My guinea pig makes some weird noise when he breathes it happens once in a while, I took him to the vet recently and they haven’t told me anything? I have a video of him making the noise if I could send it to someone and if you guys could tell me what it is? It would mean a lot to me!

My guinea pig keeps chewing on his cage, he is next to a female guinea that is on a separate cage. His chewing is getting quite excessive, wondering what would be a good solution? Thank you

My Guinea pig flinches every time I pet it but I’m always super nice to it. I got it from the pet store. Do you think they abused it?

My guinea pig is 6 and alone as his brother died last year and every winter we’ve kept him in our porch as it’s warmer than outside but not as warm as inside. Would bringing him inside the house this winter cause him any harm (because he’s quite old)?
