Hi, i have 1 guinea pig that likes to stand on his back legs whenever I bring vegetables for them and today I saw him standing and fall on his back. I'm not sure if this behavior can cause his back to injure or not. :(

Kinda worry. Let me know if you have same behavior guinea pig. šŸ½

I have had a couple.of.my boys do that same thing. They always seem to have an embarrassed "you didn't see that" look on their face. It never seemed to hurt anything more than their "piggy pride". As long as he didn't have a direct fall on his back, as in being dropped, I wouldn't worry much.

Just keep an eye on him for any possible signs of injury.

Yeaa.. I think it's so cute on his face when he fall and immediate wake up.. But at the same time just worry since their back is kind of fragile..
But he fall on fleece pad.. I hope this shouldn't create anything bad..

Thanks for sharing your experience. :)
