    Conditions A question on red eye guinea pig

    I understand guinea pigs do not have good vision. But they have strong smelling and hearing? What about red eyed piggies? One of my guinea pig is blonde and white and he has red eyes.

    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?

    I earlier post a thread here, asking about humping because my boys have been humping each other since yesterday. They are from a rescue and according to them, have been housed together a long time. And people on this forum say it's ok, they are fighting for territory and it's safe. I check...

    Skin Problems First time having a guinea pig

    I came to understand it is not good to buy from a pet store. They don't give a damn on the animals. They treated them like objects. My pig doesn't scratch himself and has a bald spot. He doesn't even move that much perhaps he is still scared of us and the new environment. Pet store told me...

    Skin Problems First time having a guinea pig

    Is room temperature of 61 degree too cold for him? Is pine bedding toxic to him? Does he have to consume timothy hay? I have been feeding him green bell peppers, apple, carrot and orange. Is it ok or too much in sugar? Sorry for so many questions, but I am very lost now. Thanks

    Skin Problems First time having a guinea pig

    I got my 3 months old guinea pig yesterday and everything was well. He is shy perhaps due to the new environment. I am also doing more and more research on keeping him healthy and happy. However, just a couple hours ago, I found a bald spot in between his left ear and eye. The right side is...
