feed them seeds that you can buy at almost any walmart, although they might smell bad you should only bathe them once or twice a year and use any child’s shampoo, they love hay, need water all day when the bottle is out fill it, take them out and let them run around for 5minuets for exercise or they will gain to much weight, change their bedding about once every two weeks.Hope this helped
My first answer would be to get two from the same litter and same sex if possible as they prefer company due to living in herds.Please look up as much info on the net as you possibly can to give you what you need to prepare for and what care is required – I have two 15 week old brothers and last night, adopted two six week old brothers from a rescue shelter, they cannot be in the same cage/floorpen so my home has now become theirs not mine anymore. it is all go here lol. Make sure you have lots of time, space and are dedicated before you commit to anything.I have genuinely spent over £600.00 on things and spend around £8.00 per week on their fresh food, the dry pellets I buy monthly so work your budget out as well !!cavyspirit.com/care.htmjackiesguineapiggies.com/piggycare.htmlpetwebsite.com/guinea_pigs/guinea_pig_care.htmYou will also get some great tips on here as I found as people always offer useful opinions/advice on pets.*Catherine* the budget for your food is roughly what I spend on veg and treats alone per month lol not including pellets. How can you feed a GP on less than £1.00 per week ?
Guinea pigs should always be kept in pairs or groups(same sex or altered) indoors, in a cage with at least 7.5sq ft(10sq ft for males) on one level and daily floor time/handling, to be happy and healthy.cavyspirit.com/sociallife.htmThey should have unlimited access to fresh water(no Vit C drops) and grass hay available at all times, 1/8-1/4 cup of plain guinea pig pellets(no coloured bits, nuts, seeds, or dried veggies) and 1 cup of fresh veggies per pig daily.guinealynx.info/diet.htmlCheck out these awesome guinea pig websites!guineapigcages.com/guinealynx.info/sitemap.htmlcavyspirit.com/care.htm
When you first get your pet, you’ll need to spend about $35 for a cage. Food runs about $75 a year, plus $25 annually for toys and treats, $50 for an annual veterinary check-up and $400 per year for litter and bedding material. We recommend getting your guinea pig from a responsible breeder or, even better, adopting one from a shelter or small-animal rescue group.Guinea pigs are social animals who prefer to live in small groups. If you keep two or more females together, they will become great friends. If you want two males, it’s smart to choose two babies from the same litter. Since guinea pigs, like all rodents, multiply rapidly, keeping males and females together is not recommended. As a rule of thumb, you’ll need to provide a minimum of four square feet of cage space per guinea pig—but please try to get as large a cage as possible. You’ll need a solid-bottom cage—no wire floors, please, as they can irritate your pets’ feet. Plastic-bottom “tub cages” with wire tops also make great guinea pig homes. Never use a glass aquarium, due to the poor ventilation that it provides. Always keep the cage indoors away from drafts and extreme temperatures, as guinea pigs are very susceptible to heatstroke. They’ll prefer an environment kept at 60 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.Guinea pigs love to hide when they play, so be sure to place cardboard tubes and/or empty coffee cans with smoothed edges in the enclosure for this purpose. Plastic pipes and flower pots are good, too, and bricks and rocks for climbing will be much appreciated. All guinea pigs need a cave for sleeping and resting, so please provide a medium-sized flower pot or covered sleeping box, readily available at pet supply stores.Commercial guinea pig pellets should make up the bulk of your pet’s diet. Nutritionally complete, they’re available at pet supply stores, and are made from plants, seeds and veggies. Feed your guinea pigs twice daily, in the morning and in the evening.The ASPCA recommends offering small amounts of fresh fruit and vegetables to your guinea pigs every day. Try grapes, cucumbers, corn, peas, carrots and pears. Half a handful of veggies and a slice of fresh fruit per pig is plenty. Always make sure to clean up any leftover fresh food before it spoils. You’ll also need to make grass hay available to your pets at all times. It’s great for the digestive system, and will also satisfy your pet’s need to gnaw.Fresh, clean water should be available at all times. Use an inverted bottle with a drinking tube, and change the water daily.Remove soiled bedding, droppings and stale food from the cage daily. Clean the cage completely once a week by replacing dirty bedding and scrubbing the bottom of the cage with warm water. Be sure everything’s dry before adding fresh bedding.Did you know that guinea pigs’ teeth grow continuously, just like those of other rodents? That’s why it is important that you provide yours with something to gnaw on at all times. Branches and twigs from untreated trees will work, as will any small piece of wood that hasn’t been treated with chemicals.It’s crucial that you get your pets used to you—and used to being handled. Start by feeding them small treats. When they’re comfortable with that, you can carefully pick up one pig at a time, one hand supporting the bottom, the other over the back. Once you have hand-tamed your piggies, you should let them run around in a small room or enclosed area to get some additional exercise every day. You will need to carefully check the room for any openings from which the guinea pigs can escape, get lost and possibly end up hurt. These animals must be supervised when they are loose because they will chew on anything in their paths—including electrical wires. Guinea pigs are very conscientious about grooming themselves, but brushing them on a regular basis will help keep their coat clean and remove any loose hairs. Long-haired guinea pigs should be brushed daily in order to prevent tangles and knots from forming.- Solid-bottom cage with wire cover or plastic-bottom “tub” cage (minimum four square feet of cage space per pig) – Guinea pig pellets – Aspen or hardwood shavings – Grass hay – Bricks, rocks, cardboard boxes, plastic pipes and other appropriate toys – Medium flower pot or covered sleeping box – Brush and comb for grooming – Attachable water bottle with drinking tube – Unpainted, untreated piece of wood or safe chew toyAll the best with your new pet! I hope he/she lives a long happy life.
