By increasing our understanding of the basic nutritional requirements of pet Guinea pigs, positive contributions can be made to improving their overall health and welfare. This webinar will review what we currently know concerning pet Guinea pig nutritional requirements. Wild Guinea pig diets will be discussed and current pet Guinea pig owner feeding habits detailed. The webinar will also cover possible adverse effects of incorrect nutrition on Guinea pigs and how this may affect their welfare. Were information is lacking for Guinea pigs, possible diet extrapolations from other species will be discussed. This webinar will be helpful as an overview of Guinea pig nutrition for all veterinary staff treating pet Guinea pigs, and giving dietary advice in veterinary practice.
