Guinea Pig Pregnancy

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

Information on guinea pig pregnancy, chicks and eggs in aviaries and other small animal births can be found on most pet sites along with a photo collection. Pregnant saws can suffer from toxemia. This serious condition usually occurs in overweight sows, especially when they are pregnant for the first or second time. The first signs of this problem include inappetence, depression, weakness, reluctance to move, incoordination, difficulty breathing, coma and death. Some sows may show no signs and suddenly die. Sometimes, the fetus is aborted due to stress or other causes. However, the species is more prone to heat related death in the latter stages of pregnancy, so it is recommended to supply a pregnant female with a lot of care.

Guinea Pig Pregnancy

aviaries, photo

It is important to know that a female cavy should be first bred before 7 months of age. If the first breeding is delayed beyond this time, serious problems with delivery may occur. The species has a gestation period of 62 to 70 days. Females with a shorter period tend to have a large litter. The average litter size is about 2-5 babies and complications occur rarely. The babies are born little and weigh not more that 70-100 grams. The young are relatively mature at birth; they are unusually large and fully furred, and can walk about. Newborn cavies also have teeth and open eyes at this time. Information on guinea pig pregnancy, chicks and eggs in aviaries and other small animal births can be found on most pet sites along with a photo collection.
