Herbs Safe to feed Guinea Pigs

Bramble/Blackberry bush- be careful to remove thorns, very useful if they have diarriah.

Chickweed -


Common Borage-


Clovers- white or red mixed with grass.

Cleavers,goose grass or sticky weed. safe and enjoyed, care to be taken with long hairs as can matt in the coat..

Dandelions - is a diuretic aswell as a laxative, so best fed with other grasss, as too much over time can cause irratation to the kidneys, fed in moderation is a very valuable green food.

Grass - Large amounts can be fed, but caution should be taken to introduce slowly, starting from a handful or 10 mins in a run and gradully increasing the time over the next few weeks, to avoid tummy upsetts, this also applies after the winter when stating on spring grass, as very high in sugar at this time of the year. GRASS MOWINGS SHOULD BE AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS, AS STARTS TO HEAT UP AND FORMENTATION IN THE STOMACH CAN LEAD TO THE GUINEA PIGS GETTING BLOAT/DIARRIAH.


Lemon Grass-

Mint- not for nursing babies.


Parsley- not for nursing babies

strawberry leaves




Yarrow- appertizer, helpful for cystitis/kidney diesese.

Branches from fruit trees

Apple, pear, Hazelnut

be careful in the spring, not to feed new leaves.
