The one thing not necessary or NOT recommendable will be a exercise wheel just like the hamster wheels. These toys will harm your cavy's spine, due to that there spine is not flexible enough to perform these types of exercise. If you already bought it I will recommend to give it to someone who owns rats, mice, hamster or any other pet that could use them with no problems. If your cavy uses this type of wheel he/she can damage her spine, ankles, legs and these conditions will be very painful and unnecessary to go through. I would recommend these wheels to other pets NOT guinea pigs.

A treadmill or an exercise bike is good for them though , but dont let them go jogging on their own in case they cant find their way back home

I wish pet stores would put notices on items that aren't good for cavies, like Cedar bedding, exercise wheels, etc. I know they want to make money, but they have enough things to sell without selling dangerous things.

If you get into exercise equipment, you have to get them TVs, exercise clothes, Piggyade, and all those other things. It can get expensive, lol.

lol this country is all abouth money, pet stores, food stores they all have their little secretes and of course they will not say, this causes cancer, this can do this and that. Therefore, I always check everything before feeding it to my piggies (*tip* always check product ingredients)

That's why I don't think I could work in a pet store. I'd get fired for telling people not to buy certain things for their piggies, lol.

I also wish pet stores carried the grids and coroplast for C&C cages. They could make a fortune, but they have contracts with certain companies, and they only sell those products.

Well, I guess they would fired me soon, because as long as I can help everyone to keep their piggies healthy I will. I applied for petsmart, I noticed they are not selling guinea pigs, I was checking the animals they have selling and it's been the second time where I don't see piggies their.

Petsmart usually does sell guinea pigs. There must be a shortage.

I know they do. I always see them in there, but it has been 2 times in several weeks that I don't see any. I hope they stop selling them, that won't happen but we can try

How can we try? What can we do? Should we write letters?

It will be a great idea, you have no idea in what bad conditions they keep them it is very sad. They keep then in aquariums and sometimes they put 3 piggies or more in just that little space, its very sad.
