Pendleton Veterinary Clinic

Your furry little friend will spend the bulk of his time in his cage, so be sure to make it nice and comfortable. You’ll need to add a safe, suitable substrate, such as aspen. Your cute pet will also need a hidey-hole, dishes, and a water bottle. Just like any other pet, Guinea pigs need proper nutrition to stay healthy and happy. Your little buddy will need lots of fresh grass hay, such as Timothy hay. 

Fresh produce will round out your adorable pet’s menu. Ask your vet for specific nutritional recommendations. These little guys need to chew quite a bit, as they will develop painful dental issues if they don’t wear their teeth down. You can upcycle many wooden, wicker, or cardboard items into Guinea pig playthings. Your Guinea pig should be examined regularly by a vet, and kept current on wellness care. 

Call your vet immediately if you notice anything unusual. Just keep the little guy in a specific area where there are no sharp objects, wires or cords, toxic plants, or other potential hazards.

Guinea Pigs

Dunkin Hartley Guinea pigs are available through our facilities in the United Kingdom. The Dunkin Hartley Guinea pig is an albino Pirbright strain derived from the short haired English Guinea pig. It has contributed widely to immunological research, including delayed hypersensitivity and anaphylactic shock. Guinea pigs are also valuable for studies on Tuberculosis, Vitamin C deficiency, and pharmacology. The colony is maintained in a full barrier with an SPF status, and our Guinea pigs are free of Guinea pig Cytomegalovirus. 

Colony health testing is performed according to FELASA recommendations.

To make our Carnitas, the pork is seasoned with an aromatic spice blend, then braised and shredded by hand, resulting in meat that’s falls-apart-in-your-burrito tender. Our Responsibly Raised pork has a special place in our hearts: it was Chipotle founder Steve Ells’ quest to find better pork in the early days that sparked Chipotle’s journey to be on the constant lookout for the best ingredients we can find across the board. Guess you could say that without pork, we’d have no ingredients to write home about.

Polluting Pigs: Part III

Posted June 21, 2018North Carolina is the second largest pork producer in the U.S. and home to more than 2,500 pig CAFOs. 1 The estimated 9 million pigs living in the state produce copious amounts of waste – up to 10 times the amount of an average human2 – for which there is no easy, nor environmentally friendly, disposal solution. Whereas a small farm can use the waste produced by its animals as fertilizer, the massive amounts of waste produced on CAFOs becomes a toxic liability.
