Guinea pigs are wonderful pets that rarely bite and don't usually scratch. They are affectionate like dogs and are small animals. However they do require a lot of care.

You should not ever give your guinea pigs vitamin drops in the water it could cause them not to like it and not drink it just give them cucumber lettuce tomato and zucchini.

I have two guineas that are happy and loving.
two girls Mrs. Piggy and Mulan or mooey for short.
they are really healthy so even though they didn't suggest me having guinea pigs i have some and this is not all correct. so if you are staking guinea pigs on this it is not really true.

guinea pigs don't require vitamin drops! just give them lots of veggies and love
P.S. if you want a content guinea pig you should have a buddy for your furry

Vitamin c drops are a bad idea. They life potency when died on the water and the water fits stake quickly, which means you have to change the water at least once a day- it is better to give veggies and fruits (about 10-20% of their body weight every day)

You should NOT give guinea pigs vitamin C drops in their water, give them fresh veggies Instead! Iโ€™m also disappointed to see the amount of commenters with only 1 piggie. They thrive in groups so you need at least two! Please do your research before getting a pet people...

I would like to know all I can before enjoying the company of a Guinea Pig. I've thought about the library since they probably will have an abundance and variety of books. I want to make sure it will be the right pet and that I am the right owner.
