Basil is a type of herb which is used in adding flavor to cooking. I came across a packet of seeds the other day and wondered can guinea pigs eat basil?
Yes they can!
Lots of herbs can be very beneficial to a guinea pigs diet when fed as a treat. Basil in particular has quite high phosphorus and calcium levels so it must only be fed once or twice a week in moderation.
If you would like to know if any particular food is safe for guinea pigs, please leave me a comment and I will write a post about that food!
