine to me. Nice and potato shaped like my boys!

    Thanks, just checking! In some positions she looks more like a ball with legs and and floppy ears than a Guinea pig (potato).

    Nothing wrong with "womanly curves"

    I was concerned my piggie was fat but then she fell ill and I was really glad she had the weight to take her through the illness. She's now better and piling it back on, as my vet said to me, they're meant to be chubby little creatures!
