Guinea pig checklist

Sometimes it can be difficult to remember exactly everything that you need to get for your new pet. So I’ve constructed a list of things that you may want to get over time. It is preferable to keep your guinea pigs indoors where they won’t be subjected to the hot and cold climates, predators or theft, so for this purpose the things that are included in this list are meant for indoor guinea pigs.

    My brother used to have 7 cute guinea pigs, but now he only have 2 of them (pork chop and ketchup), they are outdoor guinea pigs. He has been planning though to just keep them indoor since he only has 2 now. This list, I would say has all of the things he should consider getting especially the anti-lice and mite creams and shampoo. I am wondering though why is eye dropper on the list? hihi maybe for meds or food. I don’t know much about guinea pigs, so I hope you could enlighten me more. =) Thanks

      Good question! Eye droppers are useful for washing out their eyes if they get irritated by dust or hay poke and you don’t have the necessary eye wash for it. It is also useful for the critical care food if they aren’t eating. I’m so glad to hear that your brother is bringing him guinea pigs inside! He will get twice as much enjoyment with them! They are a lot of fun to watch.
