The Omlet Guinea Pig Guide


Guinea pigs are fun, quirky companions for people of all ages. Though small, these little animals have bags of character and very distinct, individual personalities. If you’re thinking of bringing some guinea pigs into your home, you’ll be rewarded by conversational squeaks, affectionate nuzzling, and the comical sight of your pets devouring hay and vegetables like there’s no tomorrow. If you’re already an owner, then you’ll know firsthand what enjoyable and easy pets they are to look after.

I’ve had guinea pig for almost a year now and if anyone is thinking about getting one I would highly recommend to add to that I would really recommend a c&c cage with a 2 by 2 loft as if guinea pigs do not get along it is ideal. Personally I want my guinea pigs to be a comfortable as possible so I have a “guinea pig dad” fleece liner with a pocket. I found wish a good spot to buy little bits. If you put youre guinea pigs outside in a safe enclosure for half anhour every once in a while WHATCH OUT FOR HEDGEHOGS ! These cute little creatures are covered in fleas and could pass them on to your pigs this has happened to me and ended up costing me $35 as I had to bring them to the vet. If you have any queries on guinea pigs or anything to do with them contact me at maevetunney@gmail.com I will be happy to help thanks bye for now ????

I have had numerous guinea pigs for about 25 years. I have ‘Misty’ a female guinea pig for 4.5 years. She has a younger guinea pig friend in an adjacent cage. Over the last 12 months Misty has developed a tumour, or what appears to be a tumour in her backside. It is still growing and is now the size of a small orange. Misty is fine in herself and is eating sleeping weeing and pooing normally. She moves about her cage without any problem. Our vet says it may or may not be cancerous or that it may be a cyst. We know from experience guinea pigs do not react well to an anaesthetic. I have made a decision to monitor Misty ‘s condition continually and as soon as I feel she is starting to suffer pain I will take her back to the vet. I suspect I know what the vet will suggest! Has anybody else on the forum come across a similar problem? Thank you
