Vets and GPAW


Get involved with Guinea Pig Awareness Week

Guinea Pig Awareness Week is here to help educate guinea pig owners about their guinea pigs’ five welfare needs. Endorsed by the British Veterinary Association and the British Small Animal Veterinary Association, the week is also supported by our four charity partners, Blue Cross, PDSA, RSPCA, and Wood Green.

GPAW will be back in 2022. You can register for our reminders below.
