I have created this at a glance guinea pig shopping list for everything you need for a new guinea pig. It also contains some great ideas for existing guinea pig owners!
The below items are the basics of what your guinea pig will need if they are to live outside.
Guinea pigs are naturally very clean animals. Most cages or hutches only need at most a twice weekly clean.
Stay away from sawdust or wood chippings as they can damage your guinea pigs eyes. You can also make your own shredded paper!
Treats can be a great way to bond with your guinea pigs. They are also great for saying well done after a trip to the vets or a bath. safe fruit can also be offered as a treat.
Guinea pigs love to have fun! Ensuring they have something to do is essential for their health.
Soft beds for your guinea pigs
Did you know guinea pigs are active for 20 hours a day?! Although they only sleep for 4 hours, they do love to lie down! Having something soft provides lots of comfort.
Guinea Pig Tunnels
Another great way to keep your guinea pigs entertained is with a tunnel! Its also great for wearing their teeth down!
