    Does anyone know of a reliable site that lists fruits and vegetables that are safe or unsafe for guinea pigs? I give Steven oranges, carrots, cucumber and the other day I gave him a peice of brocolli. I would like to give him more variety. What kinds of fruits and vegetables do your pigs like?

    How much do you give him in one day? I'm so paranoid that I will give too much and cause digestive upsets so I've been only giving him 1 or 2 baby carrots or 1 orange slice or 1 cucumber slice, ect. daily....no digestive upsets so far but I wonder if I could give him a bit more? He also gets pellets and usually 1 Yogie treat and is free fed Timothy hay and/or Orchard grass (which is loves).

    i free feed pumba the pellets and he has hay in his lil house.... i usually give him 3 vegies and 2 peices of fruit a day like today he had 2 carrots a peice of broccoli and a slice of cucumber then he had a slice of apple and a small peice of watermelon.... the vet hasnt said anything bout me over feeding him sooo.... but i know what u mean im still worried that i might overfeed him.... but hes pretty good at stoping when hes full and then he likes to go wild and play w/ all his toys then eat a lil more then plays etc....i put a run 4 him outside that is just chicken wire in a circle that i put up on the grass and he runs like crazy in it...hes only maybe a month and a week old so i use the veggies and fruits to get him to come out of his cage since hes still a lil scared....

    I heard that you should avoid stuff like celery and lettuce because they have too much water but I don't see the harm in that! However, don't quote me!

    So far his favorite seems to be carrots...no matter what I put in his bowl he takes a carrot first if there is one in there. :mrgreen:
    He also likes peas, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, strawberries, necterines and pears. The only thing he does'nt seem to care for is zucchini so far.
