The Guinea Pig (unrelated to Pigs-the name may be due to this rodent's shrill squeal), native to South America, has been used as a domesticated food source for hundreds of years in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. Guinea Pigs have also been invaluable in research laboratories, where they have been used in fields such as nutrition, pathology, genetics, and toxicology. The Guinea Pig is also an excellent pet, much handled by children due to its gentleness and sociability. Cavia porcellus are not known in the wild (unless in a feral state), but domesticated Guinea Pigs are now found worldwide in captivity.

Asthma, allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis occurs frequently following sensitisation to Guinea Pig allergen. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
