Can my Guinea Pig eat Melon Cantaloupe (Rock Melon)?
Yes, they can eat it up to 1-2 times a week!
High in sugar - a guinea pig should have no more than a 1 cm x 1 cm piece twice a week
A summer treat suitable for pets and humans, rockmelon is high in sugar and is the pet equivalent of a candy bar!
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.
