It isn’t normal for a guinea pig to kill another one, especially if you separate them. If that doesn’t work, call the vet.

Can 2 guinea pigs be together?
Guinea pigs are very sociable creatures and need to live in pairs or small groups, as they would in the wild. We recommend always having two or more guinea pigs together, with safe access to each other.
Do guinea pigs eat each others hair?
One of the most common causes for hair loss is due to barbering, a behavior by which guinea pigs will chew or tear their own or each other’s hair off as a result of conflicts with other animals.
Are my guinea pigs fighting or playing?
Humping, light chasing, and sniffing are all signs that your guinea pigs are playing. Loud teeth chatter and rearing up on the hind legs is a sign of fighting. Other signs of fighting include: circling each other, biting, lunging at each other, and any other activity that could be interpreted as a fight.
If you see any of these signs, it’s a good idea to call your vet right away. If you’re not sure what’s going on, you can also call the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) at 1-800-SPCA-HELP (4357) or visit their website at www.hsus.org.
Why is my guinea pig biting my other guinea pig?
Biting and nibbling are their means of communication. As they play, they may bite each other’s hair or ears. If the biting is accompanied by aggressive behavior, then your piggies should be put down. Biting is not a sign of aggression. It is simply a way of communicating with one another. If you want to play, you can do so without biting.
Why do guinea pigs purr?
The sound of a cat’s purr may make your guinea pig seem more like a cat. A deep, relaxed one means your pig is content, while a higher pitched one is more likely to be annoying. A squeak is a high pitched sound that can be heard from a distance.
It is often used as a warning or warning that something bad is about to happen. This sound may be used to warn of an impending attack, or to alert you to the presence of a predator in the area.
What does guinea pig fighting look like?
Your guinea pig may not be getting along if they are acting aggressively towards each other. Some signs to distinguish fighting behavior are biting with harmful intent, drawing blood, using full force to lunge at other guinea pigs, loud aggressive teeth chattering, and aggressive lunging.
Is it better to have 2 male or 2 female guinea pigs?
Two females (sows) will live happily together, as will two males (boars) if they are siblings. In the wild, boar can be found in all parts of Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. They are also found as far north as the Arctic Circle.
Boars are omnivorous and will eat almost anything they can get their mouths on, including carrion, insects, birds, reptiles, small mammals, fish, amphibians, and even birds of prey such as owls and falcons. Their diet is also varied, depending on the type of food they have access to.
How do guinea pigs show dominance?
The calm and peaceful pigs are great for pets. They go through the same process of dominance as any other animal. Raising fur, swaying hips and rubbing cheeks are some of the behaviors. Sometimes they can run their noses as if they are looking for a hidden source of food.
Guinea pigs can be trained to sit, lie down, roll over, and even stand on their hind legs. They can also be taught to jump up and down on command. Pig is one of the most popular pets in the United States. These characteristics include a large head, long snout, large eyes, small ears, short legs and a short tail.
Some of these characteristics are inherited from their mother, while others are passed down from the father. This is why it is so important to have a good relationship with your Guinea pig’s mother. If you do not have one, you will not be able to raise a healthy, happy and healthy pet.
