Re: Hedgehogs and Guinea Pigs

I called my vet, and she said Hedgehogs and Guinea Pigs don't spread anything but Rabbits and Guinea Pigs may spread Bordetella (a respiratory disease) when they are together.

This is not true I keep my 13 hedgies and 6 guinea pigs in same room most cages are close. I had no issues I think they are referring to foot n mouth.

I've never heard of that but if you can let us know what the vet says, if it is true it's something I definitely want to make a note of

The same house, not the same cage. Holden has his own cage, I would never put him in a cage with another animal.

I will call the vet tomorrow and see if they know, I just heard this information from a friend so not a reliable source. Thanks Nikki

Do you mean the same house as in the same building or the same cage?

Re: Hedgehogs and Guinea Pigs

I have never heard of that before, but that doesn't mean its wrong. I have my two Skinny Pigs in the same room as my hedgies because since they have no hair they need warmer temps too. They've been in the same room for 8 months now and I haven't had any problems. You can call your vet and ask them, they should know.

Hedgehogs and Guinea Pigs

I have heard that if you put a hedgehog and guinea pig together, they can spread some sort of fatal disease? Does anyone know if this is true? I don't even have a guinea pig but my friend who is petsitting over Christmas has a guinea pig, and I want to make sure them being in the same house will be ok. I have seen a lot of youtube videos with hedgehogs and guinea pigs together Any advice would be great!
