Why Do Guinea Pigs Need Gnawing Material?

Guinea pigs are rodents by nature, and this need to chew is not just a preference, but a necessity. The constant growth of their incisors requires regular gnawing to ensure that the teeth do not grow too long or crooked. Rodent material plays an essential role in this, and at DRD Knaagdierwinkel® we understand this importance.

Guinea pigs have a natural need to gnaw. This is because guinea pigs are rodents and have continuously growing incisors. It is therefore really necessary for the guinea pig that they can gnaw on something to wear down their teeth. If guinea pigs have too little opportunity to wear down their teeth, the teeth may become too long or grow crooked, with all the consequences that entails.

Gnawing wood is used by rodents to wear down their teeth. Because rodents' teeth are always growing, they need to be gnawed regularly so that they do not grow too long and crooked.

How fast do rodents and rabbits grow teeth?

Mice : About 0.3 millimeters per day
Hamsters : About 0.3 millimeters per day
Gerbils : About 0.4 millimeters per day
Rats : About 0.5 millimeters per day
Guinea pigs : About 2 to 3 millimeters per week

Variety of Gnawing Wood: Wear and Fun in One

Gnawing wood is a favorite choice for guinea pigs to wear down their teeth naturally. Our range offers a variety of gnawing wood options so that every guinea pig can find its perfect match. From tunnels to blocks, our gnawing material combines functionality with fun, so your guinea pigs not only wear their teeth but also enjoy their gnawing moments.

Do guinea pigs like gnawing wood?

Some guinea pigs gnaw wood very actively and others not at all. On the one hand it is a matter of taste, but on the other hand it is a matter of need. If a guinea pig does not need to gnaw because its teeth are kept in good length through food, hay or other nibbles, it will gnaw less on wood. It is good to always provide natural gnawing wood so that the animals can always gnaw when they need to gnaw.

Whether your guinea pig is an avid nibbler or prefers other nibbles, our gnawing material offers a natural and healthy option. Some guinea pigs actively gnaw on wood, while others do so less. It can depend on taste and need. If your guinea pig already gets enough wear and tear through food, hay or other treats, the need for gnawing wood can decrease. However, it is always advisable to offer natural gnawing wood, so that your guinea pigs always have a choice when the need to gnaw arises.
