A BEHIND THE SCENES FACTORY TOUR - UK CERAMICS MANUFACTURING

Join us, if you will, on a factory tour (it’s one of Daddy Pig’s favourite things!) and allow us to introduce to you the wonderful process of manufacturing British ceramics. For us, this means our gorgeous range of fine bone china mugs and jugs and our durable earthenware pet bowls.

The factory we use for our ceramics is based in Stoke-on-Trent, right in the heart of The Potteries, an area of the UK synonymous with manufacturing the world’s finest ceramics since the early 18th Century. Jason heads up the whole operation and is supported by a wonderfully skilled team of crafts people, each with their own specialist skill and many with several decades of experience working in the ceramics industry. There’s also Lola, Jason’s adorable little pug who is of course, head of customer services and tea breaks!

A SQUEAKILY GREAT HOLIDAY ADVENTURE

Hello, Humphrey here!

Unfortunately, as Mummy and Daddy have been very busy setting up Everything Guinea Pig this year, we haven’t had opportunity to pack the car and head out exploring. However, all is not lost! I have scampered around and found out last years album to share with you. You’ll see that I had the most fabulous time and looking through the photos has brought back lots of special memories.

Ok here goes…

INTRODUCING OUR SNUGGLE TIME WATER PROOF LAP PROTECTORS

Our water proof lap protectors (affectionately known as piddle-pads here at Guinea Pig HQ) have been very popular in our online store so we though we'd share the story behind their creation and demonstrate just how good they are at preventing little accidents soaking through on to clothing and furniture.

 

We've all been there, you're enjoying snuggle time with your furry family, everyone's feeling relaxed (perhaps a little too relaxed) and suddenly you get that warm sensation.... slowly seeping through onto your lap. Little Piggy looks adoring into your eyes as if butter wouldn't melt and you're thinking not again!

VITAMIN C AND GUINEA PIGS - EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

A frequent topic of conversation amongst piggy parents is Vitamin C. How much do you give? What are the best foods? How much is too much?

To clarify exactly what you need to know and how this can be incorporated easily in to your daily guinea pig care routine, we've scoured the internet, undertaken all the leg work and pulled all of the important bits into this comprehensive guide for you to use as an easy reference.
