Can guinea pigs eat carpet?

Well not really as it does neither you or your guinea pigs much good.

The trick is to divert their attention to something else to chew on.

Give them some cardboard, or better still some veggies, and they will soon stop.

You can’t stop guinea pigs from chewing but you can give them better things to chew on.
