Our product developers at Midwest Homes for Pets watched very closely how guinea pigs play, eat, sleep, and interact among themselves as well as with their owner/caretakers. That clued our people into a number of things. First and foremost, they discovered that guinea pigs have an essential need for space that lets them exercise, explore, and socialize freely – without being dependent on their caretaker’s schedule.
Experts in the veterinary field, along with guinea pig enthusiasts worldwide, recommend the following minimum square footage of space for the general health and well-being of your guinea pig:
1 guinea pig – 7 sq. ft. minimum
2 guinea pigs – 8 sq. ft. minimum
3 guinea pigs – 10 sq. ft. minimum
4 guinea pigs – 12 sq. ft. minimum
Additionally, MidWest discovered that the more spacious the area provided, the easier it is for the caretaker to clean and maintain than a conventional, more restrictive enclosure. Result? Fit, healthy, well-adjusted guinea pigs that are more entertaining to watch and a relationship between them and their owners that’s a whole lot happier!
