Junior Guinea Pig
- Nov 12, 2017
I got my first boar as a single pig and always planned to get a friend for him but he was a little on the naughty side (probably male hormones) so I thought I'd wait until he calmed down a bit first. It was about 4 months until my second pig came along. In that time I had done a lot of research and saw that everyone spot cleaned their cages daily and did a full clean once a week. I spot cleaned daily but he was so clean and tidy a full clean seemed pointless and I only did it once a month and it didn't really need doing then. I assumed once my second pig came along it would more than likely need doing every 2 weeks. Along came my second pig and honestly I could do a full cage clean as in throw everything and disinfect twice a day! He pees everywhere and sleeps in piles of poo. I have added vetbed and a puppy pad underneath in their beds to help keep them dry and apart from pee in all areas of the cage, the puppy pad is saturated! I do a full clean every week but change the fleece and pad daily. The cage looks lovely when its first done (I do it in the evening) but by the morning it looks like I haven't touched it for a month. He certainly keeps me on my toes!
