Care of Guinea Pigs. Introduction. Guinea pig is the common name for a cavy. Cavy is short for the species name Cavia Porcellus. The guinea pig neither comes. Guinea pigs live for around four to eight years, so their care is a long-term commitment. Males are known as boars and females are called sows. Guinea. Guinea Pigs. The guinea pig or cavy (pronounced kay-vee) is a member of the rodent family, closely related to the chinchilla and the porcupine.
To insure that the ultrasound procedure did not cause significant stress, salivary cortisol was collected both before and after each observation. Measures of fetal spontaneous movement and behavioral state were quantified from video recordings from week 3 through the last week before birth.
Results from prenatal quantification of Interlimb Movement Synchrony and state organization reveal guinea pig fetal development to be strikingly similar to that previously reported for other rodents and preterm human infants.
Salivary cortisol readings taken before and after sonography did not differ at any observation time point. These results suggest this model holds translational promise for studying the prenatal mechanisms of neurobehavioral development, including those that may result from adverse events.
Because the guinea pig is a highly social mammal with a wide range of socially oriented vocalizations, this model may also have utility for studying the prenatal origins and trajectories of developmental disabilities with social-emotional components, such as autism.

Introduction Recent interest in delayed effects from early insults, known as Prenatal Programming,[ 1 ] Developmental Origins,[ 2 ] or Fetal Basis of Adult Disease, suggests a need for longitudinal models that include prenatal observations of behavior. These models would not only link early changes in behavioral development with postnatal outcomes, but could also provide important information about mechanisms that underlie the early etiology of these phenomena.
More importantly, models that systematically explore the ontogeny of prenatal behavior after insult would also provide translational information for the development of prenatal diagnostics.
Recent advances in ultrasound technology, however, have made possible the addition of longitudinal study with smaller mammals such as guinea pigs.

This chapter, The Piggie Preliminaries, is full of great tips for first-time guinea pig owners and owners-to-be. Small quantities of fruits can be fed once or twice a week at most. This was my situation 8 years ago, and might be yours right now. This should be available in unlimited quantities, along with fresh water.
