    How often to change the water bottle?

    It takes my GP at least a week to drink the water in the water bottle. Do I need to be changing it more often?

    YES! Guinea pigs back wash into their water bottle and the water bottles should be washed out once a day. I wash mine in the morning.

    I change mine daily. To not waste water I use the left over from the piggies to water my plants.

    Basically they just need a rinse and refill on a daily basis and a good washing at least once a week.

    I change mine every evening. And I wash once a month with rice and hot water.
