Oxbow's Essentials - Adult Guinea Pig Food is made from timothy grass meal, which includes the high fiber adult guinea pigs need. However, it contains a lower level of protein, calories and calcium than alfalfa-based pellets. Adult animals’ digestive systems do not require the same level as that of younger animals. Essentials - Adult Guinea Pig contains stabilized Vitamin C and an optimal calcium-to-phosphorus ratio that helps maintain a healthy body. When fed with Oxbow grass hays and treats, Essentials - Adult Guinea Pig provides complete stabilized nutrition.
Mature guinea pigs (over 6 months): Feed 1/8 cup pellets daily in addition to unlimited grass hay. Although Cavy Cuisine - Adult Guinea Pig Food is an excellent complete feed for guinea pigs, unlimited access to fresh grass hay should also be provided. Choose from Oxbow’s Western Timothy, Orchard, Oat or Botanical grass hays to provide additional natural fiber. Cavy Cuisine - Adult Guinea Pig Food is not intended for growing, gestating or lactating animals. Feed Cavy Performance - Young Guinea Pig to guinea pigs requiring a higher level of nutrition.
