Patagonian Cavy are different from other rodents in that they pair for life. You can find them foraging in groups when they are raising their young. Sometimes you will see them in groups up to 35. A female will dig a large burrow or use an already dug burrow for the offspring. Often multiple females will use the same den. A cavy will breed 2-3 times a year and have 1-3 offspring. The gestation period is 70-80 days. When born, the offspring will fully furred, eyes open and will walk shortly after birth.

Patagonian Cavy Diet

In captivity you can feed patagonian cavies a commercially produced rodent or primate diets. This can be supplemented with fruits, vegetables and grasses. They can be litter box trained. Cavies will chose a place close to their food source to relieve themselves. They are not aggressive and get along well with people. So well that a male cavy will spray a human. Their urine does not have a high ammonia smell like some rodents have. The cavy is the fourth largest rodent and will chew a lot. Rodents have teeth that continue to grow and they need to chew to naturally wear the teeth down. You will need to keep an eye on them so that they won’t chew your furniture or electric cords and get injured.

Housing a Patagonian Cavy

You will need a solid wire cage that can not be chewed and it should be a 10' x 10' size to give them room to move around and a place for a shelter for them to get out of the elements. Also the bottom should be dug down a few feet and then lined in heavy gage wire that will not rust when buried or even better would be to use concrete for the foundation liner. Then fill it in and it give an area for the cavy to dig a burrow. If you live in a colder climate, you will need to provide a heat pad and in extreme cold temperatures you may have to bring the cavys indoors.

Patagonian Cavies in Captivity

These are common medical problems that a cavy can experience; malocclusion of cheek teeth, gastrointestinal parasites, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and traumatic leg fractures due to their long thin legs.
