Because most pet stores don’t carry big guinea pig cages, many guinea pigs end up in a home that is much too small to promote good health. Your doctor advises regular exercise as well as a good diet for your health and well-being. And the situation is no different for your guinea pigs. They need exercise on a regular basis and those tiny department store rodent cages are definitely not the place to get it.

The fitness craze has been with us since the 70s. Many people are hooked on an exercise program. So first thing in the morning — or perhaps after a hard day’s work — they need to get in an exercise session. So they’ll change into a t-shirt and shorts, put on the running shoes, and head down to the… bathroom? Closet? Laundry room?

There’s a reason you don’t see people exercising in minivans, phone booths or garden sheds — there’s not enough room. When people want to go running, their choices are to use a large area in their home to exercise or go somewhere outside the home which is suitable for exercise.  (A third alternative for humans is to use a machine like a treadmill, stationary bike or elliptical trainer to simulate a larger space.  Unfortunately, scientific studies have shown that this method is unworkable for guinea pigs as mp3 ear buds won’t fit in their ears.)

Most of us don’t have a home large enough to exercise without the aid of machines so we go outside or to the gym or to some sort of park — somewhere with open space and room to run.

The same is true for your pigs. They either exercise in their cage, outside of their cage — or not at all.

So what am I getting at here?

My point is that pet cavies must either have big guinea pig cages; regular daily time outside of their cage — or both. Big guinea pig cages are the best solution for the owner. They do not have to commit to giving their piggies daily exercise sessions. Having a spacious guinea pig cage and arranging for daily exercise is the best solution for the pig.

Doing neither is no solution. It is unhealthy for the pig and increases the chance of larger and more frequent veterinarian bills as well as the household trauma that comes with having a sick or dying family pet.
