Guinea Pig – Aberfoyle Park

These babies are from a rescue situation not bred here. Our Guinea pigs will be adopted in pairs unless you already have Guinea pigs. (They should not be kept on their own). I will ask for a pic of your setup so I know they will be cared for correctly. Guinea pigs require supply of hay, food and daily veggies and of course a water bottle.

2 Healthy Female Guinea Pigs For Sale

2 Healthy Female Guinea pigs for sale. I've just moved houses and it's getting hard to look after them. In addition to the guinea pigs, their cage, tunnel, house water tank, hay and pellets will be included. These two both get along with each other very well and it's preferable that these two don't get seperated. I've owned these 2 for 6 months and it's been a really fun experience.

Two male Guinea pigs need new home

Hi ! Unfortunately, due to overseas relocation, it’s with a heavy heart that I need to rehome my 2 beautiful and sweet Guinea pigs.   They are two brothers aged 2 years and a half named Lumos (black and white piggie) and Nimbus (little cutie that looks like a squirrel). Lumos is a little pocket rocket of energy and happily popcorns, he is skittish but warms up to you well if you go to him with calm energy. Nimbus on the other hand, once he gets to know you, is not skittish at all, loves cuddles and will kiss you a lot too. They are both healthy, happy piggies who LOVE food (fresh veggies is the way to win their hearts) and they make wonderful pets. Also, they are absolute best friends so I would prefer to send them together to a new home, preferably with a quiet environment.   Location: Pyrmont, Sydney NSW Please PM me for more information if interested. Meet and greets are welcome ! Thank you !

The Ultimate Guinea Pig Guide

About Guinea Pig

The Guinea Pig, also known as the Domestic Cavy, has a lot of personality and can be quite comical at times. Additionally, they are relatively low maintenance compared to other pets such as dogs or cats. They don’t require a lot of exercise and can be content living in a small space. Guinea Pigs are also relatively quiet and won’t disturb your neighbours. Those who keep Guinea Pigs as pets will find that they’re surprisingly social and affectionate animals.

Origins

The Guinea Pig originated in South America and was domesticated by the Incas. It was brought to Europe by Spanish explorers in the 16th century and quickly became a popular pet. Guinea Pigs were first used for medical research in the 19th century and continue to be used for this purpose today. There are both haired and hairless Guinea Pigs, with over 20 recognised breeds.

Key Characteristics Of Guinea Pigs

Do Guinea Pigs Make Good Pet?

Yes. A Guinea Pig is a good pet if their owner has the time to dedicate to taking care of them properly. Guinea Pigs need to be handled regularly so they get used to being around people, and do not like to be left alone for long periods of time and can become anxious if they feel isolated.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Guinea Pigs may suffer from:

Suitable Cage

A Guinea Pig cage should be made of cubes and coroplast, otherwise known as C&C cages. It should have a minimum of 7.5 square feet of floor space, but larger is better. The floor of the cage should be covered with hay, shredded paper, or a soft cloth to provide insulation and comfort. A water bottle and food dish should be provided, and the food dish should be filled with fresh vegetables and fruits daily. The water bottle should be refilled as needed. A hiding place, such as a cardboard box, should be provided for the Guinea Pig to retreat to when it feels scared or overwhelmed.

Other Considerations

  • Guinea Pigs enjoy having company and are often kept in same-sex pairs when raised together.
  • Most Guinea Pigs like having time outside of their habitat. It’s good to slowly get them used to being handled so that they can be brought out from time to time.
  • Guinea Pigs are crepuscular, so they are more active at dawn and dusk.

How can I take good care of my Guinea Pig?

Nutrition

A healthy diet for a Guinea Pig includes hay, a small amount of fresh vegetables, and a limited number of pellets specifically made for Guinea Pigs.

The bulk of the diet should be hay, which provides essential nutrients and helps keep the digestive system running smoothly. Some good options include timothy hay, oat hay, or meadow hay. Fresh vegetables can be given as a supplement, and should include dark leafy greens like kale or spinach, as well as carrots, peas, and other root vegetables. Avoid giving too many vegetables at once, as this can cause stomach upset.

Pellets should make up a small part of the diet, no more than 1/4 cup per day. Choose a pellet that is high in fibre and low in sugar to ensure proper nutrition. Also, always give your Guinea Pig access to fresh, clean drinking water.

Special Needs

Guinea Pigs are social creatures that need both exercise and enrichment in order to stay healthy and happy. Exercise is important for Guinea Pigs to stay active and maintain a healthy weight. Enrichment is important for Guinea Pigs to stimulate their minds and keep them from getting bored.

There are a variety of ways to provide exercise for your Guinea Pig. One way is to let them run around in a safe, enclosed area. Another way is to provide them with toys that they can play with, such as balls or tunnels. It is important to make sure that any toys you give your Guinea Pig are safe and non-toxic.

Enrichment for Guinea Pigs can take many forms. One way to enrich their environment is to provide them with hiding places, such as tunnels or cardboard boxes. You can also give them chew toys, such as hay cubes or wooden blocks, to gnaw on. Another way to enrich their environment is to provide them with different types of food, such as vegetables or fruits, to encourage them to forage.

It is important to remember that Guinea Pigs are social creatures and need companionship in order to thrive. If you are only able to provide one Guinea Pig with exercise and enrichment, you should consider getting another Guinea Pig so that they can socialise with each other.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

A healthy Guinea Pig is alert and active, has a smooth, glossy coat, and bright eyes. If you notice any sort of weight loss, distressed breathing or discharge from the eyes or nose, take your Guinea Pig to the vet immediately.
