Quarantine

 

If you own more than one guinea pig or have other pets, it is important to prevent disease or bacteria from spreading by keeping a sick animal isolated from other pets until he is given a clean bill of health by your vet.

 

This is also necessary when adding a new animal to your collection, regardless of how good his former home was.

Take your newly acquired pet to the vet for a thorough checkup before introducing him to his cagemates!
