Things to consider before adopting a Guinea Pig



Guinea pigs are friendly and easily tamed, but they need commitment and regular attention. Long-haired guinea pigs can be especially difficult to look after. Guinea Pigs can be very skittish and very fast, so should have regular handling. Guinea pigs should have a supply of fresh vegetables on a daily basis and occasionally some fruit as a treat. An average age of a guinea pig is 6-8 years.



What guinea pigs need. Can you provide the following?

  • Companionship - To be with other guinea pigs, most guinea pigs live happily in pairs or small groups although occasionally a guinea pig will prefer to be on its own. The widespread practice of keeping guinea pigs and rabbits together is not recommended.
  • Feeding a balanced diet, with daily vegetables and hay.
  • A constant supply of fresh, clean drinking water in a drip feed bottle with a metal spout.
  • A large weatherproof home kept off the ground, out of direct sunlight and strong winds. 
  • A clean layer of wood shavings on the floor of their home and plenty of soft hay or straw for bedding and burrowing.
  • Daily exercise.
  • Their home to be cleaned every day and bedding changed weekly.
  • A gnawing block to wear down long teeth.
  • To be brushed every day if they have a long or rough-haired coat.
  • Some quiet time alone or with other guinea pigs every day.
  • To be taken to a vet if they are ill or injured.
  • To be looked after when you are on holiday.
