Question by  roxy3555 (51)

What should I feed a guinea pig?

A healthy guinea pig diet includes a selection of timothy pellets, timothy hay and a variety of fresh, raw vegetables like cauliflower, corn on the cob, fresh cucumber, lettuce and melons. Your local pet supply store is the best location to find a quality guinea pig food that is healthy.

- unlimited grass hay (i.e. timothy) - 1/8 cup timothy-based pellets per day (Oxbow is the only one that provides proper nutrients. - 1 cup fresh vegetables per day (e.g.leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce, endive, bell peppers, tomatoes, parsley, kale, cucumber, apples, blueberries, carrots, orange) Oxbow pellets/hay can be ordered online or found at good pet food stores)
