What Can Guinea Pigs Eat?

Loyal readers may have noticed something new on the right side of their screens: a list of foods that guinea pigs can eat. We hope this will make it easier to find our food reviews. In the future, we hope to develop this list into a table that will include columns for nutritional information, alternative names for foods, our numeric ratings, and so on.

Does your human need help figuring out what to put on your blue plate?
Do you find this list helpful? Are there features you would like to see added? If so, leave us a comment and let us know what you think!

  3. i really need your advice, i buy a guinea pig and he's not eating the food i prepared? and how many times must they eat in one day? please reply

    1. Hi Nicole. What food are you feeding your guinea pig? As for your other question, guinea pigs should have about a cup of vegetables per day (usually broken up into two meals), about 1/8 a cup of pellets (just once), and unlimited access to timothy hay (or another grass hay) and water. We usually also receive a small vitamin C supplement in a syringe, as it's very important that we get enough vitamin C.
