I have a Guinea Pig that seems to struggle with getting water from his water bottle. It seems he has a problem with fitting his mouth around the nozzle. I do not know his age but according to the vet he is probably a little under 6 months old. I have been trying to find a water bottle that has a smaller nozzle but no pet stores around me carry any and I cannot find any online (everything I search just shows me normal sized water bottles).

I was also wondering is it normal/okay if I just give water in a little dish?

But yeah, if anyone can link to good water bottles with small nozzles that would be great! Thanks

Whereabouts are you located? Country, City or state. Not your actual address

You might try hanging a shallow coffee cup on the side of the cage for water. I do this for pellets. It stays clean, can’t be tipped, and is easily reached.
