Freedom from hunger and thirst

All guinea pigs must have access to clean water and a well-balanced, nutritious diet. Freedom from hunger and thirst provides a guinea pig’s most basic needs by allowing that guinea pig to remain in good health and full of energy.

Did you know that there is a special law protecting animals?

This law is called the Animal Welfare Act. The Animal Welfare Act says that your animal has five groups of welfare needs. These are five groups of things that animals need to be healthy and happy. These five welfare needs are called the Five Freedoms.

Under the Animal Welfare Act all animal guardians (owners) need to provide these five groups of things for their animals. One of these Freedoms is: Freedom from Hunger and Thirst. In this section you will learn about this freedom and how you can make sure your guinea pigs are always free from hunger and thirst.
