My Guinea Pig likes to eat! A Good diet helps keep them healthy and happy.

What I feed my Guinea Pig?

Hey! If you have a guinea pig as a pet, it's super important to give them the right kind of food to keep them healthy and happy. Here are some things you can give them:

  1. Hay - This is like super important for their tummies and teeth. Make sure they have fresh hay every day.
  2. Pellets - This is special food made just for guinea pigs. Give them a small amount each day.
  3. Veggies - They love stuff like carrots, peppers, cucumbers, and greens. But go slow if you give them new veggies.
  4. Fruits - They also like fruits like apples, bananas, and strawberries. But again, go slow with new fruits.

And don't forget to give your guinea pig fresh water all the time. Change their water every day and wash their water bottle or bowl. Taking care of your guinea pig with the right food and water will make them a happy pet!

What can't my Guinea Pig eat?

Hey there! If you have a guinea pig, there are some foods that you shouldn't give them because it can make them really sick. So, here's what you should avoid:

  1. Chocolate - It's super yummy for us, but not for guinea pigs. It can make them sick.
  2. Coffee and tea - They might taste good to us, but they can make guinea pigs feel bad.
  3. Dairy - Guinea pigs can't digest dairy products like milk or cheese.
  4. Junk food - It's not good for guinea pigs and can cause tummy problems.
  5. Meat - Guinea pigs only eat plants, so no meat for them.

Just remember, it's better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your guinea pig's diet. If you're not sure if something is okay for them to eat, don't give it to them.
