Can my Guinea Pig eat Dandelion Greens?
Yes, they can eat it daily
A delicious addition to a varied diet - guinea pigs should have a minimum of 5 leafy greens to make up their staple vegetable portion.
A popular favourite, and easily found growing wild! Be careful to wash gathered dandelions thoroughly, and be mindful of viral risks when collected from areas with wild animals.
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.