I have 4 guinea pigs at the moment and i’ve had quite a few in the past.They’re not too hard to take care of, or too expensive, but the initial cost isn’t cheap.A good cage is about £80 ($130). Then they need plain wood shavings in the bottom of the cage, not cedar or pine shavings, or sawdust. A lot of people use fleece or towels, but they get dirty fast and smell after a day.80% of their diet is hay. It should be meadow hay and they need a constant supply of it, the same as water. They also need muesli or nuggets to eat too, and need lots of vegetables so they don’t get a vitamin C deficiency because they cant produce their own vitamin C. Here is a list of good vegetables to eat:guineapigcabin.webs.com/diet.htmThat website is also useful for lots of other information.They need to live in pairs because they can get lonely on their own. Also vet check ups every 6 months are necessary as they can be good at hiding any illnesses they may have. You can get lots of breeds too, you can find out about breeds on the breeds page of the website.When guinea pigs are happy, they will squeak at you, this happens if you are stroking them on their lap or chest. They also need exercise, but don’t get those runner balls or wheels. They can break or damage their back or hind legs because their back arches upwards not downwards.Their claws will need clipping monthly, and they will need bathing in a sink of warm water using guinea pig shampoo every 3 months.Check this site out for mor detailed information:guineapigcabin.webs.com/I hope I helped. Please email me if you want any advise or information on my experience perhaps.
Hi there,Please DO NOT listen to Kaitielin! She is VERY wrong. Guinea pigs are rodents, not birds and nuts and seeds are a choking hazard for guinea pigs and should NEVER be given to them. They should be given more than 5 minutes of exercise a day, the least 10 mins, and some cuddle time as well.You say ‘ONE’ guinea pig. This can be a problem. Guinea pigs are very sociable animals and need a lot of company which means just having one piggy living by itself could be a bad idea if you cannot definitely take him/her out everyday for at least an hour or floor time and bonding time and cuddles. They are best off in pairs or small groups, so I highly recommend getting a pair first time.There is a LOT to learn about guinea pig care, they are not just the animals that you may think that need a little bedding every week that can live in a small hutch outdoors. They are actually hard to look after for rodents, so here is a basic guide to guinea pigs:How much they cost: You need about £48-£200 for a cage. Food is about £46 a year, plus £15 for basic toys, £30 for an annual veterinary check-up (many people don’t usually do this, but its best to) and £250 per year for bedding (hay and wood shavings as fleeces smell and can get dirty easily). Also be ready for a high vet’s fee at least once in its life. I recommend getting your guinea pig from a responsible breeder or, even better, adopting one from a shelter or small-animal rescue group.The best breed to get for a beginner is a smooth, because these are the most basic type, which don’t usually need baths, brushing or any extra needs like a skinny pig (hairless guinea pig) or a peruvian (long haired) would. Teddy guinea pigs, rex, satin or crested can also make great beginner pets, but are a little harder to find.Bathing guinea pigs isn’t necessary.They can only go out in their run for 7hrs. When they are on the grass, give them their water bottle, but they’ll eat grass so putting food out isn’t needed. The grass has to be dry, the weather not too windy, cold or rainy. If it is sunny, put a towel over the run giving them some shade, and some sun. When it gets any hotter than about 23 degrees Celsius, bring them inside, in a cool room, on a towel with a fan nearby. They may get sunstroke if they are too hot or too exposed to sun.I highly recommend not getting a sow and a boar because they will breed at a high rate unless you get them neutered and spayed, which can be expensive and risky.Get pairs of the same gender. Male piggies WILL NOT smell, both sows and boars don’t have a natural odour – it is just their waste that does, which is why you should clean them out every few days, or every week if they seem clean. Sows may be a little smaller than boars when they are fully grown, and may do better in guinea pig shows than boars, but unless you are serious about taking your guinea pigs to shows, get whichever piggies that capture your heart :)One of the reasons that make them so good is that you can put them outside in an outdoor cage, a cage in a shed, or in an indoor cage inside your house, which with most of other rodents such as hamsters or gerbils, can only live inside. The only downside is they are a bit noisy at night, but only if they go in your bedroom.They are quite clean animals, but they start to get a bit smelly if you don’t clean them out after 4-5 days. I would say to clean them out every 2-3 days, so make sure you have enough time to do this.They live for 4-8 years, but one of my first guinea pigs