    Skin Problems Scabbed sore/mites

    Mites can flare up when they are under stress? Does it mean guinea pigs always have mites? Therefore, the medicine we use can only oppress mites and not cure it?

    Behavior Separation anxiety?

    In Sweden. However, the law mentions that there are exceptions, for example if the individual is aggressive and there is a risk of injuries. If the pig is happy on his own, there's no need to push his owner to get another one.
