    I see peas on the list but can snow peas still in the pods be given to guinea pigs? I just got some would love to give them some.

    I've given both snow and the other one, forget what it's call, in pods like a couple times a week. Mooshy likes to dig for the peas and doesn't always eat it all. I looked at it like an activity to do, just like string beans. She's on and off about liking these things though so I give it to her if I'm having it for myself as well. Not one of those things I buy only for her.

    I'd be concerned about corn with Madea too. If it was a choking hazzard to Minerva, it could be to Madea. Corn is so not necessary with the very high sugar content and it being a starch like potatoes which are a no on the list so I never bother with it for Moosh.

    @AddysPiggies @bpatters just answered your question. The link is to what you can feed your piggies and how often.

    I'm not sure diet changes would do much for chronic cystitis. Some pigs have interstitial cystitis, but there's not much known about how diet affects it. In people, some foods can cause a flare up, so you might try removing one item at a time from his diet for a couple of weeks and see if there's any improvement. Just don't remove his hay or his vitamin C source.
