If you go by the data that usda supply, the cloudberries are absolutely fantastic for guinea pigs as they contain a hint of fat, phosphorus and calcium and are a little acidic but they have an absolute ton on vitamin c which is wonderful as our poor guinea pigs can’t produce their own.
So certainly guinea pigs can eat cloudberries, in fact they can be eaten three to four times a week.
Happy eating, piggies 🙂
