The Omlet Guinea Pig Guide

Guinea pigs are fun, quirky companions for people of all ages. Though small, these little animals have bags of character and very distinct, individual personalities. If you’re thinking of bringing some guinea pigs into your home, you’ll be rewarded by conversational squeaks, affectionate nuzzling, and the comical sight of your pets devouring hay and vegetables like there’s no tomorrow. If you’re already an owner, then you’ll know firsthand what enjoyable and easy pets they are to look after.

To anyone who's looking to buy a guinea pig please buy two guinea pigs as they are social animals. My eldest guinea pigs are currently 8 years old and I have owned guinea pigs for over 10 years. Don't bathe you guinea pigs unless advised buy you vet as there skin is very sensitive. Make sure you feeding them 75% hay 10% pellets and the rest veggies that supplement vitamin c please do you research before buying a pet. Guinea pigs can be timid but if you spend time with them they are friendly creatures.

Guinea pigs need a least one friend for theyre here animals. They do not like to be in water, so please no pools. They need vitamin c for they dont produce it. Please provide via food and not suppliment. Feed them 70% hay 10% pellets and rest fresh veggies.

Ioulita, 2 March 2021

Do they like being bathed? If yes would it be nice to have a little paddle pool in the cage for it?
