Recommended Veterinarians

Guinea pigs are prey animals so they hide illness. By the time they start to show symptoms, they are in need of immediate, urgent care.  Having a qualified, trusted veterinarian before you need one is extremely important. 

Veterinarians are often booked weeks in advance and it can be very difficult to get an appointment, especially if you're a new patient. If the vet's office has already established you as a patient, they are more likely to get your guinea pig care when they need it the most.

We recommend you
 make an appointment with a vet for a well-being check-up or  an introductory check-up shortly after bringing your new guinea pigs home.  We also highly recommend having at least one backup vet.

Below you'll find a list of guinea pig veterinarians located throughout Southern California.
