Guinea pig

Small beady eyes, cuddly fur and the cute squeak - guinea pigs are very popular as pets. They are small, make hardly any noise, are usually very tame and like to be stroked by humans. Like their wild conspecifics, domestic guinea pigs are social, sociable animals and quickly suffer from loneliness when kept alone. Therefore at least two animals should be kept together. Regarding the composition of the group there are several possibilities. In general, females or even siblings get along well with each other. In a natural composition, several females and a neutered buck belong together, because this way the actual behaviour can be lived out.

The animals are exclusively cared for as members of the family and are not put together with other conspecifics.

Guinea pigs can be kept indoors in my guesthouse, as well as outdoors from spring to autumn.

The normal enclosure 150 cm x 70 cm x for up to 3 guinea pigs.

The XL enclosure 220 cm x 100 cm x 70 cm for up to 5 guinea pigs.

In the outdoor area there is a double pen with escape-proof free-range, which is available to the guinea pigs 24 hours a day. Here up to 5 guinea pigs find a place for their holidays.

Reception conditions for guinea pigs

Guinea pigs housed in outdoor housing must be able to present a negative parasitological faecal sample. This can be done by your veterinarian. For this you collect about 15 guinea pig droppings over 3 days. The examination must not be older than 3 months.

In case of an infestation, treatment usually takes about 4-6 weeks. Therefore please plan enough time for this before your stay in the guesthouse.

Please understand that I cannot offer care for guinea pigs that would have a "positive" (e.g. coccidia etc.) faecal sample result at the start of their journey.
