I have two guinea pigs and I've noticed how rarely they drink, almost to the point where there's either barely or no water gone from their water bottle each day. They do drink eventually, but it takes a very long time. This isn't out of the usual for them, it's been like this since I've had them. They are behaving perfectly normal and eating regularly. Despite this, I still worry that something may be wrong. Should I be concerned? If so, what can I do?

When this happened to me, I just rinsed my vegetables in water so that they would indirectly drink the water from the vegetables.

Maybe? I feed them a diet of both pellets and veggies, and they get two cups of vegetables a day. I'm not quite sure that really constitutes as a lot of veggies though?
