Guinea pigs cannot live entirely off hay, and like humans, they cannot produce their own vitamin C. So, is it okay to give them vitamin C tablets?


Some fruits can provide vitamin C, but I had a pig who was very picky with what he'd eat, and our vet recommended we give him vitamin C drops, not tablets, that were safe for small animals. I wouldn't do anything without checking with your vet first.
