Can Guinea Pigs Eat Celery

Celery is a very stringy, watery vegetable that is great in salads and cooking both raw and cooked! It is a marshland plant with stalks and leaves with many great health benefits for people.

So can guinea pigs eat celery?

Yes!

However, because celery is high in water it can cause bloating if consumed in large amounts so be careful and feed two to four times a week in small amounts. Also, celery is very stringy and could be a choking hazard so make sure to cut up into small slices. They can have both the leaves and the stalk.

    I find this info interesting. I am more into horses and dogs but people often wonder what they can and can’t have as well. I certainly have friends who have guinea pigs and will be sure to share your site with them as there is so much useful information here for them!

    Hi,

    My little cousin loves animals, she always has some kind of pet; rabbits, tortoises, cats and at one point she had 5 chicks and guess what her new craze is about? Yep she now wants a guinea pig. Any recommendation I could share with her?

      Hi!
      Awww I can completely relate to your cousin! It doesn’t matter what it is, I want it too! I recommend that she does lots of research about diet, housing and all the things required for keeping a guinea pig. It will help quench that desire a little 😉 Tell her to browse this website and read as much as she can before getting some. She should also know that it is important to get two, not one as they get lonely by themselves.
