If you feed your guinea pig beets you don't want to give it a lot because then their pee will turn red. Beets are sweet, so they really like them and can eat too many; mine did.

So, do give them beets in moderation as well as the beet tops.

it is most certainly possible to 'toilet train' pet rats, and guinea pigs are nothing mroe than giant rats, so it should be possible

here is a rat toilet training guide: animals.mom.me/train-rats-use-litter-box-10648.html

My guinea pig keeps biting my shirt and doesn't let go when I go to put him in his cage. He has a brother that fights with him sometimes and they're the same age as each other.

Why would he do that?

Your little friend may not want to go back into his cage so he bites your clothing to try to stop you!!! I hope you take your friends out of their cages at least once or twice per day to explore. I'm sure you would not like being stuck in a little cage day after day!

I have a bin cage which is connected to my old hamster cage. I wanted to ask if during the day can I keep the cage door open so he can get out of it and roam in my room and at night close the door of the cage so he can sleep. Please get back to me as soon as you can.

I think your friend would like this! Be sure to check your entire room for hazards-electric cords, shoes and other chewable items, food scraps your friend should not eat, etc.

You must be absolutely certain that your friend cannot escape from your room at any time as he may find trouble all by himself!!!

I just recently have become the mini guinea rescue in my town. I somehow became the lucky owner of 7 piggies, 4 males and 3 females. I'm trying to figure out the best way to house them using the grid cages. I am not sure of their ages and really would like to let them all "see" each other, but would prefer to separate the girls and boys that people have already had paired. I am trying to avoid fighting and babies and cages taking up too much room. Please help.

First of all, if you do not have a license or permit to be a "rescue", do not rescue animals. You could get in legal trouble.

Second, the only way to be sure there will never be any more babies is to have them spayed and neutered.

You need to be serious about this if you're going to do it. Apply to be a licensed small animal rescue. Have all animals spayed, neutered and vaccinated. You'll have to keep the cages clean, feed them and give them fresh water every day. You'll have to be prepared to care for pregnant females and infants, and know what to do if they fight or something else goes wrong. This means studying.

If you can't afford all this or don't have the space or the time, I'd suggest contacting your closest small animal rescue and making an appointment to drop them off or have them picked up.

How long is the Guinea pig supposed to be fed and how much? Does a Guinea pig need a shower before and after it awakes. Does it need a bath in the night?

My late Carmel (a Dachshund) had a guinea pig as a best friend when she was a pup. My friend who owned the G.P. fed her fruits and veggies and special hay twice a day. There is almost no need to bathe them. It isn't good for them at all

They need a vet who specializes in guinea pigs and small creatures as their teeth get wonky and need regular filing. It can be dangerous for them if this is neglected. Carmel's pal lived a lovely 6 years, which was amazing as sadly they have short life spans.

I just got a Guinea pig, my first one ever. I have noticed that he likes to stay in one corner of his cage, he also uses the bathroom in this same corner, is this normal? I'm worried he's going to get sick from being in his own waste? I clean that area more than once a day, but why is he sitting in his own pee like nothing's wrong?
