Shop Guinea Pig Food

Guinea pigs are strict herbivores, which means they require a plant-based only diet in order to stay happy and healthy. Fresh hay and fresh leafy vegetables should be the main bulk of their diet. They also spend a lot of time foraging so it is essential you provide constant access to fresh hay at all times.

What to Feed your Guinea Pig

  • 90% of their diet should be hay. A guinea pig’s teeth are continually growing, and chewing on hay helps ear them down as well as maintaining good dental health. A high-quality meadow hay like Timothy hay is a good choice.
  • 5% should be balanced guinea pig pellet. Choose pellets fortified with Vitamin C as guinea pigs are unable to formulate Vitamin C themselves.
  • 5% should consist of a variety of vegetables and leafy greens. Suitable foods to feed your guinea pig are broccoli, parsley, kale, cauliflower, red pepper, green pepper, and cooked brussels sprouts.
  • Fruits and treats can be offered rarely, such as guava, strawberry, kiwi, and papaya.
