Vitamins for Guinea Pigs

How to provide your guinea pigs with extra vitamin C, if they need it.

There are various options when providing a vitamin C supplement, but here’s what we’ve found works best.

- A vitamin C ‘treat’ such as Oxbow’s Natural Science Vitamin C Supplement. In our experience this is generally a very palatable treat that piggies are only too happy to munch on. It can be hand-fed during ‘cuddle time’ – bonus! (And then you know they are actually eating it too!)

- If you are support feeding a sick guinea pig with an additional recovery food and/or probiotic, many of these have good levels of vitamin C added. Check the product’s labelling for information.

There are options available to add vitamin C to water bottles, however, it’s not something we’d recommend. Adding vitamin C to the water supply can change the taste of the water and may put some guinea pigs off drinking it all together. Vitamin C also degrades rapidly in water and you cannot tell how much they are getting, as different guinea pigs will drink different amounts of water.
