So you’re about to become a pet parent to a guinea pig, congratulations! When getting a new pet, it’s fun to pick out a name and snap cute pictures, but it is most important to provide quality care to your new animal.
Like all pets, small animals require specific care based on their species. It is very important to research your small animal and learn as much information as you can about their species. This will help you to understand exactly what you need to do to keep your new friend happy and healthy in your home.
You must first decide how much space you have available for your small animal or pet bird. Once you have done this, we recommend looking at a few possible habitats you like and then checking the measurements of those you have selected.
It is important to start your new member out with a clean, bill of health. Whether you obtain your pet from a pet store, breeder, rescue group, or friend, it is important to have your pet health inspected by your local veterinarian.
