Here at Petware House we a carry a variety of cage sizes for the Guinea pig. While shopping you may see cages marked for Guinea pig use but are too small. Let Petware House help you determine the best pet cage for your animal, we have a large collection of cages that are perfect for both your home and pet.
Here at Petware House, we firmly believe that that your Gerbil will require more space than the industry suggested two-square feet per Guinea Pig. Keeping an animal of this size in such a small cage is in humane. As a result, we highly suggest a larger cage, which is of course, within your budget.
Keep in mind that while some enclosures encourage climbing, and diggings, your Guinea Pig will need floor space and items such as platforms and ramps to encourage climbing. These items are essentials for happy, healthy Guinea Pig. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us know.
When considering a cage size, keep in mind that your pet will require enough room for his or her dish, nest area, bathroom area as well as area where he or she can explore and get some exercise.
Providing sufficient room the Guinea Pig shouldn’t be a fuss so as a general rule of thumb, we’ve compiled a list of respectable cage sizes based on the number of Guinea pigs you have or plan on keeping.
One guinea pig: seven-and-a-half square feet cage (minimum), but more is better; generally thirty inches by thirty-six inches is a good size.
Two guinea pigs: seven-and-a-half square feet (minimum), but ten-and-a-half square feet is preferred; generally thirty inches by fifty inches is a good size.
Three guinea pigs: ten-and-a-half-square square feet (minimum), but thirteen square feet is preferred; generally thirty inches to sixty-two inches 62" is a good size.
Four guinea pigs: Thirteen square feet (minimum), but more is better; generally thirty inches by seventy-six inches is a good size.
Keep you Guinea Pig in a safe, environmentally controlled room, away from heating and cooling duct outlets as well as the direct sun, fireplaces, stoves, etc. Ideally room temperature should be sixty five to seventy five degrees Fahrenheit for Guinea Pig comfort. Keep in mind that Guinea pigs cannot sweat and if they become to warm are susceptible to heat stroke.
Do not leave your pet in an unheated room, the garage or wine cellar. Place your cage in a draft-free area of your home, preferably away from windows and on an elevated surface.
Ensure your pet’s environment is clean free of dampness as this may promote mould growth in their hay and bedding which can lead your pet become sick.
