GUINEA PIG MONTH- MARCH

Guinea pigs, or cavies, are sweet little pets to have. They are pretty hardy, generally easy going, and adorable! Because of their stoic exterior, many health issues are often diagnosed late and by then, the condition is usually already chronic.

Just with bunnies, guinea pigs require an annual health examination to get their eyes, skin, ears, teeth and abdomen checked. This is of greater importance in our sows (female guinea pigs) because of the high occurance of ovarian cysts and womb tumors that can develop in pigs as young as 1.5years old!
