Brownie was outside eating grass, when suddenly she pounced on a large maple leaf and ate it! :?: Is this safe to eat, and will Brownie be okay??
 
My husband fed Henry a maple leaf and now i'm super worried. Do I need to take him to the vet?
 
Certain varieties of maple are toxic to some animals. Horses, for example, cannot tolerate red maple leaves.

I can't find anything about the toxicity of maple leaves to guinea pigs, but I certainly wouldn't recommend that they eat them. If they've already eaten them and the leaves are toxic, I doubt that a vet could do anything for them.

I definitely wouldn't let my two pigs eat maple leaves of any kind.
