Hey I want to get a teddy guinea pig. They are so adorable! But I worry it might get lonely. My mother said i could have 1 so what do i do to make it happy? Just play with it and let it run around under supervision for a while? I will do what ever it takes to make it happy healthy and comfortable. Could I get help with this?

    These are very social animals, herd types actually, and they really should have a companion. If they must be kept alone you will need to provide daily interaction and make sure it never goes for too long without attention. Even still, it may get depressed, so you'll have to keep an eye out for that. The best thing to do is ask you mother to let you get two... easier for you and much easier for the guinea pig.

    Well if u do, guinea pigs are suppose to b kept in pairs or more. They're very social animals and become depressed easily from loneliness. But if u r home and spend a majority of ur time with it I'd recommend a friend. Employees in pets stores may say its ok to keep one but most don't really know what they're talking about. And b sure to give them plenty of space. Food and hay and vedgitbles daily. . And guinea pigs can't store vitamin c so give them orange slices often and u can even buy drops to put in their water. And don't forget lots of love.

    The problem is not that cavies cannot store vitamin c, the problem is they can not produce it. If you feed them oranges, they can get sweet tooth preventing them from eating normal pellets feed them green bell peppers cut out the seeds

    Just plan on spending as much time as you possibly can with it when you are home! Why can't you have two? Could you get a rabbit instead? Rabbits and guinea pigs often make good companions!

    Well Shannon I have the same problem but I got an answer: play with your guinea pig and give your guinea pig something to play with while you take a break from your guinea pig, hope I helped :)

    I am getting a guinea pig and have read on a website that getting a teddy bear can stop your guinea pig getting lonely.

I got a baby satin teddy bear guinea pig. She is not nearly as social as my american guinea pig, but I love her just the same. She has soft shiny fur and is carmel colored.

I have 7 guinea pigs the best is a teddy or American to me and if they do breed they need lots of care and if you have an abyssinan they can die quickly because my friend had one.

I had a rossette, and after like 8 years he died so I got an American short hair, but she died like a month later and now I want a teddy or silkie or maybe another rossette.

Hello,

Some very nice teddy's us-teddys you have.
And how nice that I have found as a Dutchman.
Maybe we can in the near future that help each other. I breed because with us-teddys.
Take a look at my other site-www.cs guineaspride.webs.com I have only a translation but if you look at "verwacht" to see what litters, and if you look at "te koop" to see what is for sale was.
In "fokzeugen" see my breeding sows female piggy's
In "fokberen" to see my breeding boars. male piggy's
I like to contact more foreign breeders to have my house even better than it already is.
If you know someone who have interest in my animals I would like to hear that.

Greetings Nathalie cs-guineas pride
