Guinea Pig Food• Dry Mix- About 30g of a food formulated for guinea pigs (such as Wagg Guinea Pig Crunch, Allen and Page Guinea Pig food) daily.
• Fresh Fruit and Vegetables- Guinea Pigs don’t make their own vitamin C so it must be provided for them. Vitamin C supplements are usually not needed as they can get their fill from feeding them a good variety of fresh stuff. Carrot, Cucumber, Celery, Spring Greens, Tomatoes, bell peppers and Romaine Lettuce are safe to feed daily. Other things like Carrot tops, Parsley, Parsnip, Dandelions, Corn on the Cob, and Curly Kale can be fed once or twice a week. Fruits like banana (with skin), apple, grapes, strawberries and melon make nice treats too.
• Hay- You can’t feed a guinea pig too much hay! Its great stuff and helps keep their teeth warm down and their digestive system in good order. Feed them meadow (grass hay) or timothy hay in unlimited amounts. Alfalfa hay should not be fed except to pregnant guinea pigs.
• Water- Guinea pigs need constant access to fresh water. A drip feed bottle is the best way to provide this. Change the water daily and clean the bottle with a bottle brush regularly to prevent the growth of algae and fungi.
