Do I Need a Friend?

Guinea pigs are social animals. They do well when kept in pairs or groups that have been raised together. The pair doesn't necessarily have to be a mated pair, as two males get along well together, as do two females.

Handle with Care

Generally, guinea pigs are non-aggressive animals that rarely bite or scratch when handled.Instead, they may typically voice their protest with a high-pitched squeal.When handling, place one hand under the guinea pig’s chest and abdomen, while the other hand supports the hindquarters.
