Guinea pigs make wonderful, interactive pets, but they do require some specific care in order to keep them healthy. With the right diet, housing and maintenance, these small pets can easily live a good five years on average - and sometimes even longer! Learning how to take care of a guinea pig for beginners or more advanced pet owners can help keep your pet healthy and happy.

Guinea Pig Cages

A single guinea pig needs at least four square feet of cage space. However, the more space the better. The cage you choose should offer good ventilation because guinea pigs need a lot of fresh air. It should also have a very deep litter pan to prevent your pet from kicking out its bedding.

Guinea Pig Temperature Needs

Guinea pigs do not tolerate extreme temperatures well, so it's important to place your Guinea pig cage in an area with adequate temperature controls. Avoid placing them where they might be subject to cold drafts in the winter or in direct sunlight in the summer. They should be kept within a range of 20 degrees to 22 degrees Celsius to be comfortable. They can handle dropping down to a temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit if they have ample bedding in their cage to snuggle in for insulation and warmth. They also do not care for humidity so you may need to keep a dehumidifier in the room with their cage.

Flooring for a Guinea Pig Cage

Using a floor with a grate is optional. This type of floor allows the animal's waste to drop through, but it can also damage its feet. Guinea pigs also happen to be hindgut eaters. This means they will eat some of their droppings a second time in order to digest them fully. Therefore, they need some access to them, but you can compromise by covering part of the grate with a rabbit floor mat to provide your pet with a more comfortable place to rest.

Guinea Pig Cages Need a Secure Lid

The cage should also be fully enclosed. Guinea pigs aren't very good climbers, but they do occasionally like to jump just for the joy of it, and it is possible for them to escape if their cage has no lid. A lid also protects the animal from other household pets.

Bedding for a Guinea Pig Cage

Do not use cedar shavings because the fumes will make your pet sick. Pine shavings can work, but many pigs and people are allergic to them. Instead, use safer bedding such as

  • Shredded or recycled newspaper bedding
  • Hay
  • Hemp
  • Ground corn cob
  • Cotton towels or cloths
  • Fleece liners

Guinea Pig Cage Accessories

You'll need to equip your pet's cage with the following:

A water bottle with a gravity-fed drinking tube - This is essential to keep your pet from soiling its water. Mount it on the outside of the cage with the tube inserted through the bars to prevent damage from chewing.

An attaching food dish - This dish is equipped with a screw that allows you to anchor the dish to the cage bars so your pet won't knock it over.

A hay rack - This hangs from the cage bars, keeps the timothy from getting soiled, and allows your pet to pull out blades of hay as needed.

A hide - Your pig will want a place to stay in when it wants some peace and quiet or a nice nap.

A bed - Some Guinea pig owners enjoy giving their pet an extra comfy place to cuddle in, and they'll definitely appreciate it, especially on colder days.

DIY Guinea Pig Cage

Some Guinea pig owners prefer to make unique environments for their pet instead of a standard cage purchased at a store.

As long as the materials are safe for your Guinea pig and the "cage" is secured to keep out other pets, you can be really creative and use items like a child's dollhouse or PVC pipe and hardware cloth.

How to Clean a Guinea Pig Cage

  1. Scoop out your pet's main soiling area once a day.
  2. Completely change the bedding once a week.
  3. Wipe down the inside of the cage with a 50:50 ratio of white distilled vinegar and water.
  4. Wipe the surface dry before refilling the bedding and putting your pet back in the cage.
  5. Wash the food dish and water bottle tube and nozzle with the same vinegar mix, and rinse and dry them thoroughly.
