Can I Get Another Guinea Pig If I Already Have One?

Please do! If you have one guinea pig on its own then it will be very unhappy, even if you handle it every day. Guinea pigs are herd animals, and need a companion of the same species to talk to. It may be a bit hard at first to introduce the guinea pigs to one another and to wait for them to become friends, but your pets will thank you in the long run. For tips and advice on how to introduce guinea pigs to one another, then check out the Making Introductions section of our guide.
