    My guinea pig ate cooked rice!

    I was having white rice for lunch with Peanut on my lap. I dropped a bit on my shirt, and before I could pick it up, Peanut stood up and ate ALL of it! I'm aware that guinea pigs cannot digest starch. Peanut is doing fine, she's eating,peeing and pooping normally.No signs of illness. I'm still very nervous, is cooked rice harmful to her? What should I do for her?
    Thank you.

    She should be just fine, as long as she didn't eat a lot of it. Just make sure she has plenty of water and fresh hay, and obviously monitor her for any signs of trouble. I don't think you'll see any but better safe than sorry.
