What fresh foods can I feed my Guinea Pig?

Feeding your guinea pig fresh food can be a great way to add to their diet and also be a fun activity for the whole family. Guinea Pigs lack in the ability to produce

their own vitamin “C”, so a few added fresh foods can really help. These treats should always be cut up into small pieces and only given in small quantities. Example:

a slice of a pepper (no seeds), a slice of apple or a few sprigs of parsley. Guinea pigs diet should always include hay, pellets and fresh water too.

Here is a list of a few foods your guinea pigs may enjoy:

Bell peppers – the red ones are highest in vitamin C
Carrots –
Apples – just make sure they don’t have any seeds.
Romaine lettuce, Boston lettuce. NOT Iceberg
Broccoli (in moderation since it can be gassy and cause a gas pain)
Green beans
Dandelion Greens
Spinach (in moderation)
Cherry tomatoes (in moderation)
Parsley – either curly or flat.
