One thing to note:  guinea pigs and rabbits should not be eating the same food.  Guinea pigs need a food supplemented with Vitamin C, while rabbits do not.  If he's been getting only rabbit food, your piggy may be experiencing a vitamin deficiency.  Get him to a small animal vet AT ONCE!

Os Coelhos em geral são portadores da bactéria Bordetella bronchiseptica sem demonstrar sinais de doença, ao passo que para os porquinhos da India (Cobaias) essa bactéria é potencialmente fatal. Conclusão não se deve criar porquinhos da india junto com coelho.

I can answer all questions regarding guinea pig selection, breeding, care, housing, showing, and minor medical needs. I am especially knowledgeable in the teddy and teddy satin breeds, although I have experience with all other breeds as well.


I have kept guinea pigs as pets for over twelve years. As well, I have been a breeder and taken guinea pigs/cavies to shows. I have had several guinea pigs become ARCBA (American Rabbit and Cavy Breeders Association) grand champions.

I belong to the ARCBA.
