Question: My crested princess has eye boogies, she sneezed a couple times, and I saw little parasite bug things crawling through her crest top... does my baby have lice or ticks or something, is she sick??

    Sounds like lice. They are white and they move. They lay eggs which are black and adhere to the fur but do not move and very hard to see. Fleas jump and very viswible and mites don't really move and lice can be common in guinea pigs. Ask your vet what you can use that is safe for your little guy. I am concerned about what can be used and the dosage. You would also need to clean out all parts of cage,m food bowls, toys etc. You don't want a reinfestation.

I had a pair of male guinea pigs, one died now the other is alone. What suggestions do you have? Concerned with compatibility of introducing him to another one. He is two years old.

    Guinea pigs are pretty social. He will enjoy a companion, and should get along just fine after they get familiar with each other. I do suggest getting another male though, unless you want babies.

I had a Guinea Pig when I was younger and now my daughter has followed the same interest as I have in them. I got one about three months ago and I'm picking up another one this evening. They are a great pet for kids. I'm thinking of breeding the two.

    They are fun and enjoyable pets to have. If you wish to breed, you might want to think about where the little ones are going to go. It is hard to have a houseful.

We're getting guinea pigs soon, but should I get 2 boys or 2 girls?

    I'd go for two gals. The male urine is stronger and actually no major problem but boys will be boys.

    I currently have 4 males and 3 females. At a young age you will be able to house 2 males or 2 females together. However I found that as my cavies started to get to between 6 months and a year the males had to be seperated. This is fine if you don't mind cleaning two cages. Two of my three females still live together and get along just fine (they actually play with each other on a daily basis). Other than the issue dealing with the number of cages you intend to have you will not be able to place the two males together for any length of time unsupervised as they will fight for dominance (and they can be rather agressive I found out). So if cages are not an issue and you don't plan to have them together you can go either way but if you are getting them to play together and / or only want one cage go with the females.

    Just remember when you get your guinea pig leave it in the cage for three days by itself, let it get used to its new home and they like to be where everyone else is so they can see you every second they don't like to be alone I have a guinea pig and he is the sweetest thing his name is butter scotch and I love him but he is really fat he loves watermelon that's his favorite I hope you have fun with your new piggy.

Hi.! I really need some help with a guinea pig health problem!
It's an American guinea pig and it has his eyes swollen and closed!
Could anybody tell me what might the treatment be?
I feel sad because it can't see!....
I'd really appreciate a reply!
It dwells together with two other of it's own kind,which they're completely healthy!
It shows no other signs of illness...
What can I do to cure it?

    I feel sorry for your guinea pig. It's probably worth taking him to the vet because I don't know. I hope he's all right.

    Clean his eyes if it has stuff all over it And Take Him To The Vet. ( my guinea pig had that problem)
  • cayla - 2011-10-04
    You know it could just be pea eye but if it doesn't go away fast see a vet how long has it been like that?

    Take him to the vet. I don't know about Pea eye but upper respiratory infection and antibiotics or big time allergy so change the beeding. These little guys will do everything they can to ACT healthy and then just collapse so get him to the vet as soon as possible.

    Just keep nursing it. What I mean is hold it pet it feed it....if it doesn't get better in 3 days it's time for the vet
