  • Description

    Please note that the product information displayed is provided by manufacturers, suppliers and other third parties and is not independently verified by Petco.

    Guinea Pigs are considered to be an ideal first pet! They are adorable and loving animals that are easy to maintain and handle. There are a number of treats and toys available to use when bonding with your guinea pig. Guinea pigs are very affectionate and will snuggle up to their pet parents. They are one of the few small animals that may enjoy interacting with you as much as you do with them!

    • - Guinea Pigs bond easily with their pet parent(s) and will communicate through various sounds such as squeaks, chirps and purrs.
    • - Crepuscular, meaning they are most active at Dawn and Dusk
    • - Requires Vitamin C daily.
    • - Guinea pigs may be kept in same-sex pairs if they are raised together. Different types of small animals should not be housed together.
    • - Easy to handle; prefers a routine and similar time for playing, feeding and resting each day.
    • - Jump in the air, or "popcorn," when happy or excited.
    • - Chew on objects to maintain all their teeth, which grow continuously; ensure they have plenty of chew sticks or mineral chews available.
