Hello, My guinea pig has recently had dental surgery because the pet shop never actually told us he had teeth behind his front, which can be a very common mistake, just wanted to know if anyone had any tips they use to shorten their teeth, I’ve heard that Timothy Hay works, anything else I can try? Thank you x

Hay really is the best thing for keeping the teeth worn down x

80% if the diet should be hay anyway and as @Gem789 has already mentioned it is the best thing to wear down the teeth. Piggies must have unlimited hay and access to it 24/7.
