You give it time. Put it in a splint type thing, or take it to the vet, and give it time to heal. That's all I can say. Primary Advice: Take it to a vet. I don't want to be responsible for your Guinea Pig's leg to heal twisted or sideways.


You need to take the little guy to a vet as soon as possible do not try anything your self, if you try to heal the injury on your own you could make the broken bone worse and cause it to reform in the wrong position causing the guinea pigs leg to become usless. I wish you and your piggy well good luck. ;)

you should not try to heal your pig yourself.

Why can't guinea pigs spin on a hamster wheel?

Because their body is not built the same as a hamster. Their bodies are stout and compact, where as the hamster is much more limber and agile. The curvature of the guinea pig's spine does not allow them to bend the same direction as the hamster wheel and they can become caught in it or thrown from it. If they are injured by a hamster wheel it can be fatal. Guinea pigs will not heal well from broken bones.
