Can my Guinea Pig eat Taro Leaves?

Updated: May 2, 2022

No, they can never eat it!




Moderate irritant and toxin


Taro leaves are notorious for their irritant properties, and should never be fed to pets.









 

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.
