Other ways to keep your Guinea Pig Cool in the Hot Weather…

Buy a Pet Cooling Mat to place under the cage…

You can find pet cooling mats in stores such as Home Bargains and B&M for as low as £3, simply place it under part of your Guinea Pig cage to give your pet an area where they can get relief from the heat.

Avoid putting your Guinea Pig Cage in Direct Sunlight…

If you have your Guinea Pig Cage in direct sunlight move it to a shaded area straight away. Direct sunlight can cause the cage to rapidly heat which can pose a risk to your Guinea Pig..

Don’t keep your Guinea Pigs in a Shed or Garage during summer months…

Places such as garages and sheds are poorly ventilated and the temperature tends to rise quickly, many small pet owners have lost pets they have kept in Shed’s and Garages due to overheating.

During summer months it’s wise to invest in an ‘outdoor run’ for your Guinea Pigs.
