How do you take care of a guinea pig?

My daughter wants one but I'll end up taking care of it.


Answer by  pets (14)

Guinea pigs are easy to care for. Keep them in a large aquarium with a woodchip bedding. Make sure they have a water bottle and alfalfa pellets for food. Give them a small refuge to hide in and be sure to clean the tank regularly of waste matter.

Change out the bedding at least once a week. Provide fresh water in the bottle and pellets and fresh greens in bowl. Provide toys to chew on and give attention.

A guinea pig's cage must be cleaned and have litter replaced at least 4 times per week, sometimes daily. Their food and water must be kept full at all times.

You need at least 2 of the same sex since they are herd animals. They need a big cage with a deep base and a wire top part for air flow. They need pellets with vitamin C and lots of hay to eat as well as fruits and vegetables.
