Can Guinea Pigs Eat Spaghetti Squash?

The humans love Italian food. We hear them talk about how good lasagna, pizza, and spaghetti are. Unfortunately, these are all things that guinea pigs can't eat, so we'll never know. That's okay, though, because there is a guinea pig equivalent to one of these foods. We're not talking about that "pizza" treat, by the way, which was full of bad stuff that we shouldn't eat. We're talking about spaghetti squash, which can be shredded to look like spaghetti.

To feed us spaghetti squash, wash the outside, cut it in half, scoop out the seeds, throw them out, and then cut out bite-sized bits of the flesh for us. Don't feed us the skin. It should be fed to us raw. As a winter squash, spaghetti squash can be fed to us 2-4 times per week.

That's a spaghetti squash.
Forget shredding it into spaghetti strands! We're hungry NOW! Wheek wheek!
Spaghetti squash was pretty tasty at first, although our enthusiasm did start dying down towards the end. We'll give it 4/5 stars. (By the way, for another spaghetti-like food that we're allowed to eat, we recommend corn silk. Delicious!)


  1. My piggies wont eat the corn silk or husks. Why shouldn't they eat the squash skin?

  2. Need to know if they can eat spaghetti squash cooked they have raw yesterday but it's cooked today
