Signs of stress include refusing to exit of enclosed spaces, sleeping more than usual, appearing constantly nervous or irritabile, not wanting to be handled, poor appetite and excessive hair loss. The best way to prevent stress is to provide a guinea pig with a comfortable enclosure located in a quiet area of the house. Keep larger pets away from the guinea pigs’ enclosure. Supervise children when they handle your guinea pig, and make sure you give the guinea pig adequate time to eat, sleep and relax.
Chanel and Grace wheek at the sounds of vegetables being cut, taps turning on and plastic bags rustling!
We cut their nails every two months, and comb their hair every day!
Chanel and Grace were both adopted as their owners were unable to take care of them anymore.
Mostly Chanel and Grace get along, but they like their own space! They occasionally fluff up their hair and chatter their teeth to tell the other guinea pig that they are not pleased that they are sitting on THEIR mattress!
