Can my Guinea Pig eat Clematis (Virgin’s Bower)?
Updated: May 3
No, they can never eat it!
Severe irritant, can cause gastrointestinal hemorrhage
Sometimes grown as an ornamental plant, this plant is severely irritant, especially to the gastrointestinal system, and the resulting damage can be fatal
Guinea pigs and rabbits should have a variety of at least 5 different types of leafy greens to protect against nutritional excesses and deficiencies. At least 80% of the diet should be a good quality grass or cereal hay.
