Let’s talk about backyard breeding. Yes, it is very cute when new guinea pig pups are born but it is very difficult to find new homes for guinea pigs. It is also very risky for the females to give birth when you are not a guinea pig health professional. Backyard breeding is not needed as there are many homeless guinea pigs available for adoption. Please adopt, don’t shop.
Patrice visited her vet for her six monthly check up. Patrice’s vet is a cavy specialist. The vet checks her teeth, feet, heart rate, eyes, urine, faeces, weight and overall condition.
Adopting a rescue pet is beneficial to you, and your new pet! Here are a few reasons why:
Patrice’s enclosure needs constant maintenance such as floor, bowl, bedding and bottle cleaning.
Patrice loves watermelon and kiwi skins! It’s terrific, we eat the fruit and Patrice eats the the skins!
Patrice has her hair brushed every day, and her hair cut periodically. She also has her nails clipped every second month.
