why is my guinea pig pooping so much? its normal looking poo but i swear there is a poo for every pellit he eats. Am i feeding him too much? I don't see how people in pet stores can keep the cages looking nice and neet..i have to pick his poo pellits like twice a day out of his cage..and there are about 20 each time. Is this normal? I only feed his a tablespoon of the food in the morning and 2 oranges (slices)..then the same in the evening...maybe a pinch of cabbage mix here and there. with his timothy hay.
It sounds normal. I switched to fleece in my cage and it makes it much easier to clean. I line the bottom of the cage with newspaper and than top that with a few towels. After that I put their fleece on top and use clips to hold it in place. I just vacuum it once a day and change it out (tossing the paper washing the rest) once a week. I have two that are poopers and it stays pretty clean. I love it I use to use the paper bedding and wood chips and all that and I will never go back. This is so much easier to clean and if you use a dark color with a funny pattern it does not show the poop so much. My cavies love it too! I have never seen so much popcorning.
