Continuing my posts about taking care of guinea pigs, I wanted to bring up the issue of what NOT to feed guinea pigs. Mostly, answer the question of what foods are poisonous to guinea pig?.
It is very important to avoid some foods with guinea pigs. After caring for ours, I found that there are many sites out there that says in one hand, this food is poison for guinea pigs, then on the other hand another site says that the food is ok, and won’t kill your guinea pigs. Well, I’ve decide to compile a list of foods to avoid giving your guinea pig:
- Apple – Seeds are poison!
- Asparagus – gives the guinea pigs bad gas
- Bananas and beets – causes constipation
- Cabbage – bad gas
- Celery – Chocking hazard for guinea pigs!
So, this lists of course is an abbreviated list, so I suggest doing more research on the topic and also check out HappyCavy.com’s list of what can guinea pigs eat.
