Can a guinea pig eat lettuce?
There is no problem with guinea pigs eating a small amount of lettuce daily. They certainly enjoy it. It's true that lettuce is high in water, so there is some chance of a guinea pig developing diarrhoea if it eats too much. Always remove any uneaten lettuce afterwards, as most guinea pigs will only eat what at they want, and the remaining lettuce will get fusty.

Can guinea pigs eat iceberg lettice?
Guinea pigs can absolutely eat iceberg lettuce. If you happen to have extra iceberg on hand, go ahead and feed it to your guinea pig. If, however, you are looking for a tasty treat to buy for your guinea pig, romaine lettuce is packed full of vitamins (it has more vitamin C in it- which is a necessary dietary requirement for all guinea pigs).
