Can guinea pigs eat kale?


If you’re a guinea pig owner, its likely you’ve had questions about you could and could not feed to your guinea pig at one time or another.   In this post we attempt to answer the question “Can guinea pigs eat kale”.


While guinea pigs can eat kale, there are a few things to keep in mind.  One is that kale is high in calcium, so if you are going to feed kale to your guinea pig, just be sure to do so in moderation.


Additionally, make sure to note that although guinea pigs can eat kale, it should never be a a substitute for the core of their diet.  always remember that the core of a guinea pigs diet should be made up of high quality timothy hay, fresh clean water, as well as guinea pig fortified pellets.  Vegetables can be fed in moderation, and many guinea pig owners also give a small piece of fruit as a treat occasionally.
