Another reason to not have piggies and rabbits together

Just thought I would share this with everybody, cause I am not sure if this is well known or not, because it is not usually mentionned when somebody has a guinea pig with a rabbit.

Rabbits and rats harbor at least one of the bacteria known to cause pneumonia in guinea pigs. Therefore it is not wise to house these animals with or near guinea pigs.

I wrote to that site (will see if they respond) and asked them to change/add to their feeding section about guinea pigs....I hope they do.
