How To Pick A Wooden Guinea Pig Cage

We’ll talk about more than just the wood of these wooden guinea pig cages but it’s an important part of choosing the best one for yourself. We’ll discuss sizes, the optimal size for one guinea pig, outdoor applications, indoor applications, and plenty of other things all in this buying guide.

Wood Types – The two most commonly used woods in making these cages are fir wood and pine wood. Pinewood is an aromatic wood so it should be processed to eliminate the scent or be covered with a safe for pets finish. It’s always best to choose a wooden cage for guinea pigs for more than one reason but one is that it’s the closest to their natural habitat.

Guinea Pig Behavior – Guinea pigs area cavies meaning their teeth grow nonstop and they’ll munch on things to wear them down. Often, the wood on their cage will be a target to chew on which is just fine and can’t be stopped unless you get them hay to chew on.

Outdoor Wood Choice – Fir wood is definitely a great wood for outdoor applications because it shrinks and expands due to moisture like any other wood, but goes back to its original form. With the addition of pet-safe and weatherproof finishes, it provided a long-lasting outdoor guinea pig housing solution.

Indoor Wood Choice – The thing to think about with indoor wooden guinea pig cages is that they don’t give a lovely wooden scent. Guinea pigs are sensitive animals with sensitive skin and feet so it’s good to have a well-ventilated cage that doesn’t give harsh smells. To avoid this problem completely, you should also think about using bedding that is scent-free and dust-free.

Choosing The Size Based On Guinea Pig Numbers – Guinea pigs are active animals so they need a lot of space to exercise both at night and during the day. One guinea pig should be housed in a cage that offers 7.5 square feet of space, 2 inside 10.5 square feet spaces, and 3 in at least 10.5 but it would be better to get a 13 square feet cage. These numbers won’t be presented so it’s best to grab an online square footage calculator and read it using the length and width of a cage.

To Sum Up

We can’t recommend one wooden guinea pig cage since we don’t know whether you want to have it for indoor use, outdoor use, both, or even how many guinea pigs you want to house inside. Read the buying guide and you should know more than enough to choose the best on your own. If you’d prefer to have your guinea pig housed outdoors or strictly indoors you can read the outdoor guinea pig cage article or the indoor guinea pig cage article next. For reviews of both and more, all in one place, read the guinea pig cages article.
