Forage for Guinea Pigs

FORAGE - SIMPLY AWESOME!

WHERE CAN WE GET IT?

Well, the first and most obvious place is the right here on our website! But you can also find forage in the wild, if you know what you are doing (!). Some of the plants you will come across are very dangerous and possibly deadly if eaten by your guinea pigs.

There are however, some easy winners; for example, apple tree leaves and branches are great (as long as they are clear of parasites and disease). Your pigs will eat the leaves and gnaw on the branches and get very excited about it!

Raspberry and strawberry leaves are also great and can be eaten in copious amounts!

Dandelion leaves (fresh and mould free) will have your piggies popcorning with joy, but go easy on the quantities - this one's a treat! Also make sure the leaves are washed first and not taken from an area where chemicals or pesticides have been used.

Another great way to get hold of forage is to simply buy it ready done. Most pet stores now appreciate how great it is for small animals and will stock a variety of forage types. Go check it out!

Top Tip:

For more tips on foraging from the wild, check out our paw-tners at Guinea Pig Australia who have a really nice section on forage and also a list of those dangerous plants to be avoided.
