Guinea pigs are herbivores and so can’t eat any types of meat at all. That includes any fresh meats to processed meats, hot or cold.

So if you are thinking of giving your guinea pig meat at all, then steer clear of it.

They will much prefer eating veggies, fruits, hays, plus guinea pig mix which will provide a lot more nutritional benefit for them.

  1. We had two baby rabbits and two Guinea pigs housed together. The Guinea pigs killed and ate on one and we discovered the other has bites and raw feet. If Guinea pigs are only herbivores then what caused them to eat a baby rabbit?

    1. Satanic Possession by the looks of things…

      Guinea pigs are feeble minded creatures and are easily manipulated by the devil to perform Satanic Rituals against other Guinea Pigs. Your Guinea pigs were probably possessed and should be kept away from the rabbits.

      Honestly though, its probably a competition for resources. Keep them apart and your remaining rabbit would be safe. The Guinea pigs are probably not eating the rabbits but fighting with them.

  2. My 2 guinea pigs ate lamb shank and gravy as well as beef biscuits from a dog bowl. Anyone have seen this before?
