When we think of a guinea pigs diet without the knowledge that we now have so widely, the first thing you tend to think of are carrots and lettuces which is the stereotypical food for guinea pigs and rabbits. Though surprisingly, carrots aren’t actually very good for rabbits because it is high in sugar. So can guinea pigs eat carrots?
Actually carrots are also a staple because they have a fantastic amount of vitamin c and guinea pigs can eat the leaves, tops and all! As a bonus they are also very good for keeping the teeth worn down. Feed one carrot per day!
