Can my Guinea Pig eat Zucchini (Courgette) (Summer Squash)?
Updated: May 2
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 great crop to grow at home, zucchini can be very productive during the summer months, and is a great option for increasing hydration due to the high water content.
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.
