Guinea Pig


Price: Male : 1100 INR | Female : 1100 INR | Pair : 2000INR

Description: If there is a proper guinea pig care, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you live – guinea pig is a fun and rewarding pet to have around. Don’t be scared – guinea pigs are not really demanding when comparing them to some other popular pets, but they have continuous need for attention and gentle care. As they live up to about 8 years (in average), they are a long-term commitment, and not just a temporary casual fun. If properly cared for, they will be in your life for a long time!

Considered to be a rare behavioural pattern, but not unusual one. Guinea pig can bite you from several reasons:
If it is upset, angry, frightened, defensive or annoyed
Could be the result of an accident; for example, if you’ve been handling food, guinea pig may make the mistake of thinking your finger is food. It is recommended to wash your hands to prevent such mistakes and to keep your fingers where they belong
They may bite because of a skin problem like mites so holding, stroking or touching a guinea pig with mites can cause them severe discomfort and they’ll try anything to stop the pain
