Caring For Your Guinea Pig’s Teeth
Guinea pig’s teeth grow continuously throughout their lives. Thus your guinea pig’s teeth could become overgrown or even cross over each other without appropriate care. He could have difficulty eating, and experience pain, and cuts inside his mouth. Examine your guinea pig’s teeth often and check that they are straight and relatively short. Also look for excessive discoloration or broken teeth that may need medical attention. Give your guinea pig plenty of timothy hay and wood blocks to gnaw so he can wear down his teeth normally. Nibbling on hard vegetables help keep your pig’s teeth trim. Choose high-nutritional vegetables such as carrots and squash. Choose foods that are high in vitamin C to keep teeth healthy. Seek medical care if you see any dental issues or if your guinea pig has trouble eating. Make an appointment with your veterinarian Dallas, GA for further evaluation and treatment as needed.
