Guinea Pig Nutrition

One of the most important things for a guinea pig’s diet is vitamin C. Like humans, they can’t manufacture this themselves and so they need to eat enough of this every day in order to stave off infection and remain fit and healthy.

As well as vitamin C, there a variety of other nutrients guinea pigs need to survive. In order to adequately provide for your guinea pig we suggest offering less of the salad-like foods such as lettuce, cucumber and peppers, and focus instead on foods such as carrot and broccoli.
