Most guinea pigs are not particularly fussy when it comes to food. Many will likely gobble up anything you put into their bowl that falls into an herbivore’s diet. It’s up to you as a pet parent to choose the right food for your pet to give them a well-balanced guinea pig diet.
This diet should mainly include guinea pig pellets as well as fresh hay. The best guinea pig pellets should consist of all the nutrition your pet needs. Hay should be dry, sweet and not show any mold or rot. You can find hay in our section for hamster and gerbil food and hay.
If you’d like, you can also add a small portion of fresh veggies to your guinea pig’s diet. They will often enjoy many kinds of vegetables. And if you want to give your pet a treat, try a small amount of fruit. You can also find specially formulated guinea pig snack mixes and treats at Petco. Consider fruits and treats as a dessert that should be given sparingly
