Health Benefits of Oranges for Guinea Pigs

Based almost solely on their abundant vitamin C content, oranges are healthy for guinea pigs. Vitamin C

 is a crucial ingredient that guinea pigs need to be supplemented with in their diets to have

enough of, and it's important for protecting their skin and internal organs from illness.

In fact, you'll need to add a liquid supplement to your guinea pig's water supply if dietary sources of vitamin

 C are not available. To prevent your guinea pig from acquiring too much weight, limit these sweet snacks to once or twice a week.

Oranges have a pretty high sugar content, which is the main nutritional risk they can provide to guinea pigs.
