    Don’t give them canned, too much salt. Frozen and thawed is ok if you have nothing else but fresh is best. Corn and peas are high in starch and might make them fat if fed too much. Check with your local pet store on proper diet.

    Remember, it has to be fun and practical too. Legos wouldn’t be so because dirt and other debris can get stuck in the cracks of the lego wall. Also, guinea pigs tend to gnaw, so wood isn’t too practical. Wood can splinter and hurt their mouths, too. I use a multilevel ferret cage, actually. I keep the ramps up to each level low so the guinea pigs can climb it. They seem to really enjoy it. I think the only flaw is that they can fling their stuff over the edges of the platforms. I’ve heard of kiddie pools being used as cages, which isn’t too bad. Good luck.

    I would stay away from feeding guinea pigs anything thats not made for them. Anything with a high water content, like canned foods and iceberg lettuce is VERY bad for any animals. Especially canned foods because it’s not just the veggies he is getting, but also the preservatives. Very bad for animals. If you wanna get him a treat, go to the petstore and get a salt wheel or a flavored wooden block. They have TONS of stuff for guineas.

    They certainly can eat canned corn. Make sure you guinea pig gets access to fresh grass (for calcium) and pumpkin or other sources of Vitamin C (scurvy prevention) as these are the 2 main causes of death in young pigs

    Guinea pigs may only be fed their diet foods or formulas, fresh veggies/fruit and hay. Frozen and canned veggies/fruits aren’t really recommended.

    i wouldn’t reccomend it. try the pet food section instead, unless you ran out and need to wait for 2 morrow when the stores are open.
