Is this grass ok for my guinea pig?

Posted by: aaa_janitor In: Backyard Putting Greens

my front yard and backyard has very green grass, it has never been treated with chemicals, but it gets mowed every 2 weeks, and we put fertilizer on it every fall, is this grass ok for her to eat?
the fertilizer isnt on the grass now

Do not listen to these people! The grass is fine to feed a week or 2 after it is fertilized clear up to just before you next fertilize it! Mowing has nothing whatsoever to do with the issue as long as you do not feed the clippings that come from the mower but rather keep a small area to cut by hand with a knife or scissors. The clippings from the mower tend to have gas fumes and mold very easily but hand cut grass from your yard is fine. We have been feeding hand clippings from our yard in the last 6 places we have lived since 1969 when we moved into our first house from an apartment where we had no yard!

You do want to make sure that you have no dogs and cats messing in the area you clip from.

Do these people seriously think that the hay they buy has not been fertilized? Guess what – in most cases it has been!

Remember also that the grass counts as part of the greens part of the diet, not the hay part

It is never a good idea to let guinea pigs eat grass that is constantly mown, and has fertiliser on it. You would be better getting bags of hay from a pet shop, as this ensures all of the toxic chemicals are removed.

Hope this helps

No, its poisonous to them if its fertilized. I just get grass from a pet store.
