Benefits of raising guinea pigs – Prospects of guinea pigs

       What are the disadvantages of raising Dutch pigs?

       Nowadays, keeping pets is a common phenomenon. More and more people deal with pets in order to relieve their loneliness and anxiety. There are cats, dogs, birds, turtles, and even Alpaca However, a small number of people also have personalized pets, such as Dutch pigs. If you haven’t heard the name of the Dutch pig, do you think it’s similar to a domestic pig?

       In fact, the Dutch pig is a kind of guinea pig family rodents, namely guinea pigs, also known as guinea pigs, guinea pigs and so on. In fact, the Dutch pig has long been extinct in the wild. Before the extinction, the Dutch pig lived in the original grassland habitat in the wild, and later existed as a pet around the world. It is not big, relatively short limbs, cute appearance, is a very cute pet. But the sense of smell and hearing are more developed, the courage is also very small, can make a strong response to some sensitive stimuli, classified as nocturnal animals. Therefore, if you want to raise a Dutch pig, you must understand it in advance. Don’t blindly raise it. Try to understand the precautions of raising Dutch pig in advance, so as not to be too comfortable after raising. So what are the disadvantages of Dutch pigs?

       01, heavy body odor

       If you want to raise a Dutch pig, you must take care of its living environment. The Dutch pig is not too dirty, but its body odor is heavy, but clean owners can’t often take a bath for it because of its heavy body odor. Especially in winter, it should not be more than once a month. Of course, can also start from other aspects to remove the odor, the host can frequently clean up, the best in its excreta under the sawdust and other cushion materials, can reduce the odor emission.

       02. If you get angry, you may catch someone

       The Dutch pig used to be a gregarious animal. It had a bad habit of catching people. When it was in a bad mood, it would hide in a small corner. At this time, the owner had better not reach out and touch it to avoid being scratched. In addition, the Dutch pig is less daring and more alert. It is better for the owner not to frighten it casually so as to avoid being scratched or bitten by it.

       03, nocturnal animals, make noise at night

       Because the Dutch pig is a nocturnal animal, it will inevitably make some sounds at night when it is the most energetic, which will disturb the sleep of its owner. When a Dutch pig is angry, it may also make a call. Therefore, if the host is afraid of affecting his sleep, he can put it in the living room, so that he will not disturb his rest.

       04, bacterial transmission

       In fact, keeping any pet will inevitably have bacteria spread, of course, Dutch pig is no exception, but due to the stronger resistance of human beings, the bacteria carried by Dutch pigs have little impact on human beings, so owners need not worry too much. Pay attention to observe the health condition of domestic Dutch pig, and clean it up. If you are really worried, the owner can also take the Dutch pig to the pet hospital for physical examination within a fixed time, so as to enhance the awareness of protection and health.

       Slow cooked, too late to sleep, can eat, very smelly.

       It’s better for Dutch pigs to eat professional food, not to feed them casually. Drinking water should be clean and cool, otherwise it is easy to get wet tail disease. Moore Dutch pig and rabbit and hamster grow like teeth. In addition to not feeding too soft food, you should also prepare some molar toys. The Dutch pig is a nocturnal animal, so we play with it at night. Dutch pigs eat at night, so you should eat more before you go to bed.

       Dutch pigs are very tasty, especially in summer. Try feeding a deodorant rat food to the Dutch pigs. In addition, you should always change the mat, or you should often bath the Dutch pig. Unlike hamsters, Dutch pigs can be raised together. However, we should pay attention to the choice of body shape, otherwise the weakness will be eliminated. A man and a woman should be psychologically prepared and grow up.

       Piglets are usually fat and don’t usually stand up. Many people sometimes like to lure them to stand up with food. Little Dutch pigs will stand on their necks to get enough food, and sometimes even fall down, but I don’t recommend that, at least don’t let them fall.

       When they were children, maybe it was not a big problem, but after six months, they became fat, so it was easy to stare at them. When you give them food, you should be careful not to let their heads fall too far.

       The disadvantage of raising a Dutch pig is that it has a strong taste, and it needs to take a bath regularly. There are no other disadvantages.

       However, there are some reasons for raising Dutch pigs

       1. Although the Dutch pig will control the right amount of it, you must keep the pot full at all times, because it may need to eat at any time, and the pig should choose ceramic or stainless steel with certain weight and not easy to be knocked over.

       2. Most animals can have vitamin C in their bodies, with the exception of Dutch pigs. Raising a Dutch pig needs to supplement vitamin C for it. While feeding special feed, you can match some vegetables and fruits for it to eat. It’s a good idea to give it fruits after eating.

       3. Food timothy grass must be provided, and an unlimited amount of feed should be added in the morning and in the evening (unlimited alfalfa hay was recommended six months ago, and unlimited timothy grass was recommended after six months).

       4. Some taboo food: first of all, bean products, such as: tofu, tofu contains more calcium, which will react with oxalic acid in some vegetables to produce calcium oxalate, which will have a harmful effect on the body of guinea pigs

       5. Secondly, the guinea pig has a very sensitive sense of smell, and will have a disgust to some food with heavy smell, so try not to feed it food with heavy smell.

