Caring for your Guinea Pig PDF Print E-mail

It's National Adopt-A-Guinea-Pig month! So of course we needed to take a closer look at this interesting, entertaining pet. In the coming days, we'll be examining the various types of guinea pigs, how you can create a great home for your guinea pig, and what type of care your new pet will need.

In most cases, the process of adopting a guinea pig, or any animal, involves an application process and an application fee. Shelters and rescue organizations want to be sure you understand the commitment and appropriate care guinea pigs require.

Read more about the Abyssinian, the Coronet, the White-Crested, the American, the Texel, The Teddy, the Silkie, and the Peruvian types of guinea pigs.


The needs of a guinea pig are simple. Follow these basic guidelines and take a look at the breed you have for individual needs, to ensure that your pet has the best home in the world!


Guinea pigs enjoy play and are capable of jumping 12 inches high. Therefore, ideally, the enclosure should provide a minimum of 7.5 square feet (30 inches by 36 inches) for one guinea pig. More space should be provided for additional guinea pigs. If wire-bottom cages are used, wood, grass mats, or other materials should be placed on a portion of the floor to protect their feet. The wire floor mesh should be fine enough to prevent feet from getting caught. Glass aquarium enclosures should never be used because they do not allow proper ventilation. Cages should be located away from direct sunlight, drafts and temperature extremes. Always line cages with bedding such as sawdust or wood shavings.


Guinea pigs love to hide, so include cardboard or PVC tubes, or other types of hide boxes in the cage. For playtime, you may also use a large indoor exercise run, or "guinea pig-proof" a single room. Always supervise playtime outside the cage.


Feed a diet that provides quality timothy hay at all times. In addition, provide fresh, quality, commercial pellets made especially for guinea pigs every day. Guinea pigs require daily vitamin C, which rabbit pellets do not contain. Fresh vegetables and clean fresh water should also be provided daily. The water should be provided in an inverted bottle that attaches to the enclosure.

Grooming and general care

Guinea pigs' teeth grow continuously, and they need to chew to keep their teeth the proper length. Provide pigs with a piece of wood to gnaw on. Use a pesticide-free tree branch or an unpainted piece of wood that has not been chemically treated. There are also a number of chew toys that are available commercially.

Brush your guinea pig regularly to keep his coat smooth and to remove loose hair. Long-haired guinea pigs should be groomed daily to prevent tangles and matting.
