Watertown, NY: Female guinea pig being rehomed due to failed pairing, "friendly and handable and loves treats." Poster attempted to pair her with a rabbit. GUINEA PIG LESSON: Guinea pigs and rabbits should not be paired together, guinea pigs are vulnerable to several common rabbit diseases, such as bordattela, they often lose in the competition for food, and rabbits' larger leg muscles can injure guinea pigs easily and unexpectedly.

* AAGP recommends quarantining any new guinea pigs
for 2-3 weeks and confirming the sex yourself.
Many sad accidents or "accidents" can be avoided this way. *
