One thought on “Can Guinea Pigs Eat Noodles?

  1. I don’t really see why they can’t my guinea pig loves the hell out of noodles both dry and cooked, she especially loves ramen noodles. (chicken of course) i swear she should have been born in china. anyway, she is healthy and i don’t feed her them often, maybe once in a blue moon as a treat. same with honey and maple syrup she loves the shit out of those items. i figure you look at wild guinea pigs, they dig in garbage dumpsters for food and eat whatever they feel is safe, so all in all her instincts should tell her if its bad or not.
