Keeping your guinea pig healthy is a must. Guinea pigs are quite sturdy animals but if they become sick, with my experience of it they, must have immediate attention or they will become weak and will then die.

Keeping a good healthy guinea pig

If your guinea pig does get sick you should contact your vet straight away. The earlier the illness is noticed the more chance of recovery your guinea pig has. But from experience, even if your guinea pigs are well cared for or the illness is noticed early sometime they don't always pull through. After the illness or infection has passed, disinfect everything to make sure no other guinea pigs or guinea pig doesn't get sick to. If your guinea pig has bright eyes, good coat, robust and hasn't got discharge coming from nose or eyes they are most likely healthy.
