Do I Need To Give My Guinea Pigs Vaccinations?

Unlike dogs, cats and rabbits, most people think that guinea pigs do not need vaccinations against common diseases. Vet surgeries are unlikely to offer vaccinations for guinea pigs, as they don’t need to be safeguarded against diseases like myxomatosis.

Guinea pigs don't really need vaccinations

Instead of vaccinating your pets, you should give them weekly health checks and make sure they have lots of vitamin C in their diet. Vaccination isn't the only way to keep your pets fit and healthy!

Do i need to vaccinate my guinea pig for plague

I think that guinea pigs shouldn’t be vaccinated if they are given the right healthcare

Stephanie, 2 May 2017

That's not fair guinea pigs deserve to be vaccinated against these common diseases they are apart of people's families and I don't know about other people but as soon as I get my pet guinea pig I'm having it neutered and vaccinated they deserve a good life like dogs and cats and I don't need to be worried all the time people who don't vaccinate they're animals are fools and stupid and I don't agree that guinea pigs don't need it maybe they don't but that be a plus from Stephanie franche
