Facts about Mongo

  • Species: Guinea Pig
  • Color: Brown Or Chocolate
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Mongo is a sweet little boy who is a little scared at first when meeting new people, but loosens up after a little bit. He loves his carrots and tomatoes and seems to enjoy gentle rubs behind his ears. He will need someone patient to help socialize him.

Mongo does have a slight medical condition but it is easy to care for and doesn't require any medication at this time. He has what is referred to as cauliflower willy. He will need his genitals wiped down once or twice a day with a gentle baby wipe to help keep his penis cleaned and keep him from getting a urinary tract infection. It is very simple to do. Because of this we would recommend keeping him on fleece or paper bedding.

RCHS guinea pigs live in loving foster homes where they are socialized, given sufficient exercise outside of their cage, and fed a diet of grass hay, Timothy pellets, and fresh vegetables daily to maintain a healthy weight. Guinea pigs do require a vet trained in exotic animal medicine and have special housing and dietary needs. We encourage you to please research guinea pigs thoroughly before adopting.
