    General Expanding my cage

    I have 2 adolescent boars, that are currently in a 2x4 cage. Since they've recently not been getting along I'm planning to rebuild their cage. I don't know whether to make a 2x6 cage, or a 3x5. A 3x5 will offer wider room to run laps, but a 2x6 will give them more room to get away from each...

    Behavior Teeth Chattering

    I won't be able to make the cage bigger right now, but I'm heading to Home Depot to get some coroplast and rebuild it this weekend if all goes well.

    Behavior Teeth Chattering

    I'm not really sure how to go about this. Whenever I put them near each other the chattering starts and doesn't stop until they can't see each other. How should I make it so they'll be okay with each other again?

    Behavior Teeth Chattering

    I put them together for a while and I watched to make sure nothing happened but they started fighting. I don't want to leave them unattended when they're acting aggressively towards each other, so I'm keeping them seperate for now. I'm thinking about expanding my cage to a 2x5 or 2x6 when...

    Behavior Teeth Chattering

    I have two male piggies named Ollie and Oscar. Ollie just turned 6 months and Oscar is about 3 months. I keep them in a 2 by 4 C&C cage with a 1x2 upper level. Two days ago I walked into my room (where they live), and I heard some teeth chattering. I sat down next to the cage to watch and make...

    Introductions How do I introduce 2 male guinea pigs? Should I?

    I've checked shelters near me, they didn't have any guinea pigs. I bought from a pet store both times. The shelters around me only have cats/dogs, so it was impossible for me to adopt them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Vision Is his eye okay?

    I just got this little one month old guinea pig named Oscar today, and while I was holding him I noticed his eye looked like this. There's a little crusty bits on the top and bottom of his eye. It looked wet underneath, but couldn't feel any wetness. He seems to want to halfway close it a lot...

    Introductions How do I introduce 2 male guinea pigs? Should I?

    I just built a 2 by 5 c&c cage which is about 10.5ft. Do you think that's okay? I read somewhere that that's suitable for 2 guinea pigs both male and female. I'm buying my guinea pig in just a couple hours, so this is really helpful at this time. Thank you!

    Fruit Fruits how often?

    Because fruits have natural sugars and guinea pigs have sensitive digestion systems, fruits should only be given as treats. However often you give your pigs treats is probably how often you should give them fruit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Dominance Was this the right thing to do? Dominant baby?

    I can't answer for a fact, but Carl establishing dominance over domino just might be because of their personalities, or domino thinks this is normal because he's never had a friend before. To make sure there's no more complications, make sure your cage is big enough for both boys to go to...

    Introductions How do I introduce 2 male guinea pigs? Should I?

    I have a single guinea pig I got two months ago. I decided that it'd be best to get him a cage mate, so he won't be lonely when I'm gone. The only thing I'm nervous about is two males. I've heard some bad stories about males together, but I have no other option. All animal clinics near me won't...

    Behavior Guinea Pig is skittish in cage, comfortable outside.

    I usually have to pick up the hideaway and place it somewhere (like on my bed) and once he crawls out I pick him up.

    Behavior Guinea Pig is skittish in cage, comfortable outside.

    I have a single guinea pig named Ollie (I'm getting another one in just about a week). When I go to pick him up from his cage, he runs around and hides from me, acting like I am a horrible monster. When I finally get him out, he seems fine. He happily squeaks and sometimes even takes a nap on...
