  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
“Compact, easy-to-care-for, and a bundle of fun” is how author Virginia Parker Guidry describes the irresistible guinea pig. Ideal pets for families with children, cavies (as they’re often called) are clean, odorless, gentle, loving, and entertaining. This Complete Care Made Easy Guinea Pigs encapsulates all the virtues of these perfect small mammals and gives new owners practical advice about how to care for them. In chapter one, “A Guinea What?” the author talks about the guinea pig’s natural history—they’re neither pigs nor from Guinea, but rather a rodent from Peru—and how scientists classify this very unique mammal. To decide whether the guinea pig is right for you, chapter two discusses who makes the ideal owner and presents thirteen popular breeds of longhaired and shorthaired guinea pigs and the colors available to pet owners today.

The chapter “Finding a Healthy Guinea Pig” offers solid advice about selecting the right guinea pig, where to purchase or adopt, and the preferred sex. A complete chapter on preparing for the guinea pig offers the reader excellent advice about acclimating the new pet to the home, selecting the best cage and hutch, and pig-proofing the home. The subject of understanding guinea pig behavior is discussed in the chapter “Living with a Guinea Pig,” which also covers daily-care topics such as feeding, grooming, handling, exercise, and litter box training. Keeping the guinea pig healthy is discussed in “Staying Healthy,” a chapter that covers preventing illness, choosing a veterinarian, and common ailments. The final chapter “Just for the Fun of It!” explores games, toys, activities, and showing guinea pigs. The appendix includes lists of pig-specific clubs, organizations, and websites. Glossary of terms and index included.

Guinea pigs are the sweetest animals, they love to be hugged and cuddled and handled by human beings. They are very social creatures who prefer to live with at least one other guinea pig and love to be in groups. They are little creatures but they like a lot of space to live and play in. They are generally healthy animals but are susceptible to certain illnesses such as fungal skin issues and parasitic problems. However, once they are properly housed and fed and taken to the veterinarian when they are ill, they will lead a fun-filled and healthy life. Their diet has to comprise of fruits, vegetable and pellets and they have to have hay and vitamin C. To ensure that they are healthy the pet owner will need to pay close attention to their eyes, ears, mouth and bottom to ensure that there is no discharge. Guinea pigs are very easy to breed. However, it is recommended that your sow be at least 3 months old before you breed her, even though they can become impregnated from as early as about five weeks’ old. Your male guinea pig should be between three and four months old before you begin to breed him.

  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
This is our sixth set of Happy, Healthy Pet titles. Like the others, they are books pet owners can turn to for the essential information they need to raise a healthy pet.

All books contain information on:

  • feeding
  • housing
  • grooming
  • health care
  • what to expect from the pet
  • basic training
As our series expands and focuses on different kinds of pets, the emphasis remains on making the pet a companion. In addition, owners of more unusual pets will particularly appreciate the expert advice in these books because professional care for their animals may be difficult to come by. As always, the instruction is from expert—people who know their pet intimately, but also remember what it was like to have one for the first time.

Happy, Healthy Pet guides are rich with professional quality color photos and are designed to be enjoyable and easy to learn from.
