Can my Guinea Pig eat Eggplant?
Updated: May 2
No, this is not recommended.
Acts as a moderate irritant.
Due to the bitter compounds in the peel and seeds, eggplants can be irritating to the mouth and digestive system.
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.
