I read somewhere that guinea pigs could have bread is this true?
 
I've fed my piggies some crunchy jewish rye (yum) and they really loved it! I guess it depends on the bread.
 
Nope. Bread in he digestive system turns into sugar. If you wouldn't feed your GP a bowl of sugar then don't feed them bread.

Feeding high carb foods like bread, cereals, sweetened treats can cause GP diabetes.
 
Ok, thanks then I won't try it!
 
That is good to know. My daughter keeps wanting to put crust in their cage. I let her try it, they did not like the bread and did not eat it anyway. Now I know it not good! :0)
