Vitamin C Deficiency

Vitamin C Deficiency

Guinea pigs will start to walk oddly when they are not getting enough vitamin C in their diet.

Guinea pigs, like us, cannot make their own vitamin C and must get it through the foods they eat.

If you suspect your guinea pig may have vitamin C deficiency your guinea pig immediately needs additional vitamin C. You can provide this via pet Vitamin C tablets which you can purchase from pet supply places or vets.

You can also purchase “Ascorbic Acid” (chemical free) from a chemist or health food store which is a powdered form of vitamin C. Simply sprinkle a pinch of it directly on the fresh fruit and veg and you will know that piggie is now getting a good supply of vitamin C.
