4. Sample Guinea Pig Feeding Routine:
|in the morning||large amount of hey, provide first fresh food|
|at noon||provide the second meal of fresh food|
|at afternoon||provide the third meal of fresh food / may be some fruits|
|in the evening||provide the last meal of fresh food|
|Fresh hay has to be provided all time. Water has to be filled up from time to time. Only use clear and fresh water. There is no reason to provide special “rodent-water” from the pet shop if you take care about the food for your Guinea Pigs. Fresh food are always undried vegetables or fresh picked grass which is natural rich in water. You should provide at least 10% fresh food of its Cavys own weight each day. Fruits should only be provided once a week due to its fruit acids and fructose.|
