Here’s the food list!
GUINEA PIGS DO NOT OVER EAT – FEED A LOT AND FEED IT OFTEN
They love diversity so try not to feed the same thing over and over
MUST HAVE READILY AVAILABLE IN THE CAGE AT ALL TIMES
TIMOTHY HAY & TIMOTHY PELLETS Hay and pellets should be 75% of the diet
STAPLE VEGGIE SUGGESTIONS
CILANTRO and PARSLEY
ROMAINE LETTUCE / GREEN LETTUCE / RED LETTUCE
FRESH GRASS (make sure no fertilizer and chemicals are used on the grass – free food!)
VEGGIE SNACK SUGGESTIONS
BASIL (some love it others run away when they take one whiff of it)
CELERY (no need to remove the strings – rodent teeth chew through the tough strings easily)
BELL PEPPERS (no need to de-seed a pepper first, they eat the whole thing)
DANDELION LEAVES (sold in stores and also grows wild- free food!)
CHARD OR GREENS LIKE IT
SWEET TREAT SNACK SUGGESTIONS (all fruits are ok but in moderation)
ANY KIND OF BERRY
CORN (THE ACTUAL CORN AND THE HUSK ALSO) try to feed organic only
DO NOT FEED
BROCOLI and CABBAGE veggies as this can cause bloat
ICEBERG LETTUCE – too much water and zero nutrition
SPINACH- too high in much calcium
