Rabbits and Guinea pigs are often kept together as companions, however they have very different dietary requirements. Guinea Pigs require vitamin C in their diet as they are not able to manufacture it themselves and are therefore prone to vitamin C deficiency. Rabbit food does not contain enough vitamin C to supplement a Guinea Pig and therefore they should be fed their own specific diets.
