    Question Guinea Pig Teething?

    Hi,
    just wanted to know if my guinea pig is teething.
    I have a new guinea pig as replacement companion for my other guinea pig Maisy, who's first companion Pippa died early January.
    So here is Millie, a now three month old pig.
    She has recently been nibbling me and my dad aggresively and today drew blood.
    I am doing the 'towel trick' as I type.
    So is she teething or what?

    Please help!!Click image for larger version.

    Some guinea pigs just like to nibble, Mocha's favorite food is fingers! Guinea pigs teeth through there entire lives, they need to, or their molars will get long and they will develop malocclusion. Just make sure you give her lots of hay for her to chomp on!

    Haha I guess I do put plenty hay but the culprit of it vanishing everyday must be MAISY then! Is the towel trick the right thing to do though?

    I have to use the towel trick to get Mochas' nails done, it definitely works. I think it's the right thing to do if it avoids you getting chomped.
