Guinea Pigs


Guinea pigs require a lot of attention are quite pricey to keep as they require fresh vegetables every day including Green peppers (very important for the vitamin C content), Tomatoes, Lettuce (not iceberg), Carrots, Parsley, Cucumber, Broccoli, Cabbage in small amounts, Celery, sweetcorn.  They also love bananas, watermelon, strawberries, apples and oranges.

They require regular grooming, bathing and nail clipping. Their cages need to be cleaned at least once a week.

There are different types of Guinea pig: 3 long straight haired varieties, the sheltie, the Peruvian and the coronet. There are 3 long curly haired varieties, the texel, the alpaca and the Merino. The short haired varieties are the rex, the Abyssinian and the smooth haired.  They originated in South America.

I'm sorry, I don't know where you will find a breeder.
