Calcium Deficiency in Guinea Pigs
Calcium deficiency is easily rectified with dietary supplements. Consult your veterinarian as to the types of supplements and the dosage required.
Living and Management
Make sure that your guinea pig is fed a nutritious and well-balanced diet, as well as any vitamin and mineral supplements your veterinarian may have prescribed.
To prevent calcium deficiency, it is advisable to feed your pet only high-quality commercial guinea pig feed. Moreover, pregnant and nursing guinea pigs require diets that are specifically formulated for their nutritional needs.
If the deficiency is long-term, or is occurring outside of pregnancy and/or nursing, it may be necessary to continue regular dietary supplements to help prevent calcium deficiency from becoming a serious concern.
