Dealing with the loss of your guinea pig is unfortunately an inevitable thing we as guinea pig owners have to deal with at some point in the future. With a general lifespan of 5-7 years, guinea pigs have a shorter life than most other larger pets such as cats and dogs.
Most people truly love their piggies so it’s just as hard losing a guinea pig as it is any other pet.
This is great video by KeKe10101000 on Youtube – I’m not too sure if she is a qualified counselor, but she presents some good thoughts on dealing with any sort of pet loss…
GuineaPigCare.com.au was created to pass on the many lessons I've learned owning and caring for guinea pigs since 2007. If it helps just a few guinea pigs in the world live a happier and healthier life, then the site has done it's job. Wishing all animals in the world... The true respect they deserve.
