LINKS - Behavior: "Spooked" Guinea Pigs

A guinea pig that suddenly starts avoiding a certain part the their cage (such as the hayloft) is often referred to as "spooked". The pig acts terrified, and there may not be any sign or indication of what has scared them.

Cleaning the entire cage - including toys, cozies, Pigloos, dishes - often helps. Weighing daily will ensure that the guinea pig is eating properly.

A visit to the vet may also rule out any potential medical problems.
