It’s Guinea Pig Awareness Week!

A special hello to our guinea pig pin up Vera and her babies for helping us to flag up Guinea Pig Awareness Week (GPAW). Vera belongs to our student nurse Amy, and has just had babies. These beautiful bundles in the photo are just a day old! Amy does an amazing job running a guinea pig rescue centre from home, and currently has more rescue guinea pigs expecting babies so will have her hands full at home, as well as at work, looking after lots of pets in need.

Coincidentally, the theme of this year’s GPAW is ‘Rescue and Re-home’ and is all about exploring what it means to be a guinea pig owner. Follow Guinea Pig Awareness Week on Facebook and Instagram for access to lots of guinea pig health and welfare tips and for heaps of photos of these fabulous pets! You can also find out more about GPAW in general at
