Can Guinea Pigs Swim?

I recently adopted a guinea pig. For some reason he does not like to do physical activity.
I wondered if guinea pigs could swim. I want him to do some physical activity.
So can they swim or not?

Yes, guinea pigs can swim! But they usually get pretty stressed out by doing it.
Please don't make your poor guinea pig swim. Just because they can doesn't mean they should. It's not good for them and if the water gets in their ears it could be fatal.

Guinea pigs can swim but you do not have to swim her. Take her out and let her roam. If she is severely over weight, the more floor time she has out on the floor the better.

they can but i agree with Natalie, they can but it should be there choice. Like put them near a small tub or something with access in and out of it and see what your guinea pig wants. Sometimes they CAN and other they DON'T so please don't force your guinea pig to.....
