Hay is the most important thing. The only thing guinea pigs really care about is HAY.
Give them FRESH HAY Every day!
Guinea pigs mostly eat hay, supplemented by pellets, vegetables, and fruit.
Every other day, add some salad to their meal with collard greens, zucchini, or shredded carrots. Check the calcium levels of the food you offer. High Vitamin C is great, High Calcium is not great.
Check the calcium levels of the food you offer. High Vitamin C is great, High Calcium is not great for your cavy.
Have you ever tried kale? It's rich in Calcium and should be only fed less than Romain and green leaf lettuce.
Once a week, treat them to a fruity snack (papaya, banana, or mango)
Twice a week, let them nibble on raisins and alfalfa.
A healthy guinea pig diet is about 20% vegetables and 5% fruit.
Guinea pigs cannot store or manufacture their own vitamin C.
Help them out with a daily supplement, as a treat.
