I had been asked by a few members to make readily available some sample veggie menus. So I have asked some of the members to help me and contribute their veggie menus so that I could make this thread. These are sample veggie menus for this threads purposes. You may use these as they are or modify them to suit your guinea pigs needs. Keep in mind that other things can be added in and these plans can be modified due to what is in season or what is available to you.

I am going to list each diet plan in it's own thread. If you would like to contribute and you feed a good variety of veggies, please email or pm your diet to me and I will add it to this thread.

This thread kind of goes along with the charts thread which can be found here- https://www.guineapigcages.com/foru...cavys-diet-read-me-nutrition-charts-info.html.

I highly advise everyone to read the second post in that thread which contains a great list of Do's and Don'ts concerning diet and nutrition.

There will also be other diet menus coming specifically for stone pigs and diabetic pigs.
