    Exercise Lazy, Antisocial Guinea Pigs

    So I have two guinea pigs, both females just over one year old. I'm a little concerned about their activity level. After doing a fair amount of research, I've come to the conclusion that guinea pigs are generally very social, active little critters. Not mine. They sit in separate cages (due to...

    Skin Problems Dry, Flaky Skin

    My guinea pig is having issues with her skin. I live in one of the driest states in the US. So of course every winter, we pull out the lotion. This is my pigs' first winter, so I had no idea they'd react this way. Well, actually, it's just one of them. My older pig is 100% ok. She has shown...

    I have two guinea pigs- one is 10 months old, the other is 7 months. The younger one has always been more reserved and is not naturally becoming less terrified of me like my other pig- she spends most of her time hiding from me. I don't know if that has anything to do with this topic, but I...

    Sick Sick Pig: Bring One or Both?

    Just this morning I discovered one of my pigs (Valentine) has dried mucus in her nose. I am aware that this is very likely a URI, so I'm taking her to the vet either today or tomorrow ASAP. However, I am wondering if I should bring in my other guinea pig (Willow). Willow appears healthy and does...

    Behavior Quiet When Hand On Head

    I Google almost everything about my pigs, because I care a lot about them (like all good owners do), and I don't want to do anything wrong. Recently I have just become really curious about a certain behavior both my pigs do, so I Googled it. I couldn't find anything. I then created this account...
