Can my Guinea Pig eat Beet Greens/Leaves (Beetroot Greens/Leaves) ?

Yes, they can eat it up to 2-4 times a week!

A suitable occasional addition but contains oxalic acid which can bind nutrients and act as a mild irritant.

While this uncommon leafy green can be well liked by pets, be sure to feed it sparingly in small amounts, and in combination with 3-4 other types of 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.
