Guinea pigs have highly developed hearing that is much more sensitive than humans. Their sensitive hearing allows them to rapidly identify incoming predators and escape quickly. Keep away your guinea pigs away from speakers, as they are loud noises can be quite irritating and frightening.
We brush Chanel and Grace with a soft brush or a metal comb every two days, to help remove some of the loose hair and to reduce shedding. Daily brushing is very important for long haired guinea pigs, like Patrice.
If you see flakey skin, redness, overgrown nails into foot pads, open sores, swelling or toes growing in a odd direction, contact a vet immediately! Keep your your guinea pig’s toes short and tidy!
