Keeping small animals such as rabbits and Guinea pigs at the correct temperature is very important, cold weather can be deadly at this time of the year. We naturally go outdoors less in winter, but you must ensure you check your pets regularly.
Keeping small animals in pairs is also a recommendation as they can snuggle up together to keep warm. However here are a few tips we recommend:
- Add a cardboard box to your hutch with a hole and fill it with dry hay.
- Add a hot water bottle to the hutch and wrap in a soft blanket – try our cosy pod?
- Add covers to your hutch to protect your pets from the wind and rain and keep the hay dry.
- PS make sure we get plenty of cuddles
