Caring for your Guinea Pig

Guinea Pigs are small, sociable, 'chatty' rodents; owning and caring for them can be very rewarding and a big responsibility. If you own one or more it is important you know how to take good care of them.

Caring for your Guinea Pig

Guinea pigs are a prey species. Therefore they often don't show overt signs of illness until they are severely unwell. Subtle changes in behaviour can indicate that your guinea pig may benefit from a health check from the vet. For example, if you notice your guinea pig is not eating as much as normal, not passing as many droppings, not as playful or active, not willing to interact with you or their companions or have a messy bottom/loose droppings then we would recommend a consultation with one of our vets.