       Special attention: it has too many natural enemies. When you go out, you should be careful to eat rats, cats, dogs and other animals.

       What you should know before you get a pig:

       1. Dutch pig is also a constant temperature animal. Although it has fur, it is still afraid of cold and heat, and likes to live in a warm and quiet environment.

       2. Too strong light, will cause pig eye stab, pigs are naturally afraid of water, so do not let pigs long-term exposure to strong sunlight, do not try to let pigs swim.

       3. Although they have a certain mind, they are pets after all, and they may not understand every word of you. They will not change their nests and clean up their excrement. Therefore, please be patient and loving. You should clean and take care of them by yourself. Regular cleaning can make you have a clean pig.

       4. Pets have more or less some flavor, pigs are no exception, so people who are particularly sensitive to smell should consider whether they can accept it.

       5. Pigs may not be able to accompany you for life, but a master is its life. Pigs are adapted to family rearing and have no independent living ability. Compared with general rodent pets, pigs have a longer life span and generally can survive for 7-10 years under healthy conditions. Therefore, be prepared for long-term rearing before adoption. If you adopt, please cherish your time with it. Don’t let it go at will. Because of special reasons, it can’t be raised. Please look for a family who can continue to take care of it.

       6. Although pigs can be raised close to human beings, don’t expect the pigs that have just been brought home to get together with you. There is always a stage for them to adapt to. Please keep them patiently and wait for them to be familiar with the home environment and adapt to the changes of living environment.

       7. Because of genetic factors, pigs are naturally unable to get vitamin C. lack of vitamin C will cause septicemia and cause pig death! So we should pay attention to it.

       8. In the early stage of Dutch pig feeding, the equipment input is about 100 ~ 200 yuan, and after that, the minimum monthly cost of each pig is about 30 ~ 50 yuan. Before adoption, you need to consider your financial situation before making a decision.

       Dutch pigs smell big and bad, with fleas and lice, and may carry bacteria, which can affect health.

       Dutch researchers point out that rodents like Dutch pigs may carry bacteria that cause severe pneumonia. Dr. Bart Ramakers, a Dutch intensive care physician and the author of the latest report, pointed out that doctors and veterinary doctors should pay more attention to the fact that doctors and veterinary doctors did not think that the pathogen could infect humans, but this study found that the pathogen could be transmitted from Dutch pigs to humans. The bacteria are also found in rabbits, dogs and horses.

       When Dutch pigs are constantly rubbing their bodies (especially ears) and shedding hair, their owners should suspect whether they are infected with fleas or lice. These parasites not only affect the health of Dutch pigs, but also can infect their owners. Under normal circumstances, as long as the owners ensure that the Dutch pig living environment is clean and regular disinfection, there will be no infection of Atrina or lice. If they are infected by ectoparasites, they can be easily eliminated by insecticides. It should be noted that when the Dutch pigs are infected with parasites, their owners should immediately isolate them and feed them until the parasites are completely removed.

       Skin disease is another susceptible disease of Dutch pigs. Skin diseases caused by mold can cause hair loss in the diseased parts of Dutch pigs, and this disease can also be transmitted to people and their own species. Once it is found that Dutch pigs suffer from this disease, the owner should immediately do three things to treat the Dutch pigs in time, disinfect their houses and feed them in isolation. You should also pay attention to the cleaning of your hands to prevent infection by mold. The blue pigs like to eat fruits very much. If you feed grapes, cut the grapes in half and make sure there are no seeds in them. Don’t feed bananas to Dutch pigs! Because bananas are rich in potassium, they can cause urinary tract diseases in Dutch pigs.

       The disadvantage of raising Dutch pigs is that they taste very strong, especially in summer.

       The method of Dutch pig breeding is as follows:

       1. Guinea pigs are also called guinea pigs, Dutch mice, Dutch pigs, sea pigs, etc., hereinafter referred to as Dutch pigs.

       2. Dutch pigs are also warm blooded animals. Although they have fur, they are still afraid of cold and heat. They like to live in a warm and quiet environment.

       Too strong light can cause puncture in the pig’s eyes. Pigs are naturally afraid of water, so don’t let them be exposed to strong sunlight for a long time, and don’t let them swim.

       3. There are two ways to raise pigs: cages, as the name suggests, in cages. Its advantages are easy to manage and easy to clean. The disadvantage is that pigs are angry or may eat bites and sounds that affect the environment.

       4. Free range, as opposed to cage, has the advantage of making it easier for pigs to adapt to their owners. The disadvantage is that pigs who don’t go to the toilet are just nightmares, urinating or defecating.

       5. The staple food is Dutch pig food and grass. Both are necessary. Infinity, other similar fruits and vegetables, you can give him a snack.

       Although the Dutch pig controls its own amount, it must keep the food bowl full because it may need to eat at any time. It should be made of ceramic or stainless steel. It has a certain weight and is not easy to overturn. Some taboo food: first of all, bean products, such as: tofu, tofu contains more calcium, which will react with oxalic acid in some vegetables to form calcium oxalate, which will have a harmful effect on the body of guinea pigs.

