Guinea pigs have a hard time keeping themselves cold in the summer and they could overheat and possibly die. A way to make sure they don’t overheat is to keep them with fresh water, I know that you are always supposed to give them water but I know that there are some people that sometimes forget to feed them or to give them water when they need it.
Another way to keep them cool is to stick a fan in the room that they are staying in… Just make sure the fan is not directly in front of them so they wont get to cold. If they are outside make sure they are in the shade and DO NOT leave tem outside for a long period of time. Guinea Pigs are not like dog or cats where you could leave them unsupervised and outside for more than 30 min at the max.
They last way to make sure they don’t over heat is to not mess around with them a whole lot and keep the noise at a low sound. I know that must sound weird but guinea pigs are like humans. When something happens that they don’t like there heart starts to race and when heart rate goes us, so does there body temperature. It is the same way how they sweat.(EWW)
