A cage should be big enough for the pet to stand up in. It should be long enough for the pet to turn around in. The normal size for a guinea pig is a cage that is 2 feet by 2 feet and a foot tall.

What cage is best to use for guinea pigs?

Just get a big cage from a pet store that has little hiding places in it. Guinea pigs like to hide in small dark places. Rabbit cages would be okay to use too, but make sure you keep your guinea pig inside. Make sure that the bottom of the cage is smooth for the guinea pig. Wire at the bottom of the cage is too hard for it to walk on and painful. Also, get some shavings/bedding (little pieces of cut up wood or get it from a pet store) to line on the bottom of the cage that will make a comfy bed for your pet.
