    Young pig doesn?t like anything but hay and pellets.

    My aprox 3mo LOVES her hay so I?m not concerned about that and she eats her pellets consistently, but she doesn?t like anything else except parsley. I read that they can only have parsley a few times a weeks and I would like to be able to give her a variety but she sticks her nose up at everything and then burys it. No to carrots, bell peppers, grapes. I?m pretty sure it?s because it?s harder because she won?t chew on any wood blocks/toys either. (Another concern) She just seems to like leafy textures I think.

    Is she getting enough nutrition or do I need to get her a special something for her diet?

    She doesn't need to chew on wooden blocks and toys. The grinding motion of the molars chewing hay are what keep the front teeth the right link. I've had guinea pigs for nearly 10 years and I've never had one that would chew on anything wooden.

    For suggestions on getting her to eat veggies, see this: https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum...eat-vegetables
