Routinely weighing your guinea pig is a recommended part of guinea pig care. Since sudden weight loss and a decreased appetite are among the first noticeable symptoms of illness, regular weighing is good practice. Kitchen scales are the perfect size for guinea pigs and provide more accurate readings than the larger scales meant to be used by humans. The entire chase-grab-weigh-record process is quick and doesn't take more than a few minutes.
For the most part, Peaches and Revy worked hard to maintain their spots as the chunkiest pigs. In the meantime, the formerly little Abby-Roo lost her title as the smallest of the herd. That spot went to Truffle, who in true diva pig fashion, became even pickier with her food.
To another year of uninterrupted munching!
