Can Guinea Pigs Eat Watermelon?

 

What Parts of the Watermelon Can Guinea Pigs Eat?

Guinea pigs are able to eat the flesh and the rind. While eating seeds will not harm a guinea pig, we do not recommend leaving the seeds in because they can be a choking hazard.

How Often Can Guinea Pigs Have Watermelon?

Guinea pigs should eat very little of the actual flesh of the fruit – which is great news for us! This is because the flesh is high in sugar and isn’t very good for your guinea pig beyond an occasional treat. It is better to share the rind with your furry friend and leave a small amount of pink on it as a treat. Still, the rind should be fed in moderation.

Don’t Forget to Clean Up!

Watermelon is quite sticky and sugary! Remember to clean any fleece, bedding, or blanket that had the watermelon on it to keep away pesky party crashers like ants!

Enjoy the watermelon and leave the rinds for your pigs!
