Guinea pig life span could be that one thing that will make you decide on getting this pet...or not.
Life span of a pet can make you finally decide on a certain pet. Some people want to keep their pets for a very long time. Others like to start with pets that don't ask for a long term commitment. That way they can see if they are made to be pet owners.
Rodents are considered to be easy to keep pets that don't live long. Well guinea pigs can live pretty long.
Average guinea pig life span is 5 to 8 years, but don't be surprised if your pet guinea pig lives up to 10 years.
The kind of life you provide for your small pet is going to affect his life span. If you want to keep your guinea pig alive for a long time you need to make his life comfortable.
Get a cage that is big enough so that the piggy can move in it. A cage that is too small will limit his moves and that is not good for him. Clean it often and put fresh bedding every time you clean it.
