Can my Guinea Pig eat Lettuce Romaine (Cos Lettuce)?
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 common lettuce and a good choice in summer due to the higher water content, it can be fairly low in nutritional value, so ensure that it is fed in combination with other leafy greens.
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.
