What could be wrong with your 2 guinea pigs if they keep making a hacking kind of noise and when you give them their dry guinea pig food they seem to throw it up?
Throwing up is not a good thing, they are sick and if you can afford it, you need to take them to a vet. Guinea Pigs are considered an exotic pet, some vets do not treat them, so call around.
Are you giving your Guinea pigs Vitamin C drops in their water daily? This is very very important for their health. Thier bodies do not produce Vitamin C.
I hope you are not feeding them head lettuce this will make them very ill.
They love carrots, romaine lettuce, and baby spinach leaves.
Also, regarding their bedding material. I hope you are not using cedar chips; this can be toxic to small animals who are in an inclosed area. Pine chips are so much better. You can purchase the pine chips at Walmart.
P.S person above me, thanks for the tip! :o I never knew it mattered what kind of lettuce you gave them!!! (good thing I got my Guinea yesterday!) ;)
Making noise is a way for Guinea Pigs to express themselves. Depending on the noise they could be scared, joyful, nervous, or even aggressive. Knowing which noises mean which can give you a heads up as to what your guinea pig is feeling at the moment. In a way this is essentially their way of talking to you and other guinea pigs.
My guinea pig has started to make a wheezing kind of noise my aunt is a vet and got her some medicine what do you think it could be?
This means a guinea pig is experiencing pleasure, enjoyment, or excitement. You will hear this noise when you pet your guinea pig or feeding it a treat. If you hear this noise suddenly when you are not petting your guinea pig it is afraid or it feels threatened. They purr if they hear a loud noise: a telephone ring or a knock on the door.
Why is your guinea pig making noise I feed it when it makes a squeaking squealing noise because I thought that was them begging for food but then he still does it afterward?
Guinea pigs make lots of noises for many different reasons! Most of the time, they are just talking to each other--making cooing noises to comfort one another, small squeaks, etc. If a guinea pig is squealing when you walk by, then she might need attention--maybe the food is out or she is just lonely and wants to play.
Why is your guinea pig making a funny noise she sounds like she has a bad cough but it happens every time she breaths. you are starting to get worried?
well it depends what sound your guinea pigs make if it makes a weak squeaking noise everytime it breathes then you should probably worry because your guinea pig probably has a breathing disease/problem. it is a good time to take your guinea pig to a vet if this happens. [ if your guinea pig just makes a small whistling sound everytime it breathes it's fine ] ;)
There could be a number of causes. If the car is making the sound whilst stationary it could be a slipping fanbelt, or could be a problem with bearings. Water pump bearings are a common cause of such noise. If the noise is occurring only whilst travelling. It could be wheel bearings or rubbing brakes.
No, this is a rare thing to happen. Carrying a guinea pig a lot can be a good thing. Especially if you are careful. They love the attention. They should not be left in a noisy room for long periods or very close to the source of the music or noise as this could harm their hearing...just as yours can.
