    GUINEA PIG HANDLING

    Hello everyone, I’m just wondering how much should you take your piggies out of their cage or give them lap time? How important is this and how much do you let your piggies have floor and lap time? Is once a week enough or should it be more? Thanks x

    Low calcium diet

    Hi, I really want to start my piggies on a low calcium diet but I don’t know what I can and can’t feed them. Do I still feed pellets, if so how much? What veg should be given as a treat and what veg could I give almost daily? Thanks x
