    Baby Guinea Pig Warning

    New baby guinea pigs can pass right through these grid openings. You MUST baby proof your cage if you have babies or young adult guinea pigs. Small guinea pigs (roughly under 6 months of age) should be protected from being exposed to the grids.

    How to Baby Proof

    • Either make your Coroplast walls temporarily higher (9 inches is recommended) (you can use cardboard or spare Coroplast), OR
    • Double up the grids, reducing the inner holes by 1/2.
    • Do NOT use internal grids as hayracks when you have babies or small young adults.

    The good news is that baby guinea pigs grow amazingly fast. Most will be beyond the need for baby proofing within a few months. You need to use your judgement and be conservative.

    What if they chew on the grids?

    • Breaking a tooth
      There is a very very remote possibility that a guinea pig might break a tooth by violently chewing on a grid. If this happens, it isn't life threatening. See a vet, but guinea pigs' teeth grow back amazingly quickly! This usually only happens if there are males living in a divided cage next to females. In this case, it's best go with our "Wall of Silence" cage divider.

    The Best!!!!!!

    I had bought my setup from here in 2013. Mooshy and now Bella Rose were/Are bar chewers. Bella is the worst. Paint easily came off and I sure wasn't at peace knowing they ate paint. Got these and replaced them. She's tried hard to get the paint off and no go! No little dents either! I noticed the bars on the new ones are a little thinner and the feel of the coating is different. So happy though Bella Rose isn't!

    From Guinea Pig Cages Store: Thank you for your review! Just to clarify: You're correct, the new grids are powder coated vs. vinyl coated.They're stronger because there's more metal than coating to keep the grid/bar thickness the same. Vinyl coating requires several thick coats and can peel. Powder coating is applied electrostatically and heat cured. So we had the metal made thicker in order to keep the same gauge of the grid. Glad the new grids are working nicely, and I hope Bella found something more appetizing to chew! :)

    My piggy Grady gets excited all the time. However, he really gets excited when he hears the hay bag. He knows he is about to get fresh hay. Grady popcorns about 5 to 10 times. Grady is 3 years old so I am so proud he can still popcorn at his age. Anyway he popcorns then runs to the grids and chews on them. It is cute :) but the grids were starting to look horrible. I decided to replace all the grids. Grady lives in 2x4 candc. So I replaced 12 grids. So very happy I did. It's been 3 days and my furry baby has lost interest in chewing on the grids because the grids discourage chewing piggies. Great product!!!!

    My little ones love to chew their cage grids, no matter what I did they found a way to get to them. They chewed right through the plastic and down to the metal on several grids. Then I tried these powder coated grids and wow! Several months in and no amount of chewing has put so much as a dent in any of the grids! Nothing! And they're non toxic so I don't have to find creative ways to keep them from chewing! In fact, only two of them bother anymore since they don't get anywhere with it. I love these grids! Definitely a must for anyone with piggies who enjoy to chew on everything they can get their little teeth on!

    Powder Coated Grids are unbelievable and "un-bitable"!

    After our guinea pigs got accustomed to their new home, they started gnawing on the original grids. We tried feeding them more, feeding them different food and even playing with them more, but they continued to gnaw at and chew on the grids. This left the inside metal exposed and the white covering was falling off. A quick email to Guinea Pig Cages and Sue had our solution. The new and improved Power Coated Grids! We received 3 new grids almost overnight and they installed easily. In fact, the "fit" feels even more snug as the grids are a bit thicker. It's been quite a few months since we installed the new grids and there are no more bite marks. Thanks to Sue and Guinea Pig cages for continually updating their product, not only for convenience, but also for the safety of our pets!

    No longer chews

    My Winston was a prolific bar biter. He would do it all night. I've tried bitter spray, vinegar, etc and he continued to do so, which worried me because he was able to leave teeth marks. I then switched his grids from the old ones to the new powder coated grids. He tried several times to chew at night, however he could not make a mark on these grids! He tried more, but has since given up as he cannot chew down to the metal. Because of these new grids, Winston no longer bar bites. I can now sleep at night (he is in room).





    Myself, Winston & his teeth thank you for these grids 😀
