Does anyone else use heat Pads for their Guinea pigs? If so does anyone know if you can put two on top of each other to save some time? I was just wondering as I have three guinea pigs and they have one heat Pad each and it takes 18 mins to do all of them.
Thanks

do you mean in the microwave? I’d probably say no.

No, they need to be heated one at a time.

Yes it does take ages! I have four heat pads between my two piggies (they live in my shed). I just work half an hour each night, and then also half an hour each morning in the depths of winter when they need the pads during the day too, into my daily routine

yes you can't put two in at once because the microwave won't heat them the same way - they'll either overheat or be too cool. I have six (I know) microwaveable teddy bears for the girly time of the month and they take sooo long :)
