What vegetables and fruit can a guinea pig eat?
VEGETABLES & FRUIT - PIGGY HEAVEN - BUT APPLY PORTION CONTROL!
To supplement a guinea pigs diet and provide them with important vitamins and minerals, it is great to feed your piggies vegetables and fruit. Like the human diet, some foods are better for them than others and it's important to know which foods a piggy can enjoy and how much they can have of each daily.
As a general rule, guinea pigs can have one cup full of vegetables a day. Because of its sugar content, fruit is generally regarded as a treat and should be restricted to only one or two servings a week.
The HayPigs!® Food Craving Tamer - Food Bowl has been specially designed to help portion control. So if you have two guinea pigs, one full bowl a day is sufficient.
When preparing vegetables and fruit for your guinea pigs do as you would if you were eating them yourselves. Pick only fresh produce and wash with cold water, removing any pips, seeds or cores.
Below is a guide to help you select which vegetables and fruit to feed your pigs. When making a guinea pig meal, it's great to mix it up and provide them with variety. This is not only good for their diet, but it will also keep them excited about meal time (if indeed that is ever needed!!)
IMPORTANT WARNING: Not all vegetables and fruit are good for your piggies. For a list of those you should avoid, please scroll to the bottom of this page.
MAKE FOOD TIME FUN!
For a change, why not try using our HayPigs!® Piggy Weightlifter one dinner time instead of a bowl? Not only does this limit the amount of food and the speed at which the piggies can eat it, but it also provides them with a feeding challenge which is great stimulation for them.
