Dear Dr. Dolittle
My guinea pig is six months old and I would like to expand her diet. What else can I give her besides pellets?
Pigging out- Cotai

Dear Pigging Out
You should definitely give her some hay, to help with the growth of her teeth and something high in vitamin C, like kiwi, strawberries or pineapple. They usually also like parsley, coriander and capsicum a lot. You can try most vegetables, but try to avoid the ones that are mostly composed of water (like lettuce).
