Feeding Your Guinea Pig
Your guinea pig needs a variety of foods to keep him healthy and happy. Start with a high-quality guinea pig pellet purchased from a reputable pet food supplier with high turnover so you know they are fresh. Add fresh leafy green vegetables with a high nutrition value such romaine lettuce, kale or spinach. Other crunchy vegetables such as carrots and squash provide additional nutrition. Small pieces of fruit such as strawberries or apple slices make a good occasional treat. Your guinea pig’s body can’t manufacture vitamin C so ensure some of the fruits and vegetables you give him are high in this essential vitamin. He will also need lots and lots of timothy hay. This hay help keep your pig’s digestive system working smoothly and all that nibbling helps keep his teeth trim. Ensure your guinea pig has access to fresh clean water at all times.
