What are the chances my guinea pig will live through her pregnancy?
I got a male guinea pig from a lady that said he had been fixed before she got him. I'm not sure if she really thought this or was just telling me whatever so that I would take her guinea pig.The day after I brought him home I went and bought a female guinea pig since he was fixed I thought it would be ok for the two of them to be together. When I introduced them my male was mounting her but I read online that this is natural and males will do this even with other males so I didn't think that I should be concerned. Now I'm not so sure. The female had a white goop in "that area". I read online about this as well and found that this can mean your guinea pigs have mated. Is this true? I'm not sure of the females age but I'm guessing she's around four or five weeks old. If she is pregnant what are the chances she'll live through the birth? I hear guinea pigs have a hard time with pregnancy any way and she's really young so I don't know what to do if she is pregnant. I'm not really sure what to do about the whole situation actually. I'm not even sure that she is pregnant since this was only a day or two ago but if she is what do I do?!
