Vitamin C?! Help!

I don't think my piggie is getting enough vitamin C...is it okay for me to put crushed Vitamin C tablets in its food dish?
 
Re: Vitamin C?! Help!

If you give 20g (about 1 oz.) of red pepper a day per GP they get enough vitamin C. I don't use tablet or drops and they are in great shape.

My two girls love red pepper.
Try to give it when they are more hungry, some orange can help as well.
 
ok

alright, but isn't orange bad for their teeth?

Re: ok

I didn't know orange was bad for the teeth, why should be ?
Have you read it somewhere on the web or on some book ?

WEll, my mom told me that oranges and orange juice is just like soda, that it has acids that wear away teeth and bones.

Re: hmmm

Plenty of fruits and vegetables, along with Timothy Hay(and occasionally other types of hay like Alfalfa) should be given regularly.

I've had Guinea Pig's for over 4 years and I don't give them oranges very much. A few of my Guinea Pig's like red peppers, but others don't! I have 12 pigs in all... so they all have their food preferences! :evil:

The tip Golden Sonata gave about oranges and orange juice is correct. :)
 
Wears away bones

Oranges and orange juice have acids that can wear away teeth and bones.
 
IGNORE MY LAST POST, AGAIN
