Guinea Pig Insurance Alternative
Guinea Pigs have an average lifespan of 4 to 5 years and aren’t always the type of low-maintenance pet that many people assume. They will need just as much love, care, and attention as any other type of pet.
Before you bring a Guinea Pig home, make sure that you can provide a clean and comfortable housing area for your new pet. While Guinea Pig needs some time to themselves, they’re also social creatures that benefit from plenty of exercise, enrichment activities, and social interaction.
You may take your Guinea Pig out of their house to play and run around in your house; make sure that you make sure that your house is safe for them to run and play. Your Guinea Pig is likely to chew on computer wires and piles of paper. Ensure that these things are put up and away when they are out playing.
You also need to have the time to care for your Guinea pig, clean their cage every few days, and provide your new Guinea Pig with proper nutrition. While your Guinea Pig depends on you for good health, you can depend on Pet Assure to cover the costs associated with providing high-quality veterinary care.
What Does Your Guinea Pig Need?
Pet Assure provides financial protection against a wide range of Guinea Pig health conditions. Some of these include:
- Arthritis: As your guinea pig gets older, they can develop arthritis in their joints. You may have to give your guinea pig medication to help decrease the pain and inflammation to help them feel much better.
- Bladder infection: Guinea Pigs can develop bladder infections or even bladder stones. If your Guinea Pig is not eating the proper diet, these can quickly form, causing a lot of pain and discomfort for your Guinea Pig. Your vet can help determine if your Guinea Pig has a bladder infection or a bladder stone.
- Tumors: Guinea Pigs can develop masses just like any other animal. If you notice a growth on your Guinea Pigs, it would be best for them to see your vet right away. Depending on where it is located and what it looks like, your vet may recommend that your Guinea Pigs have surgery to remove this mass.
