Yes they do. If not the nails will grow long and painfully twisted. In most cases it will also impair the way a piggie walks. Please cut your piggies' nails. also if you don't cut the nails the would curl and if he/she walked the nail would snatch off and fall with drips of blood and squeels. help your guinea pig by cutting its toenail you can just use a human nail cutter too.
