These gentle, social companion pets will enjoy the companionship of another guinea pig (if you have two, house only same gender pairs), as well as interaction with their Pet Parents. Although shy at first, they will develop intense affection for their Pet Parents and may whistle to signal their happiness. Guinea pigs are diurnal, so they are most active during the day and will sleep about 4-6 hours per night.

Things to remember

Lifting & handling
Handle your guinea pig gently. Place one hand under her shoulders with your thumb over and around the neck, use your other hand to support under her back end, and hold firmly but not tightly.

Vitamin C
Guinea pigs cannot store or manufacture vitamin C, so you'll need to add a supplement to her water daily.

Special needs
Your guinea pig's front teeth never stop growing -- so she needs lots of healthy things to chew on like treat sticks and chews.

Choose a fortified diet made especially for guinea pigs.

Your guinea pig needs a well-ventilated home with a solid floor, large enough for a food dish, water bottle and a hiding area (if one isn't built in). There should be plenty of room for all cage accessories, and for her to move around freely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Sweet We bought 3 girls, great pets. You will want a big cage. Also with babies please get at least 1 or 2 hides if you get multiple pigs. My girls were skittish for a couple of weeks but got used to us. These pigs will eat SOOOO much food. Other wise they are great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from female guinea pigs are great companions I love female guinea pigs. I have two of my own. I have had several guinea pigs and I've never been bitten and they are a bit shy at first but after a few weeks of giving them attention, the squeal every time you walk into the room or when they know your home. They love to snuggle and go crazy when you walk into the room with treats. I got both of my guinea pigs at Pet smart when they were about six weeks old. They were not very friendly but they have came around and I can't imagine them with anyone else but me. I truly do recommend guinea pigs as a companion because they are great pets and friends. -Lakend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my pig I like my Guinea pig very much. She is easy to handle and she likes being petted. I wouldn't recommend them to people aren't going to have enough time for them. But if you have enough time it would be a great pet for you to have.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love I got my piggy the November of 2016 right before our local store became a male store . I would recommend a Guinea pig to people that can't have dogs or cats. Some people at the store said they have an odor but mine doesn't at all we got the lavender scented litter and it doesn't smell at all, but I do clean the cage once a week. My guinea pig is healthy and happy it was shy at first but after a couple of weeks it warmed up to me and makes happy noises when I come into my room. Their easy to take care of compared to my other pets. DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!!! This is not an impulse buy, no pet should be ,at least two weeks of research.A great pet very loving and would recommend and the people at pet smart were really nice .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Pets! I have 2 Guinea Pigs. They are for sure one of the best things that have ever happened to me. They are so sweet and cuddly. They are quite easy to take care of overall, but they do require some attention. Guinea Pigs are great pets, you definitely need one!:)
