Can Guinea Pigs Eat Blackberries?

We like berries. As our readers know, we liked blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. If it has the word "berry" in it, we'll probably gobble it up, so we were looking forward to trying blackberries. Blackberries can be fed to us 2-4 times per week in 25-gram portions. It's not uncommon to find aphids on blackberries, so make sure you inspect them before buying them, and wash them thoroughly before giving them to your piggies.

If the humans give you something delicious, it's always best to hide behind a large object so Lola won't find you!
Shh! She's looking for me. Don't tell her you saw me.
Like other berries, all three of us found blackberries to be delicious (Broccoli wouldn't let the humans near him with the camera- he took the blackberry and ran off). Blackberries are composed of many small parts, which meant there were lots of bite-sized pieces for us to snack on individually. This made them more fun to eat. We'll give blackberries 5/5 stars.


  1. We have a guinea pig named Miss Bonnet Furball. She eats so much!!! We have her by our Christmas tree.
