Cavy Savvy is a guinea pig blog written from the perspective of three guinea pigs: Lola, Buffy and Broccoli. We review guinea pig products, pet food, toys, bedding, cages and more to provide humans with all they need to know about guinea pigs!




You are watching: Can guinea pigs eat turnip greens

Turnips are root vegetables. We"ve read mixed reviews from different guinea pig owners on this one. One person said they were "an instant hit," while another person said turnips are "usually not much of a success story." We"ll just have to decide for ourselves, then! We can eat turnips only 1-2 times per week because they are high in sugar and oxalates. Turnips leaves, also known as turnip greens, can also be fed to guinea pigs(see our previous post for details).

This is a turnip. The humans peeled the outside, and cut up the inside part into cubes for us.

Our verdict our turnips: Not bad, but not the best vegetable we"ve ever had. We each had our fill, and then left a pile of chunks behind for the humans to clean up. We"ll give turnips 3/5 stars.

Cool! Sounds like turnips are OK! If our human ever has some to spare, I'm sure that she will give it to us!XOXOAshley & Wendy
