Guinea Pig Male

Description

A Guinea Pig is a small rodent species of the Caviidae family. It is native to the Andes Mountains of South America, and is often kept as a pet in many countries around the world. Also know as 'Cavy' or 'Piggies'. They are sociable creatures and require daily interaction with humans to be happy and healthy. They are typically herbivores, and their diet consists of hay, vegetables, and specially formulated pellets. Guinea Pigs are known for their high pitched squeals and have a life span of about 4-7 years.

Being such sociable animals they need to have a friend. To ensure the best life for our Brookies Guinea Piggies we only sell our Guinea Pigs in a pair (unless you already have one at home). A same-sex pair is recommended to ensure you don't have any unwanted litters. Both Females and Males can be kept together without any issues. Be aware that sometimes personality differences in the animals will mean certain guinea pigs won't get along. Introducing them as babies is the best way to get a pair to bond, though even adults can usually be introduced with care.

Taking care of a Guinea Pig is a rewarding experience! Here are some tips to get you started: 


1. Provide a spacious cage with plenty of room for exercise and play. 


2. Ensure the cage is lined with a safe substrate such as newspaper or grass hay. 


3. Offer fresh vegetables and fruits as part of their diet.


4. Place a water bottle and food dish in the cage.


5. Provide chew toys to keep the guinea pig active and its teeth trim. 


6. Brush your guinea pig's fur regularly to keep it looking beautiful and healthy. 


7. Handle your guinea pig gently and try to build up trust. 


8. Monitor their health regularly by keeping an eye out for any changes in behaviour.
