We just got two peruvian guinea pigs, and a great new hutch. If anyone finds a lot of hay, I'll pay you back! Man they eat a lot... and poop a lot too!

Why can't male and female guinea pigs stay in the same cage.

    If you want to breed them, be sure to do the proper research or you could end up killing your female. If you are unsure of your female's age and whether or not she has given birth before, STOP! She NEEDS to have had at least one litter before she is 6-9 months old. Giving birth before this time permanently breaks a ridge of cartilage that connects the front of her pelvis, opening the birth canal in the process. If this cartilage is NOT broken by the age above, it will calcify (harden into bone). If she gets pregnant after this happens, she will not be able to give birth and you will NEED to take her to a veteranarian who specializes in small animals when she goes into labor. They will perform a Ceaserian Section (better known as a C-Section) on her to remove the babies, hopefully alive. If the operation is successful, you still have a lot to worry about! Guinea Pigs react poorly to anesthesia and 10 to 30 percent will die within a few days of going under the knife.

    I lost my guinea pig Caramel back in November because of anesthesia complications. She woke me up with her labor squeals one morning, having her second litter of babies. Unfortunately, her babies were still-born and her labor was unusually difficult, lasting well over four hours. Four babies came out, but she had one more baby in her when her labor stopped. I took her in to see the vet, and they tried to re-induce labor using an oxytocin injection. All that managed to help her give birth to was a placenta. So they put her under and managed to work the baby out from the outside. I was so happy my girl was going to live! Unfortunately, she only lasted until the next night, when she died in my arms...

Guinea pigs are such great pets! They like to be cuddled, held and nurtured. If you especially get them as a baby they become nice if your nice to them. They don't bite unless your mean to them. Now I'm a cavy fanatic!

Me and my fiance just got an abyssianin guinea pig and he is the greatest pet ever. We did have a guinea pig previously, but he passed away last Wednesday morning at 3:03 am. I miss him dearly, his name was Eddie Guerrero Stewart. Our new little guys is Christopher Benoit JR. He is 4 weeks old, his mum passed away when he was 3 weeks old. He is very talkative and loves loads of attention. He loves watching wrestling, playing video games with us, and loves and I mean loves Metallica, lol. He is a very active little man, and loves his attention and his little towel for sleeping.

I have one abbysinian guinea pig named betty and she is so cute. She is so sweet, I've only had her for 3 days and she is already getting used to me. She loves to eat green peppers. I love her so much, she is orange and white. Abbysinians are adorable!
