Review by eclecticdodo
A short guide to owning a guinea pig. I've previously owned mice, rats and rabbits, and I'd done some research on the web, so I was fairly confident I'd know it all. However there are some significant differences accross the species which this book clearly explained. For example, did you know a guinea pig should only have about an egg cup full of pellet feed a day? The rest of the diet should be made up of hay, grass, fresh leaves and vegetables. Speaking of vegetables, root veg like carrots should only be given occasionally. Also, soft wood saw dust is bad for them and increases the risk of liver disease, so why is it sold with pictures of guinea pigs on the packet?