lived for a good 6 and a half years! Sadly the other one died at 3 because of an illness.I suggest getting 2 if you can (they are only around £15 so are cheap) as then they can keep each other company – remember to only get 1 boar (male) and 1 sow (female) if you wish to breed. People say don’t get 2 boars because they re smelly, and can fight, but I have had 2 pairs of boars, and from my experience, we’ve had no problems. That is one of the many guinea pig common mistakes – males don’t fight much! If you plan to get 1, only get a single piggy if you can give the time to give it the time (at least get it out for 30 minutes or more) of cuddling each day.They are a great first pet, and all I can say, is please get one and share all the fun from every cavy owner out there. Enjoy!Guinea pig body info:Body temperature is 99 – 103°FHeart rate is 240-350 beats per minuteRespiratory rate is 40-150 breaths per minuteAn average adult male weights 900-1200 grams or roughly 2 – 2.5 poundsAn average adult female weighs 700 – 900 grams or roughly 1.5 – 2 poundsLife span is 4 – 8 yearsGuinea pigs teeth are open-rooted, that is they continue to growGuinea pigs are strict herbivores.HOPE I HELPED!
Behaviour:1~Guinea Pigs aren’t solitary creatures, they’re very social, so it’s highly recommended that you get two or more. The only time a guinea pig should live by itself is because of a medical condition.2~They like to mate, so make sure that if you do get two or more, they are all the same sex.3~They need handling everyday. At least 20 to 30 minutes everyday is recommendedd.4~They are very shy creatures, and very rarely try to escape their cage.5~They aren’t nocturnal. They eat several times throughout the day and take several small naps.6~Their lifespan is about 2 years, though they can live longer than that.Maintenance:1~The cage should be cleaned once a week. This helps prevent feces and odor build up.2~The type of bedding to use varies, but definitely avoid wood chips (such as pine bedding). They tend to eat this and it can cause digestive problems. Shredded newspaper works just as well as buying the soft absorbent bedding from a pet store.3~Various pet stores sell Odor controlling cleaning substances, while not necessary, it is very helpful.4~To clean the cage and parts (food bowl, water dispenser, extra landing, etc), there are different steps to take. A standard once a week cleaning takes mild dish soap and a big sink of water. Make sure to rinse thoroughly. About once a month to two months, you should sterilize the cage. This is done by bleaching all parts, and then washing with mild dish soap. Make sure to rinse especially well. Before putting in bedding, ensure the habitat is entirely dry. Put about 1 to 2 inches of whatever bedding on the bottom of the cage.5~Guinea Pigs are pretty clean animals. Though, about once to twice a year it is necessary to bathe them. Pet stores sell shampoos to bathe the Guinea Pigs. As for brushing, it is unneeded, however a soft baby brush is enjoyable (for owner and pet) to use for shedding. Feeding:1~Each guinea pig has a different preference, some prefer more seeds while others like a plain pellet feed. Try a couple different types (for about a week at a time) to see which yours prefers. They should only eat 1 full bowl of food a day.2~Edible logs are amazing! Guinea pigs have teeth that constantly grow. They need something to chew on to help keep them from getting too long. If the teeth do become over grown however, your local vet should be able to file them down.3~Timothy hay is an essential part of their diet. It is recommended to give them a small pile ever 2 to 3 days. A substitute would be the Timothy Hay Bites, which also helps with their teeth.4~There are numerous chew toys and special treats.These are good for their over all health. However, be wary of giving them too much. Sometimes when given too many treats, that is all that they will eat.5~A water dispenser is highly important. It is good for their health to get a smaller water bottle for them and to change the water daily. This method helps prevent bacteria from growing in and around the water bottle. 6~Though it is not essential, a daily source of vitamins is recommended. This is sold at pet stores. You should follow the directions on the vitamin container.7~If you choose to feed them fresh foods, try a variety of vegetables and fruits to ensure complete nutrition.Things to avoid:1~Guinea Pigs are amiable creatures and get along well with other animals. Though it is best to give them about 1 to 2 weeks time to adjust to their environment before introducing them to other pets. 2~Exercise Wheels are a bad idea for Guinea Pigs. Their nails get longer than most other rodents and can get caught within parts of the wheel while running. This can hurt the animal.3~They aren’t great climbers, so you should avoid making too much on an incline in their habitat. However they are awesome swimmers 4~Standard chemicals are hazardous to their health. Do not spray Febreeze or Lysol in or around their cages. If the cage is emitting a bad odor, then it needs to be cleaned.
