Is there a guinea pig food list?

I would like a list of foods that guinea pigs can and can’t eat so I know everything. Is there a list someone can link me to or if someone knows already, give me a list of their own?

I got based off of the safe food list but if you want an entire list, here is one: http://happycavy.com/what-can-guinea-pigs-eat/


There is a lot but it grades it for you with food that is good for daily feeding, treats, rare occasions, and never feeds.

It comes down to more or less what your piggy is willing to eat. So long as you limit the high sugar fruits and avoid the toxic vegetables, just try different things and see what they enjoy the most.

@alysa.bartoletti That is a really useful list. I will bookmark it and e-mail it to my sister. She got her self two guinea pigs a few months back. She is still trying to see which diet is best for them.

Just find 5 or 6 different vegetables your piggy will like and then a couple fruits and rotate them every other days. It is easier for you and your pet if you stick to a schedule and know exactly what to buy each time.

This is the best list I found online. It gives you a general idea of what foods to mix with what for high C content as well as taste.

@vallie.brown That is a good list! I never would have thought to look for a list as an image. Good thinking. I will have to see what other ones are online. These are great to print out if you have kids.

There are several online, both on sites and as pictures. You should find one that works best for your and your budget. Some vegetables are cheaper than others so you might want to stick with a more affordable variety if you are on a budget.

There are a lot of lists and sources online. I could link you a bunch but I think the one linked above is probably the best I have seen. I am actually going to save that page myself.

@vallie.brown really great picture you've found!


I'll have to save this image for when I get a guinea pig. Which is soon hopefully.
