Guinea pigs should never eat Oreos because they are too sweet.
Give your guinea pig some tasty greens! Provide three vegetable portions daily.
Guinea pigs are herbivores and need a balanced diet of hay, pellets, fresh veggies, and fruits. Their food should provide fiber, protein, minerals, and vitamins. Guinea pigs can eat kiwis, strawberries, oranges, apples, bananas, broccoli, cabbage, endive, carrot tops, Brussels sprouts, kale, silver beet, and mint.
Avoid giving guinea pigs toxic fruits, meat, dairy, rabbit pellets, nuts, seeds, dried fruits, multivitamins, high-starch foods like peas, beans, corn, cakes, cereal, grains, bread, mushrooms, rhubarb, avocados, and peanut butter. Cherries, plums, and pears contain sugar and cyanide, causing diarrhea. Mango, papaya, and pomegranate can cause severe dyspepsia and colics. Rhubarb contains toxic oxalic acid.
I feed my Guinea pigs fresh fruits, veggies, and hay. I give them kiwis, strawberries, oranges, apples, bananas, broccoli, cabbage, endive, carrot tops, Brussels sprouts, kale, silver beet, and mint. Since fruits are sugary, I limit their portions. I gently introduce new fruits and veggies to avoid diarrhea. I limit fruit and veggie intake if my guinea pigs have loose stool. I never give them toxic fruits, meat, dairy, nuts, seeds, dried fruits, multivitamins, high-starch meals, mushrooms, rhubarb, avocados, or peanut butter.
Oreos are too sweet for guinea pigs.
Guinea pigs make cute pets. Pet shops nationwide sell them, which resemble hamsters or bunnies.
Guinea pig diet is complex. For optimum health and growth, start with timothy hay in their diet.
They should also get carrots, apples, red or green peppers, herbs, iceberg lettuce, mushrooms, spinach, zucchini, winter squash, and asparagus.
Guinea pigs need vitamin C, which these diets provide.
Avoid feeding guinea pigs nuts. Many pet shop “treats” are birdseed or hamster food, which can choke small pets.
Oreos are too high in calcium for guinea pigs.
Oreos are tasty but can harm your guinea pig without low-calcium foods. Your pet should eat several portions of high-calcium vegetables and a large piece of fruit daily.
However, young and pregnant/nursing guinea pigs need more calcium than adults. Oxbow’s baby guinea pig morsels may help your pig get enough.
Spinach is another calcium-rich meal with oxalates. Guinea pigs should not ingest more than 50mg of oxalates per day.
Oreos are too high in protein for guinea pigs.
Oreos are tasty but bad for guinea pigs. Their high protein and fat content is unhealthy.
Guinea pigs need healthy food. Timothy hay, high-quality grains, and fresh leafy greens should be fed daily.
Guinea pig digestion must be maintained. Bacterial infections, poor diet, and dental issues can cause diarrhea.
Diarrhea in guinea pigs requires immediate vet attention. Vitamin C shortage is often the cause. They can fill nutritional gaps by eating a high-quality pellet with vitamins and vegetables containing this essential component.