       6. The first time, the most common standard: a cage 30, a packet of 2.5 kg of food (a pig enough to eat two months) 21 yuan. Two pounds of grass (a pig a month) 20 yuan, a total of more than 70 yuan. This is basically the minimum investment. If you want better cages or food, it depends on your financial situation.

       There is no harm in raising Dutch pigs. You just need to master the feeding skills.

       What Dutch pigs can eat

       1. Fruit. Dutch pigs like to eat fruit very much. It can be eaten: apple, orange, watermelon can also (watermelon as little as possible feeding will be thinning). If you feed grapes, cut the grapes in half and make sure there are no seeds in them.

Wash vegetables before feeding.

       3. Snacks. Give some alfalfa and berry snacks, oil-free raw sunflower kernels. These things are very oily. Pay attention not to give too much each time.

       4. Grass.

       ¢Ù Timothy grass: suitable for daily consumption, it can help digestion, help pigs to regulate their intestines and stomach, prevent pigs from being too fat, and can also play the role of grinding teeth.

       ¢Ú Alfalfa: proper feeding (2-3 times a week), because alfalfa is very rich in calcium, too much intake for a long time can lead to kidney stones in pigs and pigs, but Dutch pigs prefer to eat alfalfa.

       What Dutch pigs can’t eat

       1. Vegetables. Other vegetables that should be avoided are spinach, onions, leeks, potatoes, cabbage, cauliflower, and lettuce. These foods can cause diarrhea, bloating and poisoning in Dutch pigs.

       2. Chocolate, coffee. Chocolate contains theobromine that can poison Dutch pigs, and not coffee, which can paralyze the heart. Snack class all people eat snacks are not allowed, in addition to the taste is too heavy, which add some chemical ingredients, may cause harm to the Dutch pig’s body!

       Dutch pig, or guinea pig. The biggest harm of raising Dutch pig to human body is health problem. Dutch pig is easy to carry some germs. If it is not cleaned in time during the feeding process, it is easy to be infected to human beings. Therefore, it is necessary to keep the environment clean and tidy.

It can be eaten for a long time in a big bag of tens of yuan. In addition, guinea pigs must be supplemented with vitamin C. if they can’t produce VC, they need to rely on the supply to supplement the demand of VC. They can only eat a little fruit and fresh vegetables every day (guinea pigs lacking VC will have weak hind feet). In addition, be sure to change enough clean water every day.

       2. Temperature, when it’s too hot in summer, don’t put them in the air-conditioning room. Once the air conditioner is turned on and off, they are easy to catch a cold, and the little pet is very troublesome to catch a cold. You fill a mineral water bottle with water, freeze it into ice in the refrigerator, and place it close to the cage (you can put some salt in the water to slow the ice melting). Or find them a piece of tile, metal and so on, you can enjoy the cool. Don’t get in the sun.

       3. Clean. In summer, you can give your guinea pig a bath. It’s better not to use human bath gel.

       Have a good time

       If a Dutch pig is a pet, pay attention to disease prevention and parasite prevention, do a good job in cage disinfection, generally there is no problem. At present, guinea pigs have fewer common diseases than other animals, even much less than cats and dogs. However, it is worth noting that some diseases of Dutch pigs, such as Salmonella, pasteurella and Escherichia coli, are zoonotic diseases. However, it is interesting that at present, it seems that the infection is usually from human to Dutch mice, and very few from Dutch mice to humans, because the impact of these two pathogens on human beings is very small, and most people do not have any reaction after infection (weak people will have mild reactions, Enterobacter and Salmonella can cause abdominal discomfort, and Pasteurella can cause cold and upper respiratory tract Infection can be solved by taking two amoxicillin tablets). Most people are carriers of these pathogens (these bacteria are commonly found in most animals, such as rabbits, cats and dogs). Therefore, in the guinea pig farm, strict management will be carried out on the people entering the breeding area to prevent the transmission of diseases to guinea pigs. If the guinea pigs get sick, these diseases are fatal. In terms of parasites, Dutch mice, like other pets, have various parasites, such as mites, lice and fleas. Lice generally eat hair (guinea pigs eat lice), there is no condition for the human body. Washing your hair or taking a bath will do it. Flea headache write, but Dutch rats have flea is not likely, because they are very small, flea living space is not big, if there are and jump on people, as long as the clothes are washed with water bubble, then in the bath, finally disinfect the room. Mite is the most headache. This small bug is commonly found in all kinds of animals (people also have it, and 75% of the people are infected with mites). Because mites are generally subcutaneous and have no obvious symptoms on the surface, treatment and detection are relatively difficult. At present, it is generally solved by washing face with soap to remove mites. Parasites in the body are relatively safe. Parasites in the intestines of herbivores generally do not run to meat eaters, but some should pay attention to.

       It is not suitable for people with allergic constitution

Therefore, this animal no longer exists in nature. Guinea pigs play an important role in the folk culture of South America. They are not only a source of food, but also a source of medicine and religious rituals. With the progress of society, guinea pigs are no longer just sacrifice or food, more people take this kind of cute little animals as pets!
