Socializing with Your Guinea Pig
Guinea pigs are social animals so your pet will have fun while interacting with you. He might become lonely if left alone for most of the date. Put your guinea pig’s enclosure in a place where he can see what is going on as he interacts with your family. However, if you put it directly within busy household traffic, your guinea pig may not get the privacy and quiet time he needs to rest. Schedule daily playtime outside your guinea pig’s enclosure for exercise, socialization and mental stimulation. Encourage all family members to interact with your guinea pig. If your schedule makes it that your guinea pig will be alone all day, consider adopting a companion guinea pig. These two guinea pigs can keep each other company and play throughout the day. Prioritize visiting with your guinea pig(s) when you get home. For more information, contact your animal hospital San Antonio, TX.
