Can my Guinea Pig eat Iceberg Lettuce?

Updated: May 3

No, this is not recommended.



Nutritionally poor


Iceberg lettuce isn't toxic, but the high water content makes it useless as a source of nutrition, and is best avoided.








 

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.
