Hello! One of by boys is a year and a half old, and he has always been small. He has a very small lean body frame, that none of the other pigs have, including his parents. So, he isn't at a low weight... he is pretty average for his weight. He just will not gain! He has a huge appetite and eats everything, but he isn't gaining any weight? What do you guys think?

It's very hard to get an adult guinea pig to gain weight. If he's healthy, why are you trying to get him to?

The only other thing I can think of is to look into hyperthyroidism. You can find an article on it in the Records forum.
