New Piggie Owners!
|Hi, and welcome to the
joys of piggie ownership! There is a lot of information available;
I'll touch on some major issues, and point you towards some resources
where you can find out more. Also, you may wish to sign up for the
program at my friend Tammy's Cavy
Madness site that pairs up experienced guinea pig owners
with inexperienced ones on a one-on-one basis. That way, you'll get
a "Pig Mentor" that can answer questions via email as you think of
them (feel free to e-mail me with questions as well).
|The most important things
for new piggie owners to know about are housing and proper nutrition,
as many health problems can be avoided by providing the best of both.
There will be health concerns, however, so be sure and check the Health
page for some advice on how to find a good guinea pig vet (if you
don't have one already!) and some other topics.
