Feeding Your Guinea Pig
Your guinea pig needs a variety of foods to stay healthy and happy. Give him high-quality guinea pig pellets. Get these pellets from a reputable pet supply store with high turnover so you know they are fresh. He will need fresh, leafy greens with high nutrition value such as romaine lettuce, kale or spinach. And give your guinea pig other crunchy vegetables such as carrots or squash for added nutrition. Small pieces of fruit such as strawberries or apple slices are a nice occasional treat. Your guinea pig’s body can’t synthesize vitamin C so ensure that some of these fruits and vegetables are high in this essential vitamin. Your guinea pig will also need lots of timothy hay to help his digestive system work properly. And nibbling on hay helps keep his teeth trim. Check that your guinea pig has access to fresh, clean water at all times. For more information, contact your veterinarians Michigan City, IN.
