Can guinea pigs eat banana?

Today we will be reviewing banana. We guinea pigs can eat bananas but because bananas contain a high amount of sugar, they should only be fed to us in small amounts. A thin slice per pig is a good rule of thumb. Note that in the video below, we are shown eating half a banana, but our human took it away from us before we could finish it because of the sugar concern (not cool).

We really like bananas so we'll give it 4/5 stars. If we had it our way, we'd eat all the banana we could stomach, even if it gave us a stomach ache afterwards.

The human was only going to let us nibble on the banana, but I let her know who's boss.
Ahahaha! Ours now!

  6. Hi Milanda,

    Only give them a tiny bit, since bananas are very high in sugar. Think of it as a guinea pig dessert!

  8. I let my guinea pigs eat all they want. I find they love the peelings more than the fruit itself. Yes they are fat but they have no health issues.

    1. You can give him some, but make sure it's only a tiny amount, and only very occasionally. Don't just hold it like our humans did; that's too much temptation. Cut off a tiny slice and then give it to him.

    1. Just make you sure only feed banana in very small amounts, and only 1-2 times per month!
