As you can see, green leaf lettuce contains a hint of phosphorus, a little calcium and a little acid. But it does contain a good deal of vitamin c which is fantastic for guinea pigs.
With that in mind guinea pigs can eat green leaf lettuce almost on a daily basis as they contain little bad stuff for piggies. Five times a week as standard would suffice, but because of its acidic and phosphorus content, not every day and it does them good to have a break from it.
