Guinea pig care
Providing your guinea pig with the correct amount of fibre is very important to overall health and well-being. It is essential that your guinea pig has access to fresh hay and or grass at all times. Fibre provided by hay and grass has many beneficial functions:
It helps to maintain a healthy digestive system.
It helps wear down your guinea pig's continuously growing teeth. Overgrown teeth can be painful and prevent your guinea pig from eating properly leading to health problems.
Guinea pigs are natural grazers and will spend a large proportion of their time foraging for food. Constant access to hay and or grass helps prevent your pet from becoming bored and encourages them to express natural behaviour.
Guinea pigs can be prone to weight gain if they do not have the opportunity to exercise. It is essential that your guinea pig has access to a large area where they can run about and play. This helps them to maintain an optimal weight and provides mental stimulation.
Ensure your guinea pig has access to fresh water at all times.
