Can my Guinea Pig eat Red Potato?

No, they can never eat it!




Can be high in carbohydrates, which can predispose to bloat, digestive upset, or enterotoxemia.


Potatoes and other tubers are extremely starchy and are at a high risk for causing severe gastrointestinal upset. Raw potatoes are also highly fermentable and poorly digestible.





 

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.
