Part of your responsibility as a pet owner is to keep your guinea pig healthy so you can enjoy having your pet around for a long time. Most guinea pigs fail to stay around for long because they get fat from unhealthy guinea pig food & diet and eventually they die. Keep your pet healthy by doing some of these techniques:
Watch their food Intake
Your guinea pig will munch on whatever you put in his food dish so avoid putting too much food. You can feed your pet twice a day to make sure that he doesn’t stuff himself. Also don’t give him one type of food everyday like pellets because it doesn’t contain all the nutrients your little friend need. Give him greens and pellets alternately and always make sure to have clean water available for him 24/7.
Keep your guinea pig healthy and entertained by discovering fun exercises for them to do. These techniques will ensure that your pet is in ideal weight.
- Guinea pigs love looking around the window, they are curious creatures that enjoys knowing what is happening in their surroundings. Placing your guinea pig cage in near the window will be helpful to them because they have plenty of visibility. Avoid putting them in dark and closed areas because it will make them sad and depressed.
- If you have a garden, give your guinea pig some time to wander around. Take them out of their cage once in a while and let them run around while monitoring them. It will give them the exercise they need as well as keep them entertained. Just make sure to watch the temperature to avoid potential hyperthermia issues. The ideal temperature shouldn’t go beyond 80˚F (26˚C).
