Your Guinea pig longs for pellets that can be purchased at a pet shop or farm store. Include in his diet, raw vegetables such as lettuce, carrots, and cantaloupe.

Guinea pigs are grazzing animals. Grass hay should be provided. They should also be given fresh vegetables and pellets, made for Guinea pigs. Do not use pellets that contain nuts and dried fruits as they are high in fat. Guinea pigs need about 10 mg of vitamin C daily, so provide turnip and mustard greens, Kale, Parsley and cauliflower.
