Guinea pigs' ears tend to get redder when the guinea pig is excited about something or is too warm. Most of the time, it's nothing to worry about. However, a fever can cause the ears to be red, too. If fever is present, other symptoms are likely to show up shortly. Keep an eye out for discharge from the nose or eyes, lethargy, or loss of appetite. If no other symptoms appear, you probably have nothing to worry about. If you have more questions about this, just let me know by clicking on REPLY.
