The information in this section of the guide looks at the basics of making your new guinea pigs feel happy and at home. It covers their basic needs, how to handle them, and how to 'guinea pig proof' your home to prevent the GPs escaping.
Guinea pigs make great pets
Guinea pigs require certain standard pieces of equipment and a basic level of care. Getting things ready before they arrive at your home is important. This means setting up a guinea pig hutch. If you already keep guinea pigs, you'll need to create an area of neutral territory in which the new pets and the established ones can be introduced.
