Bunch of Green and Red (Black) Grapes

Can Guinea Pigs Eat Grapes?

Grapes are safe for guinea pigs to eat but because of the high sugar content (over 15% sugars), this fruit should be considered a rare treat. They can eat the skins too but you should remove any seeds or give the seedless variety.

Both green (or white) and red (or black) grapes are very high in sugar which is something that is not good for your cavy. Too much sugar can lead to obesity and other health problems in your pet. If your guinea pig is overweight, it is best to keep them off sugary fruits and stick to vegetables. 

Always give grapes a thorough rinse to remove any chemicals or bacteria that might be lurking and remove them from the vine, taking off any stalks.

Any fruit should only be fed to your cavies on a very occasional basis. To keep your pet healthy, grapes must definitely not form a main part of their daily or even weekly diet.
