Hello my name is Sarah and i'm a university student in the UK. It would be fantastic if any of you could quickly do a quick 10 question survey.

It will help me get my degree in Applied Animal Studies. The survey is about guinea pig welfare. Follow the link below and if you have any questions
send them to my email address S0063314@students.moulton.ac.uk i'm happy to reply and will do so as soon as i can ( 00 - zeros not Os)

Is the care of guinea pigs improved when owners seek advice prior to purchase? Survey

Completed your survey. Do you have pigs yourself?

Your vet question is difficult to answer... I wanted to say as often as needed..... just typed in a random 20 :)

Mine have never been to the vet, but I have had them only 2 months.. Also I did put in comment as they are indoors but not in the house but in the garage. Indoor vs outdoor is not the only choice

Actually I think most guinea pigs care would be improved if the owners used their common sense! lol

(Can you tell I'm in a bad mood tonight as my piggies were enjoying still being outside and do not appreciate having to come indoors - Guy Fawkes has a lot to answer for!)

i think there needs to be more awareness about bringing pets other than dogs and cats indoors during firework events. Thanks for contributing to my survey :)

Completed. Like the others the vet question is difficult to answer as this year has only been 2-4 times but last year we were there more often than we were at home!

The how many piggies have/had you had question is also hard to answer as I currently have 4 but have had 13 altogether if you include past piggies.

Good luck with your study though :)

Completed.

I struggled a bit with the food one as I only feed my guinea pigs vegetables and not fruit on advice from a savy vet.
