We do not recommend Rabbits and Guinea Pigs together – Melbourne Vet advice

Melbourne Rabbit Clinic

Guinea Pigs and Rabbits should not be put together

We do not recommend rabbits and guinea pigs together for the following reasons:

  • Rabbits may hog the food
  • Rabbits may bully the guinea pigs.
  • Guinea pigs can cause severe eye injuries to rabbits.
  • Rabbits carry a bacteria Bordetella that is lethal to guinea pigs
  • They require different feeding regimes
  • Rabbits talk ‘rabbit’ with rabbits and guinea pigs talk ‘pig’ with guinea pigs.

Guinea pigs rarely cohabit well with other species. If you have indoor dogs and cats you need to a secure enclosure.

The Melbourne Rabbit Clinic is the first and only hospital in Australia to treat rabbits and guinea pigs exclusively.

Melbourne Rabbit Clinic have an absolute passion for rabbits and guinea pigs offering high quality veterinary care especially tailored for Rabbits and Guinea Pigs.
