Care

Cages:

Hairless Guinea Pigs should never be kept outside. When building a cage, you should always imagine if you had to live in that space.

If you think that it is too small then it is; always make sure their isn't over crowding.

I build my cages out of wire C&C panels. I Litter Box train My Pigs and use a fleece bottom with dog training pads under that.

I believe these to be perfect cages for cavies and keep your piggy happy and healthy.




Outdoors:

Do not leave your hairless guinea pig outdoors for long periods of time, and always make sure to keep an eye on them.

They should be kept in an enclosed area where no predators can reach them. Also only take them outside if the weather is nire and warm.


Temperature:

I keep my Skinnies & Baldwins around 75-80 degrees.

I feel as though they like this temperature and they tend to come out and enjoy their surroundings more.


.Food:

I feed all my cavies Buckeye Guinea Pig diet and orchard grass / alfalfa hay mix on a daily basis.

They also receive lots of greens such as roman lettuce, parsley, spinach, and celery.

I also feed them apples, tomatoes, bananas, green peppers, carrots, and fresh cut grass.




Bathing:

I may do things a little differently than other breeders but I believe it keeps my Skinnies happy and healthy.

I would recommend giving your hairless guinea pig a bath once every two weeks otherwise their skin will become very dingy just like our skin would if we never took showers,

So defiantly give your hairless guinea pig a bath as much as you want. Do not use any types of shampoos with fragrances, I Only Bath them with COLD PRESS COCUNUT OIL.

Guinn pigs cant swim!!!!!! They do not like getting wet!!!!! Take a small amount of coconut oil and rub it all over your pig. then wipe off the excuses with a soft clean cloth,
