Can my Guinea Pig eat Beets (Beetroot)?

Updated: May 2, 2022

Yes, but very sparingly!




High in sugar, and will stain the pigs and enclosure!


Beets are notoriously high in sugar so feed in teeny, tiny amounts! They can be a good option for tempting unwell animals to eat if they've previously enjoyed beets







 

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.
