How can a guinea pig be sexed?

A guinea pig can be sexed from a very young age, but because of its small genitals we have to look twice or even wait one more month. Let’s explain how it is done.

We put our fingers in the superior part, leaving the genitals in the middle. We press down a little, so the genital can be seen. Only if it comes out, we can decide if it´s a male or a female. The genitals of a male are I shaped, and those of a female are Y shaped.

Possible difficulties

If our pet is very stressed because she/he doesn’t like this process, it´s very possible that we can´t see anything because of the oppression that it might cause to it. If it’s an adult guinea pig maybe it will be more difficult to observe it because of the skin folded or the nerves.

There is another way you can check the sex of your guinea pig. It involves passing a finger along the animal´s genitals and if we notice a long shape that is harder than the rest of the area, then it´s a male.

Our veterinarian Antonio will show it to you. Let’s have a look!
