So can guinea pigs drink soda?

There is a limited choice. Unfortunately in that list of one thing, soda isn’t it.

The problem with soda is that it is stock full of additives, sugars, days, acids and other preservatives that they can’t handle.

By giving them fresh water daily, you will give them the refreshment that they need and won’t harm them in the process.

So give the fresh water, and steer clear of any kind of soda.
