Although guinea pigs can eat celery, complications can arise when guinea pigs eat celery in large quantities. Overfeeding celery to your guinea pigs or feeding celery to your guinea pig everyday will rather cause complications to it. Thus, it is imperative that you give your guinea pig celery in moderate quantities.
Celery is high in oxalates and calcium, which is quite harmful to guinea pigs. Oxalates and calcium can cause urinary problems for guinea pigs. It can lead to bladder stones.
Several reports have shown that oxalates and calcium will make your guinea pigs prone to having bladder stones, which is dangerous to guinea pigs’ health. It is usually very painful, and it can cause guinea pigs to be dull and inactive. Sodium is another mineral that causes problems for guinea pigs; just like calcium, it causes problems to the urinary tract of a guinea pig.
Thus, you should be very careful when you feed your guinea pigs celery. You can give your guinea pigs a piece of celery about twice or thrice a week. Just don’t make it an everyday diet. Also, be sure to wash the celery before feeding it to your guinea pigs.
