Kepping your guinea pigs nails cut.

Are your guinea pigs nails to long… lets see..  nails bad nails good

The brown paw is bad because of the curled nails. The white paw is good because it is clean and not to long.

Things you will need: Any fruit or veggie that will keep your guinea occupied for a while. Clippers that will not break and injure your guinea pigs nails. The last thing is a place where you can sit down with your guinea pig.

So while you are feeding your pig or keeping it occupied then you can either cut its nail while it on the floor or in your hand… It just depends on if your guinea pig likes being held. Cut your pigs nails till it is a little bit before the pink. If your guinea pigs nails are dark like picture one then cut it unilt you think it is short enough for your guinea pig can walk around with comfort.

I hope this helps

About the Guinea pigs

Oliver: I got Oliver on December 21 2012. My dad bought him for me and I got him because of my past… My cousin used to own a guinea pig named Mario and he was all Brown like the one side on Oliver. Anyway… back to Oliver… His name was originally Luigi but my dad said that in order to keep him I had to name him Oliver… so the name stuck.

Jack Jack: I got Jack Jack on July 21 2013. When I first got him I was wearing a neon shirt and he would freak out every time I would try to hold him. So i was going to return him but my mom said to wait and see how he will do if he gets out of the car. So when I brought him home it was doing really well with Oliver.  All of the bad came along when I was trying to get the older boys with the babies… that did not work out so when I was watching to older two by themselves Oliver bit his ear and hit his brain. He did not die but now he limps.

The three babies: So when bananas was impregnate… I did not know how she was doing until she had her babies. They were born on Memorial Day. They were all boys and they are all still really small… I don’t think they are going to get much bigger.. Maddy is the runt and Chinche is the oldest… that means that he thinks he is all big and bad.. not Geo Cheo is trying to make everything happy time between them all.

About bananas

Well as of 2 weeks ago my guinea pig  bananas has died… we don’t know really what happen. All I really know is that she was prego. again and the babies did something.

Buying a guinea pig.

Well when you buy a guinea pig it does not have to hear hard as you think it would be. All you have to  do is get the stuff that you need then put it all together. With picking out what guinea pig you want with sex and type you can look at two other post about those. Before you pick out your guinea pig you need to pick out your cage.  Your guinea pig cage for only one guinea pig should be at least 7 1\2 square feet or 30 in X 36 in. With a guinea pig water bottle you should get a medium size and a hook that goes around the bottle (usually  comes with bottles). You will need Vitamin C drops for the water(about 3 drops per bottle).With the food you should get just regular pellets without all of the extra “treats” because the food dye is bag for any animal. With bedding you should make sure you have newspaper to put on the bottom of the cage. Then you need to get bedding that is just normal wood shavings that are many for small animals. Then with the houses I prefer the wood ones if you don’t want to get wood toys also but sense I have wood toys I have plastic ones. And that is about it. If you have any questions feel free to comment and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.
