it works great with guinea pigs, as long as you think they'll be able to reach the crock. i had to put mine on the second level of my cage for them to reach it.

answer 2
Assuming the cage is made of open wire design just like the dog cages, the bowl is locked onto the mount which in turn is mounted on the cage with a clamp which is locked down with a thumb turning nut. Therefore, the guinea pigs should not be able to tip the bowl over.

it should work well on guinea pigs as long as you screw it on low enough to the ground so iyour guinea pig can reach it.

The only thing I would take into consideration is how high the bowl sits. I use these for my ferrets (so you can have a good size comparison), but mine are all big boys. If I had smaller ferrets they might not be able to reach it. You have about 4-5 inches from the floor to the top of the dish, depending on what size you get.

Question

I keep my GP in a large tub with bedding. Could I drill a hole in the side to hook this bowl up? It would make watering much easier I believe.

This probably will not work too well because there are "teeth" on the two mounting plates to secure the mounting brackets on the cage. A hole will allow the mounting screw to go through but the "teeth" will not be able to align in order to secure the mounting brackets on a solid surface.

I don't see why you couldn't, my only thought would be if the bowl is too tall for your piggies. I use these for my ferrets, but they are all big boys, if I had smaller ferrets I don't think they could reach into the bowls. If you put it as low as it can go, you will have roughly 4-5 inches from the floor to the top of the bowl. They work very well for stopping spills though :)
