How much does a guinea pig eat in a day?

It costs about $35 a month to feed one guinea pig correctly. Guinea pigs need a variety of food on a daily basis. First a high quality pellet (Oxbow is what I prefer) each guinea pig will eat about 1/8 cup of pellet food a day. Timothy hay should be available at all times, literally at all times. Then about a cup of fresh vegetables and a small amount of fresh fruit a day as well. High calcium and sugary foods can be dangerous in large amounts and should only be offered in small quantities I have enclosed my weekly fruit and veggie chart just for reference. Although I give 1 cup(ish) of fresh veggies a day I do not stick to this list 100% as sometimes these are out of season or just too pricey, but it gives a good idea of how to provide variety and in what quantities to give. {| |- | Sample Week Monday: 200 grams of Butter head Lettuce, 1 Cherry Tomato, 100 grams of Yam Tuesday: 200 grams of Romaine Lettuce, 100 Grams of Zucchini, 25 grams of Raspberries Wednesday 200 grams of Butter head Lettuce, 1 Cherry Tomato, 100 grams of Yam Thursday: 200 grams of Butter head Lettuce, 1 Baby Carrot, Friday: 200 grams of Butter head Lettuce, 1 Cherry Tomato, 100 grams of Yam Saturday: 200 grams of Romaine Lettuce, 100 Grams of Zucchini, 25 grams of Raspberries Sunday: 200 grams of Butter head Lettuce, 1 Baby Carrot, |}
