I am so impressed with your chart. it's going to be my Guinea Pig Bible! lol, food diet wise.

I read quite a bit of this forum and I remember reading that you were going to make a chart that had pictures of the actual vegetables. Have you completed that yet? If so, where can I get a copy of it at?

I have your written color coded list, but I think pictures will be a huge help for me considering I don't know what all these vegetables look like.

Sorry if this is a redundant question... and again I'm truly impressed with you work.

Also, another question, do I need to get a kitchen scale to measure everything to make sure I
have the right amounts per serving? If not, how do I determine? I just want to make sure I am doing this exactly right.


Thank You For Everything!

Ly&Pigs isn't very active on the forum these days -- she has an actual job she's working at! There's been some talk about some of the rest of us working on the food charts, but no one's actually gotten around to it yet.

You want to aim for a cup of veggies per pig per day. I usually give that, plus a large lettuce leaf each, and split the lettuce serving into two parts. One of the staples in the diet needs to be lettuce (I recommend red or green leaf, in case your pig is one of those that produces sludgy urine on romaine), and another needs to be bell pepper (for the vitamin C). Other than that, it's pretty much up to what's in your fridge, or available at your store, or what they'll eat. Check out https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/diet-nutrition/24770-sample-veggie-menus.html for some good menus.
