After hours of research on not only guinea pig care but also the animals themselves, i've discovered a lot of cool things about these amazing creatures. So without further a due, here are some of my favorite guinea pig facts!
1. Guinea pigs were a large part in the contribution to the discovery of Vitamin C! As many of us know, it's essential for us to add vitamin C into our piggies' diet. That's because like human beings, guinea pigs aren't able to naturally produce this Vitamin.

I still have the cage that Mable's previous owners kept her in and the cage that Chicken and Waffles' previous owners kept them in; I use them as temporary cages for when I do a full cage change. The pigs are only in them for 30 minutes while we change out the cages, but they manage to pee everywhere in them. Tonight, I was measuring those 2 cages to make a liner for them so the pigs wouldn't have to be on wet newspaper when I do a full cage change out.
I was shocked at how small they
Last month, I posted about Cherry losing so much weight due to what we thought were overgrown teeth. We took her in for a molar trimming, and as it turned out, she actually has a deformity in her tongue which is why she was only able to eat mash and couldn't eat solid food well. The vet did a very light planning of her molars that day.
Cherry is doing so good! The molar trimming really helped her; she's learned to eat hay by using the side of her mouth and is steadily gaining weight
I went to the Uhaul store in town the other day to see if they had any of the recycled denim pads. Since the University of Iowa campus is downtown, all the students are getting ready to move back and Uhaul had stocked up on moving supplies. There were piles of rental furniture pads sitting outside, so we talked to an employee asking if we could have the old rentals when they were ready to throw them away. The employee said he would talk to his manager and get back to us.
