There are all kinds of pasta available that you can buy around the world.
However, pasta is made up of carbs and flour no matter what shape or size it comes in.
So can guinea pigs eat pasta, and if they can, how much can they eat?
Can guinea pigs eat pasta?
Unfortunately, guinea pigs really shouldn’t eat pasta.
The reason why is that guinea pigs are herbivores and so pasta whether cooked or uncooked is not good for them.
They may like to nibble at uncooked pasta because it is hard and it will be something to grind their teeth on.
However, because they are made from carbs and flour, they aren’t good for them.
There are better things for them to gnaw on and grind their teeth.
So if you are tempted to give guinea pigs pasta, whether cooked or uncooked then think again and try something else.

My piggy had a little nibble at a bit of raw pasta, will it harm her?
A little wont hurt, just make sure your not giving her the entire box of your pasta inventory.
my guinea pig, cabbage, squeaks when i walk in the room, he’s got everything, water, hay and pellets and he squeaks when i have food, why is that?
My guineas do that too. I think its because they are social creatures and if you are eating, then they feel they should be eating. My brother didnt believe me that my guinea pigs are basically insulted if I dont fed them while I am eating. He joined me for dinner one evening and was astonished by their reactions. Wheak Wheeeeakkkk… Who can blame them? 🙂
Your guinea pig may also be lonely. Pet him, give him floor time. Or even consider a friend.
I think that they get excited. Mine go crazy when I open the fridge.
