Is Your Small Guinea Pig Healthy?

Dr Shachar Malka - Guinea Pig Vet in NY / NJ

Your guinea pig is a fun pet, but do you know the signs of a healthy animal? Birds, small animals like guinea pigs, and reptiles require specialized care. We discuss some of the things you should look out for when caring for your fluffy pal below.

Signs of problems in your pet

  • Tiredness

  • Not eating

  • Bowel changes like diarrhea or not going to the bathroom at all

  • Not drinking enough liquids
