Guinea pigs are housed entirely indoors to prevent exposure to extremes of heat and cold. Guinea Pigs are housed in separate floor pens with hidey holes, tunnels and boxes. All pens are cleaned and our special water absorbent pads are replaced on a daily basis.
Guinea pigs have continual access to food which is checked and refreshed several times a day.
We give a generous helping of a variety of vegies. This is a mixture of leafy greens and herbs along with a small amount of carrot, capsicum, kumara as well as fresh fruits and berries for a rich source of Vitamin C.
A generous supply of good quality rye or meadow hay is always available.
We also feed an appropriate serve of Oxbow Guinea pig, our pellet of choice twice a day. Pellets are sprinkled on the hay to provide entertainment in the forage for food.
Feel free visit from 10.00 am to 12.00 pm from Monday to Saturday. By 10 am, we have finished the daily cleaning routine and are looking spic and span – for the shortest of times until our party animals undo all the good work!!
