About this deal

Fun feeding is a great way of keeping your pet keen to eat and interested in their food. Try hiding bits of food around their enclosure space because it replicates the natural foraging experience. You can also try gnawing toys or paper bags and boxes filled with hay. There are hay tunnels for you to try, too, which offer an exciting experience for your guinea pig. Oxbow Essentials Adult Guinea Pig Food is a premium guinea pig pellet that uses Timothy grass meal as its main ingredient. Timothy hay is expensive, hence the high price of this food, and it gives a food that is high in fibre and somewhat low in protein.

Our complementary guinea pig feed is designed to be fed alongside a diet that is up to 85% hay or fresh grass. It contains extra vitamin C, essential to keep your guinea pig healthy, and linseed to help promote a healthy skin and coat.

Your guinea pig can’t survive on pellets alone. It’s crucial you don’t feed your guinea pigs pellets and nothing else. A guinea pig that is fed solely on pellets will become ill and experience serious health problems, especially with their digestion and teeth, that may be irreversible. So it’s important they get a good balanced daily diet. Can guinea pigs eat pellets instead of hay? Your guinea pig’s food needs to be stored properly so it stays fresh and retains the nutrients that are so good for them. They must be kept free of any moulds or fungus. This 10kg bag of Burgess Excel Guinea Pig Nuggets include additional mint, which not only gives the food a more appealing smell and flavour for your guinea pigs but also helps with good digestion and to ensure a healthy digestive system.It consists of 16% protein, which is slightly lower than ideal, as and 19% fibre, which makes this a high fibre food that complements a regular supply of hay and a good variety of leafy greens throughout the week. Wagg only has 250mg/kg of vitamin C, which is about half of what would be considered ideal, so you may need to provide a supplement or ensure that you feed vegetables that are high in this essential vitamin.

The dry pellet food should supplement a guinea pig’s daily diet which should consist of good quality feeding hay, a cup of safe veggies and a daily portion of nuggets. How to introduce a new pellet food to your guinea pigs Cucumbers are not toxic to guinea pigs and are, therefore, quite safe to feed. They are also low in sugar, which means that they should not cause your cavie to put on weight. However, they also have a high moisture content and are low in vitamin C. This means that while they can eat cucumber, most guinea pigs would benefit from being given better quality and more nutritionally beneficial foods instead. Feed no more than a slice or two, two or three times a week. Conclusion Please ensure that you obtain and retain a proof of posting when you return your goods. This is to protect you in the event that your goods are lost in transit. They also need fresh fruit and veg to keep a healthy diet. Leafy greens like lettuce and cabbage are great options, plus herbs such as basil, rosemary and dill will go down a treat. Seedless chopped apple and mango are yummy additions to keep your guinea pig eating away. They’ll even munch on kale (which will probably make you feel a little guilty about your diet choices).

Our combination of vitamins A, C & E with carefully selected trace elements help to support a healthy immune system.
