Can Guinea Pigs Eat Celery?


When it comes to feeding your guinea pig, it can be difficult to know what is okay to feed and what is not okay to feed, especially when we’re talking about fruits and vegetables.  And one of the more common questions people have is can guinea pigs eat celery.


While it is true that guinea pigs can successfully eat celery, there are a couple of things to think about if you’re going to feed celery.  One is that celery has those long strings, which can unintentionally cause some problems for a guinea pigs digesting.  Some pet owners get around this by cutting the celery stalk into small pieces.


Additionally, it is always important to understand that celery or any other vegetable for that matter should never make up the core of your guinea pigs diet, no matter how much your piggy may like it.  If you do feed celery, you should be feeding it in moderation, and it should looked at as a  supplement to the core of their diet.  The core of a guinea pigs diet should be made up of high quality timothy hay, vitamin c foritified guinea pig pellets, as well as fresh clean water.  A sensible amount of fresh vegetables and the occasional slice of fruit as a treat can round out the diet nicely, hay, water, and the pellets is at the core of their daily diet.


We hope this post about can guinea pigs eat celery has been helpful.  As always, if you have questions about your guinea pigs health and diet the best idea is to talk to a guinea pig savvy veterinarian.
