Picking Up Your Guinea Pig

Picking Up Your Guinea Pig

Your guinea pig could be injured if you handle him roughly. He could even die if you drop him. Thus you need to learn to pick up your guinea pig properly. Make sure your piggy is comfortable with you by sitting next to his cage while you talk or sing to him softly. Drape your hand in the cage for your guinea pig to explore. Try to hand feed him too. When you are ready to pick up your cat, act quickly and efficiently. Place one hand under his chest behind his front legs. Use the other hand to scoop up your pig’s rear end. Once you are clear of the cage, pull your pig to your chest so he doesn’t wriggle away. Be prepared to lower your guinea pig to the floor rather than drop him. Be careful with your pig and work to ensure his safety. Contact your Riverside County, CA vet to learn more. Visit website http://desertdunes.com/ for additional information.
