Feeding Your Guinea Pig
Your guinea pig needs a variety of foods to keep healthy and happy. Start with a high-quality guinea pig pellet. Purchase these pellets from a quality pet supply store to ensure that they are fresh. Give your pig fresh leafy greens such as romaine lettuce, spinach or kale. Add some other crunchy vegetables such as carrots or squash for added nutrition. And small pieces of fruit such as strawberries or apple slices make a great, nutritious treat. Your guinea pig’s body cannot manufacture vitamin C so ensure some of the fruits and vegetables are high in this vitamin. Your guinea pig will also need plenty of timothy hay. This hay helps his digestive system to work properly and all that nibbling helps keep his teeth trim. Make sure your pig has access to fresh, clean water at all times.
