Something that concerns me is the vitamin c drops that you add to the water bottle. I think that the drops are dangerous, because of the possible build up of bacteria and other germs. It also effects the taste of the water. I use Oxbow vitamin C chewables instead.
I never ever used those drops because I was told they were not as beneficial as they say and also most guinea pigs won't drink the water if it tastes funny. When I had guinea pigs,I used to give them the chewable Vitamin C. They loved those.

I was only mentioning my concerns about the vitamin c drops, because I didn't know whether or not the person asking for advice had ever owned a guinea pig. Sometimes stores push products that aren't necessarily the best or the safest. My guinea pig loves the vitamin c chewables and has never refused to eat one. I want to be sure that only one vitamin is given per day, because that's what the directions say, and you don't want your guinea pig to be overdosed.

I was the OP of this topic and in the past I had used them in the water supply but then after a topic here, I stopped doing that.
