Exercise and Your Guinea Pig

Exercise and Your Guinea Pig

Your guinea pig needs ample exercise to prevent obesity and stay happy and healthy. Since your guinea pig spends most of his life in his cage, make it a fun place to be. Give him ramps to climb on and tunnels to run through. Some guinea pigs enjoy pushing a ball around the cage or play with other toys. However, don’t put so much stuff in the cage that it becomes difficult to move around. Plan on at least a half hour of exercise time outside the cage. Let your pig run around and explore your home. Supervise him at all times while outside the cage and make his play area a safe place to be. Get down to your guinea pig’s level and play with him for extra socialization. Protect your guinea pig from falls or accidental kicks. Most importantly, have fun with your guinea pig. For more information, contact your Camden Pet Hospital.
