dog treats
have any of you given your piggies dog bones/biscits? i heard you could, but......?? :confused:

I wouldn't think it would be wise. A guinea pig is an obligate herbivore, whereas a dog eats meats and most dog treats contain meat of some form. I'd stick to veggies and such for your GP.

I have never heard of it and would frown upon it too. Veggies for treats are what my herd gets here.

yeah...i just wondered cuz this book we got it showed one nibbling on a dog biscit and said you could give them fruit based ones... :confused: but...better safe than...sick!

I've never thought about giving them to my pigs but we used to give them to my hamsters when i was younger. You could try giving them parsly - mine love it!

I don't have guinea piggers, but I'd also say no to giving them dog bones. Like everyone else here has said, I'd stick to veggies and such for treats. ;)
