Foods To Avoid
Like other animals, there are certain foods that guinea pigs should stay away from. They could be poisonous, too high in fat or sugar, cause gas, or be a choking hazard. You should also keep them away from any plants and flowers because many are considered toxic.
Foods your guinea pig should stay away from include: Chocolate, anything with caffeine, onions, garlic, mushrooms, iceberg lettuce, avocados, nuts, potatoes, seeds, corn kernels, peanut butter, rhubarb, cabbage, bok choy, dairy products, bread, and meat.
If you’re not really sure what to feed your guinea pig or what foods to avoid, talk to an exotic pets’ veterinarian.
