Can my Guinea Pig eat Mandarin Orange (Or Tangerine)?

Yes, they can eat it up to 1-2 times a week




High in sugar and acid - a guinea pig should have no more than 2 sections per week


While this is a good source of vitamin C, the high sugar content means that it needs to be fed in small amounts as an occasional treat.






 

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.
