Can my Guinea Pig eat Corn On The Cob?

Updated: May 2

No, this is not recommended.



Can be high in carbohydrates, which can predispose to bloat, digestive upset, or enterotoxemia.


Most pets will love corn due to the sweet taste, but with that taste comes lots of fermentable carbohydrates, which can make them sick. Although some pets can cope with it, we don't recommend feeding corn to be on the safe side.



 

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.
