That has got to be one of the most funniest lies I've ever heard.
It is very untrue. They LIVE in water, so how would they drown? xD

You also shouldn't be using spring water for them. It has unnecessary minerals that would not do them any good and may even harm them. The best water for them is straight from the tap added with the correct amount of water conditioner.
Maybe you could make a thread to have us give you the correct information. You were fed alot of lies. And I'm quite certain the food you were told to be of "very high-quality" is not even near medium quality.
Pet stores tell their customers alot of lies just to sell products. When I got my guinea pig I was told such lies. I was told those little yogurt treats were great for him. Very healthy n such. Turns out it is full of dairy and sugar that my guinea pig does NOT need. I was also told this type of food that had seeds, colored stuff and stuff I'm not even sure what really it is was supposed to be VERY healthy for my guinea pig. Wrong again. My guinea pig can choke on the seeds. Not to mention he doesn't know to open them in order to eat them. There are other reasons and lies I was told. But you get the gest.
