Picking Up Your Guinea Pigs.

Picking them up is very important as you can hurt them if you pick them up wrong. To pick them up you use one hand to go under their belly and the other hand supports their butt. Don't squeeze to tight because they have fragile bones and you can break them. This sounds complicated (or at least it does to me) but once you actually pick one up it's pretty easy. When your letting them back into your cage you have to hold them a little tighter because they start squirming around to get back into their cage. I'll upload some pictures later on how I pick my piggies up. Please coment and ask questions so I can make my blog better


  1. I've never had a guinea pig, but they sound like loads of fun! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Excellent tips on handling your guinea pigs, you are so right they can get hurt if this is not done correctly. Do you let them exercise often?
