Der international renommierte Verhaltensforscher Dr. Immanuel Birmelin erklärt im GU Tierratgeber Meerschweinchen, was die possierlichen Nager brauchen, um sich rundum wohlzufühlen. Ob Käfigausstattung, Ernährung, Pflege, Gesundheitsvorsorge oder Beschäftigung - der Autor erklärt anschaulich, was für ein artgerechtes Meerschweinchen-Leben unverzichtbar ist. Dazu gibt es zahlreiche Tipps, wie man die Tiere in einem Freilaufgehege in der Wohnung, auf dem Balkon oder im Garten in Bewegung hält und für reichlich Abwechslung im Meerschweinchen-Alltag sorgt. Als Extra gibt’s die GU Heimtier Plus-App. Damit wird der Tierratgeber interaktiv und hält weitere interessante Zusatzinfos und Bilder bereit.

The epic true story of one man, a dog, and how they found each other As seen on an ESPN SC Featured documentary When you're racing 435 miles through the jungles and mountains of South America, the last thing you need is a stray dog tagging along. But that's exactly what happened to Mikael Lindnord, captain of a Swedish adventure racing team, when he threw a scruffy but dignified mongrel a meatball one afternoon. When the team left the next day, the dog followed. Try as they might, they couldn't lose him—and soon Mikael realized that he didn't want to. Crossing rivers, battling illness and injury, and struggling through some of the toughest terrain on the planet, the team and the dog walked together toward the finish line, where Mikael decided he would save the dog, now named Arthur, and bring him back to his family in Sweden, whatever it took. In compelling prose, illustrated with candid photographs, Arthur provides a testament to the amazing bond between dogs and people.
