Supplements Is there such this as too much vitamin C?

I just got two new guinea pigs. The lady who fostered them at the shelter didn't give them any hay while they were staying with her. (which luckily was only a few weeks) They love veggies and the foster mom definitely didn't lack in those! Basically my question is Do I need to give them vitamin C supplements if I give them veggies with vitamin C in them daily? and if not, what is the recommended amount of veggies to give them?


Thanks for your help, as always!
 
And don't worry about the hay, I have tons stocked up and they're getting back into their hay habits. :)
 
If they're getting plenty of fresh veggies, you don't need to supplement with vitamin C.
