    What food do I feed

    I'm getting a guinea pig soon and I was wondering what pellets are best for them. Also what is the best kind of lettuce for them.

    Thanks

    My local guinea pig rescue uses Oxbow for pellets. I've heard a lot of good things from Oxbow, so I'd stick with them.

    As far as lettuce, I've heard red leaf and green leaf are the best. Some people use romaine, but it may cause bladder stones in some piggies.

    Welcome to the forum! Here are some links with forum topics for new guinea pig owners:

    https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/threads/107827-What-NOT-to-do-for-your-guinea-pigs

    Basically, guinea pigs should be fed about a cup of fresh veggies daily, the majority of it should be red or green leaf lettuce and it should include a good vitamin C source, such as bell pepper.
