Can Guinea Pigs Eat Cranberries?

Today, we're going to review cranberries. I know cranberries are Thanksgiving food, so maybe this post is a little early. From our perspective, though, it's never too early to try a new food! Or too late, for that matter. When we saw these little round red things, we were expecting something nice and sweet; everyone knows our theory about red foods. But instead of something sweet, we tasted an explosion of intense flavor when we bit into these things!

Red food! Me first!
Whoah! That's intense! It's almost too intense... but not quite.
Lola just ate some cranberries, and now she's using hay as a palate cleanser.
Typically, when we get a food we like, we just eat it continuously until it's gone. It's very rare for us to stop for a hay break in the middle of trying a new food, but most foods aren't as intense as cranberries are.

Cranberries can be fed to us 2-4 times per week. Just like with humans, they can also help with urinary tract infections. They can also make your little piggy mouth feel like it's gone to some bittersweet dimension. They make you want to scream, yet you're still having fun; it's probably similar to what you humans feel when you ride roller coasters. We'll give cranberries 4/5 stars.

    1. I think the humans just bought the cranberries at the grocery store. You might not be able to find them until the fall, however.

    2. You may want to avoid craisins since they have added sugar.
      A fresh cranberry is far better
