Can guinea pigs eat shredded wheat?

Can guinea pigs eat shredded wheat? Shredded wheat is a breakfast cereal made from whole wheat formed into pillow-like biscuits. It is commonly available in three sizes — bite sized (¾×1 in), miniature (nearly half the size of the bite-sized pieces), and original.

Both smaller sizes are available in a frosted variety, which has one side coated with sugar and usually gelatin.

Some manufacturers have produced “filled” versions of the bite-size cereal containing a raisin at the center, or apricot, blueberry, raspberry or cranberry filling. (source)

Can guinea pigs eat shredded wheat?

Yes, they can nibble them. Dry breakfast cereal is always much better for them though, and make sure it is without any additives or flavorings such as sugar or chocolate on them.

They also shouldn’t have them with milk.

However, they are just a treat for guinea pigs and shouldn’t be given as part of their regular diet.
