Vitamin C

DEFICIENCY

#1
"This is caused by not enough Vitamin C in the cavy's diet. While Guinea Pig pellets are supplemented, but they can lose potency really quick, especially in hot, humid weather. The best way to prevent the problem is to supplement the guinea pig's diet with high vitamin c foods."

DO NOT ADD VITAMIN C SUPPLEMENTS TO THIER WATER!

#2
"Ascorbic acid is essential to good growth and health. Since guinea pigs cannot produce their own vitamin C, it must be supplied in the food they eat."

Vitamins

Post  Admin on Sat Mar 21, 2009 7:44 am

Vitamin A

"Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin. Commercial feeds usually have this added at the proper level so there is no need to supplement the diet of guinea pigs."

Vitamin B Complex

"B Complex vitamins are provided by the grains in the animals diet but the bulk are synthesized by good bacteria in the animals own gut."

Vitamin D

"Vitamin D is another fat soluble vitamin. As with Vitamin A, both deficiency and excess can cause health problems. Feed for guinea pigs should contain no more than 1,600 iu per kilogram food. 1,200 iu would be quite adequate."

Vitamin E

"Vitamin E is important for cardiac health, fertility and maintenance of pregnancy in guinea pigs. Lack of it can lead to infertility, abortion, stillbirth and neonatal death."
