    Can guinea pigs eat grapes?

    Hi, I was wondering if my piggies could eat grapes since I have a whole bag full of them. They are seedless.

    Yes, Guinea pigs can eat seedless grapes. You probably know this, but since it is a fruit, it is high in natural sugar so should be fed only 2-3 times a week. They are perfect for rewards if you are training them tricks!

    http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/...ants-list.html

    a link to the pdf of the charts is on the page also for easy print out ability

    according to Ly's chart grapes (25g)
    may be fed frequently (blue colour coding)
    1 to 4 times per week.
    Red or Green and Seedless

    The charts are found at the forum menu of diet and nutrition in the sticky notes section - you will also find there sample menu's for ease of use.

    I recall reading elsewhere on the forum that 2 grapes at a time is your safe limit. Like Gabbels said watch the sugar, especially, I'd think, if you happen to be feeding other sugary feeds at the same times of the grapes.
