Life in the Caviery
The caviery provides a safe and secure environment for guinea pigs (aka cavies). They may be small but still need lots of care and attention.
Because they have poor tolerance to extremes of heat and cold, our special facility is entirely indoors. It is air-conditioned and set at a comfortable, constant temperature all year round.
Guinea pigs are housed in roomy pens with hidey-holes, tunnels, boxes and logs to make life interesting. In addition, we have indoor playpens where everyone has daily time out for a forage and snuffle around.
The caviery is separate and distant from the kennels or cattery.
Guinea pigs have continual access to food which is checked and refreshed several times a day.
We give generous helpings of a variety of veggies. This is a mixture of leafy greens and herbs along with Vitamin C rich foods such as carrot, capsicum and kumara as well as fresh fruits and berries for a treat.
A generous supply of good quality rye 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.
Fresh water is supplied in both a bowl and a sipper.
