So I’m building a daily menu for my pig keeping Ca:P in mind. I would like to know how much Ca a pig needs in mg in a day. I read 200mg on some website but that seems awfully high to me as humans need 1,000 I believe and they are not 1/4 our size! Lol

I want to make sure i give her all she needs for healthy bones without too much access

She does not eat pellets.

Thanks so much

Yes! I saw this around the web too. it’s 8 g per kilo of feed. But it doesn’t say per day. Just per kilo. But I think people got confused and thought it meant per day. 8 grams would be an insane amount tho Lol

Here is where it’s from originally:

When my husband tried and I tried to calculate how many grams she ate a day we had no idea.

Does anyone know how much an average guinea pig eats in grams a day? Including hay and 2 cups of veggies? I think if we know that we can go from there maybe! :D
