Can guinea pigs eat nuts?


Almonds are a great snack for us humans…but can guinea pigs eat nuts?


The truth is, you really shouldn’t feed your guinea pig nuts.  Nuts really do not provide any valuable nutrition to your guinea pigs, and actually they could harm your guinea pig especially if you fed them a lot of them.  Being high in fats, nuts are something guinea pigs don’t need.  Instead of nuts, you should feed your guinea pig high quality timothy hay, fresh and clean water, and vitamin c fortified guinea pig pellets.  Do these things right and you’ll be on your way to happy and healthy guinea pig.


So, can guinea pigs eat nuts?  No…guinea pigs should not be fed nuts.

Till next time…love those piggies….
