Caring for guinea pigs is something that requires ample research; browse photos of birds on the web. It is also necessary to trim their nails every six weeks. Be very attentive while trimming their nails in order not to hurt the animal. If you have no skills in grooming your pet, you’d better consult a vet or knowledgeable person for instructions. Special diet is also important for these animals. They should always have good-quality food and fresh, clean water. Commercially available pellets (only fresh one) provide all of the essential nutrients. Unlike most mammals, cavies require a high level of the vitamin, folic acid.

Cavies are sociable animals and will gladly admit the company of others. However, it is important to know that sexually mature boars are intolerant of each other if there are sows around. Their grooming needs are minimal, but important. It is necessary to brush long haired breeds regularly with a soft brush. When bathing your pet, line a sink with a towel or rag. The sink should be half filled with lukewarm water. Use shampoo specially made for these animals. After bathing the animal should be rinsed thoroughly, and dried with a towel. You can also use a hair dryer set to a warm setting. Caring for guinea pigs is something that requires ample research; browse photos of birds on the web.
