Are there any store bought treats that are GOOD for guinea pigs?

I have not found any. You may like to give different types of hay as a treat as that is healthy and offers a variety.

It haven't seen any that are good as such. The girls like wooden bridges and cabins to chew though, not so much a 'treat'

I figured I'd probably get this answer. :) There's many things we can offer as "treats" I was just curious if any at the store would be "ok". Oh well! :)

I can actually get some through Amazon, but shipping would be a bit much!

Aww that's a shame. You might be able to get something similar where you live?

I'll be looking around! :) I know nothing at the chain pet stores will be good, but maybe I can get lucky after researching!

I think basically avoid anything with sugar, grains (flour too) artificial colours or flavours, eggs, dairy. Lol which doesn't leave a lot of choices. ;( I give mine the vitakraft treat sticks VERY occasionally. Eg they have had 2 (each) in the space of the 7months I have had them. And I know they aren't great for them so only give them on special occasions.
