Handy Guinea Pig Tips

Hot Weather

Bottles filled with water and put in the freezer. When cold enough wrap them with a thin sheet of towel and the piggies like sitting next to these or on them.
Hot water bottle not filled with hot water but with ICE
If the sun beats through the window put a car windscreen shade on it
By Piggiewiggy

Keep the curtains closed so the midday sun doesn't heat the room and extra cucumber for them to suck on
By DebbieR

A window open and a fan on which is not directly on them.

A thin cotton drape over one end of the hutch when I am out, an open window too. Lots of cucumber and melon.
A spray bottle of water.
Cooler baths
