Guinea Pig

A guinea pig needs

  • To be with other guinea pigs
  • Fresh food and fresh clean water every day and something to gnaw on
  • A big hutch to live in, with a room for sleeping
  • A home to be kept clean and tidy
  • To be brushed every day if it has long hair
  • Soft straw and wood shavings for beddings
  • A mixture of hay, cereal and washed fruit and fresh vegetables
  • A hutch to be kept somewhere inside when it is cold, and in the shade when it is hot and sunny
  • To be looked after at holiday times
  • To be handled with care

Remember if your pet is showing unusual symptoms bring it to your local vet.
