Most pet store employees are not cavy experts, regardless of what they might claim, and they are trained to sell productsmany of which are not in the best interests of your pet or are simply a waste of money.

Wasteful and harmful products include:

  • Vitamin C drops for water
  • Plastic "exercise" balls
  • Treats with yogurt or seeds

100% of the money we raise at our shop goes o the care of our resident guinea pigs.

Cube & Coroplast Habitats are Required

Visit this website:

Piggie Poo requires that all of our adopted piggys are housed in C&C habitats as pet store cages are just too small. Bigger is better, so opt for the largest cage possible. Habitats ordered through our Squeek Shop are made to your specs in a variety of colors. Tops are available too, though not required.


Pet stores will tell you that small cages are fine. NOT TRUE!

Small cages have been shown to directly contribute to serious health conditions like:

  • Bumblefoot
  • Impaction
  • Emotional distress
  • Boredom
  • Behavioral problems

Ramps & Lofts Are Not Recommended

Piggie Poo does not recommend two-level cages as ramp and lofts are opportunities for falls and injuries. Piggys are ground dwelling creatures and the most important thing to consider when selecting your C&C Habitat is open floor space i.e. square footage.
