Due to the fact that our guinea pigs can not graze around the clock on high-quality motley grass, it is necessary to offer them a large selection of fresh vegetables and greens every day. A portion of juicy food should be daily 20-30% of body weight, this is approximately 200-300 grams per adult.
Portions of succulent fodder for babies in grams are indicated in the section Feeding toddlers and pregnant females. To satisfy in vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, juicy foods should be offered at least twice during the day. The uneaten remains should be removed to prevent the development of bacteria and mold. Before feeding, the food should be thoroughly washed.
Diversity is important for guinea pigs, although some mistakenly believe that quite enough cucumbers and carrots. Fruits can be given only as a snack in a small piece not more often 2-3 times a week, if the pig does not have a penchant for cheilitis, then the amount can be increased up to 4 times a week.
