Exercise and Your Guinea Pig

Your guinea pig needs regular exercise to keep healthy and happy. Since he will spend most of his time in his enclosure, deck it out with fun apparatus that encourage movement. Your pig will enjoy ramps or PVC pipe tunnels. However, don’t put so many things in the enclosure that it is difficult to move around. And also consider purchasing a large enough pen to give him room to run and hop about. Do not give your guinea pig an exercise wheel for his enclosure or an exercise ball for outside fun since these items put too much curve on his back and can cause injury. Your guinea pig needs about a half hour minimally for daily exercise and socialization outside the enclosure. Let him run around and climb but always supervise him so he won’t get lost of injured.  Schedule an appointment at this website veterinary clinic Pasadena, MD
