    Careless My guinea pig ate a piece of avocado skin. Will there be any issues?

    My guinea pig, Kasper just had his floor time and there were avocados on the floor that I didnít know were there. He ate a dime sized shape of avocado skin. Will there be any issues with his health? I heard that avocado skin and seeds/pits are toxic towards them.

    Avocados are in the do not feed list for guinea pigs. Too high in fat, and the skin can be toxic.

    I would keep a VERY close eye on him, and if he appears to have an issue get him to a cavy savvy vet ASAP.
