During the entire process, Panini was fairly aggressive towards Pita but we figured it was just a dominance issue. We cleaned the entire cage and bathed both of them, but Panini is still being aggressive towards Pita.
It’s to the point where Pita doesn’t move from one corner all day and night. She won’t even let Pita use any of the hides. Panini will relentlessly bite her until she’s back in the corner.
What should I do? I love Panini but Pita is the priority and clearly is not happy.
Ditto bpatters. Read www.guinealynx.info/ovarian_cysts.html for more info. A guinea pig with ovarian cysts can have hormonal imbalances that affect behavior and result in a more aggressive female.

Having them checked out at the vet is a wonderful idea and will give you peace of mind if nothing is wrong. Has Panini ever shown any signs of mites? That can make a pig pretty uncomfortable and possibly aggressive toward other pigs. Then again, it might just be her personality.
