losing hair

well first of all im new to this forum so **** o to everyone. i just got my fiorst two guinea pigs about a month ago. there twin sisters. and i noticed that they seem to be lossing alot of hair all of the sudden. like they dont have bald sptos or anythign but when you petting them and such quite a bit falls off. now i just wondered is this normall do they shed some in the spring or do they just normally lose alot of hair. im just hoping that theres nothing wrong. well thanks

I have noticed as the seasons change my pigs shed a bit more than normal. If you are not seeing visible bald spots I wouldn't be to worried. I have one pig that is a stress shedder, whenever you touch her she gets stressed and therefore sheds. You will figure it out after some time.

Good luck.

May i suggest getting a guineapig grooming kit and gently brushing her to get the loose hair?

It's a great way to bond with your guineapigs as well
