Guinea Pig FAQs

**SPECIAL NOTE** This is one of the hottest topics on the Cyberpig site. We get varying opinions, with vets generally stating while this practice is common, it is not a sign of perfect health. That indeed these gpigs are lacking in "digestive enzymes" (rather than vitamins and minerals), and eating feces provides some of those enzymes back into the digestive process. While vitamin and minerals can be given to gpigs though changes in diet or commercial supplements, digestive enzymes cannot. Your gpig is not "sick", and will probably live many more years even with this condition.
