Treats For Guinea Pigs

As well as feeding them quality hay, leafy greens and pelleted food, you can also include some tasty, safe treats for your guinea pigs. Healthy snacks for guinea pigs not only provide a yummy treat but can also keep boredom at bay. Try hiding your guinea pigs' treats around their hutch or among their hay to encourage their natural foraging behaviour.

What should you look for in healthy guinea pig treats?

Guinea pigs need lots of fibre to stay healthy so it’s important to choose treats that contain plenty of it. Specially designed treats for guinea pigs are the ideal option as they contain the right balance of nutrients that your small animals need.

While tasty snacks provide a delicious treat, it’s important to always remember to follow the Excel Feeding Plan and give them just the right amount. 85-90% of your guinea pigs’ diet should be made up of good-quality hay or fresh grass.

Our tasty range of Excel Guinea Pig treats are made with the finest ingredients, to keep your little rodents happy and healthy. Choose from our exciting range including Forest & Feast Hay Bars, Herby Hearts and Meadow Munchies, and feed occasionally as part of their healthy, balanced diet.
