How many pigs live?

Guinea pigs are among the most popular domesticated rodents, along with mice and hamsters. Before you start this rodent itself, you should find out how long the pigs live.

The average lifespan of a guinea pig is 8 years. How many guinea pigs live - depends on their owners. The life span of a mumps is primarily affected by its diet, which needs special attention. In the first place in importance is hay for gilts, which is necessary for the digestive tract and for their teeth. In the second place - cereal feed, and only in the third - juicy food: vegetables and fruits. Pay attention to a certain peculiarity: the body of pigs does not absorb vitamins of groups B and K. It is absorbed only when food passes through the digestive tract, i.e. when eating your own litter. Therefore, do not forbid them to eat their droppings, if you notice this behavior behind them - this is normal. Moreover, if your mumps disrupts digestion - dissolve a couple of droppings in water and water the mucus with this solution from a syringe.This procedure will help restore the microflora in the intestines.

In nature, mumps live on average 4-5 years. How many years guinea pigs live at home is the result of many years of breeding. The world record for the life span of a guinea pig was recorded in 2006: 14 years and 10 and a half months.
