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.

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