Q: I'm having a problem with my guinea pig
Since she was a baby, she's always had this one particular water bottle, to drink from. The tube was glass as well as the part that held the water. It recently broke. We went to the pet store to get another, but all they had was the plastic bottles with the stainless steel tube. We've tried those, she will not drink from them. We've tried bowl of water, but we're not sure, she's drinking from them either. What should we do?

If you have no luck finding the exact replacement, you can try to train your guinea pig to the knew bottle....fill it with diluted juice, and/or dip the tip into yogurt (or something else that your guinea pig) to help her learn that the metal is a good thing. you will have to do this several times a day,but eventually it will learn, no healthy animal will go starve or thirst it self.
