Guinea Pigs! What, Where, and How

Jessi talks about Guinea Pigs. What are they? Where did they come from? And how do you take care of one as a pet.

I would also suggest giving them a Vitamin C supplement on top of their pelleted diet. The older the pellets the less Vitamin C it contains. A 1/2 tablet of a regular human dose is easy to get and easy to give. Do not put anything in their water in case they don’t like the taste. Just let them chew up the tablet themselves.

Edit: As many have so graciously pointed out, guinea pigs need companionship to thrive in captivity. Please consider housing two or more guinea pigs together and be responsible about spaying and neutering if you have mixed genders. I would recommend either 1 male and 1-2 females, or all females. The more guinea pigs you have, the more space you need to provide for them. Thanks everyone for speaking up and showing your concern for keeping guinea pigs happy and healthy!
