Guinea Pig Litter

A guinea pig litter may sell quickly; some farms do quite well raising this rodent for the commerical market. Cavies are mainly plant-eaters; they can be fed with carrot, beetroot, broccoli, cabbage, peas, green leaves, but not lettuce, it causes colic. They should have a daily supply of fresh vegetables and hay. These products provide cavies with the fiber, vitamins and minerals they require to stay fit and healthy. A coarse mix provides everything your cavy needs including vitamins and minerals and comes in one handy bag. Also, they should be provided with a salt ring and “chews” to gnaw on them. These animals know what is good for them and also how much is good for them, but try not to over feed them.
