    Homemade guinea pig treats?

    I was looking for some cozy patterns online and stumbled on this

    Homemade Guinea Pig and Rabbit Treats - Associated Content

    It really sounds like a good idea, but the olive or vegetable oil and oats isn't a good idea I don't think. Anyone have any ideas on making piggie treats? Just curious has anyone tried something that is healthy and new? I really want to make there life exciting and I'm willing to do whatever it takes that is safe for my girls.

    There are some previous threads on this, but to be honest the treats they will appreciate the most are their favorite veggies and a big pile of hay to play in. If you aren't giving them grass, try growing some wheatgrass inside for them. Most pigs absolutely love it!

    Ditto akstrohm, the best treats are favorite veggies and a big pile of hay.

    I was just curious. I have some Cilatro in soil now. You suggested the Wheatgrass to me in a previous post that I still have to try. Thanks for the response on this.

    I wouldn't use this recipe. The best treats are fresh fruits and veggies and things like fresh forages (grass, dandelions, clover, etc).
