My guinea pig's neck is deformed was since last night. His head sits at angle towards the ceiling and he walks around like that. Could he have sufferd a stroke? or could the other guinea pig have stepped on it?

    Hi kaela,
    It does sound as if he's had a stroke. Many guinea pigs can recover from this but you will need to visit a vet to get him checked out, and keep a close eye on him for a while.

Oh my, I have 45 guinea pigs. It would take to long to name them all though, so I will name five. These are recently born babies; Dart, gail, maisey, polly, and sammy. They are aborable! I'm so thankful for this website. Here are all my pets - okay; 45 guinea pigs, 7 dogs, 4 cats, 7 bettas, 3 lamas, 2 horses, and 5 parrots. I don't sell my guinea pigs when they are babies because I just can't bare to part with them. I enjoy all animals, and think skinny pigs are still adorable no matter what people say. Thanks Animal-World, for all you do!!!

I was given a guinea pig because the previous owner couldn't keep it. She's adorable and has a personality to her. I recently just got another one, she's smaller. Both great girls.

    And how much are you selling them for? I have one but she's lonely so I'm trying to find her another friend? How old are they?

I have two piggies named Lenny and Kerby. Sadly Lenny has a lump on his neck, but when you touch it it doesn't seem to hurt him and you can move it. I'm scared it might be a tumor. So how can you tell if your piggie has a tumor or something else? Besides that they are a joy, they get along fine now and are super cute!

I currently have 2 guinea pigs. LuLu is a female albino. Slugo is a male albino. LuLu is due to have babies in the middle of November. Slugo is sensitive, he always runs when you enter the room. LuLu just goes with the flow. I will post again when she has her babies!

I just got my guinea pig! She is a she of course so I named her Sara! She is the cutest guinea pig ever! She is a woodsy brown with a white stripe in the middle of her nose and a small white tuft on her forehead and one white leg! She is only two months old and she is already letting us hold her and play with her! And she is smart! She never poops outside of her cage! Thanks for all of the excellent tips animal world! I owe you a huge thanks! See ya next time! I really do hope to come to you again with questions. So until next time, Keep up the good work!
Sincerely
James Miller

My piggy Milli who I adopted from a friend is just loving her new diet from this site! Milli says a BIG thank you for making her day and finding her new favorite time of day! Putting vitamin C and the other foods you suggested in her toys has kept her very busy inside the cage.
