    Exclamation Of Course!!

    Guinea pigs need fruits...apples have no Vitamin C value but I found that mine enjoys the apple and the peeled apple skins...it wont hurt them but it doesnt do much...

    Mine like occasional slices when I have them available. They also have to have !!! 2slices of banana in the morning, except for the peruvian.

    I feed my pigs, everyday and night, apples, celery, romaine lettuce, kale, carrots. If you check out my members page, you will see some of what they get.

    Yes they can! But take it easy, too much sour (apples, oranges etc) is not good for them.

    Feed them in moderation. Apples are considered treats for them. Also carrots. Too much carrots isn't good for them either. One baby carrots for one pig a day will be fine.
